Welcome to the wild world of Bidenflation! As President Joe Biden gears up for his (hopefully) last year in office, the United States is grappling with the soaring cost of living. It’s like a never-ending game of “how much can they squeeze out of our wallets today?”
White House Refuses to Address Biden's Surprise Over $6 Smoothie
— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) January 18, 2024
The latest episode of the Bidenflation saga takes us to a coffee shop in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where Biden was left stunned at the audacity of a $6 smoothie. Yes, you heard that right—a whopping $6 for a simple smoothie! But hey, if you think that’s bad, wait until he sees the price of everyday grocery items. Someone get this man a fainting couch, because he’s in for a real shocker.
When grilled about Biden’s smoothie sticker shock, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried to brush it off as a joke. A joke? Really? Is the economy one big punchline to the Biden administration? They’re laughing all the way to the bank while the rest of us are cleaning out our piggy banks just to put food on the table.
But hold on, folks! Jean-Pierre didn’t stop there. Instead of tackling the issue head-on, she pivoted to boasting about 16 million small businesses starting and filling out applications like it’s some kind of economic miracle. Sorry, but throwing around big numbers doesn’t put food on the table or gas in the car.
Let’s talk cold, hard numbers, shall we? Food prices are up a whopping 33.7 percent, shelter costs have surged by 18.7 percent, and like a cruel joke, energy prices have skyrocketed by 32.8 percent. It’s like a never-ending Black Friday for the basic essentials of life. According to Moody’s Analytics, the average U.S. household had to cough up an extra $211 in December just to keep up with the rising prices. And get this—Americans are forking over a mind-boggling $1,020 more each month compared to just two years ago.
So, while Biden sips on his $6 smoothie and cracks jokes with the media, everyday Americans are left feeling the economic squeeze. Looks like the only “plan” here is to watch prices soar while hardworking folks struggle to make ends meet. Brace yourselves, folks. It’s going to be a bumpy ride through Bidenflation.
