Matt Walsh Mocks Biden’s Tone-Deaf Super Bowl Video Complaining of Inflation

The Daily Wire host Matt Walsh took apart President Joe Biden’s self-defeating Super Bowl video about “shrinkflation.” 

On the Feb. 12 edition of The Matt Walsh Show, Walsh pointed out the absurdity of Biden’s Super Bowl video which highlighted snack food “shrinkflation,” or the practice of shrinking the amount of food in a package to avoid raising prices.

Walsh mocked the president for inviting the public to look under the rug and see “yet another marker of a poor economy,” an example of inflation they may have overlooked. The president also shirked any responsibility for causing the problem.

Walsh noted that “shrinkflation” is important as it relates to inflation but the video primarily demonstrates Biden’s utter lack of self-awareness. “So the real problem is that Biden is complaining about another marker of a poor economy while taking no responsibility for it himself," Walsh said. "He’s blaming the companies that produce the snacks for the inflation that his own policies are causing and he’s hoping we don’t notice.”

On Feb. 11, Biden posted a video on X, decrying the practice of “shrinkflation” for snack food. In the video, he noted that "sports drinks bottles are smaller, a bag of chips has fewer chips, but they're still charging just as much." He added, "As an ice cream lover what makes me the most angry is that ice cream cartons have actually shrunk in size but not in price." Biden proceeded to pass the buck, imploring big business to solve his problem, "I am calling on companies to put a stop to this now," the president said.

But Americans don’t have to count the number of chips in a bag to know they’ve suffered under Bidenomics.  

Biden has an abysmal record on economics and even his media defenders complain about Americans’ low opinion of the president’s economic policy. The Biden administration oversaw an average of 5.9% inflation from February 2021 through October 2023, a drastically higher average than Americans experienced under former President Donald Trump. Despite friendly media coverage, Americans know that inflation is a serious problem under Biden. 

Still, Biden gave Americans a timely Super Bowl-themed reminder that Bidenflation is real while simultaneously blaming companies and accepting none of the blame himself. 

In the words of Biden in his own tone-deaf Super Bowl video, “Give me a break, the American public is tired of being played for suckers.”
