President Donald Trump’s former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany has sent a warning to Joe Biden that “Americans are sick of inflation.”
On Friday, Democrat President Joe Biden got angry and went on a rambling rant about inflation at the House Democratic Caucus Issues Conference in Philadelphia.
Biden refused to take responsibility for inflation and, instead, he continues to try to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin.
And while Putin’s actions certainly will impact America’s energy costs, inflation has been rising for months before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
“This off-year election, in my view, may be the most important off-year election in modern history,” Biden said.
“Because we know what happens, we know the fundamental change that shifts if we lose the House and Senate.
“The only thing I’ll have then is a veto pen.
“I’m sick of this stuff,” the president said as he appeared to become angered.
“We have to talk about it because the American people think the reason for inflation is the government spending more money – simply not true.
“Make no mistake, inflation is largely the fault of Putin.
“I love Republicans saying Biden’s going to stop the Keystone Pipeline.
“And I did. And that’s the reason prices went up.
“Folks, let’s get something straight here: The Keystone Pipeline was two years away and had been 2 percent finished.
“Give me a break.
“Why aren’t they out pumping oil?
“Why aren’t they out pumping oil? What’s happened?
“Well, the oil companies and executives they don’t want to pump more oil – although they have every capacity to do so, nothing is slowing them up from doing it if they want to.
“Why? Rather than spend the profits from the increased price of gasoline, they would rather take those profits and buy back stock.
“Rather than take that money and invest it in pumping new oil – not a joke, not a joke.
“Along with our partners and allies, we stepped up pressure on corrupt Russian billionaires.
“You see some of these yachts? 450-feet long, I’m serious, hundreds of millions of dollars in value.
“The totality of our economic sanctions and export controls are crushing, crushing the Russian economy.
“The ruble has lost more than half its value.
“You know what the value of a ruble is versus a dollar?
“You’d need 200 rubles to equal one dollar today. Two hundred.
“Credit rating agencies have downgraded Russia’s government to junk status.
“Although we will not fight the third world war in Ukraine.
“The idea that we’re going to send in offensive equipment and have planes and trains and tanks going in with American pilots and American crews – just understand, don’t kid yourself, no matter what you all say: that’s called World War III, OK?
“Now it’s true we got some Republican friends to help on the infrastructure act. But we’re talking how many in the House? Thirteen? Fourteen?
“I mean come on.
“I was happy for them, don’t get me wrong, and every one of them got attacked, but have you noticed that every new bridge, every trench dug to … take out lead pipes – every trench dug – there’s a Republican standing there saying, ‘This is a great thing, wonderful, we did it.’
“Even Mitch McConnell for God’s sake,” Biden said.
