Dan Crenshaw was pulling no punches on Wednesday as he wrote a scathing tweet criticizing John Kerry's comments regarding the now cancelled Keystone XL pipeline deal.

Kerry suggested that oil and gas workers can just build solar panels instead after President Biden issued a series of executive orders to slowly shutter the fossil fuel industry by federal fiat.

"John Kerry – worth hundreds of millions — telling blue-collar workers to just 'go to work to make the solar panels.' By the way, solar will pay on average $20K less than oil and gas jobs. John Kerry thinks you should just shutup and accept it. No." said Crenshaw.

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton also had similar words in a pair of tweets on Wednesday:

"John Kerry's message to the tens of thousands of Americans who lost their jobs thanks to the Biden administration: go make solar panels. Where is the empathy that Joe Biden promised in his inauguration?" Cotton tweeted on Wednesday.

"John Kerry—who flies in private jets, owned a 76-foot yacht and several mansions—has the carbon footprint of a small nation. Yet he tells energy workers to ‘make solar panels’ when the Biden administration kills their jobs."

Kerry himself had said the following at a press conference on Wednesday:

"You know, you look at the consequences of black lung for a miner, for instance, and measure that against the fastest growing job in the United States before COVID was solar power technician."

"The same people can do those jobs, but the choice of doing the solar power one now is a better choice. Similarly, you have the second fastest growing job pre-COVID was wind turbine technician."

"So what President Biden wants to do is make sure those folks have better choices, that they have alternatives, that they can be the people that go to work to make the solar panels, that we’re making them here at home."
