Millionaire Ex-NFL Player Joins Chorus Of Tone Deaf Elites Okay Paying $20 At Pump If Means ‘No Trump’

Two-time Super Bowl champ turned Fox Sports NFL commentator Shannon Sharpe is happy for the rest of us to live with skyrocketing gas prices if that’s the price of no more mean tweets.

A challenge by another Twitter user, the former tight end for Denver Broncos was 53 years old and he tweeted his contempt for President Donald Trump.

After Sharpe was seemingly complaining about gas prices, he was asked, “Do you still hate Donald?”

“I’d rather pay 20 bucks a gallon than have Trump in office. Hope that answers your question,” Sharpe tweeted in response.

Celebrity elite lecture Every Day Americans about the cost of gas

Of course, we’d all like to never have to worry about the cost of gas. However, most people have to accept that gas prices aren’t going down and must make sure every penny is count.

Has anyone else noticed that it’s always the mega-rich elites who are preaching to us about how we should welcome high gas prices because it’s such a small sacrifice that WE (you know, because WE are all in the same boat) can make?

Case in point, Stephen Colbert called rising gas prices the cost of a “clean conscience”. The Late Night host joked that he’d even be okay with $15 per gallon before noting that he himself drives a Tesla.

Shannon Sharpe Roasted For Gas Prices Response

Sharpe’s nonchalance at paying an arm and a leg at the pump lit a firestorm on Twitter.

Buzz Patterson, a former congressional candidate and “carrier of the Nuke football” as USAF pilot, suggested maybe Sharpe has forgotten about the little people.

Those little people are the ones who shell out their hard-earned dollars for the NFL games that paid Sharpe’s salary.

The comedian Tim Young also had this thought.

Damani Felder of the The Right Brothers, however, wasn’t so polite when pointing out the tone-deaf nature of Sharpe’s statement.

Catturd was a viral personality who responded to his humor with trademark humor.

Shannon Sharpe Echoes Chorus Of Mainstream Media + Elites

Sharpe’s comment joins the chorus of liberals choosing to prop up and excuse the current administration while smearing the previous. It seems no cost borne on the American people is ever too high if it’s at the whim of a Democrat elite.

An op-ed in the Washington Post recently demonstrates this fact. Writer Jennifer Rubin writes a defense of Biden’s economic performance. Rubin, it should be noted, is also the author of “Resistance: How Women Saved Democracy from Donald Trump.”

Erin Perrine was the communications director for Trump’s campaign. She points out the absurdity in her opinion piece. Simply staggering is the double standard by which media compare Biden and his ilk to Trump.

“If it weren’t for the fact I can’t sing or dance, I could be the next Britney Spears.”

It seems no matter what failings or corruption are associated Biden (or his family) that it still comes down to “Democrats good, Orange man bad”.

Biden’s Blame Game

Inflation is a problem that the Biden administration takes to the extreme.

They’ve blamed inflation on everything from the delta variant in August 2021 to big box retail in December 2021.

So, of course, now the rising gas prices are Russia’s fault – Biden even called it “the Putin price hikes”. That almost sounds like a Trumpism that would’ve had the media clutching their pearls mere months ago.

Biden admits his policies caused inflation. Yet, he insists on denying responsibility and furiously shifting blame. 

Even Obama’s former top economic adviser, Larry Summers, called Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus stimulus package the “least responsible” economic policy in 40 years. Inflation would increase, but economists were not heeded.

Do you need an illustration?

US taxpayers will pay $3.8 million to support a care facility for captive birds. More precisely, because these birds live on Navy ground in California, the DOD will fund the project.

Shannon Sharpe is a billionaire NFL alum, and while she may not worry about gas prices much, most people do. The next election will bring back the memories of those with money problems.
