Jeff Bezos mocked a tweet from President Biden that blamed gasoline stations for the high price of fuel.
Biden said, “Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product.”
He ended the tweet with an order, “And do it now.”
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.
Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now.

Bezos called out Biden explaining Biden is either trying to misdirect the country or that he doesn’t understand basic economics.
Ouch. Inflation is far too important a problem for the White House to keep making statements like this. It’s either straight ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics. https://t.co/XgKfEICZpk

Biden also took heat from the oil industry regarding the tweet.
Working on it Mr. President. In the meantime – have a Happy 4th and please make sure the WH intern who posted this tweet registers for Econ 101 for the fall semester… https://t.co/6yLpbDDRKc

The New York Post reported on both tweets criticizing Biden including a comment from White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
In response to Bezos, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre noted Sunday: “Oil prices have dropped by about $15 over the past month, but prices at the pump have barely come down. That’s not ‘basic market dynamics.’ It’s a market that is failing the American consumer.”
Biden expressed the same view in a speech.

Biden is so bad that even Bezos, a liberal billionaire and owner of The Washington Post, is calling out the president.
The truth is Biden is once again blaming others for his horrible decisions.
