“He [Biden] was saying, you know, everything is Putin’s price hikes, inflation is Putin’s fault.” Obama-Biden strategist David Axelrod said Tuesday, on his “Hackon Tap” podcast. “People don’t believe that either. They know that they had inflation before this. They know that gas prices were high before this. They haven’t dialed this in quite right yet. You can’t blame everything in the economy on Putin.”
Responding to February’s report of 7.8 percent year-on-year inflation, Obama-Biden economic aide Steve Rattner said via Twitter: “Well, no. These are Feb #’s and only include small Russia effect. This is Biden’s inflation and he needs to own it.”
When even his prominent Democrat allies call Joe Biden out for his relentless deception, it’s well past time for him and his hacks to stop lying to the American people.
