For those who still believe that Joe Biden is fit for the White House, we ask that you please seek help – sobriety isn’t all that bad.
The former Vice President has been on a whirlwind tour of nonsense as of late, spouting a novel’s worth of absolute gobbledygook over the course of the last few months. His latest, which comes just a day after he told African American voters that they “ain’t black” if they vote for Donald Trump, is pure and utter gibberish.
Former Vice President and presumptive 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said in an interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box on Friday that as president he would move away from domestic fossil fuel production and then went on to call for a nationwide system to distribute coal.
“I would gradually move out of the position of relying on oil and gas, excuse me, on coal,” Biden said. “No one is going to build another coal fired plant. Period. No matter what the law is.”
Then came the most ludicrous part of the exchange, [emphasis added]:
When host Joe Kernen asked Biden how he would preserve the high-paying jobs in the oil and gas industry, Biden did not directly answer the question. He said:
We should become the net exporter of the new technology by investing the $40 billion in — the $400 billion I’m proposing in research and development for new ways to absorb carbon. New ways, you know, [to] make sure that we have a system nationwide that can transmit coal and wind across the country.
But we’re not investing in those things Joe. We’re not investing in any of it. They all create jobs.
And by the way, they don’t wind does not cause cancer. Windmills.
Someone really ought to tell Sleepy Joe about the railroad system, at least in terms of his coal concerns.
When it comes to transporting wind, however, Joe’s on his own there.
