Biden’s blue suit took a direct hit as he began a 25-minute address in which he blamed the US’ 8.5% annual inflation rate on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine rather than his own actions.
“I’m here today to talk about what we’re doing to lower costs for American families and put rural America at the center of our efforts to build a future that’s made in America,” Biden said moments before he was struck. “That’s not hyperbole!”
Biden blamed price spikes on Putin’s invasion of Ukraine despite the fact that consumer costs were already creeping higher over the past year — which critics blame on Biden’s policies and ramped-up government spending.
Human beings also protested Biden’s arrival in the state that President Donald Trump
carried by more than 8 percentage points in 2020.
A flock of Trump supporters greeted Biden’s motorcade with banners that said “LGB,” an apparent abbreviation of the anti-Biden phrase “Let’s Go Brandon”.
