We learned this morning that inflation hit a four-decade high of 7.9 percent in February. President Biden has told Americans to buckle up because the “Putin price hike” is going to hit all of us hard. On March 3, Sen. Joe Manchin said he’d “gladly pay 10 cents more a gallon to help Ukraine,” which led Politico’s Sam Stein to note that Manchin would stomach inflation to help Ukraine but not Biden’s domestic agenda (admitting in the process that Biden’s domestic agenda would create inflation).
We’re way past 10 cents a gallon, but actor Angela Belcamino replied to Biden’s tweet about the inflation report by saying she’d proudly pay 7.9 percent inflation to defeat Vladimir Putin.
Inflation rose to 7.9% in February and I'll proudly pay it to defeat Putin.

She does realize that was February’s report, right? The “Putin price hike” won’t show up until March’s report is released.

February Inflation had nothing to do with Putin.

You're adorable if you believe that most of the inflation is because of Russia/Ukraine

This makes no sense. Inflation has been rising for a year now.

Russia invaded Ukraine on 2/24 so the February print of 7.9% is 100% Joe Biden inflation

If only inflation could rise just a little bit more, that would be the final nail in the coffin for Putin!

How does paying more for shit help defeat Putin?

We’re confused … the tweet from Biden she was replying to said that he was going to fight to bring down the everyday prices that are squeezing Americans — does that mean he wants Putin to win?
