David Axelrod to Democrats: Stop blaming Putin for inflation!

Former Barack Obama political adviser David Axelrod is advising Democrats to stop blaming inflation and the price of fuel on Vladimir Putin and his invasion of Ukraine.

Americans don’t believe it, anyway, he said on the “Hacks on Tap” podcast.

“They know that we had inflation before this,” Axelrod said. “They know that prices were high before this. They haven’t dialed this in quite right yet. You can’t blame everything in the economy on Putin.”

At her weekly news conference Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the government is doing “everything we can to minimize the Putin price hike at home.”

“Since he started amassing troops earlier this year, the price at the pump has gone up 75%,” she said.

However, inflation and the price of gasoline has been on the rise the entire Biden presidency.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
