(JustPatriots.com)- In what can only be described as the worst-timed celebration in the history of American politics, the Biden administration arranged a White House event last Tuesday so Democrats could take a victory lap over passing the laughingly-named “Inflation Reduction Act” on the very day the grim August inflation numbers were released.
At one point, as CNN was broadcasting Biden’s shouty, incoherent remarks, the stock market ticker on the screen showed the Down plunging over 1,200 points on the news that core inflation rose from 5.9 percent in July to a staggering 6.3 percent in August while overall inflation barely slowed to 8.3 percent.
CNN: "There is this unfortunate split screen right now with the Dow taking a total beating…it feels like it's hard to be celebratory for some people." pic.twitter.com/KOGbacKFhT

Meanwhile, during his remarks, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer took great pleasure in prompting jeers from the audience of Democrats when he attacked the “extreme” agenda of the “MAGA Republicans.”
Schumer dishonestly claimed that while the Democrats were there celebrating all the wonderous accomplishments they’ve had, the “MAGA Republicans” were introducing a national “abortion ban.”
This prompted the Democrat audience to boo and jeer as a delighted Schumer egged them on.
