Earlier this year, just before Memorial Day weekend, Jen Psaki told Americans not to believe their lying eyes and that, thanks to Joe Biden, they were actually paying less for gas than they used to.
Guess that over the past several months, Psaki and the Biden administration have realized that we’re not going to fall for that anymore. So they’ve shifted gears somewhat. Now, they’re admitting that gas is indeed more expensive, but they’re contending that it’s ultimately for our own good:

Fingers on the pulse, this administration!
You know Democrats screwed up an issue when they blame climate change.
Immigration? Clearly climate change.
Afghanistan? Climate. Change.
Inflation? 🎶 Climate Change 🎶 https://t.co/KuWW43XUJk

Maybe if they say “climate crisis” enough times, people will forget that they keep getting screwed in the name of saving the planet.
Yep, the “climate crisis” is more important than the price of something 330 million americans use everyday. Got it.

Good thing people making under $400,000 a year don't need gasoline, or else this would basically be a tax hi–

“Gas is high because we have to fight climate change.” That’s where they are. That’s how they are excusing this away.
Everyone with half a brain knows it’s a tax hike in disguise on middle class rural America where people HAVE TO DRIVE TO WORK. People who make under 400k. https://t.co/Mzn4BQAXKV

Fun fact: farming requires fuel, and lots of it. And trucking said food to your local grocery store also requires fuel. If you enjoy eating, get ready to pay a lot more at the store as well.

Narrator: They never cared.
And if there’s any justice, that will come back to bite them. Hard.
