PIERS MORGAN: How dare White House blame  Americans for wanting goods

PIERS MORGAN: How dare the Biden White House and its media cheerleaders blame the American people for expecting goods and food in their stores. If Trump was still in charge they’d be screaming from the rooftops

Imagine if President Trump had won the 2020 election, as delusional Don continues to preposterously claim he did to anyone dumb enough to believe it?

Then imagine what the media reaction would be to America, the world’s supposedly most powerful nation, currently grinding to a shuddering halt with a vast flotilla of cargo ships stuck off the Californian coast, and a chronic shortage of food-delivery drivers causing empty shelves to appear right across the country?

Actually – none of us need imagine what the reaction would be.

Trump would rightly be excoriated for failing on perhaps the single most important duty of a US President – ensuring the American people can get food and essential provisions.

I’d be leading the attack myself, because you don’t need to have Nostradamus level foresight to have predicted that as the world finally begins to crawl out of the coronavirus pandemic, the economy would inevitably surge back from the financial abyss and so would demand for supplies.

But instead, the liberal-dominated mainstream media once again refuses to treat President Biden in the same brutally critical way it treated President Trump.

In fact, instead of berating the current occupant of the White House for this calamitous state of affairs, journalists are going out of their way to give Biden a pass and do what he also loves to do – blame someone else.

In an astonishingly tone-deaf op-ed piece in the Washington Post, owned by liberal tech mogul Jeff Bezos, columnist Micheline Maynard says her fellow Americans should basically STFU with their whining about food running out. ‘Don’t rant about short-staffed stores and supply chain woes,’ screams the headline on a piece that lambasts those on the receiving end of this fiasco for having the audacity to complain about it.

In fact, instead of berating the current occupant of the White House for this calamitous state of affairs, journalists are going out of their way to give Biden a pass and do what he also loves to do – blame someone else.

Even worse, that someone else is the American people!

In an astonishingly tone-deaf op-ed piece in the Washington Post, owned by liberal tech mogul Jeff Bezos, columnist Micheline Maynard says her fellow Americans should basically STFU with their whining about food running out.

‘Don’t rant about short-staffed stores and supply chain woes,’ screams the headline on a piece that lambasts those on the receiving end of this fiasco for having the audacity to complain about it.

Apparently, Americans who’ve already endured so much health and economic hardship during this horrible pandemic, need to stop being so needy about needing stuff to keep them alive.

Maynard argues that ‘spoilt’ and ‘nightmare’ Americans have grown greedy with expectations of speedy service and easy access to consumer products – expectations that have now been ‘crushed like a Styrofoam container in a trash compactor.’

And she opines that it’s time for ‘new, more realistic expectations.’

To illustrate the enormous selfless sacrifices she herself has been forced to make, Ms Maynard writes: ‘The other day I found myself carrying home a loaf of bread in my bare hands because the bakery had run out of bags. Back when we didn’t know how good we had it — circa 2019 — I might have been annoyed by the inconvenience. Now I was just glad the bakery was still in business.’

OMG! The inconvenience!

I’m only surprised she didn’t leave a paragraph space empty for reader applause.

I mean, she carried a whole loaf in her bare hands!

During yesterday’s briefing, Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki was grilled about why the president hadn’t done more to tackle the situation, and indeed only set up a task force to deal with it last week when it became clear that the holiday season would suffer severe shortages

Meanwhile, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who went AWOL on paternity leave for two months at an absolutely crucial time for the industries he supposedly oversees, also blames the American public for being too demanding, whilst simultaneously sucking up to his boss. He told CNN: ‘Demand is up because income is up, because the president has successfully guided this economy out of the terrifying recession.’ Oh pur-lease, pass the vomit bag

Of course, this is about as tough as the crisis will get for privileged people like Maynard who describes herself as a ‘journalist, broadcaster, author, public speaker, and professor’ that specialises in food and cars.

Nor will it overly bother her newspaper’s owner, one of the world’s richest men.

But for many other Americans lower (literally) down the food chain, it presents a very real problem that will have a seriously adverse effect on their lives.

And the buck stops squarely with President Biden.

As I warned months ago, his reckless desire to behave like some kind of all-year-round Santa Claus with his massive Covid-19 stimulus spending spree would eventually have to be paid for…by the public.

And so, it is.

As inflation soars, costs have risen in almost every aspect of an average American’s life. Gas prices alone have rocketed to a 7-year high.

But wages have remained stagnant and in an extraordinarily worrying development, millions of Americans are simply quitting their jobs.

In August, three per cent (4.3 million people) of America’s entire workforce resigned.

Job availability is now running at over 10 million vacancies, but employers are struggling to hire because they’re being priced out of the market by a President who’s made it more economically beneficial for people to stay at home.

To rub salt into the wounds, the White House seems think the supply chain crisis is a trivial matter deserving of stupidly arrogant and insensitive jokes.

During yesterday’s briefing, Biden’s press secretary Jen Psaki was grilled about why the president hadn’t done more to tackle the situation, and indeed only set up a task force to deal with it last week when it became clear that the holiday season would suffer severe shortages.

‘It was crystal clear that things were not improving on the supply chain,’ said a reporter, ‘people couldn’t get dishwashers and furniture and treadmills delivered on time. Not to mention all sorts of other things….

At which point Psaki interrupted the reporter to mockingly sneer: ‘The tragedy of the treadmill.’

She might find it funny that people haven’t received their goods on time, but I doubt Americans share her amusement, especially when treadmills will help keep people fit at a time when we know good physical condition offers far greater protection against a killer virus that preys on the obese.

Psaki wasn’t the only member of Biden’s top team who seems to think this is all one big joke. Liz Reynolds, special assistant to the president for manufacturing and economic development, gave this breathtakingly blazé response during a call on Monday with the National Governors Association. ‘You won’t be able to get the jacket in 15 colors, but you will be able to get the jacket!’ she chortled.

Oh pur-lease, pass the vomit bag.

Again, I ask: what would be the reaction if Trump and his people were behaving like this?

People like Buttigieg, Reynolds and Micheline Maynard would be furiously calling him out over this disastrous mess that will ruin so much of the holiday season for so many Americans.

Instead, they blame the victims of President Biden’s chaotic fiscal policy rather than the person whose job it is make their lives less uncomfortable.

And in doing so, they expose a pathetic hypocrisy at the heart of so much of the liberal response to Biden’s presidency.

The opinion polls don’t lie: he’s getting more and more unpopular because many Americans can see and feel the quality of their lives deteriorating.

Yet apparently, THEY are to blame for this and they should stop their moaning, lower their expectations and just accept crappy standards and deplorably slow service.

How does that constitute ‘Build Back Better’?

Americans should never lower their expectations nor meekly accept mediocre performance from their leaders.

Ironically, it’s Joe Biden with his shockingly mediocre performance as president who is rapidly lowering all optimistic expectations from when he took office.
