At a political gathering he organized on Sunday at Sarah Lawrence College in New York for governor candidate Kathy Hochul, President Joe Biden yelled at a young woman in the crowd.
“No more drilling. There is no more drilling,” Biden yelled angrily at a young woman in the audience. “I haven’t formed any new drilling.”
“There are at least five more years of offshore drilling,” the woman shouted back.“ — in the Atlantic or the Pacific but in the Antarctic and off the gulf of New Mexico.”
“That was before I was president,” Biden replied. “We’re trying to work on that and get that done.”

In response to the nation’s energy problem, Biden announced late last week that he would start closing coal facilities across the nation.
“I was in Massachusetts about a month ago on the site of the largest old coal plant in America. Guess what? It cost them too much money,” At a gathering in Carlsbad, California, Biden stated. “No one is building new coal plants because they can’t rely on it, even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of the existence of the plant. So it’s going to become a wind generation.”
“And all they’re doing is, it’s going to save them a hell of a lot of money and using the same transmission line that they transmitted the coal-fired electric on, we’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America and having wind and solar power.”
Following criticism from Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), the head of the Senate Energy & Natural Resources Committee, the White House pulled back Biden’s comments.
On Sunday night, Stephen Miller, a former top adviser in the Trump White House, responded to Biden’s comments by stating, “No oil, no coal, no shale. Pennsylvania: a vote for Fetterman is a vote to send your state into a Great Depression.”
