In an attempt to fool the American people, Biden falsely claimed we had “zero percent inflation.”
Joe Biden’s recent ZERO inflation claim has once again proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that his brain is suffering from some sort of decline and needs to take a test to confirm the diagnosis immediately.
“I just want to say a number. Zero. Today we received news that our economy had zero inflation in the month of July,” Biden stated during a speech at the White House.
“Zero percent,” Biden repeated proudly. “Zero inflation last month.”
But in reality, is that it went from 9.1% to 8.5%. He can falsely claim they’re on top of inflation and probably fool people, but he can’t claim inflation is zero – 8.5% is not 0%.

This is, of course, untrue since energy, oil, and gas prices are still up by dozens of percentage points since last July. Yet the corporate press jumped on the White House messaging bandwagon and promoted July’s numbers as a triumph for the shrinking economy.
Ron Klain, Biden’s White House chief of staff, also retweeted Biden’s claim.
National Public Radio’s Asma Khalid added necessary context to that idea, tweeting, “To be clear, inflation dipped from a 40-year high. The Labor Department reported this morning that consumer prices in July were 8.5% higher than a year ago.”

How much more do Democrats need to see before they finally give up the ghost and actually get this guy a cognitive test?
We all know they are trying to cover this up, but it’s clearly impossible to do so. The things they do in order to try and hide the truth only make it more obvious to the rest of the American people.
