Joe Biden and Democrats are desperately trying to avoid taking blame for our ridiculous gas prices and the media is bending over backwards to try to help them do it.
This week, Biden is trying to blame Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, even though gas prices have been rising for months.
Biden used the phrase ‘Putin price hike’ and within 24 hours, liberal media outlets began using the same term repeatedly.
Breitbart News reports:
Joe Biden Blames ‘Putin’s Price Hike’ on Gas After Banning Russian Oil Imports
President Joe Biden announced his decision to ban oil imports from Russia at the White House on Tuesday, just days after his administration argued against the idea.
“We will not be part of subsidizing Putin’s war,” Biden said, painting the decision as a moral one after Russian president Vladimir Putin escalated his war in Ukraine.
Biden’s ban was announced as he faced growing pressure from a bipartisan coalition of members of Congress to pass their own bill to ban Russian oil imports.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki and other Biden officials spent days defending their decision not to ban oil imports from Russia, warning it would only enrich Putin by raising gas prices…
“I said defending freedom is going to cost,” he reminded the audience, before trying to put the blame for higher gas prices squarely on Putin.
“I’m going to do everything I can to minimize Putin’s price hike here at home,” he promised.
The media lapdogs picked this up and ran with it.

Putin is an awful person, but his invasion of Ukraine began two weeks ago.
Gas prices have been rising for months. Biden and the media can’t blame this on Putin.
