VIDEO: KJP Accidentally Links Rising Gas Prices, Inflation to Biden’s ‘American Rescue Plan’

During a press briefing on Monday, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre appeared to accidentally link the nation’s worsening gas price and inflation crisis to the signing of Joe Biden’s “American Rescue Plan” in April 2021 after being asked about it by a reporter.

“18 months ago when the president took office, inflation and gas prices starting rising…” a reporter began to ask the Press Secretary.

“Well, 18 months ago, uh, the president signed the American Rescue, Rescue Plan,” Jean-Pierre stuttered, “more than, about, back in April of 2021.”

Biden’s American Rescue Plan, a massive $1.9 trillion stimulus bill passed by Democrats in spring of 2021, provided Americans with $1,400 checks, expansions for unemployment insurance, child tax credit benefits, and hundreds of billions of dollars in aid to state and local governments.

The controversial spending bill, hailed by the White House as one of Biden’s greatest achievements, has been linked to inflation by several economic experts who say that the trillion dollar size of the legislation was too much money.

“The original sin was the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, passed in March,” wrote Former Obama economist Steve Ratter in November 2021.

“The bill – almost completely unfunded – sought to counter the effects of the Covid pandemic by focusing on the demand-side stimulus rather than on investment. That has contributed materially to today’s inflation levels,” Ratter said.

Jean-Pierre also used her time at the podium to accuse 45th President Donald Trump of harboring anti-Semitic views after remarks he made about his pro-Israel policies.

“Donald Trump’s comments were anti-Semitic, as you all know, and insulting, both to Jews and our Israeli allies,” she declared of Trump’s remarks.

“For years now, Donald Trump has aligned with extremists and anti-Semitic figures,” Jean-Pierre continued, without evidence. “It should be called out, to your point Darlene, just like we called out our Democratic friends and colleagues last week, and we will condemn and call this out as well.”

    The American Rescue Plan has led us to the edge of a cliff and throwing money around like it grows on trees is going to be our ruin. Biden hasn’t’ accomplished anything and is like an overweighted anchor trying to sink the ship.

    Obama wasn’t Black enough to have a Black Spokesperson. Bruther Biden is rather articulate for a….

    What part of that rescue plan saves us from more muddled thinking emanating from this inept bunch of knot heads? Thrashing around in quicksand will soon make these geniuses disappear. America will survive and prosper again in spite of them. You lose!!!

    What I find amazing is that in the last video, she called Trump “anti-Semitic”, when it was he who moved the Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, following a promise to do just that. Other presidents had said they would do that, but never did, but Donald Trump is “anti-Semitic”? I don’t think that is the case at all. It’s Democrat projection at work again. Look at all those who post blatant anti-Jewish posts: Almost every one is from a liberal. Liberals are the racists, anti-Jewish, anti-white, and anti-MORAL people.

    The so-called “American Rescue Plan” is more akin to an “American Hostage Plan”.
