It’s been a while since I have talked about a Campus Reform video, but their latest one is quite intriguing.
Campus Reform’s Addison Smith went to Georgetown University in Washington D.C. to ask students their thoughts on higher prices due to inflation affecting Thanksgiving.
He began the video by talking about how “Last year, Americans enjoyed the least expensive Thanksgiving dinner in decades. Just one year later, and on the heels of sky-high inflation, reports warn that this time around could be the most costly Thanksgiving feast in American history.”
One year is all Brandon needed to take us from the cheapest Thanksgiving ever to the most expensive one. I’d be impressed if I weren’t so pissed.
At any rate, throughout the video, Smith asks the students their thoughts on the rising prices, inflation and the economy in general. And while many largely weren’t paying much attention to these things, everyone ultimately agreed not only that inflation is pretty bad right now (particularly after being told that the price for Turkey is up 22% and gas is up 50% since last year), but that the situation was better under President Trump than under Brandon. Even one who didn’t want to admit this to be true couldn’t deny that it was true.
This is particularly bad for Brandon given that college students tend to be Leftists, or at least rather liberal, and typically vote for Democrats. Not ONE of these students could deny that Brandon has made things worse in the months that he has illegitimately been in power. This is rather reflective of the awful poll numbers even Leftist polls show for the child predator.
But the fake news media, as I have said in a previous article, will either minimize the damage of the Bidenflation we are seeing or will outright gaslight you into believing that things are going well. MSNBC’s Joy Reid has somehow managed to do both.
In one of her latest segments, Lying Joy Reid made the claim that inflation was just a “buzzword bandwagon” by Republicans, adding that the GOP wants people “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,” and absurdly claims that that it’s okay that “prices are higher” 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.”
This idiot is really out here trying to tell us that we have inflation because people are spending more money and that creates inflation. That we have inflation because we have inflation.
What, there is high inflation and Americans are spending a record amount of money? I wonder if those two things are related in any way. Hmm.
But it’s not just that bit of idiocy that made up her moronic segment. After claiming that it’s okay that we have inflation because Americans are spending more money and unemployment is the lowest since the pandemic began (tens of millions lost their jobs, so this is far from an accomplishment. Not to mention millions are not even looking for work anymore because they either adapted to a new/better source of income or are content with dependency on government stimulus, so the real unemployment rate is far higher than these people claim), she then went on to blame AMERICAN CONSUMERS for the lowest consumer confidence in a decade and for believing that we are in a bad economy.
“[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.”
So it’s people’s fault that they think we have a bad economy, not the fact we have a bad economy. People want to spend their money and are disillusioned by the fact prices are much higher than under Trump, and it’s THEIR fault?
Hilariously, she then goes on to say: “So – so, the economy isn’t bad. It’s just that people are mad because everything is late and things cost a little bit more.”
Yeah, things being late and costing more is a sign of a GREAT economy.
And if that wasn’t enough, she then goes on to claim that the only reason this is happening or that we’re even talking about it is because… get this… Republicans want to get back in power.
Right, because one couldn’t make the same claim that the ONLY reason Leftist hacks like Reid are making all these claims is because they want Democrats to remain in power.
Make no mistake, that really is the only reason they are saying all this. They see how much Brandon is fumbling the bag, how unpopular he and his borderline-prostitute of a VP are, and how screwed the Democrats are for 2022.
So they lie and lie and lie, as they always have, to get the result they want. The economy was doing fantastic throughout Trump’s tenure (so much so that Obama repeatedly tried and failed to take credit for it), and they largely couldn’t attack it until the pandemic began. But any rational person could tell that the economy started doing poorly because of the decisions by governors and local authorities to shut everything down.
Now, Brandon doesn’t get that as an excuse. States have been open/opening back up for months now, even the deep blue ones. There is still insanity surrounding the virus, but the reason this is such a bad economy is because of Brandon’s own disastrous policies and the Democrats wanting to spend trillions upon trillions of dollars.
Odd how last year, under rather similar circumstances regarding the virus, we weren’t seeing such awful inflation rates. So the college students are correct in their assessment that things were better under Trump.
The biggest difference between this year and last year is who is at the helm. And we have a senile child abuser who isn’t even allowed to take any questions from the press apart from pre-approved ones leading this country (illegitimately at that).
One of the students in that Campus Reform video said that she was planning to go to Miami over Thanksgiving. Assuming she’s going to drive there, that is over 1000 miles of travel taking the shortest route. And that’s just on the way there, nevermind on the trip back. That girl is going to be spending a LOT of money on this trip just on gas alone, not to mention the food and other basic travel necessities she has to buy which have also had their prices gone up because of the Brandon administration.
But since Lying Joy Reid is rich, she doesn’t have to worry about inflation at all and has the gall to tell other people that they shouldn’t either.
“Let them eat cake”, as the saying goes of the out-of-touch jackasses.
“For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.”
