NBC suggested to American families that they cut out the traditional Thanksgiving turkey from their meals this year in order to cope with Joe Biden’s record-high inflation.
On NBC’s “Today” show, correspondent Vicky Nguyen recommended that, because of ever-increasing food prices, families cut out turkey from their dinner tables this Thanksgiving.
“Perhaps forgo the turkey,” Nguyen outlandishly suggested. “I know that is the staple of the Thanksgiving meal. However, some people think turkey is overrated. It tends to be the most expensive thing on the table. Maybe you do an Italian feast instead.”
Despite Thanksgiving being about gathering with loved ones and giving thanks, Nguyen noted that forgoing the turkey could cause loved ones to not come, which would also be a way to cut costs.
“If you tell everyone you’re having a Thanksgiving without turkey, some guests may drop off the list, and that’s a way to cut costs too,” Nguyen added.
As if suggesting Americans ditch the turkey to save money, the network’s liberal cable arm, MSNBC, entertained a guest that said the Thanksgiving holiday is racist and celebrates “genocide and violence.”
This Thanksgiving will the most expensive on record due to Joe Biden’s inflation crisis. Nearly every ingredient will be more expensive this year, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual Thanksgiving dinner cost survey.
Under Joe Biden in 2021, the average cost of this year’s Thanksgiving’s feast for 10 guests is $53.31, a 14 percent increase in price from last year’s feast.
Whereas, under Donald Trump in 2020, a Thanksgiving feast for 10 guests was $46.90, the cheapest price in over a decade. The price of turkeys have also increased by 24 percent from last year.
Despite the economy suffering from massive inflation and supply chain shortages, Joe Biden has continually championed for increased spending and the multi-trillion dollar “Build Back Better” infrastructure bills, saying that increased spending will “ease inflationary pressures and lower costs for American families.”
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that fuel oil prices rose 12.3 percent in October. Food prices are up by 5.3 percent for the year, and energy prices were 30 percent more in October 2021 than October 2020.
