After denouncing Republicans in his remarks on Thursday, after the release of the September inflation report, President Biden received harsh criticism.
In Los Angeles, Biden made an appearance to discuss the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and its effect on citizens.
His remarks followed the release of a fresh consumer price index report that showed inflation increased by 8.2% in September, compared to the same month the previous year, exceeding earlier projections.
Biden was more upbeat about the news, but he also took the opportunity to charge Republicans with wanting to worsen inflation, should they win back control of Congress in 2022.
Twitter users criticized Biden’s remarks for trying to place the responsibility on Republicans while ignoring the impacts of higher-than-anticipated inflation rates.
He has no idea what's happening with inflation today. They just hand him something to say and he says it. https://t.co/VRGlisMnVn

“Where is this person from? Lordy, what a mess he is. Merely imagines things and believes that everyone else does,” Paul Zeise, a radio personality, stated.
Conservative commentator Chad Felix Greene described Biden as “like a cartoon depiction of a laughably crooked politician.”
Jim Geraghty, senior political reporter for National Review, tweeted the message was “very bad” on a day in which inflation was 8.2 percent, compared to the previous year.
“He’s going to state this after witnessing inflation grow almost every month of his presidency to the worst levels in 40 years due to party-line policies, which, he informs us, every single Republican voted against? Sad,” Matt Whitlock, a Republican communicator, stated.
President of The Lafayette Co. Ellen Carmichael posted, “Freaking sick, guy.”
“It seems as though Grandpa Dementia is endangering the populace. Vote Democratic or he will ruin the economy,” Erick Erickson, a radio presenter, remarked.
Biden Shifts Blame
“They are building the basis for a GOP victory in 2022 because they realize this administration has done a great deal of damage for them to undo in that timeframe (especially with Biden still in the White House).”
“The 2024 story already has it written in: “See? Nothing improved after the midterm elections when Republicans won,” The Daily Wire’s Virginia Kruta said in a prediction.
“Ah, absolutely. Biden can then shift the blame to someone else when Republicans presumably win the November elections and inflation undoubtedly continues to skyrocket,” Ben Kew, the chief editor of El American, concurred.

Republicans harshly slammed Biden over the most recent inflation data, given his track record of playing down or fabricating news.
Despite the reality that inflation increased by 8.5% since July of last year, Biden stated in August that it reached “zero percent” in July. Additionally, when the inflation rate barely hit 6.8% in December, Biden asserted that inflation peaked.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Biden both joined a fundraiser on Thursday for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Some attendees shelled out as much as $50,000 for tickets, which started at $5,000.This article appeared in The Patriot Brief and has been published here with permission.
