U.S. House Rep Jim Jordan (R-OH) had harsh words today for Joe Biden after a report said that he was blaming his aides for 40-year high inflation.
Jordan pointed out in a tweet that “President Biden promised during the campaign that he’d ‘take responsibility’ for his actions ‘instead of blaming others.’”
“So why is he reportedly blaming his STAFF for inflation?” Jordan wondered.

Biden is reportedly blaming aides as Bidenflation will cost American households on average an extra $5,200 in 2022, or $433 per month, according to Bloomberg.
Unhappy that rising prices are hurting his political position, instead of taking responsibility for the price hikes, Biden has reportedly shifted the blame to aides for not confronting the spike in costs partly generated by his own fiscal and energy policies.
The Washington Post reported, “Biden has privately grumbled to top White House officials over the administration’s handling of inflation, expressing frustration over the past several months that aides were not doing enough to confront the problem directly.”
The White House decided to mount a public relations blitz to blunt inflation’s political damage on the Democrat Party this week instead of altering fiscal and energy policies.
After the White House claimed in 2021 that inflation was “transitory,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Tuesday directly admitted during a press interview that she and the president had failed to accurately assess that inflation would climb to a 40-year-high as a part of the PR campaign.
Yellen acknowledged, “Well, look, I think I was wrong then about the path that inflation would take. As I mentioned, there have been unanticipated and large shocks to the economy that have boosted energy and food prices and supply bottlenecks that have affected our economy badly that I didn’t — at the time didn’t fully understand, but we recognize that now.”
Conservative journalist Paul Bedard mocked a Post headline in a tweet that said, “Inflation fallout rankles Biden,” and asked, “Rankles Biden?”
