Biden Complains about Life in His America: ‘Gas Prices Are Exceedingly High’
Biden put on spot by reporter
Democrat Joe Biden reacted to his appalling approval ratings by blaming it on high gas prices in an interview with a local TV news station.
Biden made the remarks to WKRC-TV anchor Kyle Inskeep.
“I am sorry to keep you waiting, I really am,” Biden told Inskeep to begin the interview.
Biden started by assuring Inskeep that people in Ohio and northern Kentucky would see plenty of federal cash for bridges and roads.
But the reporter did not allow Biden to ramble about his plans to further hyperinflation, instead, he asked more direct questions.
Infrastructure projects “are going to be impacted in some way by these global supply chain issues that all of us are being impacted by,” Inskeep noted.
“What is your administration doing on the front end to really mitigate or lessen these impacts?” he asked.
Biden admitted there was a shortage of everything from “foodstuffs” to “semiconductors” before droning on about how he’s gotten port workers to offload ships 24 hours a day.
He claimed that his infrastructure bill will work to reduce supply chain gaps “not just now, but in the future.”
Inskeep eventually brought up Biden’s underwater poll numbers.
They’re “gloomy,” as even USA Today has acknowledged.
“I want to turn to your polling really quickly here,” said Inskeep.
"The latest polling from USA Today has your approval rating at 38 percent.
“A new CNN poll shows 58 percent of Americans believe that you aren’t not paying enough attention to the nation’s most important issues."
“I’m wondering when you combine that with the election results we saw last week. Is this giving you kind of a sign that maybe you need to recalibrate some of your administration’s priorities as you approach that one-year mark in office?” he asked.
“I didn’t run because of the polls,” Biden said, adding that he believes universal pre-K and other handouts in his yet-to-be-passed, now $1.75 trillion Build Back Better bill will turn it all around.
Biden finally admitted he was running a country that is terrified and rudderless.
“Look… a lot of people are worried. Think about this. Look, what, 750,000 people have died because of COVID,” he said.
“The psychological scars that has put on so many people,” Biden admitted.
"Schools have not been open because of COVID, and they’re just getting open again."
“We’re in a situation where there’s a lot, a lot of anxiety.
"Gas prices are up, exceedingly high," he complained.
"They’ve been up this high before, but not recently."
"That’s why I have the attorney general taking a look at whether or not these gas companies are gouging people — because, although the price of oil is coming down some, the price of gas hasn’t come down some."
“So there’s a lot of things that have people, that are really, a great deal of anxiety, a great deal of concern,” he also said.
