‘People Wonder What Planet He Is On’: Steve Forbes Torches Biden’s Finger-Pointing On Bad US Economy

Former presidential candidate Steve Forbes slammed President Joe Biden’s finger-pointing about the state of the American economy Friday, saying Biden was not on “planet Earth.”

“People wonder what planet he’s on,” Forbes said on “The Story” on Fox News Channel. “It’s not planet Earth right now and he needs to be brought down to earth and sadly it’s going to take an election to do it.”

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the Consumer Price Index went up by 8.6% in the month of May, the highest in 40 years. Gas prices surged to over $5 a gallon according to GasBuddy.

“Today’s inflation report is a reminder that Americans’ budgets are being stretched by price increases and families are starting to feel the impacts of Putin’s price hike,” Biden said in March. The term has since been repeated in the media.

“Let’s be absolutely clear about why prices are high right now: COVID and Vladimir Putin,” Biden said in an April tweet.


Experts have argued that the Biden administration’s hostility to fossil fuel production is responsible for the increase in energy prices across the board. The Biden administration canceled the sale of oil and gas leases in May and revoked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline in January 2021.

“The president can complain and point the finger at Vladimir Putin or Covid or what he calls greedy companies, but poll after poll shows the American people overwhelmingly point the finger at this president and his administration,” Forbes said.

“You have an administration where you have nonmonetary factors causing inflation and making them worse,” Forbes said. “You have a Federal Reserve that is over $2 trillion overhanging the economy of excess money that they created last year. And so they’re like doctors 300 years ago. How did they treat patients? They bled them. They thought that cured the patient. Well, it got rid of the pain and suffering because it got rid of the patient.”

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Daily Caller News Foundation.

  1. Look, it is no longer humerous to run story after story about Biden’s bad leadership and poor judment. He is a loser, by acclimation!!!

    What is needed from the field of journalism is some clever stories on how (1) he should be charged with derilection of duty and impeached, (2) how he should be charged with endangering our nation by allowing dangerous drugs and violent people too enter our nation with the intention of doing us harm and (3) how he should be charged with using the Dept. of Homeland Security to provide assistance to the Democratic Party by providing free passage to America for millions of migrants, who are being guided into the U.S. so they can vote Democratic in the next elections. The man is breaking laws and needs to be held accountable. All he cares about are non-binary people, non-white people, abortion facilitators and wokeness. He is a corrupt self serving charleton.

  2. the only way to get rid of Biden before the election is to FIX the election. the next one will be stolen too. the press is not interested in good journalism. that’s a pipe dream. they suppressed everything about Joe- especially the laptop. there’s enough on there to put him in jai. Garland is a lap dog. he arrested Navarro illegally. WE LOST THE WAR ON DRUGS. NOTHING WILL STOP drugs “from entering our country”. the DEMAND IS TOO HIGH- THE SUPPLY WILL ALWAYS BE THERE. the border should be closed until EVERY ILLGAL ALIEN IS OUT OF THIS nation. our justice system is corrupt. our Supreme Court is corrupt. allowing non dated votes in PA to be counted PROVES IT
