Actress Patricia Arquette claimed Wednesday that Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) would “kill people” by opposing green energy jobs.
Sen. Kennedy recently spoke to Fox News regarding his thoughts about Tuesday’s Democrat presidential debates, which moderate Democrats such as former Rep. John Delaney (D-MD) attacked the more progressive Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
Kennedy slammed all the Democrats as tip-toeing too close to embracing socialist policies.
“I’m not buying the storyline of progressives vs. moderates. I would you remind you that the lesser of two socialists is still a socialist.”
President Donald Trump tweeted out Sen. Kennedy’s statement about the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates.

The Louisiana senator continued, suggesting that even the most moderate candidates embraced a “job-killing socialist agenda.”
Arquette replied to Kennedy on Twitter, contending that, because Louisiana will allegedly be damaged most by the purported effects of climate change, Sen. Kennedy will “kill people” by opposing “new green energy jobs.”
Arquette claimed, “Your state is one of the poorest in the nation. Your state is going to be horrifically impacted by climate change, and you are against new green energy jobs that would help protect your state from climate change?”
“Shameless. Your going to kill people,” the actress said.

Arquette appears amazed that Sen. Kennedy would oppose climate change programs such as the Green New Deal, which would cost over $93 trillion, according to one study.
The Green New Deal would approximately cost over four times the national debt. The climate change program would also cost more than the total cost of 3,700 border walls, and also amounts to more than the value of the global economy.
However, Arquette does not serve as the only leftist to make hyperbolic claims. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg claimed Tuesday night during the Democrat debates that the world only has 12 years to address climate change before it becomes too late.
Not to be outdone by his Democrat opponent, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke made even more daunting claim — O’Rourke said Tuesday that the world only has ten years to address climate change.
