President Joe Biden and the White House continued this week to spin sky-high inflation numbers as voters balk at the rising cost of living — often relying on misleading arguments to deflect responsibility for the price hikes.

Democrats have blamed a range of targets for causing prices to rise — from the war in Ukraine to supply chain hiccups to the low unemployment rate to corporate greed.

Here is a look at some of the White House’s claims this week:

“What people don’t know is that 70% of the increase in inflation was the consequence of Putin’s price hike because of the impact on oil prices — 70%.”
