Trump Goes Full-Stupid During Late Night Twitter Rant About Global Warming


Donald Trump took to his twitter account to mockingly mention the fact that record cold temperatures are expected to hit the east coast around New Year’s Day, and then he displayed his magnificent inability to understand even the most elementary of scientific terminology.

It’s no secret that Donald Trump is a long time climate change denier. His days of denying scientific evidence and opinion started long before he hit the campaign trail and didn’t hurt him at all at the polls, likely due to a lack of understanding on the part of conservative voters.

Trump did get one thing correct: The east coast is expected to hit record low temperatures over New Year’s weekend. No one thought to explain to the president that just because the term “global warming” technically contains the word “warm” does not mean that every single place on the planet will always be warmer. In fact, climate change increases the likelihood of many extreme weather events, including record lows and winter storms. Oceans warming and the earth’s surface getting a couple degrees warmer does not suddenly make seasons not exist.

The president has said in the past that he believes that global warming was “created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

Below you can read the Tweet Trump clearly didn’t think about before posting:

Below are some of the top responses to Donald Trump’s ridiculously stupid statement:

ANTARCTICA – OCTOBER 27: Ice floats near the coast of West Antarctica viewed from a window of a NASA Operation IceBridge airplane on October 27, 2016 in-flight over Antarctica. NASA’s Operation IceBridge has been studying how polar ice has evolved over the past eight years and is currently flying a set of 12-hour research flights over West Antarctica at the start of the melt season. Researchers have used the IceBridge data to observe that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet may be in a state of irreversible decline directly contributing to rising sea levels. NASA and University of California, Irvine (UCI) researchers have recently detected the speediest ongoing Western Antarctica glacial retreat rates ever observed.
