Americans are feeling the effect of Biden’s inflation in their wallets, and they’ll especially feel it this Thanksgiving. Families can expect to pay more for just about everything that goes into a Thanksgiving feast in a couple of weeks, marking the most expensive Thanksgiving in history.
The New York Times published a story Monday explaining how nearly every aspect of Americans’ Turkey Day feasts will be more expensive this year from spices and ingredients to the aluminum pan that holds the bird and fixings. It’s not just a few extra cents here and there, it’s everything. And, as The New York Times concludes, “Thanksgiving 2021 could be the most expensive meal in the history of the holiday.”
Even though The New York Times erroneously concludes that “There is no single culprit” for the record-high cost of this year’s Thanksgiving, The Times does highlight the effects of Biden’s mismanagement of inflation and the country’s transportation infrastructure.
“The nation’s food supply has been battered by a knotted supply chain, high transportation expenses, labor shortages, trade policies and bad weather,” The Times writes of Biden’s many bungled responses. “Inflation is at play, too. In September, the Consumer Price Index for food was up 4.6 percent from a year ago. Prices for meat, poultry, fish and eggs soared 10.5 percent.”
MSNBC Morning Joe employees were shocked when Mike read the New York Times reports on the upcoming feast.
“No, you wouldn’t believe it,” Mika said. “Almost every ingredient in a traditional American Thanksgiving, from the disposable aluminum roasting pan to the pumpkin pie, will cost more.”
I would be willing to bet more Americans than ever will be saying “let’s go Brandon” this holiday season.
