President Donald Trump tried to attack Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) because she held her announcement outdoors in the snow in her home state.
“Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!” Trump tweeted Sunday.

Trump has made the same climate change joke before because he doesn’t seem to understand the science of extreme weather created.
However, CNN’s Ana Navarro found irony in the tweet in which he mocked Klobuchar for standing in the snow.
“It made me chuckle, frankly, and roll my eyes,” Navarro said. “This is a guy who skipped a visit to a U.S. cemetery in France of U.S. veterans because he, poor baby, was afraid to get his little hair wet. And so, I think taking on Amy Klobuchar, attacking her for standing in the middle of a snowfall in her home state — it might not be the hill he wants to die on. Might not be the smartest line of attack for Trump.”
She went on, saying she’s noticed him be careful about Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA). But if calling Klobuchar “snow woman” is the best he can come up with, Navarro said, “that’s not much of a nickname from where he comes from.”
Trump has been notorious for labeling political foes with nicknames. Navarro said he’s great at branding things, but encouraged him to go back to the drawing board for this one.

Ex-Reagan adviser nails why white evangelicals flock to Trump in devastating takedown of fake Christians
Why do evangelicals — or at least, white ones — love President Donald Trump so much? Why do they stick by a president who has barely even read the Bible, has defiled marriage, and embodies the antithesis of so much of what their churches preach? Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?
Ivanka bashed by CNN guest for jumping into Trump’s racism scandal late and trying to make herself look good
Appearing on CNN, the author of a piece in The Atlantic on Ivanka Trump's disappearing act whenever her father, President Donald Trump, does something offensive, said the first daughter likes to pick her spots when she can be "part of the show."
Speaking with CNN host Ana Cabrera, journalist Elaina Plott said Ivanka's influence on her father has been overstated since the beginning of his presidency and she moves into the public eye when it benefits her.
CNN host forced to explain to Republican Rick Santorum why Trump’s attack on Democratic lawmakers was racist
During an appearance on CNN's "New Day" -- along with fellow Republican Charlie Dent (PA) -- ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) received a lecture from host John Berman on why Donald Trump's tweets and attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were racist.
While Dent revealed that down-ticket Republicans running for re-election in 2020 are "terrified" that Trump's descent into overt racism as a campaign strategy may kill their chances of holding their seats, Santorum said he was disgusted with the whole spectacle while saying he didn't see the attacks as racist.
Asked about the president's attacks, Santorum tried to brush them away and blame the recipients of Trump's ire.
