Weeks after the Biden administration axed the Keystone XL pipeline, a pipeline worker’s video talking about the years of his life he has put into his job is making the rounds.

45-year-old Jason Jernigan, who says he’s a member of the Pipeliners Local 798 union, in the video said: “I’ve been a pipeliner for 21 years. This is all I know how to do. The recent administration has taken my livelihood from me and expected me to get a job somewhere else. I’ve got my whole life invested in this.”

The union is based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma, according to its website. Recently, the union has been pushing against the cancelation of the Keystone XL project, which had faced fierce backlash from environmentalists and indigenous groups.

The pipeline would have linked the oil fields of Western Canada to the Gulf of Mexico and passed through Cushing, Oklahoma on the way, which is about an hour west of Tulsa.

On his first day in office, President Joe Biden signed an executive order revoking the permits for the massive pipeline.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
