White House staffers were trying to get reporters out of the room when Doocy called Biden, “Do you question inflation? Do you think inflation is a political liability in the midterms? ”

“What a stupid son of ab****,” the president added.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the price of consumer goods rose 7% in 2021, the highest level in 40 years.
Fox News poll published on Sunday found that 85 percent are worried about inflation and 48 percent believe Biden’s policies are primarily responsible for the spike.
For comparison, during the time of former President Donald Trump in office, inflation fluctuated around 2 percent annual.
Of course, inflation will hit people where they live, and in a sense, an implicit tax on their income.
Nearly 2 trillion dollars American rescue planpassed in March 2021, extending enhanced unemployment benefits through September of last year and increasing the child’s “tax credit” up to $300 per month, per child.
Both of these policies are inflationary because they discourage people from going back to work, which means employers have to raise wages to try to fill positions, resulting in higher consumer prices.
In addition, people had a lot of money printed and borrowed from the government to spend. More dollars chasing fewer goods and services equals inflation.
Democrats appear to be struggling midterms.
One Gallup survey released last week showed a 14-point swing in favor of Republicans, giving the GOP the biggest advantage since 1991.

Glenn Youngkin’s win in the race for governor of Virginia and the GOP toppling the state’s House of Representatives – a Biden state won 10 percentage points in 2020, mind you – just one of the venues in the year-end election last November signaled a challenging midterm for Democrats.
Doocy asked a reasonable question. Biden should have answered it instead of emphatically.
Doocy seemed to have taken it all in in stride, joking to Fox News host Jesse Watters after the incident, “Nobody has checked the facts on him and said it’s not true. “
