Biden spoke on Wednesday in regards to the supply chain points at America’s ports, the “Gutfeld!” host added that it is solely the newest disaster for this president.
“[It] comes amid a slew of bad headlines showing Joe’s metamorphosis into Jimmy Carter is almost complete,” Gutfeld mentioned.
“Americans are quitting jobs at a record pace – 4.3 million in August — inflation surging more than expected in September with consumers paying 5.4 percent more for goods compared to last year. And the White House is warning shoppers their stockings are going to look empty.”
Gutfeld added that White House press secretary Jen Psaki claimed the White House “is not the Postal Service” regardless of the USPS being a federal company.
CBS News correspondent Ed O’Keefe requested if the administration may assure that Americans can have their Christmas packages on time, given the present scenario.
“We are not the Postal Service or UPS or FedEx. We cannot guarantee,” Psaki responded. “What we can do is use every lever at the federal government disposal to reduce delays, to ensure that we are addressing bottlenecks in the system, including ports and the need for them to be open longer hours so that goods can arrive.”
“The federal government that’s in charge of the postal service saying earlier that they aren’t actually the postal service,” Gutfeld mentioned, remarking that the messaging from the Biden White House is that issues are actually “up to us (the American people)” to resolve.
Later, cohost Dana Perino reported that one other news community equated the present inflation to a “two percent pay cut” for working Americans.
“So you can pay more but that means that people are also paying more at the grocery store [and] at the pump,” she mentioned.
