Psaki Dismisses The Price Of The Most Expensive Thanksgiving Ever

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki minimized the strain that the inflation crisis is putting on Americans as she was asked about President Biden’s decision to go to “a billionaire’s compound in Nantucket” for the most expensive Thanksgiving in history.

“What message does it send to the middle-class Americans President Biden says that he’s trying to help who are struggling this week to cover the cost of the most expensive Thanksgiving ever, that the president is going to take a few days off at a billionaire’s compound in Nantucket?” Fox News’ Peter Doocy asked.

“Well, first I would say, I don’t know if you’ve ever cooked a turkey before, but a twenty-pound turkey is a pretty big turkey, I think we can all agree. They’re about $1 more,” Psaki said.

It should be noted that the price of a turkey is 24% more expensive than last year, and the overall Thanksgiving dinner is 14% more expensive.

“So not to minimize that, any increase in prices is something the president is concerned about, as is evidenced by his announcement today and as his efforts to push forward on additional relief for the American people,” Psaki continued. “But I just want to be clear that there’s an abundance of Turkeys available, about $1 more for a 20-pound bird, which is a huge bird, if you’re feeding a very big family and that’s something that again, we’ve been working to make sure people have more money in their pockets to address it as the economy is turning back on.”

While the Biden administration claims they have been working “to make sure people have more money in their pockets,” inflation has resulted in people earning less. According to the Department of Labor, as of October 2021 “real average hourly earnings” and “real average weekly earnings” had decreased 1.2% and 1.6% from last year, respectively.

In contrast, the Trump economy saw an increase in “real average hourly earnings” and “real average weekly earnings” 3.2% and 5.0%, respectively, from pre-pandemic October 2019 to the height of the pandemic in October 2020.

    This level of tin ear is astounding. This “lady” really does not care if families have to take out a loan to by groceries for a thanksgiving meal, I exaggerate a little. The inflation is causing people to chose between what few extras for the family and putting gas in the car or food on the table.

BREAKING: House fails to pass stopgap funding bill to avoid government shutdown

The House of Representatives failed to pass a continuing resolution negotiated between conservative and moderate House Republicans in an effort to avoid a government shutdown.

The Spending Reduction and Border Security Act was introduced by Republican Rep. Byron Donalds of Florida on Sept. 18, following negotiations between the conservative House Freedom Caucus and centrist Main Street Caucus, as a compromise between divided factions of the House Republican Conference to achieve unanimity while avoiding a government shutdown. The bill failed the House by a vote of 198 yeas to 232 nays, with all Democrats voting against the bill.

The bill would fund the government until Oct. 31 and cut public spending by 8.1285%, according to the bill’s text. This would yield $1.59 trillion for one month until the House and Senate pass 12 appropriations bills to provide permanent funding for the 2024 fiscal year.

The Biden administration issued a statement on Friday staunchly opposing the bill, claiming that its cuts to public spending were too severe. It indicated that President Joe Biden will veto the bill if it is presented to him, which means it is unlikely to be passed by the Democratic-led Senate, either.

The Senate has been working on its own bipartisan continuing resolution to fund the government, which includes funding for Ukraine. House Republicans have criticized the bill, with Donalds saying that it is “dead on arrival” in the House.
