LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): And like magic, we're suddenly seeing signs that the Biden White House has been taken over by the Biden campaign. Now, given how poorly Biden's doing, The Angle imagines that the woman behind the curtain, Dr. Jill, is demanding that people do a better job for her husband, which means rotating out the farm team for the bigger hitters with better messaging. Now, for many months, the president has been frustrated that he's not getting credit for the great economy. Because they can't admit their massive spending drove the high prices that caused inflation, the Biden campaign decided it would help if they used other words instead. Take out the in and add greed and shrink.


They don't realize that he's actually attacking his own economy. Now, companies shrink products, not for fun, it's not fun to do that, but they do it because if they don't, they have to raise prices. It's basic economics, kids.
