First was Colbert:
.@StephenAtHome: "Today, the average gas price in America hit an all-time record high of over $4/gallon. OK, that stings, but a clean conscience is worth a buck or two. It’s important. I’m willing to pay $4/gallon. Hell, I’ll pay $15 a gallon b/c I drive a Tesla" pic.twitter.com/my8Ukya5rQ

Is there not one PR person on Hollywood calling up celebrities saying: “Look, I know you want to look like you are caring but the American people are really struggling with the economy. Telling them to pay more in gas is a bad image and you shouldn’t do it.”
I’m starting to believe that this us Russian disinformation.
I can’t think of something that will turn the American people against Ukraine faster than doubling their gas and food bills and telling them it’s a sacrifice for Ukraine.
