White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki issued a remarkably rude response to a reporter who asked when workers on the canceled Keystone XL pipeline could expect to receive those mythical “green jobs” promised by President Biden.
An estimated 11,000 jobs are expected to be lost as a result of Biden’s decision to cancel the pipeline on his first day as President via executive order. Roughly 1,000 workers in South Dakota were immediately affected by the decision. Biden promised to create good-paying union jobs in the green energy sector in response to criticism.
“Where is it that they can go for their green job?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked Psaki at her Monday afternoon press briefing.
“That is something the administration has promised and there is now a gap so I’m just curious when that happens, when those people can count on that?” Doocy added.
“Well, I’d certainly welcome you to present your data of all the thousands and thousands of people who won’t be getting a green job,” Psaki rudely replied. “Maybe next time you’re here you can present that.”
“But you said they will be getting green jobs. I’m just asking when that happens?” Doocy replied, noting a report by the Laborers’ International Union of North America that found 1,000 union jobs on the Keystone project would be lost immediately.
Another 10,000 construction jobs expected to be created by the project have also been nixed by Biden’s decision, according to the New York Post.
Here’s the exchange between Fox News reporter Peter Doocy and the increasingly unlikable Psaki:
We can answer Doocy’s question since Jen Psaki finds herself unable to do so. Workers can expect jobs when the American voters work through their ideological stupor and put a pro-American job creator back in the Oval Office.
