BREAKING NEWS – Los Angeles, California – Prominent Twitters users attempted to fact-check Joe Biden after the president told a reporter that gas has “always” been $7 a gallon in California.
“The inflation report is out. Have you seen gas prices around here in LA? It’s 7 bucks a gallon almost,” a reporter asked Biden as he paid for food at a Los Angeles-based taco shop.
“Well, that’s always been the case here,” Biden replied.
Social media users rushed to criticize Biden for his claim about gas prices in The Golden State.
Biden later stated, because California has such a large Hispanic population, he said he meant 7 pesos, not dollars. When he was told that 7 pesos is only 35 cents, he said that proves that people who enter this country through the southern border are smart shoppers and knows how to get the best deals.
