Dave Rubin of “The Rubin Report” talks about Elon Musk becoming the largest stakeholder in Twitter, Nancy Pelosi being against US energy independence, Jen Psaki getting frustrated with the press, Kamala Harris showing her disdain for rural voters, and Tulsi Gabbard debunking Democrats talking points on the don't say gay bill. First, Dave discusses the breaking news that Elon Musk has purchased 9.2% of Twitter stock to become the largest shareholder in the company. Can Twitter be changed to support free speech? Next, clips of Nancy Pelosi, Pete Buttigieg, and Joe Biden revealing how out of touch Democrats are with Americans suffering from rising gas prices. Pelosi refuses to let high gas prices increase any US oil production, while Buttigieg will seek energy independence only if it involves renewable energy, clueless to the fact that we would then become dependent on foreign lithium mining. Biden bragged about the $80 a month that people would save if they switch to an EV oblivious to the fact that most Americans can’t afford electric cars. Next, a clip of Jen Psaki having her “Putin price hike” talking point debunked in real time by the simple fact that gas prices were rising before Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. The press didn’t let up either, grilling her on the conflict of interest for her new MSNBC job. Psaki also decided to abandon science and change the word woman to “pregnant people”. Next, some clips highlighting how out of touch Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, and Joe Biden are on issues of race in America. Finally, a clip of Tulsi Gabbard, one of the few remaining moderate democrats, succinctly defending Florida’s parental rights in education law by debunking the insane don't say gay talking points of her fellow Democrats and discussing the proper place of sex education in America’s public schools.
