Mike Huckabee Slams Janet Yellen Over ‘Tone-Deaf’ Price Comments

Since the election of President Joe Biden in 2020, the topic of rising inflation has been one of the main focus points in almost all political conversations. Many Americans have been speaking out about rising inflation numbers as they become more and more frustrated due to the increasing cost of living each year. Rising inflation has affected U.S. consumers from real estate markets to gas prices. It seems that Americans grow more tired of the struggling economy they are faced with. However, not everyone sees inflation as harmful, especially in the political world, as Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen was recently criticized for her controversial take on inflation during the Biden administration’s economy. 

In a recent segment of the Fox News show, The Ingraham Angle, former republican Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was interviewed where he slammed the current Secretary of the Treasury for her “tone deaf” comments on the effects of President Biden’s economy. Huckabee was featured on the show to discuss similar issues Americans are facing in today’s economy. The show’s guest host, Judge Jeanine Pirro asked Huckabee about his thoughts on a recent video of Yellen who had claimed she does not “see the sticker” when grocery shopping. 

Huckabee responded in a sarcastic manner stating he was thankful his family owned chickens, otherwise, they would not be able to afford the price of eggs. Huckabee then slammed Yellen for her comments by arguing that the Secretary of Treasury does not need to worry about prices due to the fact she has a net worth of $20 million. Huckabee went on to explain that wealthy people in America do not feel the effects of inflation, because they can afford such prices. Huckabee further stated that contrary to the wealthy, most Americans can not afford the same rising prices. Huckabee stated that he could not fathom the “tone-deaf” approach that the current administration has taken to economic issues.
