White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain (sometimes referred to by the inadvertently insulting nickname of “Biden’s Brain”) had a shocking “Let them eat fruitcake” moment. Klain enthusiastically retweeted a post from a Harvard professor, dismissing worries about inflation and the supply chain crisis that might ruin Americans’ Christmas shopping as “high class problems.”

An RNC spokesman fired back, "Struggling to pay for food, fuel, and housing because of rising prices is not a ‘high class problem.’ Biden is making everyone worse off, but instead of stopping the damage, their strategy is to try to gaslight Americans."

For the record, inflation is actually something that harms the lower and middle classes far more than the wealthy. If you have billions, like the Democrats’ Silicon Valley socialist donors, you don’t feel it when prices double. But if you’re on an hourly wage or a fixed income, the recent steep rises in the prices of food, gasoline, home heating and other necessities mean you have to make painful choices about what to give up to keep from going into debt.

The supply chain problems don’t just mean wealthy people will have fewer expensive gadgets to give at Christmas. Those are affecting the prices and availability of all goods. And if stores can’t get stock for Christmas, their most important selling season of the year, then whatever small businesses the Democrats actually allowed to survive the pandemic could go under.

President Biden did actually address the supply chain crisis (as usual, he showed up an hour late, spoke for 10 minutes and left without taking questions.)

Biden praised the “heck of a job” his “Supply Chain Disruption Team” was doing (just to be clear: are they in charge of solving or creating supply chain disruptions? Because if it’s the latter, they are doing a heck of a job.) He also seems to think he’s solved the problem by getting the Port of Los Angeles and unions to agree to work around the clock unloading ships. Good luck finding fully vaccinated people who will actually take those jobs and enough truckers to transport all those goods. Meanwhile, press secretary Jen Psaki was already warning that the Administration can’t guarantee Christmas presents will arrive on time.

Finally, if the crisis is averted and Christmas shopping saved, you might want to thank Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. Although I’m sure the White House would take credit for it, just like they invented the COVID vaccines.

    New flash! Trump’s brain made a revealing statement (in legal circles they’re called excited utterances but you aren’t familiar with those - you just file bogus Bar association complaints against panhandle attorneys who had the audacity to protect citizens). But anyway back to the Orange God your family worships and his revealing statement at a GOP Fundraiser: he’s not into golden showers or women urinating on him! What?? You’re okay with though, right? And you’re ok with “conservative Christian” family man, DeSantis promoting “F*ck Joe Biden” on social media. Hypocrites all of you. God is NOT ok with y’all using Him for nefarious purposes. You were supposed to be a pastor. Yet you project anything but Christianity! Shame on ALL GOP who support the lie and the liars.

    Why is no one talking about the "High Class" comment? This implies that we have a "Low Class" as well and it should infuriate everyone as it did me. This country does not and should not have classes. We have low income, middle income, and high income earners. (And zero income earners, but don't get me started on that) Being in a lower income bracket does not make you "Low Class". I consider myself to be in a higher income bracket, but definitely don't consider myself "High Class". This reveals how the left portrays the rest of us to be "Low Class" and themselves to be "High Class". Frankly, I think it's disgusting.

    The people in this administration are making insane statements. Like klain actually thinking inflation and empty shelves only affect the "high class" people. (They may be rich as all get out--but not all of them are high class.)

    pelosi, biden and circleback jan saying the cost of the 3.5T bill will be zero.

    And circle back jan saying how horrible that businesses, after being hit with higher taxes, would pass that cost to the consumer!!!

    You can tell these folks either never lived in the real world or they've been in their alternate world so long they have forgotten all the regular US citizens and how they work and pay bills, etc.
