NBC Reporter Slammed for Saying ‘Americans Can Afford Inflation’

'While nobody likes to spend more, on average, we have the money to do so. Household savings hit a record high over the pandemic...'

It’s no secret that inflation has been rising, but NBC reporter Stephanie Ruhle has shared the “dirty little secret” that Americans can afford rising prices without issue.

On NBC’s Sunday Today show, Ruhle was asked how much farther she was anticipating inflation to rise and when Americans may expect prices to go back down.

Instead of answering this question, Ruhle went on to ask people to “put [inflation] in perspective” and continued to say how Americans can afford to pay higher prices:

“While nobody likes to spend more, on average, we have the money to do so. Household savings hit a record high over the pandemic,” Ruhle said.

“We’re expecting retail sales this holiday season to break records. For those who own their homes, the value of our homes are up,” she added. “And, while the stock market isn’t the economy, you’ve got over half of American households with some investment in the market and the markets have hit record highs.”

Ruhle went on to state that the wide availability of the COVID vaccine has increased demand, therefore pushing up pricing.

While mainstream media gaslighting is nothing new—and often took the form of specious attack-dog journalism during the administration of former President Donald Trump, as with the Russia hoax that many now admit was an “egregious” error—the obsequious attempts to lay cover for the failures of the Biden administration are equally embarassing.

A shining example of these was manifested in the conservative phrase “Let’s go Brandon” after a reporter covering a NASCAR event appeared to mishear the crowd chanting “F*** Joe Biden.”

The latter phrase became so popular as a stand-in that it is now getting censored in its own right.

Many took to Twitter as well in response t o Ruhle’s overly rosy propaganda.
