Twitter users roundly mocked Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Thursday after she blamed private companies for rising Thanksgiving costs.

“Wondering why your Thanksgiving groceries cost more this year?” Warren wrote in the missive on Thanksgiving eve. “It’s because greedy corporations are charging Americans extra just to keep their stock prices high.

This is outrageous.”

Inflation rose by 6.2 percent in October, according to Labor Department data, exceeding 5 percent for the fifth consecutive month and setting a 30-year record. The corresponding rise in costs related to Thanksgiving led NBC News to go as far as suggesting that Americans could save money by not buying turkeys — and by asking friends and family to help with the cost of food.

“Apparently corporations are 7.5 percent greedier than they were two years ago,” Josh Barro replied.

“This is like the text of a 419 scam email,” Paul Graham opined. “It seems patently ridiculous to you, because you’re not its target audience. It’s meant only for those dumb enough to believe it.”

Warren’s Thanksgiving commentary received more than 12,000 replies to the same effect — a number that exceeded her previous 20 tweets combined.

Oh yes, not at all caused by you and your buddies spending trillions and causing mass inflation passed to consumers. Quick everyone look at the corporate boogeyman! Pay no attention to the fact those corporate overlords give most of their $$$ to the Democratic Party. https://t.co/5Fmeb8p7ys

Inflation is the state against the people.

Even the casual observer knows that only the government can print trillions of dollars.

So it’s much harder for them to pit half the citizenry against the other half, as they usually do.

This will be a problem for them. https://t.co/59XXWZzqvI

In a world of bad takes, this one is uniquely horrid.

Just spitballing here, but maybe groceries cost more because we printed 40% of the money that has ever existed in the past 18 months? https://t.co/GF2tH39NzF
