Biden Brushes Off Inflation Data and Stock Market's 1,000 Point Loss

Linkedin Share

If there is one thing that historians will remember about Joe Biden, it’s just how little he seemed to care during his presidency.

This lackadaisical trend began long before he was even elected as he had to be convinced to even run in the first place by desperate Democrats and even Mitt Romney, all of whom just wanted a stop-gap measure to keep Donald Trump from a second term.

Then, as he entered the highest office in the land, Biden’s temperament appeared to be far less enthusiastic than just about any previous President in modern history, allowing our nation to slide into a recession, and allowing the border crisis to rage unabated.

Now, after recent inflation data sent the stock market spiraling into the abyss on Tuesday, the President demonstrated this lack of care once again, and for all to see.

“I think we’re going to be fine,” Biden told reporters Tuesday night when asked about the disappointing data release earlier in the day.

The president spoke briefly to reporters after traveling to Delaware from the White House to vote in his home state’s primary election.

And there was more where that came from:

When asked by a reporter whether he was worried about the latest inflation numbers, Biden replied, “No, I’m not.”

Biden dismissed the month-to-month overall inflation number as “one-tenth of 1 percent” from the previous month, even though grocery prices rose 0.7 percent in August, rent rose 0.7 percent, the cost of electricity rose 1.5 percent, and natural gas prices rose 3.5 percent. Inflation from the previous year is up 8.3 percent.

The data caused the DOW Jones to plummet 1,000 points early in the week, which in turn had “#StockMarketCrash” trending on Twitter.
