Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) stopped by Hannity Monday night to discuss President Biden’s recent remarks on skyrocketing gas prices; Biden called the crisis “an incredible transition.” Cruz torched Biden for being out of touch and ceding his party to far-left climate extremists.
“When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said.
Cruz says Biden’s remarks show arrogant contempt for working Americans.
“Joe Biden isn’t unhappy about [high gas prices]. He’s in Tokyo, celebrating, saying, it’s ‘an incredible transition.’ Yeah, incredible for you, you fly a damn 747 where the taxpayers pay for your jet fuel. What Joe Biden is saying is, if you, at home, if you drive a pickup truck, to hell with you, you can’t drive your pickup truck. If you have a Suburban, you’ve got to get rid of that. If you’ve got a minivan, you’ve got to get rid of that. We’re all getting Toyota Priuses, although, he’s going to pitch it as, we’re all getting Teslas, but apparently, someone’s going to give us 100 grand to get one. It is the most arrogant contempt for working men and women in this country, and that is the view of the hard left, let them eat cake. John Kerry, as he flies his private jet all over the globe, says, gosh, you’ve got to give up your pickup truck. Because I care so much about the environment and it’s just — it’s cruel and messed up, and I think the American people are really seeing it.”
