All must be good with inflation and the economy and the border, because President Joe Biden is taking Saturday to just be Joe, and he’s earned it. First, he got within sniffing distance of a young girl who looked seriously uncomfortable as he put his hands on her shoulders and said something completely inappropriate. Then he had a standout speech about coffee machines and treated himself to an ice cream cone.
Tyler Pager, White House reporter for the Washington Post, relays that Biden ordered the double-dip chocolate chip in a waffle cone.

Don’t you think you pressed too hard asking him what flavor he got?

How much did it cost? More than last year?
— The Points Ninja (@thepointsninja) October 15, 2022
That’ll be $14, sir

Sir, can you ask how much a waffle cone with two scoops cost on January 20, 2021 and what led to it being more today?

I might be picky, but I would prefer a president for whom successfully ordering ice cream is not considered important news.

How are you not embarrassed?

Does it ever occur to you that something as inconsequential as ordering an ice cream cone is not even remotely news worthy?
Seriously, does that even cross your mind?

It’s endearing and folksy. Like his tales about the house fire and his Amtrak rides.
Was this before or after he creeped on a middle school girl?

I remember when it was a scandal that Trump got two scoops 🙄

It seems we’re back to the ice cream alert on the journalism scale. There’s actually one sad woman in the comments who says the increase in price isn’t inflation but “price gouging.” Big Ice Cream is on notice.
