Marble Halls & Silver Screens With Sarah Lee Ep. 130: The 'Biden Gaslight; Everything, Everywhere, All at Once; and Acting Presidential' Edition

It’s a strange thing to watch the Heard-Depp trial, with all the gaslighting and emotional blackmail, and realize that in some very serious and fundamental ways, the country is similar to an abused Johnny Depp and the Biden administration is our very own Amber Heard.


Because the emotional blackmail — winters of severe illness and death et al. — and the insistence that things are not what your lying eyes are telling you they are — the economy’s a-ok and gas shortages are Putin’s fault (not Biden’s war on the energy sector) — were both right out of the Heard playbook.

Amber Heard had this weird moment in a post-verdict interview where she tells anyone who will listen that they CAN’T look her in the eye and tell her the social media backlash to…well, her…was a “fair representation,” EVEN IF THE PERSON BELIEVES SHE’S A LIAR.

That, my friends, is a gaslight. “Despite what you think, I’m going to tell you what you can’t think.”

Unfortunately, our government engages in similar behavior on the regular. Take President Biden’s recent demand to the oil companies that they explain themselves while the price of gas reaches $5 and over.


President Joe Biden penned a letter to the heads of oil companies calling on them to take action on gas prices.

Mediaite obtained the letter showing the president asking the oil companies for answers on the issue.

“(T)he sharp rise in gasoline prices is not driven only by rising oil prices, but by an unprecedented disconnect between the price of oil and the price of gas,” Biden said in his letter to the heads of Marathon Petroleum Corp, Valero Energy Corp, ExxonMobil, Phillips 66, Chevron, BP, and Shell.

He added, “The last time the price of crude oil was about $120 per barrel, in March, the price of gas at the pump was $4.25 per gallon. Today, gas prices are 75 cents higher, and diesel prices are 90 cents higher.”

Biden acknowledged “that many factors contributed to the business decisions to reduce refinery capacity, which occurred before I took office. But at a time of war, refinery profit margins well above normal being passed directly onto American families are not acceptable.”

Everyone knows Biden promised to break the traditional energy sector on the campaign trail. Everyone knows he halted new drilling leases the moment he entered the Oval Office. Everyone knows his party has been pushing for significant climate legislation that would grow the size of government and take in new, enviro-related taxes during what’s looking more and more like a recession.


But Biden, like Heard, is telling the American people that, even though we all know those things, we can’t look him in the eye and tell him he’s being treated fairly by those dastardly oil companies.

And, like the once-popular Amber Heard, the once-popular Biden’s protestations are falling on deaf and tired ears.

I talk about it on today’s show, as well as offer thoughts on “Everything, Everywhere, All At Once” (trailer below). Some McConaughey is in there, too.

It’d be a lot cooler if you pushed play.
