Joe Biden sat down with the Associated Press on Thursday, finally, to give an actual media interview.
Sadly, he was not pressed on false claims he made during that interview.
That, however, did not stop Fox News’ Peter Doocy from openly calling out the lie regarding inflation during the daily White House press briefing.
The only thing I did not like about this with Doocy is that he allowed White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre off the hook way too early.
Earlier in the day, Biden had stated, “We’re in a stronger position than any nation in the world to overcome this inflation.”
He later added, “If it’s my fault, why is it the case in every other major industrial country in the world that inflation is higher?
“You ask yourself that? I’m not being a wise guy.”
Rating… 100 percent FALSE
Currently, inflation in the United States is at 8.6 percent.
Here are the inflation rates for other major countries around the globe, per Fox News: Germany at 7.9%, France at 5.2%, Japan at 2.5%, India at 7.04%, Canada and Italy at 6.8%, and Saudi Arabia at 2.2%.
Doocy pressed the White House on this issue, but listen to her answer after Doocy calls Jean-Pierre out on Biden’s lie…
After Doocy called her out, all she did was reiterate her claim from the first round, which was a LIE.
Doocy explained further during a later Fox News segment…
These people are amazing. They are convinced that people will believe it if they say it enough.
I honestly cannot believe the Associated Press allowed Biden to give that answer in the first place and was not armed to the teeth with inflation stats knowing full well Biden would try to lay the number off.
This, of course, is not to mention that Biden’s excuses on inflation are also wrong, especially regarding oil prices.
That theory has been debunked numerous times and the amount of oil we get from Russia has been offset by the oil released from the reserve, so that conflict is more or less having zero impact on the current oil price.
Lies… that is all we get from this administration. Every day, and a lot of them.
