CHESAPEAKE, VIRGINIA: Former professional tennis player Andy Roddick recently made headlines for his sharp critique of former President Donald Trump's remarks about electric and solar-powered vehicles.

During a rally in Chesapeake, Virginia, on Friday, June 28, Trump confused the two types of technology, sparking laughter and criticism alike. The GOP presidential candidate's comments, delivered in his signature style, were captured in a widely circulated video where he talked about the impracticalities of electric planes, as per Forbes.

In the video, Trump was heard saying, "All they want is electric. They want electric army tanks. Electric planes. What happens when the sun isn't shining when you are up in the air? [laughter] I told you there would be problems. Now they want electric everything." 

The former president also took the opportunity to lambast car manufacturers for what he described as an overproduction of electric vehicles due to government subsidies.

He expressed, "Why would somebody want 100% electric vehicles and they are not going far? They are too expensive. They [electric cars] have a great place for a certain application. But you don't want 100%. They have made so many. They have spent trillions of dollars on subsidies."

Roddick, known for his candid takes on social and political issues, shared the video on X (formerly Twitter) and delivered a stinging retort. The tennis star wrote, "I don't think he knows the difference between electric and solar..."

He also took a dig at President Joe Biden, noting, "Also Biden is old and stutters."

This isn't the first time Roddick has publicly criticized Trump.

A few months ago, he took aim at the former president for selling branded Bibles at a high price, which he found ethically questionable. The 'God Bless the USA Bible', priced at $59.99, included additional content such as the US Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the lyrics to Lee Greenwood's song 'God Bless the USA'. 

Roddick highlighted the ethical concerns in a reply to a Fox News video where an anchor questioned the media's criticism of Trump's Bible.

He wrote, "No. They're saying there are organizations out there that do it for free, and that it's A) weird to put your own name on a Bible B) weird for a supposed billionaire to personally profit from selling a book of religion."

Roddick's post on Trump quickly gained traction on X (formerly Twitter) and many came forward to share their thoughts. 

One said, "...and they all actually believe all this rubbish that comes out of his mouth. Sad," while another remarked, "Sadly, his followers don’t either."

"He doesn’t know much of anything so no surprise there," joked a person and someone else added, "He doesn’t know the difference between yes and no. Right and wrong. I’ll be surprised if he knows left from right."

One more quipped, "To be fair, no one ever accused him of being intelligent." "His stupidity, and the stupidity of his supporters, is truly staggering," expressed another person. 

An individual wrote, "He doesn't know the difference between electric and magic. Without question, the dumbest man to ever be President. No wonder he's so easily manipulated by foreign adversaries."
