Tapping the Strategic Petroleum Reserve: “A really futile and stupid gesture”

I do understand that humans are, not the most rational beings most of the time. I know that humans can be incredibly shallow and outright dumb even when their walls are full of the most prestigious degrees. As a negotiator, I am aware of stratagems and lies to accomplish what cannot be accomplished by more honest means. So I should not be shocked by any of this and yet – it is beyond me how one person can do things without even being questioned for it when someone else would be publicly slaughtered for the exact same thing supposing it happened.
