Watch the shocking moment when Rep. Rashida Tlaib loses control and launches a furious attack on President Biden’s decision to fast-track a natural gas pipeline. Her explosive rant exposes her double standards and hypocrisy on climate change.
Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib of Michigan unleashed a fiery tirade against the Biden administration’s fast-tracking of the Mountain Valley Pipeline, a natural gas infrastructure project spanning 300 miles through West Virginia. Tlaib’s meltdown occurred during a protest following the pipeline’s approval as part of a debt ceiling deal between Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy.
In a video posted on Twitter, Tlaib can be heard shouting, “What the hell does a pipeline have to do with reducing the deficit?! It’s bullshit! It’s bullshit! Bullshit! I call bullshit!” Tlaib’s outburst reflects her complete misunderstanding of the project’s economic and energy significance. The Mountain Valley Pipeline will not only create thousands of jobs but also contribute to America’s energy independence, reducing reliance on foreign sources.
Tlaib’s rage continued as she condemned conservatives who pointed out China and India’s heavy reliance on coal for electricity generation. Dismissing their concerns, she exclaimed, “You got right-wing people saying, ‘Well, China got this all the time and India and these other…’ What are you talking about?! That is not how you’re supposed to be talking about it!” Tlaib’s refusal to acknowledge the global energy landscape undermines her credibility on environmental issues.
Meanwhile, Climate Defiance disrupted a celebratory event attended by West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, who had expressed support for the pipeline’s approval. The radical group’s actions highlight their extreme tactics to obstruct critical infrastructure projects that are crucial for America’s energy security.
The Mountain Valley Pipeline, with an estimated cost of $6.6 billion, has faced years of delays due to extensive environmental reviews. However, its construction is necessary to enhance domestic energy production, create jobs, and boost economic growth in the region. The pipeline will transport natural gas, a cleaner-burning fossil fuel, benefiting both consumers and the environment.
Tlaib’s meltdown is not just an isolated incident but emblematic of the radical left’s opposition to sensible energy solutions. Their agenda prioritizes virtue signaling over practicality, ignoring the needs of hardworking Americans and jeopardizing the nation’s energy security.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s explosive meltdown over the Mountain Valley Pipeline exposes her hypocrisy and extreme agenda. While she shouts “bullshit,” the American people recognize the importance of energy infrastructure projects like this one. It’s time for lawmakers to prioritize the needs of their constituents over radical ideologies.
