I hate the libs so much.
Jen Psaki has proved once again that she and the version of liberalism she supports is not only evil, but truly the antithesis of what it means to be a human being.
Luckily for us, there’s one media figure willing to stand up to Psaki and the decisions made by her boss and his administration — and that’s Fox News’ Peter Doocy.
White House Correspondent Peter Doocy pressed White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Wednesday over the Biden administration’s prediction of rising energy costs for Americans.

“A lot of focus on the economic pain in Russia, potentially, from these sanctions, but what about the economic pain here?” Doocy pressed Psaki. “The Russians are saying they think gas prices in Europe are going to double. How high could they get here?”
Jen Psaki’s response is enough to make your head explode.
Peter Doocy: “Gas in California is almost $5 a gallon. Should people across the country expect to see that kind of a number when they go to gas up their car?”

Doocy followed up, asking, “But even without all this going on, gas in California is almost five dollars a gallon. Should people across the country expect to see that kind of a number when they go to gas up their car?”
“Well again I think as you heard the president say last week, standing up for our values is not without cost,” Psaki replied.
You can watch the entire exchange below:
Biden said Tuesday at the White House that the “administration is using every tool” at their “disposal to protect American businesses and consumers from rising prices at the pump.”
“Defending freedom will have costs for us as well and here at home. We need to be honest about that,” Biden added.

Should we be honest about the fact that Biden’s policies and the “green” policies of liberal Europe are responsible for the conflict in Ukraine? Without U.S. energy independence we are doomed to grovel at the feet of Putin and Middle East nations for fairly priced oil. That is an obvious recipe for disaster, one that could’ve been prevented if Biden didn’t destroy Trump’s energy policies on day one.
Some experts are predicting that gas prices could reach as high as seven dollars due to the escalating crisis with Russia and Ukraine.
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 0.6% in January, marking a 7.5% increase on a year-to-year growth basis. Energy prices rose by 7.5%.
Consumer prices also soared by 7.5%, a 435% rise from the previous year and the largest increase since February 1982. The average gas price currently stands at $3.5 per gallon, $1.00 higher than in 2021, according to AAA Gas Prices.
Be prepared, folks. It’s only going to get worse before it eventually gets better.
