Trump uses Winter Storm Harper as an opportunity to mock global warming

Sunday morning, President Donald Trump hopped onto Twitter to share his thoughts on Winter Storm Harper, the intense winter storm which has hit the Midwest and is heading East. Mind you, five people have already died, thousands of flights have been canceled, and countless people are without power. Not to mention the dire impact severe weather conditions can have on vulnerable communities, like those who are homeless, can’t afford heat, or live with a disability.

Of course, Trump can’t talk about the weather without making some extremely ignorant remarks about climate change. All under the guise of a joke!

First, he tweeted:


Be careful and try staying in your house. Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold. Amazing how big this system is. Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!

Then he followed with:


Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS – Whatever happened to Global Warming?
