Speaking of stunningly out-of-touch media members, Washington Post columnist Michelle Singletary is getting major blowback for her appearance Wednesday on MSNBC in which she arrogantly lectured Americans to “stop complaining” about inflation and high gas prices because “Overall, many Americans are not suffering as much as they think they are.”
She said a lot of Americans are “uncomfortable that they’re spending more, but they are not gonna go under…There are Americans who did extremely well in the last two years in the market. You still have your job. And yeah, it’s costing you more for gas, but guess what? You’re still going to take that holiday, that Fourth of July vacation, you can still eat out, so I’m gonna need you to calm down and back off.” Yeah, how dare you peasants complain when you're not totally bankrupt yet?
She also accused them of “thinking” a recession into existence with their negative attitudes.
As reported at the link, conservative commentators suggested that the GOP run this as a campaign ad to show working Americans exactly what "progressives" in Washington think of them.
