79-year-old Joe Biden appeared to vent his frustration in a pre-taped interview on CBS’ “60 Minutes” when he was asked what he can you do better and faster to combat inflation amid August’s inflation rising to 8.3% from last year.
“Mr. President, as you know, last Tuesday the annual inflation rate came in at 8.3%. The stock market nosed dived,” Scott Pelley told the Democrat career politician, referring to when DOW, S&P 500, and the NASDAQ fell sharply while Biden was delivering celebratory remarks over the Inflation Reduction Act last week.
“What can you do better and faster?” Pelley asked Biden bluntly.
“First of all, let’s put this in perspective”, Biden said, deflecting from the question. “Inflation month to month was just an inch, hardly at all.”
When asked to clarify over whether the 8.3 inflation rate is good news, Biden contended that is was “not good news”.
“You’re making it sound like all of a sudden — my God, it went to 8.2%,” he said, appearing to vent his frustration.
Pelly informed the career politician directly to his face that inflation is at his highest in 40 years, prompting Biden to snap: “I got that!”
“But guess where we are? We’re in a position where the last several months, it hasn’t spiked. It’s just barely — been basically even.” Biden said.
“The annual inflation rate came in at 8.3 percent…What can you do better and faster to [combat inflation]?”
