Eating Chef Boyardée? Midterms summed up by top Democrat’s ‘short-sighted’ comment on inflation, critics say

The entire 2022 midterm election cycle can be summed up in controversial sentiment expressed over the weekend by a senior House Democrat who leads this caucus’ campaign arm, Dana Perino said on ‘The Five.’ , said Monday.

New York Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney — a Putnam County Democrat who is running in a redesigned district that now includes Rockland County, where his Republican opponent sits in the state assembly — has been making waves when he suggested families eat Chef Boyardee’s canned pasta during a discussion of inflation.

“I grew up in a family where if the price of gas went up the price of food went down, so this time of the week we’d be eating Chef Boyardee if that budget didn’t change – So that’s what families have to do,” he said in an interview with Westchester’s Halston Media.

On “The Five,” Perino said Maloney’s comments boil down the election to left-wing sentiment.

“I think if you could put the whole election cycle in one clip, it would have been this one about Chief Boyardee – because [Maloney] is responsible for electing other Democrats,” she said. “This election is about inflation and the economy.”

In response to Maloney, his opponent, Assemblyman Michael Lawler, R-Suffern, said he had a “better idea” than to eat Chief Boyardee: “Let’s fire Sean Maloney and cut inflation.”

Perino said Maloney’s comments are reminiscent of other high-profile Democrats who have made similar tone-deaf remarks perceived as derisory or indifferent to hurting Americans.

She quoted Biden climate czar John Kerry as suggesting once displaced energy workers get green jobs.

In 2021, Kerry defended Biden’s climate platform, saying the president wanted these laid-off workers “to have better choices…alternatives, that they can be the people to go to work making the solar panels.”

Perino also pointed to Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s comments regarding the purchase of electric vehicles.

“They want to let them work on their bikes, put on a sweater, basically, because the fuel oil is going to be so high,” Perino said, adding that Maloney and Kerry’s comments are not isolated cases, but evidence or a greatest democrat. messaging strategy.

“[This] That’s why Hilary Rosen, a longtime Democratic strategist, says, ‘wow, we’re in bad shape,’” she said.

“Five” co-host Jeanine Pirro, who once served as a district attorney in one of the counties that Maloney-Lawler’s seat includes, said he and others were “completely clueless.”

“He’s going to lose to Mike Lawler,” Pirro predicted of the DCCC chairman.

Jesse Watters later added that Maloney is supposed to be a “smart” member of the caucus and not make a “squad goof like that”, adding that Democrats further suggested that straphangers not listen to music in the subway to be able to smell potential criminal attackers.

“This is how it is: we don’t have a plan. You face inflation, you eat cheap junk,” Watters said.

Citing liberal references to a Republican takeover as a “threat to democracy,” Watters said that, by definition, the real threat would be elected Democrats not representing the will of their constituents.

“You’re supposed to go out there and represent the people. It’s a representative democracy. Imagine after 9/11, George W. Bush came out and campaigned midterm on rights reform. And the country dies to talk about terrorism,” he said.
