WATCH: White House Claims US Had “Zero Inflation” In July

So the White House is just blatantly lying now? In a must-watch clip from yesterday’s presser, President Joe Biden falsely claimed that inflation is at zero.

On Wednesday, mere hours after federal Consumer Price Index data showed annual inflation at a near four-decade high of 8.5 percent, Biden said the US had “zero inflation” in July – WATCH:

“Today, we received news that our economy had 0 percent inflation in the month of July, 0 percent,” Biden added. “Here’s what that means: while the price of some things go up. went up last month, the price of other things went down by the same amount. The result? Zero inflation last month.”

Like clockwork, other Democrat talking heads began parroting this insane claim, receiving the much-deserved backlash from this egregious lie online.

White House Economic Adviser Jared Bernstein also said Wednesday morning that inflation went up zero percent in July. “This is the first month in over a year that inflation did not go up,” he said in an interview with Fox News.

Biden in his speech would go on to urge Congress to pass the Senate-approved Inflation Reduction Act. Thus contradicting his own message.

As The Post Millennial pointed out, one might assume Biden said “zero” as in “zero increase” but White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted the same original messaging: “We just received news that our economy had 0% inflation in July. While the price of some things went up, the price of others, like gas, clothing, and more, dropped.”

It is fair to assume Jean-Pierre is simply just bad at her job, as evident in most of her terrible responses to questions asked by media reporters. But we are beginning to see this talking point repeated over and over by plenty of others.

Regardless, The New York Post reported that the 8.5 percent inflation number reflects “a demand-driven decline in fuel prices — including gasoline, which hit a record national average of $5 per gallon in mid-June before sliding to a still-high $4 average today — that offset increases in the cost of food, rent, and other goods and services.”

As expected, Biden critics were quick to call out the President for his blatant lies.

These people think we’re stupid. They aren’t even trying to hide their lies anymore.
