Reuters is used to doing some heavy lifting on behalf of the Biden administration. Here’s one such example from this past March after Biden tripped repeatedly while going up the steps to Air Force One:

See what they did there?
But Reuters isn’t limited to covering for Biden’s stumbles, as evidenced by this spin on the rise in consumer prices:

Wow, somebody just earned several State Media Points.
That is some headline indeed.

Imagine if you will that Reuters headline if Trump were still president and the same things were occurring.

Does Paul Krugman write those headlines?
*unprecedented amount of government money flowing through the economy.
There, fixed your headline.

Maybe another 6 trillion in spending is the way to fix this? https://t.co/oMxjsXlSZE

Well, Biden did recently meet with Jimmy Carter, so maybe he got some pointers from the former president.
