Wow, President Biden! A whole 16 cents of savings?! Now, Americans can go out and buy — well, that won’t buy anything.
If you haven’t heard — and how could you unless you’re on the human cesspool known as Twitter — the White House tweeted out a video on Thursday touting a total savings of $0.16 for an entire Independence Day barbecue compared this time last year.
No joke. Here it is:
Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish. pic.twitter.com/7h9qLauIbC— The White House (@WhiteHouse) July 1, 2021
If you think about it, including the price of gas and air conditioning a home in early July for those that try to beat the heat during the holiday weekend, Americans will actually paying more than they did last year for the same barbecue — if people’s individual states even allowed them to have one. That's not even taking into account the cost of fireworks, if they're legal in someone's respective state, and party decorations and favors to celebrate the occasion.
They’re actually proud of a 16-cent savings for a meal that might cost in the hundreds for cookouts that are meant to feed entire parties of people.
The “Twitterverse” basically laughed in the White House Twitter account’s face at the strange flex.
WTF is this Chinese propaganda? Anyone who actually shops, which you all apparently do not, can see their food budgets going through the roof. Mine is up almost 30% from this time last year. My gas is 42% higher, rent raised 28%, cost of living is crushing the middle class— Saved $0.16 on My 4th BBQ (@ElijahSchaffer) July 2, 2021

Bidens administration is such an abysmal failure that the white house is now posting this. Let that sink in for a bit.— Styxhexenhammer666 (@Styx666Official) July 2, 2021
Funny how the Farm Bureau can report these numbers yet a trip to any supermarket proves the opposite reality. Is lying to the American people about $0.16 worth the political capital you will lose for such a pathetic tweet?— Josh Dolin (@jDaz) July 2, 2021
