During Thursday’s so-called “reality check” segment on CNN’s New Day, John Avlon blamed everything but President Biden for skyrocketing inflation and gas prices that have impacted millions of Americans. Avlon complained that Republicans are criticizing Biden for a struggling economy and suggested that there was “something more sinister at work.”

After implying that Republican concerns with inflation and gas prices are simply “campaign style talking points,” Avlon claimed that oil companies have the power to lower prices and that high prices are a result of rapid COVID economic recovery.
