Reporter Presses Jean-Pierre On Biden Taking Vacations As Americans Struggle With Inflation

A reporter pressed White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre Thursday on the president taking vacations while ordinary Americans struggle with inflation.

The reporter cited a Gallup poll finding that 24% of Americans have changed their spending habits and 17% travel less or have canceled their vacations due to inflation. The poll surveyed 1,570 adults between Aug. 1-22 with a 3% margin of error.

The poll prompted the reporter to ask if President Joe Biden is considering any spending cuts for the administration or himself. “17% of Americans have, according to this Gallup poll, canceled vacations or traveled less,” the reporter said. “The president’s been to his beach house six times this year. He’s been to North and South Carolina on vacation. Has the president himself considered personally reducing his spending because of inflation or have the administration reduced spending?”

I haven’t differentiated his trips to Delaware between his regular house and beach house, but, he’s been to Delaware 21 times, including this weekend, and 7 to Camp David, this year alone. Eight times elsewhere.

Jean-Pierre argued the president’s vacation in South Carolina is “not unusual” since he has a right to spend time with his family.

“The times that the president has gone to Delaware, not including and we were very clear when he went to South Carolina in August and Rehoboth he was going to go spend time with his family which every president does. That is not unusual, that is not uncommon to do and the president has a right to spend time with his family just like every other American across the country,” the press secretary said. “So that was that piece of what occurred in August.”

In other words, a bullshit answer. I love going to the mountains and Outer Banks, but, right now the hotel costs are double what they usually are (the Wilmington area is always freaking expensive). How many others are holding off right now because of Bidenflation? Does everyone else take a fossil fueled trip away from home almost every single weekend? Is his family there every weekend, or just him and Jill? It is actually uncommon for a president to be away from the White House almost every weekend. Especially when there are things going on like big inflation causing lots of problems for middle and working class Americans.
