Obama just had another “you didn’t build that” moment. While speaking at an event on Tuesday, he tried to take credit for booming oil production in the United States. And he does this as Democrats all over the country are saying climate change and fossil fuels will kill us all any day now.

Obama Claims Credit for Boom in U.S. Oil Production, Praises Paris Climate Accords
Former President Barack Obama claimed credit Tuesday for the recent boom in U.S. oil production immediately after praising the Paris Climate Accords, which committed the U.S. to dramatically reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.
“I was extraordinarily proud of the Paris accords because — you know, I know we’re in oil country and we need American energy, and by the way, American energy production,” Obama told the audience gathered at Rice University’s Baker Institute on Tuesday night. “You wouldn’t always know it but it went up every year I was president. That whole, suddenly America’s like the biggest oil producer and the biggest gas — that was me, people.”

His hypocrisy knows no bounds. He was horrible for U.S. energy production in America, which managed to happen despite him, not because of him.
