Republicans tear up Biden talking points for ‘chatting with your uncle at Thanksgiving’: Sounds ‘lousy’

Written by

Republicans are tearing up a list highlighting President Biden’s “accomplishments,” which White House said could be used as talking points “for when you chat with your uncle at Thanksgiving.”

“Using White House talking points to try to gaslight your own family about the realities of this administration seems like a lousy way to spend Thanksgiving,” said Rep. Ralph Norman, RS.C., for Fox News Digital.

Earlier Wednesday, White House Deputy Communications Director Jennifer Molina tweeted President Biden list of accomplishments, writing: “Bring the receipts to Thanksgiving dinner!”

The list of Biden’s accomplishments included “10 million jobs created” and “no tax on people making over $400,000 – he kept his promise.”

“Gas prices are down $1.35/gallon since June and inflation is slowing,” the list says.

“Meanwhile, Republicans in Congress are extreme,” it added. “Proposes a national abortion ban, plans to gut Medicare and Social Security, [and] trying to raise costs for Americans by repealing the Inflation Reduction Act.”

The Republican National Committee highlighted gas prices on Twitter.

Biden’s oft-repeated claims of creating 10 million jobs through the US bailout have been repeatedly fact-checked as being exaggerated by as much as 8 million, not including the unique economic conditions created by the COVID-19 pandemic. And while Biden has not introduced a tax hike on people making less than $400,000, many economists blame his US bailout for triggering the current inflationary crisis, which is often referred to as a hidden tax on all Americans. And while gas prices have fallen since June to $3.58, they are still up about $1.20 since Biden first took office.

Meanwhile, Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings expected to cost 20% more than last year as a result of inflation, according to a new report from the American Farm Bureau Federation.

“Every American family at the dinner table knows that Joe Biden has created the most expensive Thanksgiving ever, and his war on American energy has sent the price of gas, diesel and home heating skyrocketing,” said Rep. Elise StefanikRN.Y., told Fox News Digital.

“The administration’s actions have ignited inflation and made your Thanksgiving dinner 20% more expensive,” said Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-La. “It’s nothing to celebrate.”

“The only time Americans say ‘thank you’ to the president is when they pay their heating or gas bill at the pump,” said Rep. Tom Emmer, R-Minn. “The Biden administration’s efforts to undermine American energy production mean we’ll be paying 28% more in home heating costs this winter, in addition to paying more for almost everything.”

Norman said Biden’s list is out of touch with reality.

“Under Joe Biden’s so-called leadership, we are now battling skyrocketing inflation, record levels of illegal immigration, rising violent crime, military recruiting shortages, a fentanyl crisis, a disastrous foreign policy, a wide range of left-wing legislation, unsustainable spending and debt, a weakened economy, and a host of other big problems,” he said.

Rep. Marsha BlackburnR-Tenn., told Fox News Digital that now is not the time for Biden to take a victory lap.

“Almost every family sitting around the Thanksgiving table can agree: prices, from the gas pump to the grocery store, are out of control and hurting the wallet,” Blackburn said. “While President Biden takes another victory lap, inflation remains at a 40-year high, more than half of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, and Thanksgiving dinner is expected to cost 20% more than last year.”

“All this cheat sheet accomplishes is to show the American people how out of touch the Biden White House is with reality,” she said. “Ron Klain and his staff should respect the fact that ‘that uncle’ will be with you long after they leave the White House. Some bridges aren’t worth burning.”
