Biden economic adviser Brian Deese appeared on CNN this week and was asked about the war in Ukraine and American gas prices.
The CNN host was wondering what he would say to Americans who are concerned about high gas prices.
Deese reponded by saying that this was all necessary to preserve the ‘liberal world order’ whatever that is.
This is this type of thing thing that the left claims is all a big conspiracy theory and this guy came right out and said it.

High gas prices worth it for ‘future of liberal world order,’ White House economics adviser tells CNN
White House economic adviser Brian Deese suggested the pain at the pump was a price Americans had to pay for the “future of the liberal world order,” in a CNN interview on Thursday.
“CNN Newsroom” host Victor Blackwell played a clip of President Biden telling a reporter at Thursday’s NATO Summit that Americans can continue to pay a premium for gas “as long as it takes” to win the war in Ukraine.
Blackwell asked Deese how the White House would respond to Americans worried that they won’t be able to survive paying close to or over $5 a gallon, potentially for “years” to come.
“The military analysts, the Director of National Intelligence say this can be a long war measured in years. I think everybody understands why this is happening. But is it sustainable? What do you say to those families that say, ‘Listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years. This is just not sustainable,'” Blackwell questioned.
Deese initially responded, “What you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes. This is about the future of the liberal world order, and we have to stand firm.” The comment caused a stir on social media.
