Congressman Ed Markey (D-MA) appeared Thursday night on MSNBC’s The Last Word to discuss the Republican presidential candidates wanted to dismantle the Environmental Protection Agency.
“Rick Perry and these other guys are allergic to science,” Markey said. “And too many of the tea party people, who basically don’t believe in science, are now controlling the Republican Party.”
He added that the Republican Party was now controlled by the oil and coal industry.

GOP lawmaker indicted for allegedly choking woman with Ethernet cable and threatening to ‘hog tie’ her
"Earlier this year, a woman said Goforth, 44, strangled her with an Ethernet cable to the point where she had trouble breathing and threatened to 'hog tie' her, according to a police report reviewed by the newspaper," said the report.

‘Maybe by the end of October’: Trump claims COVID-19 vaccine just weeks away
President Donald Trump predicted a vaccine would be available before the Nov. 3 election.
The president gave himself an A-plus on his response to the coronavirus pandemic that has killed 200,000 in the U.S., and told "Fox & Friends" it would soon end.
"We're rounding the corner, with or without a vaccine," Trump said. "They a hate it when I say it, but that's the way it is. We're rounding the corner on the pandemic, and we've done a phenomenal job -- not just a good job. Other than public relations, but that's because I have fake news. You can't convince them of anything, they're a fake, but we have done -- on public relations, I give myself a D. On the job itself, we take an A-plus with the ventilators and now with the vaccines that are years ahead of schedule."
Trump tells Fox & Friends that RBG’s dying wish may be a hoax written by Adam Schiff
President Donald Trump on Monday told "Fox & Friends" that he believed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dying wish may have been a "hoax" concocted by Democrats.
During the interview, the president was asked about Ginsburg saying that she did not want to be replaced until after the 2020 presidential election.
"I don't know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi," the president said. "I would be more inclined to the second."
As CNN fact checker Daniel Dale notes, Ginsburg's dying wish was "conveyed by the granddaughter."
