CNN’s Chris Cuomo grilled Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci on his position on climate change Wednesday morning — and he came away stunned by the lengths he went to deny it’s a real phenomenon.
When Cuomo confronted Scaramucci with a simple fact that there’s an overwhelming consensus about the causes of climate change within the scientific community, Scaramucci suggested that they could all be wrong by noting that “scientists” once refused to believe that the Earth was round.
“Look, I know the current president believes that the human beings are affecting the climate,” said Scaramucci. “There are scientists that believe that that’s not happening.”
Cuomo wasn’t letting him off the hook, however.
“The overwhelming consensus is that man’s actions have an impact on science,” he explained, just before Scaramucci dropped a dumbfounding reply.
“Chris, there was an overwhelming science that the earth was flat,” the Trump adviser said, despite the fact that beliefs in a flat Earth were anything but “scientific.” “We were the center of the world. 100%. You know, we did a lot of things wrong in the scientific community. You and I both know that. I’m not suggesting that we’re affecting the change. I honestly don’t know, I’m not a scientist.”
Cuomo once again pointed out that the available data shows that climate change is a real danger, but Scaramucci told him to calm down because Trump met with actor Leonardo DiCaprio to talk about it.
“I just told you that we met with Leo DiCaprio last week, and we met with Vice President Al Gore,” he said. “As you just mentioned, Ivanka is working on this issue. The president-elect is a very common sense oriented guy and basically what he said is if we reduce carbon emissions, the air is going to get cleaner.”

Former acting CIA director explains why Trump’s inaction on Russian bounty scandal will make things worse
It was revealed nearly two weeks ago that the Russian government is paying a bounty to the Taliban for killing American soldiers.
Since then, President Donald Trump has denied that he and his administration didn't know anything about it. Then he claimed it was a hoax. Now it has become clear that the stories are not only true but that if Trump read his presidential daily briefing in 2019, he would have been aware of the problem.
Speaking to the House Thursday, Trump's former acting CIA director Michael Morell explained that things are being made far worse by the president's denial.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
