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.
But then they do things like this to clear it right up.

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

Ex-GOP rep. blasts his own party over racist Trump rallies: ‘Republicans are going to get wiped out in 2020’
Former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh warned his fellow party members on Thursday that they would "get wiped out in 2020" if they failed to denounce the racism seen at Trump rallies.
Walsh told CNN's Brianna Keilar that Trump voters who chanted "send her back" to Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) are full of "hatred."
"It’s ugly, it’s racist, it’s anti-American, and it ought to be denounced," Walsh said. "And Brianna, it should have been denounced by the president last night. But he’s not capable of it.
‘The president is lying’: Trump gets immediately debunked by CNN after claiming he stopped ‘send her back’ chant
President Donald Trump said Thursday that he stopped the North Carolina rally crowd from chanting "send her back" during a rant about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN). But CNN immediately called him out for the false claim.
"I didn’t like that they did it and I started speaking very quickly," Trump told the press. "Excuse me. Really? If you would have heard, there was a tremendous amount of noise and action and everything else. I started very quickly. And I think you know that. Maybe you’re giving me too much credit. You’re used to giving me too much credit. Thank you, everybody. I will try. I will certainly try, yes."
Trump’s racism isn’t a grand plan to win in 2020 — he’s just a ‘blithering idiot’: GOP strategist
President Donald Trump over the last week has made overtly racist attacks on four Democratic women of color, which has led to speculation that the president believes using racism is the key to winning reelection in 2020.
However, Republican strategist Stuart Stevens, who is currently working for Trump primary challenger Bill Weld, says it would be a mistake to confuse Trump's bigoted impulses with a well thought out battle plan.
"There is always this need to attribute this master plan to Trump because otherwise, you have to come to terms with the fact that he’s a blithering idiot," Stevens said in an interview with the Huffington Post.
