BIDEN: ‘Do I Take Any Blame For Inflation? No… It Was Already Here When I Got Here, Man’
President Joe Biden has declared that he chooses not to “take any of the blame for inflation,” claiming “ it was already there when I got here, man.”
Biden made the remarks on Friday during a “Jobs For Americans” press conference.
“Do I take any blame for inflation? No,” Biden snapped when asked.
“Why not,” the reporter who asked the original question queried.
Biden replied, “Because it was already here when I got here, man. Remember what the economy was like when I got here? Jobs were hemorrhaging, inflation was rising. We weren’t manufacturing a damn thing here. We were in real economic difficulty. That’s why I don’t, thank you.”
