John Kerry, the Biden administration's climate envoy, has been roasted by Republicans for his misleading statements about his private jet use.
In a recent interview, Kerry claimed that he had only flown on a private jet once since becoming climate envoy. However, flight records show that he has actually flown on private jets multiple times, including to Aspen, Colorado, for a vacation.
Kerry's hypocrisy has been met with widespread criticism from Republicans. “John Kerry is a climate hypocrite,” said Republican National Committee Chairman Ronna McDaniel. “He lectures Americans about the need to reduce their carbon footprint, while he flies around on private jets.”
McDaniel's comments were echoed by other Republicans, who accused Kerry of “double standards” and “greenwashing.” “Kerry is the poster child for climate hypocrisy,” said Republican Senator Lindsey Graham. “He's all talk and no action.”
The criticism of Kerry's private jet use is just the latest example of Democrats' hypocrisy on climate change. Democrats have long preached about the need to reduce carbon emissions, but they have been unwilling to make any personal sacrifices to achieve this goal.
For example, President Biden has flown on Air Force One more than any other president in history. And Vice President Kamala Harris has flown on private jets multiple times.
The Democrats' hypocrisy on climate change is a major problem. It undermines their credibility and makes it difficult for them to convince Americans to take action on climate change.

During the hearing – hosted Thursday by the House Foreign Affairs Committee – Rep. Cory Mills, R-Fla., confronted Kerry about his past private jet use in light of the top administration official's efforts to fight climate change. Kerry said his purported use of a private jet is “one of the most outrageously persistent lies that I hear,” adding that he doesn't own a jet and has never “personally” owned a jet.
“Bottom line is that the climate czar is showing a climate hypocrisy when him and his family left a 325 metric ton carbon footprint from their private jet,” Mills told Fox News Digital after the hearing. “Meanwhile, Kerry expects the average American to be carbon-neutral and to buy things like unreliable EVs they can’t afford.”
“Once again, it’s the Democrats' standard of hypocrisy to tell Americans how to live their lives while they do the opposite,” Mills continued.
