VP Harris fumbles her way through simple question about inflation

Undoubtedly, one of the top issues facing Americans, and politicians in 2022, is President Joe Biden’s soaring inflation, which has caused a major disruption in the U.S. economy as it attempted to heal in the wake of a global pandemic.

Even more frightening is the fact that our top leaders, including Vice President Kamala Harris, appear to not be capable of answering simple and reasonable questions about the issue, as was evidenced in a recent CBS News interview that showed Harris stumbling through a basic question about inflation, Fox News reports

Her fumbled answer also happens to come on the heels of revelations that Harris reportedly doesn’t read many of the staff briefings she’s handed each week, further proving that she simply doesn’t care about the everyday American citizen who’s hurting right now.

“We have to address the fact that we have got to deal with the fact that folks are paying for gas, paying for groceries, and are — need solutions to it. So let’s talk about that,” Harris said when asked if she thought the White House terming the inflation problem as “transitory” might have been a mistake.

Harris continued: “Short-term solution includes what we need to do around the supply chain, right? So, we went to the ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, Savannah, Georgia, and said, ‘Hey, guys, no more five days a week, eight hours a day; 24/7, let’s move the products because people need their product – they need what they need.'”

She ended her non-answer by pivoting to the failed Build Back Better plan, suggesting somehow that if the multi-trillion-dollar spending bill is passed, it will somehow alleviate the problem.

A number of non-partisan economists have already predicted that inflation will last well into 2022, clearly a different scenario than what the White House painted as a temporary problem for America.

Perhaps if Harris would take a few moments out of her busy day of doing nothing at all, she would be a little more in tune with what’s happening on the ground.
