The President has surrounded him with some world-class experts, oh wait.
Biden’s Chief of Staff was eviscerated on Twitter for endorsing a claim that the recent inflation hitting American’s wallets is a “high class problem.” Yes, you read that correctly. Ron Klain thinks that Americans concerned about spikes in costs in grocery stores and the gas pump is a classist issue.
Fox News reports:
“Most of the economic problems we’re facing (inflation, supply chains, etc.) are high class problems. We wouldn’t have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent. We would instead have had a much worse problem,” Harvard professor Jason Furman wrote in a tweet that Klain retweeted, saying, “This,” with emoji hands pointing downward.
Furman served as chair of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Barack Obama.
Since taking office, the Biden administration has overseen a rising inflation rate that reached its highest point in 13 years. The surge has been accompanied in a rise in prices for food, gas, cars, TVs, and a variety of imported goods.
Take a look below at some of the responses to Klain’s tweet.
