If you want a liberal’s argument to come unraveled, all you have to do is listen to Tucker Carlson. Lately, he’s been taking on the subject of the Pairs Agreement. It took him 90 seconds to dismantle the outrage over Trump’s decision to withdraw from the agreement.
Someone, get this man a medal! That’s got to be a record!
Liberals all over the country are up in arms (not literal arms, that would mean they supported the Second Amendment, and they most certainly don’t) about the President’s decision.
Many of those expressing their outrage are A-listed Hollywood actors and billionaire businessmen that love to fly around in their private jets. That’s great for the environment…
Carlson explained that those who are upset with Trump have not “bothered to explain what’s actually in” the Paris agreement. Despite this, “they assure us that that deal is the solution to the single most gravest threat this planet has ever faced: rising levels of atmospheric CO2.”
Maybe they need to read up on how jets work…
“They’re dead serious about that. You can tell by the outraged looks on their faces and the purple rhetoric. But hold on for a minute. Can we really be sure that these people take carbon emissions seriously?”
To answer that question, he said his team did a little comparison between how these “environmentalists” say to live and how they actually live.
On the chopping block, billionaire businessmen Richard Branson, Elon Musk and Bill Gates. And we can’t forget about superstars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Hillary Clinton.
Oh, this is going to be good.
“Branson says fossil fuels are ‘dangerous’ and he calls Trump’s decision ‘America first, Earth last.’ Now on the other hand, Branson owes a Desault Falcon 50EX private jet and it burns more fuel on a single flight to Maui than you’re gonna go through in a lifetime of trips to the shore.
“Elon Musk, meanwhile, is mad about global warming too. Yet he flies around in a Gulfstream G6500ER. Bill Gates says he’s ‘deeply concerned’ yet he still commutes in a $62 million bombardier BD700 global express. Can you imagine the gas mileage that gets?
“Leonardo DiCaprio says Trump’s move threatens the ‘livability of our planet’ and yet DiCaprio flew a private jet 4,000 miles from Cannes, France, to New York to accept a climate award — and then flew back privately.
“Hillary Clinton tweeted that Trump’s pullout was a ‘historic mistake that leaves American workers and families behind.’ And yet, speaking of workers and their families, there probably weren’t a lot of those onboard last year when Hillary used a private jet to fly 20 miles from Martha’s Vineyard to Nantucket for a fundraiser.”
Don’t you love the hypocrisy?
