(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In a press conference earlier this week, Californian royalty Nancy Pelosi wondered aloud how gas prices could be so astronomically high in her home state, the Western Journal reported.
“It costs a lot of money in California. If you drive around in California and see the cost, you think, ‘how could this be?’” the 82-year-old, career politician questioned.
Yet the peasant class, which eats dinner at 5:30, will just have to suffer its fate.
In a shocking turn during the interview, Pelosi ruled out domestic fossil fuel production as a solution to the crisis, in the name of stopping climate change.

“We cannot allow the fossil fuel industry to use this as an excuse to reverse everything we’re doing to save the planet,” Pelosi said.
And despite President Joe Biden’s executive order halting all drilling permits on federal lands, the career politician then decided to blame–wait for it–Russian President Vladimir Putin for the spike in gas prices.
“We have the Putin price hike at the pump,” she said.
“The price of, of oil and gasoline — gas at the pump started going up when he started circling Ukraine … There is very interest in our caucus in stopping price gouging on the part of the — of the industry.”
Pelosi’s disdain for average Americans becomes more apparent with every passing week.
Last month, some of her opinions on the dining habits of non-elites were revealed.
Pelosi boasted about her social improvement when she married her coastal elite husband, who prefers to eat later, while she, being from Baltimore, likes to eat at peasant times.
“And to this day, my husband, Paul, who was born and raised in San Francisco – I was born and raised in Baltimore – to this day, he likes to dine at 8 and I like to eat at 5:30, like a peasant.”
