WH Press Secretary Jen Psaki went into full ‘Baghdad Bob’ propaganda mode today by absurdly claiming that the recent dramatic surge in meat prices is caused by the greed of the meat conglomerates rather than the reckless pending by the Democrats.

A reporter from a leftist media outlet asked her “There are several progressive groups of lawmakers who are increasingly vocalizing the idea that inflation, high inflation is being driven by corporate greed, including companies with high profits, some of whom have met at the White House with the President in recent months. Does the President endorse that idea? Does he think that corporate greed is a big driver of inflation right now?”

Psaki of course took the bait and ran with it saying “I think that — the President thinks the way people across the country, American families, digest inflation is by price increases. And if you look at industry to industry, it’s a little different. So, for example, the President, the Secretary of Agriculture have both spoken to what we’ve seen as the greed of meat conglomerates.”

“That is an area where when people go to the grocery store and they’re trying to buy a pound of meat, two pounds of meat, ten pounds of meat, is the prices are higher,” she added. “That is, in his view, and the view of our Secretary of Agriculture, because of, you could call it corporate greed, sure. You could call it jacking up prices during a pandemic.”

“There are other areas where we’ve seen increases because of supply chain issues and we’re seeing those increases around the world as it relates to gas prices, oil supply and things along those lines. So I would say, there’s some areas where we have seen corporations benefit, profit from the pandemic, and certainly the President would agree with that component. I don’t know the full context of all of their remarks.”

Jen Psaki has an easy job as White House Press Secretary in the sense that reporters lob her softball questions designed to push the leftist Biden administration narrative and they accept anything she says as gospel truth.

Of course we all know that the recent increase in meat prices has little to nothing to do with the greed of the meat conglomerates and everything to do with bad policy decisions by the Democrats and the federal reserve.
