Joy Reid Jumps The Shark, Claims Inflation Isn't Real: It's Just A 'Buzzword'
Let's go, Joy Reid! Back at it again. The MSNBC talking head will say anything to defend Joe Biden's failing administration including warp reality. In a recent segment, Reid claimed that inflation isn't a thing. According to her, it's just a Republican 'buzzword' used to bury Biden's approval rating.
“Republicans jump on the inflation buzzword bandwagon, ignoring all the signs of America's economic comeback. Senator Elizabeth Warren joins me next with the truth about our economy,” she said in the second of two teases.
Reid kept up the snark before bringing in Warren: “Republicans want you to believe the economy isn't doing well, that's terrible. But, in reality, unemployment is at its lowest point since before the pandemic began.”
Incredibly, Reid then defended inflation, saying what while “[p]rices are higher” and while that’s “never good,” it’s fine because “Americans are also spending a record amount of money that was pent up during the pandemic, which economics 101 will tell you drives prices up, aka inflation.”
In turn, she said the problem has boiled down to the stubbornness of American consumers: “[T]hat conflict between how much we want to spend and what we can get into our hands quickly is contributing to how pessimistic many Americans feel about the economy. Consumer confidence is its lowest in a decade[.]”
Making an even bigger fool of herself, Reid then claimed that gas prices aren't on the rise because of Biden—Though he has killed all new oil projects. According to Reid, gas has been high we just didn't know about it because we were all in lockdown.
"[A] lot of people are upset about gas prices but people weren't driving for a year and, somehow, gas prices still went up. There have been some calls to investigate these oil companies because also, they don't really like Build Back Better either because it deals with their issues on the environment but how is it when people stay home for a year, suddenly, the price of gas went up?

Reid has really outdone herself lately twisting reality to fit a pro-Biden narrative but it won't save her favorite creeper as Biden's numbers continue to drop. The thing that Reid has failed to understand here is that Biden is losing supporters for a multitude of reasons. I can't imagine having lying tusks like Reid on his side will help him either.
People see through this kind of garbage and they're sick of it.
