Fiery Varney Blasts 'Jealous Coastal Elites' for Post-Harvey Criticism of Texas
Stuart Varney called out the "coastal elites" for criticizing Houston after the devastating floods from Hurricane Harvey.
The Fox Business host said some liberals in California and New York are trying to find ways to blame the city for the flooding by calling out "rampant development" on surrounding prairie land.
Plus, Varney said some have pointed out that Houston is home to the fossil fuel industry, therefore helping to create global warming.
"Research has show there is no increase in the frequency or intensity of hurricanes since 1900 and no increase in the frequency or intensity of floods since 1950," Varney pointed out.
He accused the critics of being "jealous" of the way Texas has implemented pro-growth, low-tax and limited government policies.
On his show yesterday, Varney called out a Politico cartoon - shared on Twitter and quickly deleted - that mocked Texans for opposing government while relying on FEMA for aid.

"I'm really unhappy with the coastal elites and their nasty, snarky comments about the good people of Texas," he said.
