Faced with Soaring Omicron and Rising Prices Biden Attacks Meat Industry

Faced with soaring Omicron cases and rising prices, President Biden attacked the meat industry.

During comments to the media about his plan to combat high meat prices, Biden said it was the meat industry “middlemen” and a lack of competition that is responsible for the rise in meat prices and not inflation.

Biden’s interest in meat prices was not from first-hand experience but rather from a family friend.

The president mentioned a comment about hamburger prices from a friend who said, “Do you realize it’s over $5 for a pound of hamburger meat? $5?”

The White House is aggressively going after the meat industry.

First, the White House posted Biden’s meeting about meat on Twitter.

Second, Biden’s comment about prices was amplified by White House Press Secretary Jenn Psaki.

The meat industry was not pleased with Biden’s assessment and they attacked his approach including being left out of the meeting.

The Daily Mail reports:

The Biden Administration continues to ignore the number one challenge to meat and poultry production: labor shortages. This tired approach is not surprising because they have refused to engage with the packing and processing sector they attack, going so far as to hold a roundtable on meat packing without a single beef or pork packer present.’

Bided was also criticized for ignoring questions from the media.

Inflation is hurting Biden and it’s a key reason for his low approval ratings.

As a result, instead of attacking inflation, Biden decides to attack the meat industry.

Finally, the president is not helping himself by ignoring the media.

Dodging questions makes Biden look weak and disconnected.
