Hosts of “The Five” criticized Biden on Wednesday for taking a lavish Thanksgiving vacation on the Massachusetts island of Nantucket with a former adviser to President Carter billionaire.
Biden arrived on the island on Wednesday to visit former Carter domestic policy adviser David Rubenstein, a Baltimore native who founded The Carlyle Group and is a former chairman of the Smithsonian.
Dana Perino noted that the president, whom she called “Scranton Joe” after his working-class birthplace, is going on vacation to Rubenstein’s $ 30 million estate while Americans fight amid his inflation, crime and border crises.
“Some say [it] looks far out of touch with the problems Americans face in everyday life this Thanksgiving, “she said, adding that recent polls show that inflation is America’s current biggest concern.
Biden spokeswoman Jen Psaki’s defended Biden’s actions, pointing out that the average turkey price has only risen “about a dollar more for a 20-pound bird, which is a huge bird if you feed a large family.”
“Joe is literally giving us the bird,” Greg Gutfeld remarked in response. “I love this message – ‘Relax guys, you get your yams’ – his polls are so bad that the Thanksgiving turkey thought of pardoning him.”
Host Dagen McDowell continued to rip off Energy Minister Jen Granholm for an equally criticized message as she claimed not to know the country’s average fuel consumption despite being part of the discussions that led to the small release from the strategic oil reserves.
“Let me talk about the completely incompetent clattering clatter that is our energy secretary,” McDowell said. “Why did they choose her? She is completely incompetent.”
McDowell went on to suggest that Biden join Rubenstein for Thanksgiving over concerns that he will blackmail former President Carter, who is often seen as the most economically incompetent president.
Biden spends Thanksgiving with David Rubenstein, who worked in the Carter administration. I suppose he’s going to sit down and say ‘tell me I’m not as bad as Jimmy’.
Perino later added that Carter, now 97, must see the media and wonder why they decided to report so much on his administration’s stagflation crisis and largely ignore similar inflation under Biden.
