Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has been an avid supporter of the “Green New Deal,” a plan that would take dramatic steps to curb the United States’ contribution to global climate change. But in a Fox News interview with Sean Hannity, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders turned to condescension.
Hannity and Sanders both yucked it up about members of the Millennial Generation, who Hannity said are worried the world is going to end in 12 years if something isn’t done about climate change.
“I don’t think that we are going to listen to her on much of anything, particularly anything that we will leave into the hands of a much, much higher authority,” Sanders said, presumably referring to God. “And certainly not listen to the freshman congresswoman on when the world may end.”
Sanders said the president is more focused on what is happening “in the world right now” instead of securing the United States for the future.
“We wish that Democrats would engage in that conversation and fixed some of the current problems that we know exist and work with us to get some things done,” Sanders continued. “Particularly on the border and fixing the national and humanitarian crisis. That is what we are focused on. Not things we will leave up into the hands of something and someone much more powerful than any of us.”

Trump is ‘unethical and tyrannical’ for firing inspector general who relayed Ukraine complaint: Conservative columnist
On Monday, writing for the Washington Examiner, conservative columnist Quin Hillyer laid into President Donald Trump for getting rid of intelligence community inspector general Michael Atkinson.
Hillyer pointed out that the GOP and some Democrats "rightly expressed outrage" when President Barack Obama fired Gerald Walpin, the AmeriCorps inspector general who Obama had claimed was "confused and disoriented" in meetings and took unauthorized absences from work. But "Trump has even less reason to fire Atkinson now than Obama had to fire Walpin then."
Trump admits he hasn’t read Capt. Brett Crozier’s letter — but is angry about it anyway
At President Donald Trump's Monday press briefing for the coronavirus task force, he claimed that he was angry about Navy Capt. Brett Crozier's leaked letter warning of COVID-19 spreading throughout the U.S.S. Theodore Roosevelt — but admitted he hadn't even read what was in it.
"I think it was five pages long, single-spaced," Trump said. "That's a lot of words!" He also said that it was bad how many copies of the letter he had made — "I think 28."
As he had earlier in the press conference, Trump was more evasive about whether he agreed with acting Navy Secretary's Thomas Modly's decision to relieve Crozier of command of the vessel, saying that he would have to discuss it with Modly.
Trump says Democrats ‘shouldn’t be allowed to win’ 2020 election after his coronavirus response
Near the end of President Donald Trump's Monday press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic, the president said that Democrats "shouldn't be allowed to win" the election after everything he has done with regard to the pandemic — and said that the virus has "artificially stopped" them.
He also proceeded to attack President Barack Obama, saying that his administration did essentially nothing to stop the swine flu pandemic in 2009. In reality, the Obama administration was much quicker to declare a public health emergency in that crisis, and the CDC promptly sequenced the virus and issued test kits.
