Biden’s 85-vehicle motorcade is a classic example of ‘limo liberals’ hypocrisy: Boothe

| News Today | abc News

Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe called climate change a “liberal limo problem” on “The Big Saturday Show” following President Joe Biden’s passage through Rome in an 85-vehicle motorcade ahead of the Conference of Nations United on Climate Change COP26 Sunday.

“The issue of climate change is a liberal limo issue,” Boothe said. “The Republican Party has become the party of American workers, and the Democrats are the party of the coastal elites. This question alone underscores this point.

Boothe also cited Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., as illegally parking her Tesla “$ 59,000” outside a Whole Foods store and US climate envoy John Kerry “exclusively fl[ying] private “as examples of” liberal limousine issues …[that] hurts hardworking Americans the most. ”

“If Democrats really cared about emissions, they would also look to things like natural gas, nuclear power,” she continued. “But they don’t care about these issues. They don’t care about the shows. All they care about is signaling virtue to their other liberal limo friends.”

Democrat Mario Procaccino coined the term “liberal limousine” in his ill-fated 1969 campaign for mayor of New York City. Author and journalist Tom Wolfe may have popularized the insult in his 1970 essay, “Radical Chic: That Party at Lenny’s”.

“This is hypocrisy … to the teeth,” said Sean Duffy, Fox News contributor.

“What brings me there,” he continued, is that “every one of the Democrats who” denigrated “energy leaders for producing oil and contributing to climate change in a hearing in the House earlier this week “fly on planes,… drive cars,… heat]their homes,… turn on the lights,” and so on.

“And they denigrate every one of the energy makers who actually produce the energies that make their lives run,” he said.

Panelist Jackie DeAngelis asked why Biden isn’t putting “more pressure” on China and India, “the world’s two biggest polluters” instead of taxing Americans to fund subsidies for electric vehicles and other climate change provisions in the Social Expenditure Bill.

“Why do we have to pay more to pay for the perils that are happening around the world when it comes to climate change, and everyone can just shrug their shoulders and look away?” she asked.

As DeAngelis noted, AAA’s national average price for a gallon of gasoline was $ 3.40 on Saturday, down from $ 2.14 just a year ago. Oil prices hit a seven-year high of around $ 85 a barrel “when they were below $ 50 the longest,” she said.
