• Anyone who questions Biden's economic policy is called a racist

    Believe it or not, in 1980, which wasn't that long ago, Venezuela was
    the richest country in Latin America. It had the highest wages. It had
    the best health care and education. It also had, by the standards of
    the region anyway, a famously stable democracy. Then came an energy
    crisis, and Venezuela wound up with inflation. At times, it reached
    100% a year. Inflation makes people poor. So, in a very short time, the
    poverty rate in Venezuela doubled.

    By 1995, 66% of all Venezuelans were impoverished. Getting poorer tends
    to make voters radical. So inevitably, Venezuela got radical politics.
    You know what happened next. Venezuela is now rated one of the most
    miserable places on planet Earth. A few years ago, citizens in Caracas
    were reduced to eating zoo animals. There was no food and for that
    matter, there was no electricity. So, in just half a lifetime, an
    advanced society had reverted to the Stone Age.

    Once you get inflation, there's no pretending you've done a good job.
    You have not done a good job and everybody knows it.

    So, you can see why the Biden administration is very worried about
    this. Joe Biden has historically low approval ratings. Voters say
    inflation is their top concern. Those two facts are directly related.
    Biden's most pressing task right now is reassuring Americans that he understands they're suffering under inflation and under a rapidly
    worsening economy, and he's got a plan to fix it. If he can't convince Americans of that, it may be a long time before we have another
    Democratic president.

    Thankfully, Joe Biden has a plan, or at least a new publicist, a
    silver-tongued wordsmith/policy guru called Karine Jean-Pierre. It is
    Karine Jean-Pierre's job to take this message of economic hope to the
    American people and save the Biden administration. She started Monday.
    Here were her first words from the podium.

    KARINE JEAN-PIERRE: I am obviously acutely aware that my presence at
    this podium represents a few firsts. I am a Black, gay, immigrant
    woman, the first of all three of those to hold this position.

    So, that was a little confusing. It wasn't actually about America. It
    was about her...


    Why did she have to tell the American people that is a black gay
    immigrant? Why didn't she just come out and do her job?

    This would have never happened under Trump. He hired people based on
    their qualifications for the job, not because of their race, sexuality
    or immigration status.
