Joe Biden’s Super Bowl Video About Shrinkflation Mirrored Elizabeth Warren’s From Last Week

If you thought Joe Biden’s Super Bowl video sounded familiar, it’s because it is. Less than a week ago, Senator Elizabeth Warren posted a video in which she made the exact same argument about shrinkflation. Biden even chose the same targets, singling out Oreos and Doritos.

Critics have panned the video for various reasons, but few have pointed out that it wasn’t even an original idea.

FOX News reported:

Biden’s Super Bowl ‘Shrinkflation’ video stuns social media: ‘Is this a joke?’

President Biden celebrated Super Bowl Sunday in what many saw as a bizarre and ironic video attacking snack companies for inflation.

Though the president skipped out on the traditional pre-game interview, the White House’s X account posted a pre-recorded video of Biden talking about “Shrinkflation.”

“While you were Super Bowl shopping, did you notice smaller-than-usual products where the price stays the same? Folks are calling it Shrinkflation and it means companies are giving you less for every dollar you spend. I’m calling on the big consumer brands to put a stop to it,” the post read.

In the video, Biden said, “It’s Super Bowl Sunday, and if you’re anything like me, you like to be surrounded by a snack or two while watching the big game. You know, when buying snacks for the game, you might have noticed one thing: sports drinks bottles are smaller, [a] bag of chips has fewer chips, but they’re still charging just as much.”

He continued, “As an ice cream lover, what makes me the most angry is that ice cream cartons have actually shrunk in size but not in price. I’ve had enough of what they call Shrinkflation. It’s a rip off. Some companies are trying to pull a fast one by shrinking the products little by little and hoping you won’t notice. Give me a break. The American public is tired of being played for suckers. I’m calling on companies to put a stop to this. Let’s make sure businesses do the right thing now.”

Now watch Warren’s video:

As I pointed out with Warren’s video, shrinkflation is not a conspiracy hatched by greedy corporations. It is a market reaction to economic conditions created by the Biden administration. He is complaining about something he has caused.

People on Twitter/X slammed Biden’s video:

Yesterday on The Five, Dana Perino made an excellent point about this. The Biden campaign turned down an offer to do an interview during the Super Bowl, which would have been free, and instead spent millions of dollars airing this video during the game.

This video is cued to start at the 4:41 mark, so just press play:
