Joe Biden’s Director of the National Economic Council on Thursday let the mask slip when asked what he would tell Americans who can’t afford high gas prices for years to come.
“What do you say to those families that say, ‘listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years?’” CNN host Victor Blackwell asked Brian Deese.
“This is about the future of the Liberal World Order and we have to stand firm.,” Biden advisor Brian Deese said.
Brian Deese said the quiet part out loud.
CNN asks WH's Brian Deese what he'd tell Americans who can't afford to pay high gas prices for months/years if military analysts project the Russia-Ukraine war to go so long

Earlier Thursday Joe Biden made a similar statement when a reporter asked him how long Americans should expect to pay high gas prices.
“How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay a premium for this war?” a New York Times reporter asked Biden.
“As long as it takes,” Biden responded. “So that Russia cannot in fact defeat Ukraine and move beyond Ukraine.”
