President Joe Biden seems to think he can just beg gas station owners to lower prices and they’ll magically make it happen.
“The White House declined to clarify President Biden’s social media post demanding that gas stations bring down the price of gas,” reports Fox News.
“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,” Biden tweeted.
His idiotic tweet continued, demanding gas stations to hop outside and recalibrate their federally regulated pumps.
“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 added to the already stupid tweet.
Biden’s tweet was mocked by critics. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos called the tweet “misdirection.”
“Ouch. Inflation is far too important a problem for the White House to keep making statements like this,” Bezos said. “It’s either straight ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics.”
It’s really sad that our president doesn’t understand basic market dynamics.
