President Joe Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm appeared today at the White House’s daily press briefing to address the current gas shortages that are gripping parts of the nation.
In a clip that was shared by Newsbusters’ Curtis Houck, Granholm is asked how the shortages “will speed up the efforts… to move in a more renewable direction?”
“Yeah I mean, we are obviously all in on making sure that we meet the president’s goals of getting to 100% clean electricity by 2035 and net zero carbon emissions by 2050,” Granholm responded with a smile.
Granholm then flippantly added, with a laugh, “If you drive an electric car, this would not be affecting you, clearly.”
Houck said of the exchange, “Absolutely ghoulish. Never let a crisis go to waste!”
