Once again the Democrat party is doing anything it can to deflect blame from President Biden. Right now Democrats are trying their best to convince Americans that the one to blame for skyrocketing gas prices is Russian President Vladimir Putin, not Joe Biden.
During an interview with “unDivided” podcast, Democrat Rep. Kim Schrier said that Putin should be exclusively blamed for skyrocketing prices over the last few weeks.
Fox News reports:
“I believe a couple of things,” answered Schrier. “Right now, in the last two weeks, this is Putin. You should be blaming Putin, if anyone for this.”
“To not blame Putin, first of all, is denying reality, and second, frankly, I think is un-American,” the Democrat added. “So this is Putin’s fault.”
Immediately following the claim, however, Schrier then made the case the rising prices before Putin invaded Ukraine could be blamed on the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent supply and demand reactions of the market.
She continued: “When people were not going to work and driving was down, gas prices were down. As demand increased and rigs had not yet been turned on, there was a supply-demand issue like with everything else in this country and that [the pandemic] was to blame.”
