Oscar and Grammy-winning singer and global warming activist John Legend and his model wife Chrissy Teigen flew 500 miles on a private jet to dine at a restaurant for their Valentine’s Day date, despite Legend’s insistence that the planet is in the midst of a “climate crisis.”

John Legend and Teigen reportedly traveled via private jet to grab dinner at the French Laundry restaurant in Yountville, California, which is roughly 500 miles from their home. Teigen documented the Valentine’s Day trip in an Instagram story, which showed the couple on their way to the restaurant in the luxury jet.

Teigen took in the moment and shared the luxury experience on her Instagram. . . .

. . . Legend and Teigen join a long line of virtue signaling elites in Hollywood and DC who routinely embrace private air travel, despite their warnings of a looming “crisis.”

Both Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have embraced private air travel over the course of their presidential campaigns. The socialist senator, who hopes to make his $16 trillion climate change plan a reality, spent over $1 million on private jet usage in the final quarter of 2019.

Or his wife. She is very snobbish and outspoken about
her political views.

I think pretty much all the A-list eco-celebs who preach to us about climate change do this. I really don’t understand why anyone needs to own a personal jet. They ought to be confiscated.

What is Chrissy Teigen known for besides being married to John Legend? Is she a celebrity in her own right?

@Regular_Atheist well it’s a status symbol, for one thing.

I agree, and I think your post also applies to many of the most avid climate-change politicians and journalists (television journalists especially).

I would dearly love to see many of our wealthiest politicians do a “Deplorables Tour.” I have thought about creating one in my area of the country (Northern Illinois).

So many of us live in fairly-small (1400 square feet or less, which is small here in the U.S.), fairly old (>50 years) houses, and regularly eat “starch” for dinner (mac and cheese) because the trendy “Mediterranean Diet” is kind of expensive and frankly not very appealing when the temperature is 6 degrees and the North Wind is howling and driving the 12 inches of snow into drifts on our driveways.

I think that if politicians and A-list entertainment and journalist celebs did a tour of these homes, staying overnight in them (probably on a sofa, or in one of the kids’ bedrooms!), sharing one small bathroom with everyone in the house, and eating Cheerios for breakfast–I think they might just recognize why everyone isn’t jumping on the “climate-change” bandwagon and buying a no-gasoline car, or installing solar panels, or riding a bike to work. (I personally think bikes should be outlawed during winter storms–I nearly sent a bike rider to his heavenly reward last week when I was trying to drive behind him on a hilly, icy city street that was too narrow for me to pass him! Thank goodness my very old Saturn did its job and didn’t slide into him).

It’s easy to be green when you’re rich.

I kind of do. I knew someone that worked in TSA and he said when they saw a celeb they liked that person would be chosen for additional security checks so they could interact with the person more. Add to this being constantly approached by strangers that want selfies either the celeb (do people still ask for autographs?) after a while I imagine it could get to be slightly bothersome. Sometimes you just want to get on a plane and try to relax.

Here is one instance where John Legend raised his voice to fight global cooling:

I do not know if this story is true, but I do know there are many here who do not believe in MMGW, yet who still act more environmentally conscience than others who claim to be environmentalist, with Nancy Pelosi being the first one I thought of. Heck, the whole idea of carbon offsets is nothing but a way to excuse hypocrisy. So whether this story is true or not, I know it happens. I guess I will just do like I always do, reduce, reuse, recycle, and tune out those who use celebrity status in place of intellect.

Now why in the world should they be confiscated??? If one can afford a private jet, one should be able to use it to their heart’s content.

Often people charter private jets as opposed to owning them.

Donnie Wahlberg, for example, works in New York to film Blue Bloods. But he lives in suburban Chicago. He goes home on the weekends on a plane he charters.

Timing is better than waiting for commercial flights.

If you would confiscate property that someone else legally owns, then you’re worse than the person whose property you confiscated.

I would get around this by making it illegal to own that property, and then confiscating it.

That’s just as bad.

Thanks for this candid reply.

For all others, I have pointed out the radical nature of some of the Bernie supporters and all the social havoc they plan on wreacking upon society.

And how even if they didn’t plan on them, their policies almost
demand such ABUSE OF FORCE reactions of Government against its own citizens.

I’m not saying Regular_Atheist’s ideas fall into that sphere.

But I am not saying Regular_Atheist’s ideas DON’T fall into that sphere either (here).

You will have to draw your own conclusions.

Confiscate all personal property that include the “sin” of having private jets.

Ask yourself about Government running around using
(misusing) its privileges of EXTREME FORCE
coming around and CONFISCATING private property such as this (yet almost certainly exempting themselves from their own Puritanical “sins” that they “preach” against you “committing”.

(I guarantee Government politicians would still have private planes.)

Draw your own conclusions where this is heading.

Ask yourself if the Bernie campaign people recordings from Project Veritas could be outliers . . . .

. . . Then ask yourself if Bernie campaign people recordings from Project Veritas . . .

. . . could be very much mainstream to those people.

Regular Atheist has made it clear he views Bernie as a moderate who is in no way radical. He is not one of his supporters.

It is a bit pointless therefore to try and use him as an example of a ‘Bernie supporter’ or to suggest this is what Bernie’s supporters may be thinking.

But you may not or may not be doing that. People will draw their own conclusion.

Also, never mow your grass below four inches. Better yet, plant a prairie grass and don’t mow it below eight inches. If you live in a desert, though, I’m not sure what to tell you. :slight_smile:

For some very rich persons, private jets may make sense when the question is what is that person’s time and privacy worth. Some people will own them, others will charter them instead. I have no issue with some rich person choosing this mode of travel.

That said, using private jets makes for quite a sizable carbon footprint as compared to being just another passenger on a jet that carries many passengers. So it’s incumbent on those who preach about carbon footprints whether directly or indirectly to actually set an example that can be respected. If you’re going to use private jets, don’t be talking down to the little people about their carbon footprints. So if these subjects of this discussion would have flown first class, then we wouldn’t be so hard on them.
