“so I’m gonna need you to calm down and back off”
Washington Post finance columnist Michelle Singletary wants Americans to know that despite record-high gasoline and food prices, things aren’t really as bad as you might think.
During an appearance on MSNBC yesterday, she said that people need to stop complaining and realize there are plenty of people who are doing very well.
Everyone can imagine a writer for the Washington Post defending record inflation if it had happened on Trump’s watch, right?

‘Stop Complaining’: WaPo Personal Finance Adviser Dismisses Americans Suffering From Inflation
A Washington Post columnist told Americans to “stop complaining” about the effects of inflation while on MSNBC Wednesday.
“You got to stop complaining when there’s so many people who literally the inflation rate means they may only have two meals instead of three,” Michelle Singletary, a personal finance columnist for the Post, said during “Chris Jansing Reports.” “There are Americans who did extremely well in the last two years in the market.”
“You still have your job,” Singletary said. “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 could eat out.”…
“Stop looking at your portfolio,” Singletary said. “And you know what you can do with all that energy? Help other people, help put some food on the table of somebody else’s house because you have extra.”

All of a sudden, media people and Democrats (but I repeat myself) are making excuses for the nightmare level of inflation happening under Biden.
This is a real headline from the Los Angeles Times:

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm reminded us that people in other countries are paying more for gas. Don’t you feel better already?

It’s nothing but excuses all the way down, and it’s not going to cut it with voters.
