Could you imagine if any Republican, conservative, or anyone that doesn’t worship the god of liberalism made a claim – or even hinted at one – that the current skyrocketing rate of inflation was merely a “high class problem” and therefore should not be criticized?
Well that’s exactly how White House chief of staff Ron Klain feels about his boss’ economy and the rising prices of common goods that affect most Americans, not just the “high class.”

White House Eva Braun – or as some know her, Jen Psaki – dismissed concerns over Klain’s assessment, chalking it up to good ‘ole “public speech.”
Wait, did Psaki admit that twitter is public forum should therefore be unregulated to allow Americans to exercise their right to free speech?
No, of course not. Liberals only use the ‘free speech’ argument when one of their own finds themselves in hot water.
The White House mouthpiece went on to say the Twitter habits of Joe Biden’s closest adviser are “not a top priority” for the president. She said Klain is speaking “on his own accord,” with staffers free to “tout points they find interesting.”

The outcry after Klain’s retweet was swift, with many debunking the claim that inflation was in fact a “high class problem.”
Many Americans posted pictures in response to give Klain – who lives in a liberal bubble in Washington D.C. – an idea of what every day people are going though under Biden’s failed economy.

The original tweet by economist Jason Furman called the economic strain “high class problems.” Furman, who chaired former President Barack Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, said the problem was tempered by low unemployment.
“Most of the economic problems we’re facing (inflation, supply chains, etc.) are high class problems,” Furman said. “We wouldn’t have had them if the unemployment rate was still 10 percent. We would instead have had a much worse problem.”
This is the message Biden’s chief adviser endorsed…
It’s not the first time Klain has drawn attention for his Twitter activity.
Biden’s chief of staff often uses his Twitter account to promote the administration’s policy agenda and to boost articles that explain or defend his boss Joe Biden.
Frequent retweets of writers who praised Biden as “wise” and “reminiscent of FDR” and tweets praising Klain’s own tenure as “masterful” after just a few weeks in office have also prompted scrutiny.
Klain is a blowhard, plain and simple.
