Democratic challenger Joe Biden introduced that Gaga might seem with him Monday nighttime at a power-in rally in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a state important to clinching victory on November three.
Trump’s team answered right away, slamming the joint appearance.
“Nothing exposes Joe Biden’s disdain for the forgotten running ladies and men of Pennsylvania like campaigning with anti-fracking activist Lady Gaga,” campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement posted to Twitter.
“This desperate effort to drum up enthusiasm for his lackluster candidacy is actually a pointy stick in the attention for six hundred,000 Pennsylvanians who paintings in the fracking industry,” Murtaugh stated, including that Biden has “repeatedly promised left-wing activists” he’s going to quit fracking should he take office.
Fracking — fuel and oil extraction from deep underground rock using an injection of water and chemical substances — boomed in the mid-2000s thanks to new technology.
By 2014, it made the US the arena’s largest oil and gas manufacturer.
But its prices are high: the drilling triggers earthquakes, even as research hyperlinks its air emissions and water infection to myriad health problems. It also contributes to international warming when methane leaks out from drilling wells and will become a fairly robust greenhouse fuel.
Biden favors prohibiting new fracking on public lands and transitioning the united states to renewables, however has said he would now not dispose of fracking entirely.
Lady Gaga clapped lower back at Murtaugh, tweeting: “HEY TIM HEY @realDonaldTrump SO HAPPY IM GLAD TO BE LIVING RENT FREE to your HEAD. #BidenHarris.”
The Oscar-winner attached an picture of Murtaugh’s assertion, adorned with lively stickers that stated “LOL” and “Vote Biden,” as well as the message, “Heeeey Donald… #WINNING (also, what’s a fracking?) maintain your jobs PA… We (heart emoji) You.”
