Yesterday the White House put out a statement on their Twitter account touting the reduction in price of cookout on the 4th of July:

16 cents? That’s what they are touting and taking credit for? Geez, that’s not enough to even care about.
Peter Doocy asked Psaki about this today:
Doocy asks “So, does the White House think that 16 cents off of a barbecue has more of an impact on people’s lives than gas being a dollar more this time at this 4th of July?”
Psaki responds with the dumbest response, saying “if you don’t like hot dogs, you may not care of the reduction of cost.”
Um, that misses the point entirely. People are spending over a dollar more on average in gas prices, which means it costs them more just to get to the cookout with their friends. A lot more than 16 cents.
The other way to look at this is that if all team Biden can come up with to celebrate is 16 cents off your 4th of July cookout, then it shows just how terribly they are doing with the economy. Inflation is up, which means prices are up across the board. Gas prices are up. Business are going out of business because they can’t find people who want to work because they make too much on unemployment. But hey, you get 16 cents off your holiday cookout!
