Fox News host Sean Hannity has berated Vice President Kamala Harris after she encouraged Americans to buy electric cars amid soaring gas and oil prices.
“If she’s ever president, we’re deeply Schiff,” Hannity told viewers Tuesday.
Harris joined Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg at an event marking the first anniversary of the US $1.9 trillion bailout law this week, where she avoided any mention of crippling gas prices .

Instead, Harris asked his audience to “imagine a future” without the need for oil and gas.
“Imagine a future, the freight trucks that deliver bread and milk to our grocery store shelves and the buses that take children to school and parents to work. Imagine all the heavy vehicles that maintain our lines of strong supplies and allow our economy to grow. Imagine them producing zero emissions. Well, you all imagined it,” she said.
“That’s why we’re here today,” Harris added. “Because we have the ability to see what can be unloaded from what has been, and then make the possible actually happen.”

Hannity joined the chorus of critics who slammed Harris for what they called ‘tone-deaf’ remarks as Americans suffer from soaring prices at the pumps, which are likely to be exacerbated by the invasion of the Ukraine by Russia.
“Just go out and buy yourself a brand new $60,000 EV from your local dealership,” Hannity joked, noting that it felt “like I’m back in premiere” every time she uttered a speech.
Turning his attention to President Biden, the Fox News host lambasted the president for telling a reporter that he “can’t do much right now” about soaring gas prices while laying the blame on Russia.

“President Trump warned us that gas prices would skyrocket under Biden, and guess what? It’s happening,” Hannity said. “Here at home, gas prices are exploding. Everything you buy in every story you go to, more expensive. We’re now over 40 years with inflation. Obviously the border is an accident of train, the economy is a train wreck. The Americans are still trapped in Afghanistan. It’s an unforgivable train wreck.

Speaking directly to Democrats, Hannity continued, “Joe Biden is in steep cognitive decline, but congratulations Democrats. That means more mean tweets. Hope it’s worth it for you.”
