Glaring typo in Biden tweet distracts from absurdly tone deaf message

President Biden served up a tweet Monday on gas prices that was akin to the old saying that it feels so good when you stop hitting yourself with a hammer — to make matters even worse the accompanying graphic featured a glaring typo.

The tweet highlighted the projected savings people would realize at current prices compared to where gas prices were at their “peak.” The national average for a gallon of gas is currently $4.32, according to AAA, compared to $5.01 just a few weeks back.

“For American families looking for a little more breathing room, these savings matter,” Biden tweeted.

A graphic that misspelled “person” further stated: “At current prices, the average driver will spend $35 less per month for one peson [sic]” or “$70 less per month for a family with two cars than they would if gas prices stayed at their peak.”

The tone-deaf tweet calls to mind the administration boasting last year that the cost of a Fourth of July cookout went down by 16 cents compared to the prior year. It’s almost as if the White House believes people don’t recall that the national average was around $1.97 a gallon in November 2020, when Biden was deemed to be the next president.

Biden’s tweet is the best example that Democrats are taking a beating in the polls over 40-year high inflation marked by skyrocketing energy costs. And while Team Biden STILL tries to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin, they have diversified their blame game adding Big Oil, mom-and-pop gas station owners, and the Republican Party to the blame sheet. Anything and everything, other than the policies that Biden began ushering in on day one that saw gas prices begin a steady climb toward the sky.

The media does not like to remind the American public that Biden vowed to move away from fossil fuels while campaigning for office. And then there are the various officials in the administration,  beginning with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who seemingly celebrate the high price of gas as a means to force Americans into electric vehicles — which depend on fossil fuels to charge the batteries.

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
