OK, a lot of Americans are ranting about Biden’s hypocrisy over taking Airforce 1, then a large cavalcade of Full-sized SUVs to go to Massachusetts in order to deliver a speech in which he declared climate change an emergency. And promised/threatened to use executive action to fight climate change as any sort of legislation on the matter appears extremely unlikely to happen.
To these complaints I’m forced to say, “Chill out, Brothers and Sisters.” Biden, just like all the legitimately elected Presidents, has to take Airforce 1 for trips of this distance and has to travel overland in a large, armored, very heavy and gas-guzzling SUV along with a decent sized convoy of similar vehicle carrying his assign entourage and technicians, assistants, and security personnel. No President gets any real choice in this.
Yes, it’s extremely ironic. No, it isn’t worth ranting over. Nor is it hypocrisy, since he had no say in the matter and those that did really don’t give a fat, flying fuck about anything except their mission objective of not letting the POTUS get killed.
