When it comes to exposing the duplicitous nature of his opponent in the November election, President Donald Trump “has no chill.”

That’s the assessment of OANN correspondent Jack Posobiec in response to Trump setting up a giant video screen Tuesday night at a rally in Erie, Pa., to play footage of Democratic nominee Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, insisting that they will ban fracking — Biden said in a recent Philadelphia town hall he does not want to ban fracking.


Fracking is a key issue in the battleground state of Pennsylvania, and Trump hit it over and over Tuesday night, and also called out the “fake news” media for not reporting on it.

“I guarantee you, we’re going to end fossil fuels. No new fracking. I’d gradually move away from fracking,” Biden says in the mashup of clips.

“Right now, he’s got bigger problems than fracking,” the president told the crowd. “It’s called the laptop from hell.”

Trump said the mashup was “an original Donald Trump Broadway play.”

“First time I have ever pulled it out,” he said. “I had it done specifically for the people of Erie because you guys like energy. You like being energy independent.”

“Your fracking and mining industries will be outlawed, exiled, eradicated and totally extinguished And you know it because it’s not up to Sleepy Joe, he’s gonzo. It’s up to the others in the party,” Trump added, as he pointed to his head.


“Only by voting for me can you save your fracking in Pennsylvania,” he said. “You are going to reject the radical left.”

Trump won the state narrowly in 2016 and told supporters, “If we win Pennsylvania we win the whole thing.”

The Trump campaign shared the video montage online after the rally:

Interestingly, GOP political consultant Karl Rove suggested last week that Trump use large video screens at rallies to play footage of Biden and Harris flip-flopping on issues like fracking.

“He’s a showman,” Rove said of Trump in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “He needs to figure out how to do this.”

There was plenty of applause online for the use of the video screen, here’s a sampling of the responses from Twitter:
