For the second year in a row, President Biden refused to be interviewed before the Super Bowl. Critics have accused the Democrat of trying to avoid scrutiny, as concerns over his cognitive health explode.
But that doesn’t mean the White House didn’t have plans to feature Joe during the big game. In fact, they posted a pre-recorded video of Biden to social media.
The post went out of its way to criticize food companies. Biden accused them of putting less food in their products. He gave it a name that is loaded with irony. And Americans were quick to ridicule him.
From Fox News:
Though the president skipped out on the traditional pre-game interview, the White House’s X account posted a pre-recorded video of Biden talking about “Shrinkflation.”…
The video and its focus on inflation struck many social media users as ridiculous and ironic considering the Biden administration’s track record.
“Imagine how little respect you must have for voters to try this,” National Review senior writer Charles C.W. Cooke remarked.
While you were Super Bowl shopping, did you notice smaller-than-usual products where the price stays the same?
Folks are calling it Shrinkflation and it means companies are giving you less for every dollar you spend.
I’m calling on the big consumer brands to put a stop to it. pic.twitter.com/wL1NsEh78F

In an odd turn of events, the White House released a video of Joe Biden accusing companies of “Shrinkflation.” The president claimed food companies are making their products smaller, while charging us the same prices.
Biden claims he is calling on companies to stop this—but did not explain how he’d do that.
Users were quick to criticize Biden over this unusual attack on companies. Many pointed out that some companies have been forced to make their products smaller, because of exploding costs.
Since Biden became president, he’s made decisions that have lowered the value of the dollar. His massive government spending contributed to inflation. And his decision to hamper American oil production dramatically increased energy costs—affecting every industry, including food companies.
The media has declined calling it a “recession.” But over the last three years, costs have exploded for everything. That is certainly true of food. If companies are making their products smaller, Joe Biden is largely to blame.
Yet, instead of owning up to that, Biden is attacking those companies—the same way he attacked gas stations for high prices.
- Biden posted an odd video during the Super Bowl, blaming food companies for “Shrinkflation.”
- The president accused companies of charging the same price for smaller products.
- Users reminded Biden that his policies contributed to massive inflation, which has affected every industry.
