I’ll admit, when I first saw the video of Kyle Rittenhouse posted below, I felt bad laughing. On one hand, it’s hilarious and perfectly sums up what’s going on in America right now. On the other, I felt bad laughing at a video that involved Kyle crying when on the witness stand, as that felt wrong.
But then, I looked a bit closer and…KYLE was the one who posted it. So, concerns out of the way, I laughed so hard it hurt. Here’s the amazing video:
No, it’s not Lemon Heads.. it’s the burning hole in my pocket thanks to a Joe Biden presidency.. 😂😂

The “Lemon Heads” part is a nod to LeBron James, the vapid, far-left basketball player that insulted Kyle back when the original video of him crying came out, saying:
What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court. 🤣🤣🤣

Regardless of what King James the Vapid thinks, Doesn’t it just perfectly sum up what getting gas in America feels like? No one wants to fill up; the cost of doing so is heart-wrenching and a major gut check, not to mention painful on the wallet.
So, left between crying about the ruinously high price like Kyle in the video or pasting one of those “I did that” stickers of Biden pointing at the price, many Americans can identify quite strongly with this video.
Biden’s allies, of course, will claim that the higher gas prices aren’t his fault. As CNN wrote back in June of 2021, for instance:
It’s misleading to blame the President for high gas prices, especially since one of the biggest reasons behind the surge is that the US economy is starting back up — which is hardly bad news for a president who’s been in office for 5 months. Supply chains are complex and if any one thing could be singled out for the increase in gas prices it’s the pandemic, which caused the global production of oil — and many other goods — to decrease last year as demand cratered. Following the removal of pandemic-related restrictions, supply has not caught up with the new demand as the economy begins to recover and people get back on the road, experts told CNN.
But, still, rightly or wrongly, many Americans will blame Biden for the crisis, as FiveThirtyEight reported:
Higher gas prices have also been shown to drag down presidential approval. As I wrote back in December, overall inflation has been associated with several periods of downturn in presidential approval, and research has also found that higher gas prices typically have a significant and negative effect on presidents’ approval ratings.
So, Americans of all stripes will have a nice laugh at Biden’s expense, even if CNN and other organizations they shouldn’t, with a major stimulant for that laugh being the hilarious video shared by Kyle, one that we can all identify with whenever it’s time to head to the local gas station and fill up.
