Despite his longstanding allegiance to Democrats, one has to give credit where credit is due, and credit is definitely due to none other than billionaire Jeff Bezos.
After all, he has openly and publicly blasted the White House for brazen “disinformation” in recent months, a shocking turnaround for someone who once appeared to make most of his media appearances about Trump.
Then again, Bezos, unlike Buttigieg and other useful idiots, didn’t become a billionaire from leeching off taxpayers; he actually had to display a modicum of business sense, not to mention a basic understanding of market fundamentals.
This basic understanding is in especially short supply in the White House, given the nonsense that “Biden” posted.
“My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now,” Biden’s Twitter account blared.
“Do it now.”
Wow. Authoritarian, much?
While Democrats obviously detest small- and medium-sized business owners (just look at how many they eagerly decimated during the pandemic), it’s still a tad aggressive to openly dictate prices in a highly volatile market.
Unless they’re ready to embrace full-blown communism, like most debt-laden college students appear to be.
One of those same students likely made Biden’s threatening post in the first place, given their rather well-documented absence of self-control.
Basically, yet another useless intern took it upon themselves to post for Biden, much in the same way a similar lemming likely decided to leak the Supreme Court decision.
Regardless of who the actual author of is, the tweet did occur under Biden’s “official” account, and it drew a rather rapid response from Bezos.
“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,” Bezos wryly remarked.
What a way for a typically diehard Democrat to finally start seeing through the nonsense himself.
Not to mention, what a way for yet another White House propagandist to reveal how deeply implanted her idiocy truly is.
Amazingly, Resident Idiot Katrine Jean-Pierre, who masquerades as a “press secretary,” had the actual gall to try to argue with billionaire Bezos about economics.
Despite clearly knowing nothing about economics.
“Oil prices have dropped by about $15 over the past month, but prices at the pump have barely come down. That’s not ‘basic market dynamics.’ It’s a market that is failing the American consumer,” Jean-Pierre whined.
Perhaps the “press secretary” could explain why none other than the state of California just jacked up its gasoline tax, again, despite the struggles of the “American consumer.”
After all, no one profits more from gasoline tax increases than the nefarious government itself, which gains far more per gallon than any individual gas station owner ever will.
Astonishingly, Jean-Pierre continued to display her idiocy in yet another tweet directed at Bezos, who is likely becoming aghast that he ever supported the Democrats in the first place.
“But I guess it’s not surprising that you think oil and gas companies using market power to reap record profits at the expense of the American people is the way our economy is supposed to work,” Jean-Pierre whined.
First off, OPEC+ sets the price per barrel, not individual oil and gas companies.
Secondly, Biden himself contributed to so-called “record profits” by passing rather useless sanctions on Putin, as those sanctions have clearly harmed American consumers vastly more than Russian consumers.
In fact, the economic disparity between the two is so obvious that even the leftist rag Newsweekacknowledged that Biden’s sanctions have basically achieved nothing, aside from disempowering the American consumer.
Thirdly, Jean-Pierre can’t even answer basic questions without fumbling through an oversized binder, blinking endlessly, acting outraged, and otherwise demonstrating complete and total incompetence.
Clearly, this one coasts on her race and sexual identity alone to deflect much-deserved criticism of her horrific performance.
Psaki was bad, but Jean-Pierre is really, really bad.
Though their respective ethics, or utter lack thereof, are likely identical.
The only type of “equity” that defines the Democrats …
