The Democrats might be the cringiest people on the planet and that was on full display yesterday. Nancy Pelosi Royally embarrassed herself and Biden in an awkward speech, wait until you see this.
Brace yourself for this epic fail.
The Western Journal Reports. As part of a celebration Tuesday of the Inflation Reduction Act, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attempted to praise President Joe Biden. Audience members were not prepared to do so. Pelosi paused briefly as if she was expecting an audience to applaud. Take a look at this.

People online quickly pointed out that the moment resembled a similar one from years earlier during the 2016 election cycle. At a campaign event, then-candidate Jeb Bush asked the audience “please clap,” and the moment became a well-known joke.
Perhaps Biden’s work on the Inflation Reduction Act was not lauded by the audience because inflation is still high.
Prices rose just 0.1 percent from July to August due mainly to lower gas prices. Despite the volatile nature of food and energy, the core price index surged 0.6 percent from July to August.
American consumers felt a double increase in core prices from June to July, when prices rose 0.3 percent.
Furthermore, many Americans doubt that the Inflation Reduction Act that Biden has championed will actually reduce inflation.
It is almost certain that this law will not reduce inflation in the long run. According to preliminary analysis by the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, inflation is likely to increase through 2024.
Rather than admitting these facts, the Democrats celebrated in Washington the useless new law, while Americans suffer from high prices. No wonder the audience didn’t clap. Let’s try again, Democrats.
