'There's an abundance of turkeys available and they're about $1 more': Psaki's defense when asked if Biden is sending the wrong message to middle America with a weekend at a billionaire's Nantucket compound

White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday defended President Joe Biden's decision to spend the Thanksgiving on Nantucket, saying food prices weren't that high and everyone should spend the holiday with loved ones.

The president has come under fire for heading to the posh island off the coast of Massachusetts to spend the rest of the week at the home of billionaire Carlyle group co-founder David Rubenstein.

Biden ran for president as a symbol and representative of the middle class. The Biden family has been spending Thanksgiving on the island nearly every year since 1975, including when he was vice president.
