I honestly knew very little about the man other than he had a tv show in the early 2000s. Seeing these big hotels with his name on them didn't make sense to me until after the moron got voted in by his fan club. Now I see him as an angry old man who blames everyone else for his own failings. Like that lifelong alcholic on the phone outside a bar complaining to someone who probably doesn't care.

Still not as bad as bankrupting a casino, which he did twice.
I'm convinced his casinos were just mob fronts. I'd bet good money that they were used to launder money, dupe investors, and take out bad loans; they were never intended to be successful businesses in the long run.

I agree with you. The problem is, that is like killing the goose that lays golden eggs.

Holy shit, all of the quotes and snippits of his comments I've seen until now stopped at the end of his question. I was willing to chalk it up as some sort of sarcastic question to claim that we can't control climate change because of natural cycles and planet and galaxy-scale things like that...but then his follow-up...holy shit, it was a real question.

I wonder if he had just read this headline, and thought we could weaponize the effect, or something.

None anymore...
IMHO that's not "let's have a laugh", it's more like "Political WTFuckintosh since those people are actively influencing legislation which is frightening...

This ladies and gentlemen, is why we need to improve our education system.
Yeah, this is very much a case for critical thinking and media literacy...
While I think we can all agree that the Rep. does not actually believe what he said himself (i.e. he's not the one needing the education - he's just doing what he perceives as his job), probably way too many people took what he said at face value and were willing to believe that was actually a sensible / meaningful addition to the debate.

@Eye-Q: agreed. mostly frightening in the sense that those guys seem to have lost any compass on where the line on lying and bullshittery lies. They can spout any old nonsense and they'll be taken seriously by "their people".

I'm assuming best-case scenario here of him trying to make a sarcastic and snarky point about factors we can't control warming the climate, not actually suggesting BLM and the Forest Service move the moon. The fact that he thinks this is a good point to make or that he believes he's clever or a TV lawyer by questioning someone into a corner with this line of questions just shows how willfully ignorant he is.

It's the same as asking "Do sailing ships fly and do sailors have wings?" in a discussion about circumnavigating the globe because you think they will fall off the edge of the world.

The very moment it was said it was debunked. It's not funny that for even a moment people could believe that Trump would wear his pants backwards. It is fucking hilarious that that every outlet ran the story just to point at Trump and laugh at him.
