Trump Tries To Explain Why Climate Change Is A Hoax, Ends Up Contradicting Himself

Published

Let’s face it: Donald Trump is a living contradiction, he could say one thing and mean another, or he could promise one thing and do the complete opposite. On Thursday CNN reported that Trump changed his mind about the magnitude of Hurrican Harvey and Hurricane Irma after being asked about climate change.

While speaking to a pool of reporters aboard Air Force One, Trump was asked if his views on climate change have changed following Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. His response was a word salad full of contradicting dressing.

Trump, who had recently called Irma the biggest “we have ever seen,” changed his mind when confronted with a question about climate change saying, “we’ve had bigger storms than this.”

“If you go back into the 1930s and the 1940s, and you take a look, we’ve had storms over the years that have been bigger than this,” Trump said. “If you go back into the teens, you’ll see storms that were as big or bigger. So we did have two horrific storms, epic storms, but if you go back into the ’30s and ’40s, and you go back into the teens, you’ll see storms that were very similar and even bigger, OK?”

According to expert scientists, global warming has risen sea levels and the rise in the sea levels have been the cause of these high category hurricanes.

Trump’s comments contradict everything he said following Hurrican Irma.

“Hurricane Irma is of epic proportion, perhaps bigger than we have ever seen,” Trump tweeted as Irma moved closer to Florida.

Earlier this month he tweeted, “Hurricane looks like largest ever recorded in the Atlantic!”

And on Thursday in Florida, before his comments aboard Air Force One about climate change, Trump said the people of Florida experienced something “the likes of which we can say really say nobody’s ever seen before.”

“They’ve never seen a category like this come in because it came in really at a five,” he said.

If You Thought Kamala Harris Was Tough On Brett Kavanaugh, Just Wait Until She Debates Mike Pence

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate. Following the news of Biden’s selection, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace called into her network while on vacation to point out that Harris will mop the floor with Vice President Mike Pence during debates.

“The other piece of reporting I’ve picked up in the past week was from the Trump team, that from their viewpoint, because Donald Trump has no capacity to understand that this is the selection of a person to run the government with the president, he only saw this in terms of casting for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate, and this was the pick that scared them the most,” Wallace told MSNBC’s Brian Williams.

“They thought she would more than go toe-to-toe with [Mike] Pence, they thought she could chew him up and spit him out and pointed to her cross-examination of one Bill Barr,” she explained.

“I don’t know that there’s a better debater or questioner on the political field right now,” Wallace said. Her skill-set is unmatched in terms much being able to articulate an argument, to patiently wait to make her point and look at the argument that the democratic ticket has to make.”
