Jake Paul is taking some verbal jabs at President Joe Biden over the country’s economic woes.
On Saturday, the YouTube prankster who is now a professional boxer took to Twitter to alert his four-million-plus followers of what he considers the incumbent president’s accomplishments as well as to assess the latter’s communications skills.
“1. Highest gas prices 2. Worst inflation 3. Plummeting crypto prices 4. Highest rent prices ever 5. Created new incomprehensible language,” Paul claimed.
“If you’re reading this and voted for Biden and you still don’t regret it then you are the American problem,” he added.

“Inflation hit a 40-year-high Friday, gas prices have doubled since Biden took office, Americans are struggling to buy homes and pay rent, and some economists predicting the country will soon enter a recession,” Fox News reported.
Paul apparently disagrees with U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) who told CNN on Sunday that Biden is “doing a very good job so far,” although many Democrat officials have reportedly concluded otherwise.
Irrespective of whether anyone thinks that the social media influencer is credible, Paul’s tweet — which has received about 120,000 likes so far — predictably triggered the left.
That cohort is seemingly taking the position that Biden is a mere powerless bystander in what’s going on, especially given the so-called Putin price hike, and that inflation is a global challenge.
Common sense suggests that they would be far less understanding or malleable if President Trump was still in office under the same fiscal conditions.

While crypto is an entirely separate topic, Biden supporters/apologists on the platform seem to be overlooking the fact that under Trump, the U.S. achieved energy independence, a scenario that was promptly reversed by his successor.
That key policy change, along with the related federal spending spree under Biden and the Democrats, has caused a massive inflationary spiral that is being felt across all sectors of the economy.
Last July, Paul, 25, told the Overtime podcast that he supposedly plans to run for president in 2032 when he becomes eligible and that he and his similarly controversial brother Logan, 27, who has also gravitated to boxing as well as the WWE, would flip a coin as to who would be POTUS and VP.
Here is a selection of the Twitter response to Jake Paul’s tweet from those on both sides of the debate that he prompted:
Crypto prices, Sonny?
It really is quite a feat: you’re dumber than you look.

What’s funny is if Trump was President he would be getting blamed for all these high prices, but since it’s Biden nobody wants to blame him for anything.

Hey Jake, the rise in prices isn’t solely a USA problem. Post-pandemic demand and the war in Ukraine escalated this to a global issue.
USA’s current inflation is = 8.6%
Many other countries are feeling the pain:
Spain = 8.7%
Germany = 7.9%
United Kingdom = 9%

When trump was in office gas was always under 2 dollars also trump is the only president to not have a war happen during his time in presidency

Dems: Gas prices aren’t the president’s fault!
Also Dems: Gas prices are the president of Russia’s fault!
— JT Lewis (@thejtlewis) June 12, 2022
President doesn’t control gas prices. Blame the Russian and Ukraine war for inflation. Crypto is irrelevant. Rent has been high for years.

To think one person (even the president) has caused all those problems all by himself is ridiculous.
There are hundreds of other factors.

A lot of people saying this all this isn’t Bidens fault but if Trump was president and this was happening, the same people saying that would be blaming Trump cuz it’s a never ending cycle of blaming the other side and that’s why we don’t progress. Y’all care too much about sides!

I started following him because of this gem!
— Spencer Dillenbeck (@DarKeFSD) June 12, 2022
The President has nothing to do with gas prices. Inflation is global. Gas and oil companies are raking in record profits and then putting those dollars into stock buybacks. Price gouging is a fact. Republicans voted against the House Bill to stop it!
