Joe Biden Makes Creepy Comment About ‘Tasting’ American’s Frustration

Former President Bill Clinton once said “I feel your pain” but President Joe Biden has another slogan.

During a press conference on Tuesday about rising inflation he said he could “taste” the frustration of Americans.

“Look, I know you gotta be frustrated. I know! I can taste it,” the president said towards the end of his press conference, for which he was roundly ridiculed on the Internet.

“Ahh the taste of frustration. I think that is baskin robbins secret 32nd flavor,” one person on Twitter said.

“Biden says he can ‘taste’ how frustrated you are. Ultra Empathy unlocked,” author Eric Scarry said.

“Biden just said he could taste our frustration. WTH? This guy is nuts,” another Twitter user said.

“It’s a little late for Biden to note that people are unhappy with him while denying any responsibility when he’s deeper underwater than Ted Kennedy’s car on Chappaquiddick,” Spencer Brown said.

“Don’t worry… Biden can… taste your frustration?” Gissur Simonarson said.

“Don’t worry guys, Biden can “taste” that Americans are frustrated. I’m sure that’s a major comfort for families struggling to make ends meet under,” Gates McGavick said.

“If you want to know WHY we’re frustrated, look in a mirror #CluelessJoe, you clown,” another person said.

During the press conference the president continued to blame everyone, including “Ultra MAGA Republicans” and Russian President Vladimir Putin for price increase as he took no responsibility himself.

“Reporter: do you take any responsibility, your policies?” on reporter said to him.

“I think our policies help, not hurt. Think about what they say. The vast majority of the economists think that this is going to be a real tough problem to solve, but it’s not because of spending. We brought down the deficit. The bottom line is how much does America owe? How much in the hole are we going? We’re reducing that,” he said.

And during the press conference he actually blamed Americans who blame him for inflation because they are not being focused.

“I think that, you know, it’s – they’re not focused. All they’re focused on understandably is the problem they’re facing. They get 5 1/2% raise, average raise on their salaries and yet inflation exceeds that. And look around the world and they know that a lot of it is extremely complicated. And so they’re frustrated and I don’t blame them. I really don’t blame them. There’s a lot we have to do but you know as well – I shouldn’t say you. I think what I have to do is explain in simple, straightforward language what’s going on. Like reason why 30% of the inflation last year is because automobiles cost more. Why do they cost more? They couldn’t get the computer chips to make them,” he said.

And, of course he blamed MAGA Republicans.

“Let’s do one more comparison. Let’s compare our two plans when it comes to the deficit. Republicans love to attack me as a big spender, as if that’s the reason why inflation has gone up. Let’s compare the facts. Under my predecessor, the deficit exploded, raising every single year under Republicans. Under my plan, we’re on track to cut the federal deficit by $1.5 trillion this year. Let me say it again, $1.5 trillion by the end of this fiscal year. The biggest one-year decline in all of history for America. That’s in addition to last year we cut the budget $350 billion — the deficit, not the budget. The deficit, $350 billion. My Treasury Department is planning to pay down The National debt this quarter which never happened under my predecessor. Not once. Not once. Because unlike my predecessor, the deficit has gone down both years I’ve been here. That is not an abstraction. It matters. It matters to families. Because reducing the deficit is one of the main ways we can ease inflationary pressures.

Look, the bottom line is this. Americans have a choice right now between two paths, reflecting two different sets of values. My plan attacks inflation and grows the economy by lowering costs for working families, giving workers well-deserved raises, reducing the deficit by historic levels, and making big corporations and very wealthiest Americans pay their fair share. The other path is the ultra MAGA plan put forward by congressional Republicans, to raise taxes on working families, lower the income of American workers, threaten sacred programs, Americans count on like social security, Medicare and Medicaid and give break after break to big corporations and billionaires. Just like they did the last time they were in power. When their top priority was the reckless $2 trillion tax cut going majority — going to the very wealthiest Americans which ballooned the deficit and not a penny of it was paid for.

Look, I know you got to be frustrated. I know. I can taste it. Frustrated by high prices by gridlock in Congress, by the time it takes to get anything done. Believe me, I understand the frustration. But the fact is congressional Republicans, not all of them, but the MAGA Republicans are counting on you to be as frustrated by the pace of progress which they’ve everything — they’ve done everything they can to slow down, that you’ll hand power over to them and enact — so they can enact their extreme agenda. Look at their agenda. We’ll put it up on a web page somewhere. I think I can do this, the Scott plan. It’s in writing. We need a government focused on what families actually need. That’s why I urge all Americans to think about the path I’ve laid forward. We have to do more beyond what I laid forward. But then think about the Republican in Congress who are actually proposing. Which path is right for you and for your family and quite frankly, for America? Let’s build an extraordinary process and progress we’ve made instead of tearing it down. Let’s focus on what matters, what really matters to average Americans. I want to thank you all. God bless you. And may God protect our troops.”

And the president blamed Putin.

“Let me explain why this choice is so important. Let me start with the Putin price hike, high gas prices and energy prices. My plan is already in motion. I led the world and other countries to join with us to coordinate the largest release of oil from our stockpiles of all the countries in history, 240 million barrels to boost global supply. Here at home U.S. oil and gas production is approaching record levels. In fact, we produced more oil domestically in my first year in office than my predecessor did in his first year.

To further drive down prices, my administration is allowing the sale of gasoline using home grown bio fuels, bio fuels this summer, which wasn’t allowed before. And to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and reckless autocrats like Putin, I’m working with Congress to pass landmark investments to help build a clean energy future as well. From tax credits for businesses to produce renewable energy to tax credits for families to make their homes more energy efficient.”
