Biden Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm appeared on CNBC this week and laughed when asked about how to lower the rising gas prices that are hurting so many Americans.
She then tried to deflect by blaming OPEC, without ever acknowledging that America was energy independent before the Biden administration took power.
It was a stunningly tone-deaf moment.

Biden Energy Sec. Granholm laughs at question about boosting oil production: ‘That is hilarious’
Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Friday laughed at a question about boosting America’s domestic oil production, calling it “hilarious.”
Bloomberg host Tom Keene noted America’s rising gas prices and asked the energy secretary, “What is the Granholm plan to increase oil production in America?”
Granholm immediately began laughing. “That is hilarious,” she said. Would that I had the magic wand on this.”
“As you know, of course, oil is a global market. It is controlled by a cartel. That cartel is called OPEC, and they made a decision yesterday that they were not going to increase beyond what they were already planning.”

President Biden has overhauled America’s approach to its oil industry.
In June, Biden suspended oil drilling leases in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the latest move in a series of sweeping policy changes to how the U.S. approaches the oil industry.
