(PatriotWise.com)- Far-left failed presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren took a beating from Twitter last Thursday, when she made the bizarre claim that private companies are responsible for rising costs and the fact that Americans just experienced the most expensive Thanksgiving holiday in history.
In a tweet, the Massachusetts senator attempted to ease pressure on the failing Biden administrations, writing:
“Wondering why your Thanksgiving groceries cost more this year? It’s because greedy corporations are charging Americans extra just to keep their stock prices high. This is outrageous.”

That’s not what’s happening.
In October this year, inflation rose by 6.2% – and that’s according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Inflation has exceeded 5% for the fifth straight month, setting a new 30-year record and forcing Americans all over the country to pay astronomically high prices for fuel, food, and general products.
It’s a damning indictment of the Biden administration, and its promise to make life better for average Americans.
Journalist Josh Barro, who writes for Business Insider – which is by no means a right-wing outlet – mocked Warren for the blatantly inaccurate claim.
“Apparently corporations are 7.5 percent greedier than they were two years ago,” she said.
Others used memes – an extremely powerful and dangerous form of misinformation if you believe CNN’s resident potato Brian Stelter.

It’s funny because it’s true.
Paul Graham compared the tweet to a “419 scam email” saying that it seems patently ridiculous to you “because you’re not its target audience.”
“It’s meant only for those dumb enough to believe it,” he added.
So, so true.
Just think how many Democrats out there will be using this false, baseless argument from Warren when they next argue with Republicans about the state of the country.
To the Democrats, truth doesn’t matter.
