It took Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden mere seconds — literal seconds — to drastically flip-flop on one of the central issues in the 2020 race.

The flip-flop occurred during the first 2020 presidential debate Tuesday evening after moderator Chris Wallace brought up the issue of climate change.

Speaking to Biden, Wallace said, “You propose $2 trillion in green jobs. You talk about new limits, not abolishing, but new limits on fracking. Ending the use of fossil fuels to generate electricity by 2035 and zero none admission of greenhouse gases by 2050. The president says a lot of these things would tank the economy and cost millions of jobs.”

In response, the Democrat nominee predictably said the president is “absolutely wrong” and then outlined the details of his plan, which calls for never building “another oil fire plant,” switching to electric vehicles, rejoining the Paris Accord, etc.

This list of climate change-themed goals prompted the president to note that Biden’s plan appears to sound no different than the radical Green New Deal.

“He’s talking about the Green New Deal. And it’s not $2 billion or $20 billion. It’s $100 trillion,” he said, referring to the Green New Deal’s estimated cost.

Responding to the president’s accusation, Biden said, “That is not my plan. The Green New Deal is not my plan.

If he would have stuck with that line, perhaps people would have believed him. But he didn’t.

Watch what happened next:

“About the economy and about this question of what it’s going to cost, the Green New Deal and the idea of what your environment changes will do …,” Wallace said.

The Green New Deal will pay for itself as we move forward. We’re not going to build plants that, in fact, are great polluting plants …,” Biden tried replying before being cut off by Wallace.

The moderator cut him off because he was surprised to hear the Democrat presidential nominee suddenly become a defender of the Green New Deal.

“So, do you support the Green New Deal?” he asked in confusion.

No, I don’t support the Green New Deal!” Biden exclaimed.

Then why were you just defending it a literal second ago?

The president seemed just as shocked as America.

“Oh, you don’t [support the deal]? Oh, well, that’s a big statement!” he said.

He added, “You just lost the radical left.”

Did he really though, or did he just lie? The evidence suggests it’s the latter.

Look:

It doesn’t help that the Green New Deal’s author, radical socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, chose to rush to Biden’s defense after the debate.

“Our differences are exactly why I joined Biden’s Climate Unity Task Force – so we could set aside our differences & figure out an aggressive climate plan to address the planetary crisis at our feet,” she wrote in a tweet.

Look:

The following ominous remarks made by Democrat Sen. Ed Markey also don’t appear to help Biden with his claim that he isn’t for the Green New Deal:

So to recap, Biden’s own website lists the GND as the “framework” for his own plan, Biden has repeatedly “embraced” and praised the GND, Biden has said that the GND is a “litmus test” for Democrats, the GND’s author is working on his climate team, and Sen. Markey has said the radical left “will pass a Green New Deal” through Biden.

It honestly sounds like the Democrat nominee secretly supports the Green New Deal but isn’t willingly to explicitly admit so publicly because it’d alienate the millions of Americans who aren’t too keen on seeing their first-world lifestyles be ruined.

Either way, while Biden may not be willing to publicly come out in support of the Green New Deal, it looks like the Green New Deal has no issues about coming out in support of him.
