On the heels of New York Democrats blaming Mayor Eric Adams for convincing people that crime exists, we’ve got MSNBC’s Joy Reid trying to blame Republicans for inventing inflation.

What you’re seeing here is a movement that has completely lost the argument and decided to just take one look at reality and jump out of the plane without a parachute on.
We’re way beyond Peter Jennings claiming that voters threw a tantrum or Van Jones’ ‘Whitelash’.
Having lost the argument on crime and inflation, the Left has decided to double down on these being imaginary problems invented by Republicans. And then claiming that Republicans have brilliantly convinced people that crime and inflation are things that actually exist.
Joy Reid, who was born in 1968, which means that she was a kid, but still around the last time inflation went stratospheric, pretends that Republicans somehow taught people the word ‘inflation’ and then people are ignorantly using the word to describe all sorts of prejudices and problems.
The Democrats should be sharpening their argument in the final stretch of the midterms, instead, they’ve decided to go full Iraqi Information Minister on the problem.
But then again this SNL Carter parody is now the actual political program of California Democrats.
Also apparently Republicans taught the word inflation to Saturday Night Live and Dan Ackroyd.
