Team Biden has been pushing electric cars hard. Pete Buttigieg tells Americans frustrated by high gas prices to buy an electric car because the “fuel” for those costs less, as if those who can’t afford $5 gas can buy a $40,000 or more car.
His energy secretary said much the same thing back in May of 2021, saying that higher gas prices don’t hurt those with electric cars:

Biden too has commented on the preceived superiority and efficacy of electric cars, saying:
“We’ll build out the first-ever national network of 500,000 electric vehicle charging stations all across the country.
So, when you buy an electric vehicle, and you get credit for buying it — when you buy an electric vehicle, you can go all the way across America on a single tank of gas, figuratively speaking. It’s not gas; you plug it in. Five hundred thousand of them — these stations along the way.”
So, given that he and his team is pushing electric cars so heavily, does Biden himself even own one? Is he rolling around in an electric limo or zipping around Delaware in a Tesla during his frequent trips home?
Doocy decided to ask, and she was triggered. Very triggered. Watch that here:

As you can hear, Doocy asks a simple question, saying “You guys are pushing electric vehicles today. This is a President who always talks about the power of our example. Does he own an electric vehicle?”
All it required was a “yes” or a “no.” Brandon either owns the car he wants peasants to own or not, giving an answer shouldn’t be so difficult.
But, apparently, it was to Psaki. She snapped back, saying “Presidents of the United States don’t do a lot of driving.”
So, Doocy, never one to let her off the hook easily, followed up by pointing out that Biden does drive some, saying “He has posted videos where he’s revving the engine of his Corvette in Wilmington. He owns cars.”
With that, Psaki sensed an opportunity to dodge the question with an okay-sounding answer, so she did so, saying “And he also has driven electric vehicles as President, as — to give a model to the rest of the country.”
Doocy, seemingly knowing the answer and still pressing, followed up by pressing Ms. Circle Back to answer his question, again asking “Does he own one?”
Ending the back-and-forth with a non-answer, Psaki said:
I think the President’s record on this is clear, Peter. Presidents of the United States — current and when they are no longer — typically are not doing a lot of driving.
So, apparently, he doesn’t own one. If he did, Psaki almost certainly would have gleefully said that he owns one because he cares about the enviorment.
But she didn’t. So, either Biden has kept his “green” lifestyle hidden from her, she doesn’t want to say what he owns, or Biden doesn’t practice what he preaches. Shocker, leftists never act like hypocrites!
