The man becomes president, starts spending endless amounts of money and threatening to end fossil fuels, and prices go up. But everyone else is to blame.
According to the Washington Times:
President Biden on Tuesday blamed Russia’s war in Ukraine, corporate greed, the pandemic and the policies of “ultra-MAGA Republicans” for causing record-high inflation.
He insisted that Democrats’ big spending didn’t spur the highest price increases in 40 years, though some economists disagree.
“It’s not because of spending,” Mr. Biden said when asked whether he is to blame for inflation. “I think our policies help, not hurt.”
In a White House speech aimed at soothing voters’ frustration in the midterm election year, Mr. Biden said he is tackling inflation on several fronts without cooperation from Republicans. He stood in front of a blue banner bearing the phrases “tackling inflation” and “lowering costs.”
“I want every American to know that I’m taking inflation very seriously, and it’s my top domestic priority,” the president said.
