MSNBC anchor considered “Stephanie Antoinette” after arguing Americans can afford more expensive races
MSNBC Stephanie Ruhle argues that Americans must put the high inflation rate and the rising costs of food and other everyday items “looming” on Sunday.
The consumer price index increased by 6.2% year on year in October, according to at the Ministry of Labor, the largest annual gain since November 1990. And prices rose 0.9% month over month.
But soaring costs, Ruhle told NBC, was expected after the global pandemic, before telling presenter Willie Geist that Americans “on average” can actually afford the higher prices.
âThe dirty little secret here, Willie, while no one likes to pay more, on average we have the money to do it,â she said. “Household savings hit an all-time high during the pandemic, we really had nowhere to go out and spend.”
Ruhle added that the United States expects “record” retail sales this year, that home values ââare rising and the stock market is at record highs, to justify his argument.
Conservative pundits predicted that, if adopted by Democrats, the type of message Ruhle adopted would derail their chances in the next round of elections. Others have called Ruhle “Stephanie Antoinette”, in reference to Marie-Antoinette, the arrogant queen of France during the French Revolution.
Inflation is considered to be one of the determining factors forcing Democratic senators like Joe Manchin, W.Va., to support President Biden’s social spending bill. The bill would have gone from a price of 3.5 trillion dollars to less than 2000 billion dollars. The president argued that the reconciliation bill will help reduce inflation.
