No joke. He really thinks you are that stupid, America. After driving up the price of food 33 percent in three years thanks to his disastrous inflationary policies, Joe Biden is portraying himself as standing up for the little guy by attacking the snack food industry over “shrinkflation”, selling smaller packages at the same price to compensate for Biden’s inflation.
On Super Bowl Sunday, the White House posted a video on its social media platforms featuring Biden complaining that there are fewer snack chips in bags, smaller sports drink containers and–what makes ice cream lover Joe the “most angry”–smaller cartons of ice cream.
Last month, Fox Business reported food prices are up over 33 percent under Biden (excerpt):
High inflation has created severe financial pressures for most U.S. households, which are forced to pay more for everyday necessities like food and rent. Food prices are up 33.7% from the start of 2021, while shelter costs are up 18.7%, according to FOX Business calculations.
Energy prices, meanwhile, are up 32.8%.
The burden is disproportionately borne by low-income Americans, whose already-stretched paychecks are heavily affected by price fluctuations.
The typical U.S. household needed to pay $211 more a month in December to purchase the same goods and services it did one year ago because of still-high inflation, according to new calculations from Moody’s Analytics. Americans are paying on average $1,020 more each month compared with the same time two years ago.
Yes, America, it’s an election year and the Democrats really think you are that stupid.
