Hello Americans, I’m Todd Starnes. Stand by for news and commentary next.
The Biden Administration is shrugging off concerns about inflation and supply chain issues.
The White House Chief of Staff, Ronald Klain, called it a high-class problem, pointing to comments from a Harvard professor.
But let’s get real – the wealthy are not struggling to pay for food, housing and gas.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki lashed out at reporters who wondered if there would be toys under the Christmas tree in December.
Psaki said the White House was not responsible for delivering presents to good little boys and girls.
“We are not the Postal Service or UPS or FedEx; we cannot guarantee,” Psaki said in part.
And Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg chuckled as he told Americans to do their Christmas shopping in October.
“I think there have always been two kinds of Christmas shoppers,” Buttigieg told CNN. “There’s the ones who have all their list completed by Halloween, and then there’s people like me who show up at the mall on Christmas Eve…if you’re in that latter bucket, obviously there’s going to be more challenges.”
Inflation is at an all-time high. The borders have been overrun. Americans are still held hostage in Afghanistan. Crime is surging across the nation. And now the Biden Administration has found a way to ruin Christmas.
