Joe Biden’s first year in office has been a disaster for the country.
The so-called mainstream media have done their best to deflect blame from him.
But one Hollywood actor cracked a joke that put Biden to shame.
Americans are feeling the crunch of the worst inflation in 40 years thanks in large part to Joe Biden’s foolhardy economic policies.
People are especially feeling the pain at the gas pump.
Actor and rapper Ice-T, born Tracy Marrow, drove that point home with a hilarious joke on Twitter.
Ice-T tweeted a story about how he was “robbed,” causing genuine concern at the start:
“I was robbed at a gas station in NJ last night. After my hands stopped trembling…I managed to call the cops and they were quick to respond and calmed me down… My money is gone…the police asked me if I knew who did it…I said yes…it was pump number 9…”

Nearly 1 million users liked Ice-T’s tweet, illustrating how many people are experiencing the wallet crunch.
Under Biden, gas prices began increasing the moment he took office, and they recently hit a record high.
Donald Trump warned that gas would hit $7 per gallon under Biden, and it barely took a year for him to be proven right.
Meanwhile, the Democrats are desperate for scapegoats other than their policies.
Biden said that it was “simply not true” that government spending led to inflation, which made economists’ heads explode.
Printing more money to fund reckless government spending is the definition of inflation; it means more dollars are chasing fewer goods, which causes prices to go up.
Democrats are shamelessly blaming “corporate greed” for the price increases, but at the same time they’re blaming oil companies for not pumping more oil.
So Americans are expected to believe that these companies are simultaneously greedy and don’t want to produce more oil.
The Wall Street Journal explained that “companies have to obtain additional permits for rights of way to access leases and build pipelines to transport fuel. This has become harder under the Biden Administration. Second, companies must build up a sufficient inventory of permits before they can contract rigs because of the regulatory difficulties of operating on federal land.”
These are just some of the issues that have led to the current American energy crisis.
Biden and the Democrats tried running the line that the gas price increases were “Putin’s price hike” because of the war in Ukraine, but even former Barack Obama advisor David Axelrod torpedoed that narrative.
Ice-T’s joke went so viral because he cut to the heart of a problem that’s hamstringing countless Americans and businesses.
