Joy Reid makes astonishing claim that Americans have NEVER heard the word ‘inflation’ until the GOP ‘taught it to them’ after it rose to 40 year high under Biden administration

  • Days ahead of the midterm, the MSNBC host said that GOP operatives and politicos had ‘taught’ US voters the term inflation ahead of the election 
  • Reid claimed that the term is not a part of the lexicon of everyday Americans, despite the figure rising to a four-decade high during the Biden presidency
  • Reid and fellow MSNC host Nicole Wallace claim that Republicans are campaigning on inflation, while offering no real solutions to combat it
  • Inflation, which hit 8.2% in September and was higher the month before that, is impacting the ability of many Americans to provide for their families

Controversial MSNBC host Joy Reid has claimed that the word ‘inflation‘ is not a standard part of the ‘normal lexicon’ of Americans, and that most people using it have learned it from political operative during this midterm cycle.

Speaking with her network colleague Nicole Wallace, Reid said the ‘only people I’ve ever heard use the word inflation are journalists and economists.’

The progressive host added that most people have ‘never used that word ever in their lives’ prior to this election cycle, in which Republicans are heavily favored for several reasons including the bleak economic forecast.

While Reid – host of ‘The ReidOut’ – argued that Republicans have ‘taught people the world inflation,’ polls ahead of Tuesday’s election have consistently shown that voters top concerns at the moment include inflation, the economy in general and crime.

Although the reality is that inflation has hit a 40-year-high in the US, placing many Americans in dire financial situations as they struggle afford rent, basic utilities and food for their families. Reid chose to dismiss the concept and, in particular, the word as an elitist economic concept that would never make it into the minds or mouths of everyday Americans without the pushing of GOP politicos.

The September inflation rate hit 8.2%, a figure that the Biden administration called ‘progress.’ October’s inflation rate will be announced on November 10.

Host Nicole Wallace said that despite Republicans emphasizing the issues of inflation and crime during this cycle, they ‘have not presented any solutions to their voters on either of those topics.’

Wallace may have missed policies being touted by Republican candidates like Lee Zeldin in New York – who has advocated to repeal bail reform efforts – or Nevada Senate candidate Adam Laxalt’s plan to combat government spending ease financial pressure on consumers.

Indeed, Wallace was perfectly happy to parrot former President Barack Obama’s campaign trail talking points as Democrats close in on what could be a bloody Tuesday evening.

Despite the serious financial predicament many Americans find themselves in due to soaring inflation numbers and a generally downturned economy, Reid’s take on the issue is that ‘it’s interesting that Republicans are doing something they don’t normally do, which is not use the common tongue, not use just common English like they sort of do on their campaigns like they do with crime.’

Despite her claim that inflation is a term used only by high-minded reporters and economists, the pundit did mention that the state where she resides, Florida, has become increasingly expensive.

‘My family moved here because it was an affordable place to buy a hose. No more. It’s now more expensive to buy in Miami than it is in New York, ‘ she said.
