Watters: the release of Biden’s strategic oil reserve “like bringing 2 Triscuits to Thanksgiving dinner”

| Today Headlines | News Today

President Biden was only talking more about inflation and the oil price crisis when he ordered the release of 50 million barrels of oil from the United States Strategic Petroleum Reserve, Jesse Watters said on Tuesday on “The Five”.

While 50 million barrels may seem like a large amount of this precious commodity, the nation will be using it in about 2.5 days, Watters said.

“Joe doesn’t sound very worried, does he?” He wants higher prices – I guess he said it makes it easier to go green [energy]”he said.” He doesn’t want to pay a political price, so they’re doing the silly release, which is nothing. “

“It’s like your mom asks you to bring her something for Thanksgiving and you show up with two Triscuits.” What will it do? We’re not going anywhere.

Watters suggested that OPEC had ignored Biden’s calls for more foreign production when the president could resolve the crisis by simply reverting to domestic drilling on federal lands in Alaska as President Trump argued, and to reinstate the project. of Keystone XL pipeline between Alberta, Canada and the Gulf Coast.

Host Dana Perino added that Biden’s MPs did not fare much better in press questions on Tuesday, with Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm responding that she did not know how much oil the United States consume per day.

“You probably should know that if you’re the Secretary of Energy,” Perino said.

“Joe Biden spoke about how long he was in Washington and his experience [but] any president who tries to exploit the strategic oil reserve is not really in an oil emergency. It’s like a gnat on an elephant, ”she said.

Perino said Biden is likely hoping this latest move will make the crisis go away during and after the holiday weekend.
