Once again the White House shot themselves on the foot on the inflation issue. This time, they tried to take credit for the recent fall in the rate of inflation (which is still positive), while completely ignoring that they caused the problem in the first place.  

“Great news: Today’s inflation report shows annual inflation is now at the lowest level since March 2021, and less than half of what it was last June,” the White House tweeted after May’s inflation numbers came in. Accompanying the post was a chart showing the pace of inflation declining in recent months - but also showing that it didn’t initially skyrocket until after Biden took office. 

View their tweet below (with an added annotation on when Biden took office): 

The White House is desperate for any wins on the inflation issue - and this is hardly the only time they've embarrassed themselves trying to claim one. Back in 2021, the White House was ridiculed for a tweet where they celebrated the price of July 4th barbecues being 16-cents cheaper than they were the year prior.

The next year, the cost fo the average July 4th barbeque had increased by $10.
