Like a game of MadLibs, President Donald Trump shouted about China when he was asked whether he believed that global warming was real.

As the president left for a campaign event in Pennsylvania, reporters shouted questions, including inquiries about his meeting with officials in California on Monday. Trump got into an exchange with California Secretary for Natural Resources Wade Crowfoot, who suggested one of the problems causing the massive wildfires in the state was global climate change.

“It’ll start getting cooler. You just watch,” said Trump about the weather, which is different from climate.

“I wish science agreed with you,” said Crowfoot.

“I don’t think science knows, actually,” Trump claimed.

Trump wouldn’t say if he believes the science on climate change or not. Instead, he proclaimed, “Well, I think you have people that don’t want to address China.”

It harkens back to the early days of Trump’s campaign when he blamed China for starting the “hoax” of climate change.

Trump has also blamed forest management for the huge wildfires hurting California this season. While experts believe it is a small factor, they also explain that the temperatures in California reached the hottest every observed in the state over months and droughts in part of the state persist. Lightning storms also moved through the state, igniting dry brush as well. The human factor was also the cause of at least one fire after a “gender reveal photo-op” went horribly wrong.

Fox News analyst slams Trump for visit to Ginsburg’s casket: ‘Maybe it’s to get the boos’

Published

on

Fox News analyst Chris Stirewalt was bewildered on Thursday after President Donald Trump showed up at the Supreme Court to pay his respects to former Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

As Trump appeared next to Ginsburg's casket, the crowd could be heard jeering the president.

"I don't know why he went," a confused Stirewalt said. "He didn't go to John Lewis' memoriam. He wasn't there for that stuff. And for good reason. Right? These people don't want him there. Ruth Bader Ginsburg's folks don't want him there. It's going to be an ugly scene."

"I guess, he's the president. He can go where ever he wants," the Fox News contributor added. "And he has security so that he can go do it. But you just wonder what the political calculation was here in going to a place where you know you will be received poorly, going to a place where you know the folks there don't want you to be."

BUSTED: ‘Real people’ in pro-Trump Facebook testimonials are actually Republican operatives

Published

on

On Thursday, Gizmodo revealed that many of the Trump supporters identified as "real people whose lives have been positively impacted by President Trump’s policies" in the president's Facebook ads are actually Republican candidates and operatives.

"Take this ad that is currently running on Facebook," reported Matt Novak. "It shows Kim Sherk, who’s not identified by name in the ad, and yet is the president of the Georgia Federation of Republican Women. A Georgia newspaper, the Marietta Daily Journal recognized Sherk, which might be why these ads are running in states like California, Illinois, and Mississippi, according to the Facebook ad library, rather than her home state of Georgia ... the ad never identifies Sherk as a political operative, let alone one who’s visited the White House, as we can see from a photo posted to the Cobb County Republican Party website."

President spins baseless conspiracy theory about Trump ballots found in a trash can

Published

on

President Donald Trump baselessly claimed six ballots cast for him had been found in a trash can, as part of his ongoing efforts to undermine confidence in the election.

The president appeared on Fox Radio with host Brian Kilmeade, who tried to help him clean up his refusal to accept the peaceful transfer of power if he lost November's election.

"You created some news, as usually do," Kilmeade said. "One thing you said, when asked about if you lose the election, will you accept the result. You said, 'Well, we're going have to see what happens, you know, I've been complaining very strongly about the ballots, the ballots are disaster.' Many think you are saying if you do lose, you'll never, ever leave. That's now what you're saying."
