Democrats have made a tradition of spurning traditions.
But the Biden White House’s top Turkey is wishing they’d shunned one more tradition this year.
Joe Biden did his best to mar annual White House tradition of pardoning two turkeys
Fox News reports President Joe Biden pardoned turkeys named “Chocolate” and “Chip” that were donated by the National Turkey Federation during Monday’s annual White House event.
But new inflation records threatened dark clouds over the annual event as Americans see prices on nearly everything get more expensive on President Joe Biden’s watch.
Last month, thanks to the Biden Economy and runway Bidenflation, the 2022 Halloween was the most expensive ever for American families wishing to commemorate the occasion with candy, costumes and scary parties.
Now, it’s that turkey time of the year.
And once again, it’s going to be the most expensive ever, thanks to President Joe Biden’s economic policies.
Americans looking to travel this Thanksgiving will be paying the highest gas prices ever for the traditional November Holiday.
Biden’s new record, breaks the old one set under Barack Obama.
According to GasBuddy the projected average price at the pump on Thanksgiving Day will be $3.68.
GasBuddy reports that’s nearly 30¢ higher than last year, and over 20¢ higher than the previous record of $3.44 set in 2012 when Biden’s old boss, then-President Obama was in the Oval Office.
“That won’t slow many down, with 20% more Americans planning to hit the road this year,” the GasBuddy report read.
According to GasBuddy, 32% percent of Americans traveled for the fall Holiday in 2021, compared to 38% projected for this year.
If you’re driving to a dinner hosted by someone else, the higher price at the pump may be worth it.
Because the cost of cooking a turkey dinner for the family this year is through the roof – and again, another record President Biden would rather not own.
The current most expensive year to host a Thanksgiving dinner is 2021 – President Biden’s first Thanksgiving as Commander-in-Chief.
However, that’s about to change, as Biden is on the verge of breaking his own embarrassing record.
Every year, the American Farm Bureau breaks down the average cost of a Thanksgiving feast, looking at the price of turkey, stuffing, potatoes, dinner rolls, cranberries and pumpkin pie.
Last year, that turkey dinner cost the average American family $53.31 – a 14% increase from former President Donald Trump’s final year in the White House.
While the Farm Bureau has yet to release its estimate for this year, economists are anticipating this year’s supper will cost Americans 13.5% more than it did last year – an average of $60.25 per family meal.
That $60.25 could cost someone in the family a Black Friday Christmas Present under the tree this year.
Thanks to Biden, this Thanksgiving is shaping up to be the most expensive on record.
Sweet Potatoes: +11%
Russet Potatoes: +23%
Green Beans: +25%
Pumpkin Pie Mix: +18%
Pie Shells: +26%
Whipping Cream: +26%

And it’s not hard to see why many American workers are considering visiting that Colonel from Kentucky instead of slaving over a hot stove this Thanksgiving.
Every staple item of a Thanksgiving dinner is up dramatically from 2021’s record prices, including: Turkey +21%, Stuffing +69%, Rolls +22%, Sweet Potatoes +11%, Russet Potatoes +23%, Green Beans +25%, Peas +23%, Pumpkin Pie Mix +18%, Pie Shells +26%, Whipping Cream +26%, Milk +16%, eggs +42%, butter and margarine +34% — and for those families that decide to go with a pig in place of a bird, Ham +7%.
Those increases are a far cry from July of 2021, when the Biden administration tried taking credit for a whopping 16-cent saving for an entire Independence Day barbeque celebration.
Planning a cookout this year? Ketchup on the news. According to the Farm Bureau, the cost of a 4th of July BBQ is down from last year. It’s a fact you must-hear(d). Hot dog, the Biden economic plan is working. And that’s something we can all relish. pic.twitter.com/7h9qLauIbC

Of course, much like Thanksgiving and Halloween this year, the 2022 4th of July costs more than negated any 2021 savings – jumping up a full $10.
That’s 63-times more than the savings from 2021 compared to Independence Day 2020.
Much like everything else under Joe Biden’s watch, the Holidays are simply unaffordable for most Americans with Leftists in charge.
