3:09 am
last. >> lawrence: will be checking in and i have a ton of questions. so president biden had a tweet this past weekend that prompted a series of responses from america's richest individuals to the communist party of china. here's a tweet that's at the world in response beauties set my message to the company's running gas stations and setting prices at the pump. bring down the price you're charging at the pump to reflect the cost are paying for the product and do it now. telling the united states oil and gas producers it's your fault come you're couching, bring down your prices. to that the oil and gas association responded. speak to you before that the communist party basically tweeted out inside you're right, capitalism is exploitative,
3:10 am
finally you're catching on joe biden. finally the oil and gas association responded in a very kind of humorous way thing working on it, mr. president. in the meantime have a happy foursome please make sure the white house intern who posts for this tweet registers for econ 101. doesn't understand supply and demand. the fact that lawrence, he shuts on the keystone play play and refused to give more leases for gas. he is pressuring banks not the finance oil and gas and fossil fuel projects into the future. i just day one of his presidency but the moment he was elected he
3:11 am
saw gas prices started to go up as a result of this and policy after policy is going after the oil and gas companies. they made it very clear that precious, funny the president of the united states wants them to do something about it right now, but during the entire time these are the implications of this, he did nothing to help. this prompted a response from jeff bezos. this is what he set out set outcome inflation is far too important of a problem for the white house to keep making statements like this. i hope to prize the glycerol for jeff bezos. we all know that he hounds "the washington post." we know they were in the tank of the biden administration at the time. i just like to know come he's not the only progressive that's going against the biden administration commit thinks must be getting really bad for
3:12 am
them to start going after not the president just behind the scenes, but the public. >> the world's richest individuals have also something like $60 billion to's economy year. do you hear the oil and gas association has you pointed out, saying you're feeling basic understanding of economics. if your jeff bezos actually sings another option year and that's banking on the administration banking on us feeling economics and buying their lies of misdirection. jeff bezos saying the biden administration after trying for misdirection and trying to distract. john kirby the nfc coordinator for strategic communications was asked about the biden administration putting the shell game of attention. watch. speak of misdirection is a serious allegation from a business mogul of weapons to be the owner of "the washington post." >> anybody that knows
3:13 am
president biden says he has played in spoken and tells you exactly what is thinking in terms that everybody can understand. i think we obviously take great exception that this is somehow misdirection. the president of the speaking honestly with the american people about what he's trying to do to bring the prices down. >> i have to admit apple kirby is much better than coren at rick explaining things. we cannot understand the president, we don't understand which direction, he lies lie after lie not just from the podium but through tweet studies not even typing. there's -- jeff bezos pointed to a basic misunderstanding of how the market works. it's peter there's a bit of truth in what he said. he said occasionally joe biden slips and tells the truth and they did that what he said this is the great transition to green energy. that was true, this is a deliberate, intentional raising of gas prices through policies and regulations in order to
3:14 am
transition people to green energy. if he says he wants to play potent because that was originally, then he blamed gas and oil. he knew that russia -- that this war in russia would cause all kinds of problems. not just oil and gas, but that ukraine and russia were the bread basket of the world and that if you put this area or region into a big long war that it would disrupt the food supply in the world really. so there's a lot of things that he could have looked around the corner and saw her, starting with the keystone pipeline, all the way up to the war with russia i'd ukraine, that he is really at the center of. >> i would say being unscripted, rambling, and unpredictable as the same thing as being plainspoken. >> rachel: fair enough. now to the usfl come with the first coming to a dramatic and last night with the birmingham

3:24 am
which show the weights far outweigh cancellation goods were no more than 300 flights delay more than hundred canceled nationwide. those numbers could go up to the morning. the last several weeks millions of people been dealing with other delays or cancellations paid airlines a staffing shortages go up or whether all forcing changes but pressure is building of the biden administration to mentor passengers are not shortchanged. over the weekend transportation secretary pete buttigieg tweet about some travel advice saying sometimes an airline's can offer you .2 miles we wanted to let people know they can also get a cash refund when their flight is canceled. they need to weigh whether or not it's worth having the money or miles to putting what they are valuing. we also heard from congresswoman who said it's pete buttigieg the need to get its act together. he says the secretary needs to make it clear that he has the authority to go after the airlines for unfair and deceptive practices. he needs to lay out the framework for what the consequences will be for canceled flights, understaffing, and work misrepresentation to passengers. vermont senator bernie
3:25 am
bernie sanders going further. he wants the department of transportation to impose a number of new regulations including requiring airlines re-issue refunds properly for a bit of delay and face fines for not properly demand planning act current staffing. one thing the government is not controlling as the rising price of airfare is up 45% from 2019. some airlines have already scaled back their late scouts or schedule to ensure they have enough staffing. that also means fewer seats are for sale. i did check the free cookies in the main cabin are still available free of charge. >> be real now. are you really excited about that when they come around without these days? >> i take as many as we can. i grabbed them and put them in my bag and ate them for like six days afterwards days afterwards. >> they are tasty. i will give you that they are tasty but it feels so meager. you like this is what i get? >> thanks, mark.

>> rachel: how do guys like your transportation secretary acting more like a customer service agent that the airline? >> think he's coming for kurt knutson's job. now they're going to give you more than halftime smile but you can be going for a refund. there's something more that the secretary of transportation can be doing and i think even democrats have pointed out are starting to acknowledge that. this is yet another breakdown. and not just of supply chains but the travel team when you combine it with gas prices. >> rachel: do you really like -- i disagree with both of them. i mean i look at what pete buttigieg has done and what bernie sanders and the representatives in california, all three of those people are responsible for the staffing issues at these airlines are facing. they had all these mandates, vaccine, mask mandates, they had lockdowns, all of this impacted the airline and may people

retire early, or get fired. then they go we are so mad at you because you have staffing issues. were going to come after you. they are also complaining, and i'm with bernie sanders on this, he went after it said what about the $54 billion would give you. >> lawrence: we gave them all the money. >> rachel: where is the teachers union money back i want all the money back. >> lawrence: they need to get something some of us out of under control. this is nonsense. about a third of the flights have been canceled. i mean there is a simple solution to this, to start my putting those times up there. just cancel a third of the flights and link of a specialist we know what were going to get. but all the delays come the air traffic control, the flight attendants, it's a big mess and it's another scandal in the biden administration. they had everything under control, the adults are back can't even manage the airlines

"my message to the company's running gas stations in setting prices at the pump is simple: this is the time of war and global peril. bring down the price to reflect the cost you are paying for the product and do it now." rachel and lawrence, this has drawn the attention of jeff bezos', the chinese communist party, and now the u.s. oil and gas association. >> lawrence: i guess the big question is, before we get into
5:12 am
the response for this, we know from intelligence and all that that the biden administration knew that the war was coming. yet, he still tried to crush the oil and gas industry. if this is truly a time of war, why did he put all these regulations in place knowing full well this was going to happen? we know obviously that the price of oil and gas was going up the moment he was elected as president, and of course it's continued to go up. it wasn't just when the war started. >> rachel: you are absolutely right about that. you make such a great point, that when you go to war with russia, a great producer, and you limit your own gas and oil production over the last year, you're going to have a problem with gas and oil, which also impacts food and everything else we are seeing that we value. it's not just what's happening at the pump. here is what the u.s. oil and gas association had to say. by the way, this is very cheeky
5:13 am
of them. this was a treat. "working on it, mr. president. in the meantime, have a happy fourth and please make sure the white house intern who posted this tweet registered for econ 101 for the fall semester." noting that this is a complete misunderstanding or ignorance of how supply and demand works in a market economy. >> will: ignorance of supply and demand or an attempt to deflect and help the american public is ignorant on econ 101. that's what jeff bezos pointed out. "inflation is far too much of a problem for the light has to keep making statements like this. it's either straight-ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics." so i think when you put into context first blaming vladimir putin and now oil and gas companies directly, it is willful ignorance. it is a willful ignorance of econ 101, which in turn is an
5:14 am
attempt to misdirect everyone on the source of these troubles. >> and also to do nothing about it. he saw those little fingers at the gas pumps now that say he did this to the price of gas. and he is saying, it's them. the message to the american people is very clear. me, joe biden, i'm not going to do anything about it. i'm not going to change my policy. the american people aren't stupid. you're right, poll after poll shows the american people are blaming joe biden and rightfully so for inflation and the price of gas. and this is a sign that they're not going to change course. because that's what people do, politicians should do. good politicians. don't expect to be perfect, but when you realize you're hurting people, hurting families, people on fixed incomes, low income, for people who can put food on the table and can't send their kids to camp, can't live the
5:15 am
lives they were living just a year or two ago under the trump administration, i have to do is change back the policies. we know it worked. >> lawrence: i know we've got to run. i will also make this point. go around the country as you guys do. also the barbershop is the center of politics for black culture. when the diners on the barbershop are both saying the same thing, you know we are in trouble. you know the biden administration is in trouble. >> rachel: and the most to satisfy group in america, this is a group that you are winning by 20 something points in the last election. that's not a sign. >> lawrence: exactly right. >> will: let's get it carley shimkus has additional headlines with this morning. >> some more news, starting with this. a 20-year-old man in los angeles is being held on $5,000 bail accused of firing a gun shot into the riverside police station last month. surveillance video shows a man driving into the police station parking lot and then firing a single round through the window before speeding away. cameras cut the license plate
