Biden Repeats ‘9% Inflation’ Lie (or Forgets He Was Wrong the 1st Time)

After being widely excoriated for making the false claim last week that inflation was nine

percent when he took office, 81 year-old Pres. Joe Biden said it again - either lying or forgetting that he’d already made the false claim and been corrected. “I think inflation has gone slightly up. It was at 9% when I came in and it’s now down to about 3%,” Biden said Tuesday in an interview with Yahoo Finance. In fact, 12-month inflation was a mere 1.4% in January of 2021 when Biden entered - and Donald Trump left - the Oval Office.
