White House Wallops America With $18 Big Macs and $8 Egg McMuffins

For someone intent on “winning” the presidential election in 2024, perhaps Emperor Xiden should consider making eating affordable again.

Indeed, ever-escalating inflation, especially with regards to petrol and food prices, has long been a hallmark of the Biden regime.

Then again, since globalists apparently want every single individual to ride bicycles and eat bugs while they dine on caviar in private jets, it’s not terribly shocking that their chief puppet, Biden, an effective third-term Obama, has gutted the quality of life for the vast majority of the nation.

Including the quality of life for Republicans and Democrats.

Which is no doubt why the media attempts to endlessly distract from the economic carnage of the Biden regime in favor of witch hunts against Trump.

Witch hunts that have yet to turn up a single crime, mind you.

Now, the President of McDonald’s, Joe Erlinger, has penned a letter in apparent defense of rising food prices, claiming that the prices at the fast food giant have increased by “only” 21 percent.

As wages have increased nowhere near “only” 40 percent, it is safe to say that the Erlinger’s assertions hardly had the intended effect on the audience in his ill-advised letter.

Hilariously titled “Providing meaningful value to our fans, with a side of acts,” Erlinger proceeds to reveal his absence of sensitivity towards the reality of Americans.

“Americans across the country are making tough calls about where to spend their hard-earned money,” Erlinger announced.

You don’t say.

“And while we’ve been working hard to make sure our fans have great reasons to visit us, it’s clear that we – together with our franchisees – must remain laser-focused on value and affordability,” Erlinger added.

Which makes California’s hysterical $20 per hour age for fast food workers even more absurd.

Frankly, making $80 an hour would be barely getting by in that socialist state … unless one is an illegal of course. Then one doesn’t have to make any (legally earned) money at all!

“Recently, we have seen viral social posts and poorly sourced reports that McDonald’s has raised prices significantly beyond inflationary rates. This is inaccurate … The average price of a Big Mac in the U.S. was $4.39 in 2019. Despite a global pandemic and historic rises in supply chain costs, wages and other inflationary pressures in the years that followed, the average cost is now $5.29. That’s an increase of 21%,” Erlinger continued.

Oh, gee, is that all? Glad to know that the price of a Big Mac, on average, has increased by “only” 21 percent.

Is Erlinger for real?

What’s even less “for real” is the fact that dozens upon dozens of media outlets reported that Erlinger originally said 40 percent, rather than 21 percent.

Indeed, while the price of a Big Mac may have “only” increased by 21 percent, the price for Chicken McNuggets and a medium-sized French fries have reportedly increased by 28 percent and 44 percent, respectively.

And, for that matter, even Erlinger’s claims regarding the Big Mac have been called into question, particularly with widely circulating reports of $18 Big Mac combo meals.

The same inflation has extended to breakfast, with customers in Connecticut reporting $7.29 for an Egg McMuffin and $5.69 for a side of hash browns.

Of course, the highest prices are in so-called “Blue” states. Which freely feed illegal criminals while housing them in luxury hotels for months on end.

And the media wonders why Trump draws crowds of tens of thousands in longstanding Democrat enclaves, like New Jersey and New York City.

Little wonder that upwards of 80 percent of Americans have acknowledged fast food to be a “luxury” under the Biden administration, it seems that Erlinger’s letter has done little to mollify concerns.

On the contrary, the refusal to recognize the insanity of 40 percent inflation on health-destroying fast food is sure to achieve little in terms of quelling Americans’ rising anxieties over the broader macroeconomy.

Not to mention basic global security.
