For years, the corporate-controlled media has been in the back pocket of the Democrat Party.
Democrats have always counted on the left-wing press to help sell their phony narratives and radical agenda to the American people.
But jaws dropped when a CNN host called out this White House Senior Adviser over one outrageous claim he made about skyrocketing gas prices.
Polls consistently show inflation is one of the top concerns for voters, as the price on everything from groceries to gas is skyrocketing.
On Thursday, gas prices set another record high of $4.715 per gallon.
According to Bloomberg, this level of inflation will currently cost American households an extra $5,200 in 2022, roughly $433 per month.
But Joe Biden refuses to accept any responsibility for skyrocketing gas prices.
Instead, Joe Biden tries to blame it all on Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine.
Since gas prices were on the rise well before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, most Americans aren’t buying Biden’s attempt to pass the buck to Vladimir Putin.
In an attempt to calm public fears, at the end of April, Joe Biden announced that he ordered the U.S. Department of Energy to release oil from the strategic petroleum reserves, which he promised would help lower skyrocketing gas prices.
“These barrels will be delivered in May and June, and are the first U.S. sale in the largest release from reserves from both the United States and the rest of the world in history,” the Biden administration said in a press release. “Together, these releases will put more than one million barrels per day on the market over the next six months, and will help address supply disruptions caused by Putin’s further invasion of Ukraine and the Price Hike that Americans are facing at the pump.”
CNN shockingly called out Biden’s advisor
Of course, Joe Biden’s claim that releasing oil from the strategic reserves would lower gas prices turned out to be a lie.
And on Wednesday, one CNN host called out a White House Senior Adviser for claiming that Biden has “done everything within his power” to bring down gas prices.
“[T]he President has already enacted a massive piece of legislation called the Infrastructure Act, which is designed to actually help rebuild the supply chains and to fix the rails and to fix the roads and to fix the air and to fix the water,” White House Senior Adviser and Infrastructure Implementation Coordinator Mitch Landrieu claimed on CNN’s Newsroom. “On top of that, he released products from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to bring down gas prices,” he continued, before adding “and then, yes, he is, in fact, calling on Congress to pass legislation that is going to help make it . . .”
Before Landrieu could finish his sentence, co-host Victor Blackwell interrupted him, saying, “but they certainly didn’t bring down gas prices.”
Once again, Landrieu attempted to spin Joe Biden’s response, claiming on one hand that the President “doesn’t control the price of gas” while also saying Biden has “done everything within his power” to lower the price of gas.
Blackwell interrupted Landrieu for a second time, declaring that “the President said that releasing from the Strategic Reserve would bring down the price of gas, and all we’ve seen since then was a series of record highs.”
Democrats also turn on Biden
It’s not just the corporate-controlled press who are starting to turn on Joe Biden.
Democrats who are up for re-election in November are also calling out Joe Biden over high gas prices in an attempt to distance themselves from him ahead of the Midterms.
On Thursday, in a New York Times article titled, “There Is Way More Biden Can Do to Lower Prices,” Democrat Representative Ro Khanna slammed Joe Biden for failing to reduce 40-year-high inflation.
“There is no patience for incrementalism or political spin about economic numbers in these times,” he wrote. “Democrats can’t just blame the Republicans for lacking a plan. People elected us to solve problems. We told them that the government could improve their lives and they want to see tangible action, movement and energy out of Washington.”
With less than six months to go until the November Midterms, the political atmosphere is getting worse for Democrats, as Joe Biden’s failures continue to create crisis after crisis.
Inflation is surging.
The border is wide open.
Crime is skyrocketing in Democrat-run cities.
Joe Biden is on the verge of bungling America into World War III with Russia.
As Joe Biden’s problems continue to mount, even more corporate-controlled media outlets and Democrat officials are likely to turn on Biden and try to distance themselves from him before November.
