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-voting evangelist drops the ‘blasphemy’ hammer on president for deifying himself
In a column for the Washington Post, an evangelical leader who admits he voted for Donald Trump in 2016 is very displeased that the president anointed himself the "chosen one" when speaking with the press on Wednesday.
According to Jay Lowder who heads up the Harvest Ministries in Wichita Falls, Texas, the president stepped over a line with his boast -- calling it "disturbing."
"Since President Trump’s election, many in the evangelical community have lauded him, grateful for his work to protect and propel some of the Christian values we hold so dear," before pointing out that a comparison to Jesus by man who "claims to be a Christian" is nothing less than " shocking, blasphemous and sacrilegious."
Couple who ran demon-obsessed gay ‘conversion therapy’ camp indicted on human trafficking charges
An Alabama couple who operated a controversial gay "conversion therapy" camp has been indicted on human trafficking charges in connection with a new religious facility they set up in Texas.
A grand jury indicted 49-year-old Gary Wiggins and 34-year-old Meghann Wiggins after investigators found they had forced children to work at their Joshua Home for troubled boys, reported KXAN-TV.
Burnet County officials raided the 10-acre property near Bertram in July 2018, where they removed eight boys between 10 and 17 years old as part of an investigation into possible abuse, neglect, labor violations, fraud, licensing violations and human trafficking.
Trump officials to face congressional grilling over president’s link to white nationalist terrorism
Next week, Democrats on the House Oversight Committee are poised to question members of the Trump administration about the dangerous rise in white nationalist violence.
Just last weekend, a man slaughtered dozens of people in El Paso, Texas, after citing an "invasion" on the Southwest border.
In addition to questioning senior national security officials about the rise in white nationalism violence, they also plan to ask them whether they think President Donald Trump is instigating violent acts with his rhetoric, reports Greg Sargent in the Washington Post.
