Biden’s Latest Attempt to Shift Blame for His High Gas Prices Is So Bad Even Jeff Bezos Called It Misdirection (or Stupidity)
Bezos: “It’s either straight ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics.”
Joe “I am the Democratic Party” Biden is stuck on the blame game when it comes to the rampant inflation and ever-rising gas prices his policies have created. First, it was that there was no inflation, then it was “transitory,” then it was Putin’s fault, Trump’s fault, maybe even Corn Pop’s fault.
When no one bought any of that nonsense, Biden decided to blame the oil industry (who knows how that works given that his administration has worked overtime to cripple and ensure they can’t provide for America’s energy needs), and now he’s turned on Mom and Pop gas station owners in an outrageous demand that even Jeff Bezos found objectionable.
Biden: "To the companies running gas stations and setting those prices at the pump, this is a time of war, global peril, Ukraine. These are not normal times. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump. Do it now." pic.twitter.com/DF9TEduoM5

The weird whispering is bizarre, of course, and the tone-deaf and deeply ignorant message sparked fierce backlash.
Ouch. Inflation is far too important a problem for the White House to keep making statements like this. It’s either straight ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics. https://t.co/XgKfEICZpk

My message to @POTUS is simple: this is a time of war and global peril.

This is pitiful. Nation needs bold ideas. No more blame games. Golden moment for bold ideas instead if picking on ma and pa gas station owners. pic.twitter.com/Y3XyH5JD6d

Why do you hate minorities and small business so much? Only 4% of gas stations are owned by big oil, they average about $65k a year, have a 1% profit margin and majority are owned by Native Americans and Indians. Seems like you’re trying to bankrupt them.https://t.co/v5fon3PQTG pic.twitter.com/DNZshCh5Lh

My message to the President. The majority of these station owns are literally making pennies on the dollar the margins are so tight on gas. Unleash Americas Oil and gas industry again to save our country. If not this then 100% blame is on you.

There is no chance Biden will shift gears because this pain for Americans least able to bear the burden of Bidenflation is all part of the fantasy-based “transition” to non-existent green energy sufficient to provide for the population’s needs, as the Biden administration has repeatedly stated.
On the bright side, it seems that the more Biden tries to shame and blame everyone else for the results of his own policies, his poll numbers drop still further. How low can they go?DONATE
