CNN Anchor Shoots Down Biden Official’s Attempt To Blame Gas Prices On Putin

On Monday, Biden administration economic adviser Brian Deese was shot down by CNN anchor Jake Tapper as he attempted to blame the rising gas prices on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

“Today, on average, gas is costing $4.60 a gallon, that’s up more than $0.10 a gallon from last week, almost $0.50 from last month,” Tapper began. “We’re one week away from Memorial Day, should Americans be buckling up for these high prices all summer?”

Deese claimed that President Biden’s administration was working hard to quell the rising gas prices and then blamed the prices on Putin.

“We’re doing everything we can to bring those prices down. As you know, this all emanates from Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine —” Deese said.

“Not all of it,” Tapper interjected. “Not all of it. Some of it, yes.”

“Just to be really clear, since troops started massing on the Ukrainian border and there was a concern that Russian supplies would come off, we have seen prices at the pump go up to $1.50. That is the price hike that is associated with the impact of taking Russian supply off the market,” Deese continued. “So, we’re doing everything we can to bring more supply onto the market.”

During Biden’s first year in office, gas prices rose nearly 50%; rising from $2.42 per gallon in January 2021 to $3.41 per gallon in January 2022 – a month before Russia launched its invasion of Ukraine on February 24.

    It’s too little, too late Jake. Remember when every time Biden made a clown statement it was an earth shattering event? Remember when MSM fawned over his favorite ice cream flavor? Well, the time is coming to pay the piper Tapper. The left media is trying to jump on the train, but it has already left the station—CNN,et al

    The Biden Regime isn’t doing “all that they can” to bring more supply to the market when they cancel oil and gas exploration. It’s illegal and unconstitutional for the government to play favorites in the energy market as to what type of energy it likes or doesn’t. It’s also illegal and unconstitutional for the government to play favorites as to what companies or sectors of the economy it favors or disfavors.

    Dementia Joe always has been and always will be a useless liar and a horrible “public servant.” 80 million votes? Absolutely laughable, but, hey, at least we don’t have a president hurting the feelings of today’s thin-skinned liberals. Oh, and for the record, I’m not a Trump fan or follower. Honestly though, he was a million better than this joke of a POTUS!

    The democrats, since Obama, have always diverted their agenda away fom their poor decisions to, what a lot of democratic voters, believe believe is true facts.

    Putin would have ZERO effect if Biden had not done everything he has done to reduce domestic production. We were energy independent and an EXPORTER under Trump which means Putin would have had NO impact on our energy prices and US exporters would enable Europe to embargo Russian energy which would stop the war. Biden’s policies are 100% responsible for the gas prices.

    I defy anyone who says life is better under biden, than before President Trump was forced out by the Democrat’s coup. The unthinkable became a reality when Communist sympathizers seized power with a fraudulent election, revealing the frailty of our Constitusional Republic.
