During a last-minute rally for struggling New York Governor Kath Hochul, President Joe Biden get irritated with a climate activist after his speech; Biden started yelling “no more drilling.”
The president spoke at Sarah Lawrence College in Yonkers, touting his achievements in office and lambasting Republicans, particularly Hochul’s rival, Rep. Lee Zeldin, Fox News reports.
“No more drilling,” Biden said.
After the protester continued to shout, Biden shot back, sounding annoyed: “There is no more drilling. I haven’t formed any new drilling.”
From Fox Business:
The protester could then be heard making objections to “offshore drilling” in the Antarctic and the Gulf of Mexico.
“That was before I was president. We’re trying to work on that to get that done,” Biden responded.
The comments amounted to a doubling down of Biden’s climate agenda ahead on the eve of the midterms despite evidence that it has, in part, contributed to a rise in gasoline prices.
