“Climate change poses an existential threat to our communities, economy, national security and environment,” Joe Biden says. “Our plan for a Clean Energy Revolution & Environmental Justice will address the climate emergency & protect our communities for generations to come,” he wrote on Facebook in June.
But, of course, the former vice president and one-time frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination doesn’t mean him.
Biden and his campaign have blown more than $924,000 on private jets during their campaign, which is just five months old.
“Among his biggest expenses were $924,000 spent on EJCR LLC Dba Advanced Aviation Team, a company that offers private jet charter services, Federal Election Commission data shows,” the New York Post reports.
“That figure represents about one out of every 16 bucks his campaign raised — after taking in about $15.7 million and spending $17.6 million during that same period, The Daily Beast noted.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson mocked the hypocrisy.
“Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is in lusitania territory. He is still traveling in style. According to recent disclosures, Biden’s campaign spent more than $900,000 on private jets just in the third quarter of this year,” Carlson said. “You can hardly blame Joe Biden. He has a message he’s desperate to disseminate as far and wide as he can. The message? We much confront the existential threat of global warming.”
