President Biden thought it would be a good idea to play games with words during his interview on 60 minutes this week.
Biden declared that the inflation rate is up "just an inch, hardly at all" while holding his fingers out to demonstrate what an inch is.
Inflation, however, is the highest it has ever been.
60 minute interviewer and reporter Scott Pelley reminded President Biden that the annual inflation rate came in at 8.3 percent in August.
“I’m telling the American people that we’re going to get control of inflation,” President Joe Biden tells Scott Pelley. Mr. Biden says his plan to avoid a recession is to “continue to grow the economy.” https://t.co/7SixTE3OMT pic.twitter.com/iwUl3NW4kE

Pelley reminded Biden that it was the highest inflation rate in 40 years, Biden replied, "I got that. But guess what we are. We’re in a position where, for the last several months, it hasn’t spiked. It has just barely — it’s been basically even."
The interview revealed just how deeply President Biden has buried his head in the sand. Either that or he's literally too ignorant to be leading a country and should be retired in a rocking chair somewhere remote.
