On Tuesday, CNN host Anderson Cooper mocked Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) after he used multiple posters to critique the Green New Deal.
“I’m talking about giant size posters on the floor of the Senate,” Cooper said. “This is, of course, a picture of former president Ronald Reagan, naturally firing a machine gun while riding on the back of a dinosaur. “
“As for the senator, he was just getting warmed up,” he said.
Lee argued that all of our climate change problems can be solved by getting married and having babies.
“Okay. I love babies. I got no problem with them except they do seem a little judgy,” Anderson joked.
Lee was also scrutinized by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (R-NY.) Who tweeted, “If this guy can be Senator, you can do anything.”
Like many other women + working people, I occasionally suffer from impostor syndrome: those small moments, especially on hard days, where you wonder if the haters are right.# p #7_14 # ad skipped = true #

“The props said it all,” Cooper said. “That actually happened in our government on Capitol Hill.”
