Are you one of the ingrates who aren’t celebrating the fact that under Joe Biden’s brilliant economic leadership, Fourth of July barbecues will cost Americans $0.16 less than last year?
Well, if you are, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has a message for you:
"I would say if you don't like hot dogs, you might not care the reduction of cost," says Jen Psaki when challenged by Peter Doocy on the 16 cents savings video

In other words, if saving $0.16 on your hotdogs doesn’t cancel out skyrocketing gas prices — or, in some cases, not being able to even find gas — then you can choke on your potato salad (assuming you can afford it).
Food prices have increased in the last few months
Gas is $1.50+/gallon more

Sorry to not join the media's "SLAY QUEEN" chorus on these types of responses but her out-of-touch and economically illiterate condescension isn't appealing to me. https://t.co/DYu0wXZjLP

Psaki is a pedantic little person who cares nothing about you. https://t.co/m8D1ErM4Kn
