Donald Trump has waved his magic Twitter wand. He turned it onto the ideal that Democrats are the party of acceptance. Poof. Then, he pointed his wand at the idea that scientific facts are real. Poof. Once POTUS was done sprinkling his wand’s delusion dust upon the masses, he looked to see if he had obliterated factual proof and turned people toward his fake reality.
In his first early morning tweet, the man who occasionally sits in the Oval Office said that Democrats were “anti Israel (sic),” “anti-semitism,” and “they don’t care” about either group:
‘“Jewish people are leaving the Democratic Party. We saw a lot of anti Israel policies start under the Obama Administration, and it got worsts & worse. There is anti-Semitism in the Democratic Party. They don’t care about Israel or the Jewish people.” Elizabeth Pipko, Jexodus.’
Then, Trump tried to convince the public that Greenpeace said “the whole climate crisis is…fake science.” The problem with that quote was that Patrick Moore did not found Greenpeace, and it continued:
‘Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace: “The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science. There is no climate crisis, there’s weather and climate all around the world, and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life.”
Trump’s anti-reality attempts did not work, because Democrats firmly believe in reality. The problem with the president’s anti-reality attack on Greenpeace.org was that Moore has mistakenly claimed he founded Greenpeace:
‘…often misrepresents himself in the media as an environmental “expert” or even an “environmentalist,” while offering anti-environmental opinions on a wide range of issues and taking a distinctly anti-environmental stance.’
Then, there was the issue that Moore represented Greenpeace:
‘Patrick Moore has been a paid spokesman for a variety of polluting industries for more than 30 years, including the timber, mining, chemical and the aquaculture industries…Mr. Moore has now worked for polluters for far longer than he ever worked for Greenpeace. Greenpeace opposes the use of nuclear energy because it is a dangerous and expensive distraction from real solutions to climate change.’
