Edward Snowden quipped Wednesday that “we’re all going to be billionaires,” while commenting on record inflation numbers made public the same day.

The former intelligence consultant said in a tweet that while people would turn billionaires a gallon of milk would cost $2.6 trillion as a result of steep price increases.

In a separate tweet, Snowden shared a Wall Street Journal headline that read “U.S. Inflation Hits Four-Decade High of 9.1%” and said he was trying to imagine the mindset of a kid graduating high school this year and realizing “they’re about to step into the world with the difficulty slider locked on Nightmare Mode.”

Consumer Price Index grew 9.1% on a year-over-year basis in June compared with an estimate of 8.8% and May’s 8.6% number. This is the highest level of CPI in more than 40 years.
