Sometimes the smallest things can brighten a dark day, like a puppy, or the laughter of a child, or a good laugh at someone else’s expense. We need some of these dark days brightened, don’t we? Raging inflation, high prices at the pump and the grocery, little hope of anything getting better anytime soon. Yep, things are a little dark thanks to Brandon and his band of merry men and women. And Grandma Vodka Pelosi.
At the grand Inflation Reduction Act gala on the White House lawn Tuesday, the fine folks responsible for this mess gathered to congratulate themselves for a job (not) well done. It is almost inconceivable to me that these folks REALLY believe what they are doing is good for the country and the economy, but the alternative is to believe they are all grossly incompetent or just plain evil. I’m not sure which one disturbs me the most.
During Pelosi’s speech touting Biden’s “work” on inflation, a funny thing happened; the slack jawed crowd in attendance missed their applause cue, resulting in old Nance having to ask. Check this out from Breitbart:
Pelosi was speaking at an event on the White House lawn to celebrate the passage of President Joe Biden’s “Inflation Reduction Bill” when she scolded the audience for not applauding at the appropriate moment.
“Mr. President, thank you for unifying and inspiring a vision of a stronger, fairer, safer future for all our children. Your extraordinary leadership has made this glorious day possible,” Pelosi said.
When no one applauded, she demanded they clap.
“I — That’s an applause line!” Pelosi said. The crowd applauded as directed.
NOW – Pelosi: “Mr. President … your extraordinary leadership has made this glorious day possible. I — That’s an applause line.”pic.twitter.com/srZXtf0MZC

I once attended a taping of “Family Feud”, and they instructed the entire audience on when to applaud, laugh and interact. Maybe the White House should consider asking Steve Harvey to host the next event instead of Grandma Vodka.
The only future I see is a weaker, hungrier, more impoverished future, especially for lower socio-economic people thanks to Joe Biden’s policies. I can see why no one applauded, as they likely they thought she was going to say, “just kidding”.
Unfortunately, this entire administration has been one very long, very bad pie-in-the-face to the American people. Almost like when a work friend is trying to tell you a joke and you have already heard it, and he keeps messing it up anyway. Except we can’t fake a phone call and walk away.
Pelosi praised Biden for legislation meant to lower inflation on the same day that the stock market tanked by more than a thousand points after the newest report of high inflation.
Inflation remained at historically high levels in the economic report for August. The Dow Jones responded to the news by crashing down more than 800 points, or 2.62%, while the Nasdaq plummeted by nearly 4% and the S&P 500 index fell by 3%.
Folks, these people keep telling us the sun is shining, all the while it’s nothing but gray skies. Things are not good, and things have no immediate hope of getting better. It doesn’t matter how grandiose the speech or fake the applause, Joe, Nancy, Chuck and the gang have run the country in a ditch, and it’s going to take the rest of us to push it out, and them out of Washington.
