Fox New reporter Peter Doocy sparred with White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre over Biden’s push for expensive electric cars to offset rising gas prices.
Gas prices are at record highs because of Joe Biden’s war on domestic energy production.
The Biden White House is telling the peasants to purchase a $60,000+ electric vehicle and stop complaining about $5+ a gallon gas.
“A lot of people can’t afford a $61,000 electric car and they are also having a hard time affording gas right now. That sounds like a painful transition,” Doocy said.
“We are in a transition to clean energy…it’s going to create jobs,” KJP said.
“Yeah but who can afford an electric car? The average price is $61,000! Is that the choice $5 per gallon gas or a $61,000 electric car?” Doocy asked Jean-Pierre.
“That’s apples to oranges. It’s not the same,” she said as she rambled on about Biden’s gimmicky gas tax holiday.
Karine Jean-Pierre boasted that Biden’s gas tax holiday will save Americans 18 cents on the federal level.
