(BLP) – Jake Paul, the infamous Youtuber turned boxer, just called out President Biden in a viral tweet. Then he blamed everyone who voted for him as “the American problem.”
1. Highest gas prices
2. Worst inflation
3. Plummeting crypto prices
4. Highest rent prices ever
5. Created new incomprehensible language
If you’re reading this and voted for Biden and you still don’t regret it then you are the American problem.

Paul’s tweet is newsworthy because his comments were broadcasted to his following of over 4.3 million. Which means he has the power to sway conversations and viewpoints thanks to his status and influence.
Moreover, what he said resonates with many Americans who fault the president for skyrocketing gas prices, horrendous inflation, and higher-than-ever median rent prices. Amongst various other topics that seemingly receive no serious consideration from the Biden administration.
Last week, the national average price for a gallon of gas topped $5. And according to a new report from Redfin, the technology-powered real estate brokerage, rent prices for apartments are up 15% from May 2021.
The top five cities with the fastest rising year-over-year rents are Austin (48%), Nashville (32%), Seattle (32%), Cincinnati (32%), and Miami (29%).
Per the report, New York and New Jersey have the highest median rents, with an average of $4,008 per month or $48,096 annually. Kansas City has the lowest median rent price with an average of $1,428 per month or $17,136 annually.
Paul’s tweet garnered nearly 100,000 likes at the time of this writing. But if you were to dive into the comments, it’s clear that many Biden supporters used the YouTuber’s stance as an opportunity to back the President.
Most notably, many comments claim that the President has no power over soaring gas prices. Some others attributed the nation’s terrible standing economically to the Ukraine and Russia conflict, with a select few citing “Putin’s price hike” – the coined phrase and excuse for high gas costs often repeated by the White House.
For those who have been following Jake Paul, these remarks should not come as a surprise. Last year, he told Overtime that he and his older brother, Logan, plan to run for president in 2032.
“I’m running for president, but I’m not even 35 yet,” Paul said. “My brother and I are running for president in 2032. That’s when we’ll be eligible.”
“We’re still figuring it out. I might be president, he might,” he continued. “I think we’re gonna flip a coin and see who gets to be the president versus vice president.”
Paul routinely voices his interests in politics and has called out Joe Biden for his failed policies and empty platitudes in the past. He is now the latest celebrity who has been unafraid to break rank with the pop-culture elites. Saying out loud what the average American family is already thinking across the country.
