Luis Carlos Vélez, an anchor for Univision, hurled much-needed criticism at Old Uncle Joe as part of a broadcast of “Linea De Fuego” (“Firing Line”) this past Tuesday night, claiming that the White House is at fault for throwing the blame at everyone else instead of accepting their fault for the record-shattering levels of inflation currently dragging down Americans throughout their everyday lives.
Vélez also criticized Biden for using his address on Tuesday about inflation to try and make political attacks on his Republican opponents without giving any sort of possible solutions.

“And the last word, President Biden. Please. Stop the blame game and face the inflation problem in this country. People just can’t take it anymore! Your words today just flabbergasted us all, OK?” started Vélez.
“They weren’t just a washing of the hands in the face of a very difficult price situation, but were also a shameless opportunity to attack Republicans,” he went on. “Solving this, Mr. President, does not correspond to your opponents. It does not correspond to the Federal Reserve, it does not correspond to business. It corresponds to you.”
“You got yourself elected,” argued the anchor. “You should lead, in order to provide solutions and persuade along with those whom you must govern.”
Vélez continued on to highlight that inflation peaked at a 40-year-high, adding, “It’s time to blame the moon, the stars, the sun. Clearly,” stated the news anchor very sarcastically. “The worst part of COVID was two years ago, and we were already recovering economically when you arrived. It was the administration’s fault for handing out stimulus packages when people no longer needed them. And it is your fault that to this day we have not set in motion a plant solve the supply chain problem.”
“How much longer, Mr. President?” posited Vélez. “People don’t eat off of politics. People eat off of wages, jobs, and opportunities. The responsibility to do something falls solely upon you, Mr. President.”
Dana Perino, another anchor buy from Fox News, issued a quite similar take on the remarks from Biden that came about Tuesday, stating that he had made a huge deal about promising solutions for taking control of these record-shattering levels of inflation and the still spiking gas prices– which climbed to a new record high in the few hours leading up to his speech– and then failed to offer any sort of new information to the American public.
“You have lost the confidence of the people that are turning to you hoping that you provide them some relief. They know it’s not coming,” she stated.
