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.

Trump says he was worried that Jared Kushner or Mike Lee was ‘Anonymous’

President Donald Trump attacked the "Anonymous" White House official that attacked him in a New York Times op-ed and in an extensive tell-all book.

Former Homeland Security official Miles Taylor came out on Wednesday, saying officially that he was "Anonymous."

At the Phoenix Goodyear Airport, Trump told a rally crowd that Taylor was a "sleaze bag" and "This guy, in my opinion, should be prosecuted." Trump didn't seem to know what crime it was Taylor committed, but he still wanted to see the former official prosecuted for something.

Trump confessed that he was worried it was someone like "Hope Hicks, Jared Kushner, Mike Lee, or Rand Paul" who were secretly attacking him from the inside.

Federal judge compares pro-Trump robocall scammers to the KKK in furious order

On Wednesday, a U.S. District Judge tore into pro-Trump activists Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, who have been charged with crimes for sending intimidating robocalls to discourage people from voting in Ohio and Michigan.

The calls falsely told voters that casting a mail-in ballot would help debt collectors locate them and police enforce outstanding warrants against them. Wohl and Burkman, who have been implicated in a number of previous half-baked schemes, face up to 18 and a half years in prison for telecommunications fraud and bribery.

Trump ‘will not implement those policies’ he promises: Ex-Homeland Security official tells evangelical voters

Former Homeland Security official Elizabeth Neumann notoriously resigned from her position after she witnessed political decisions being made about the COVID-19 pandemic over scientific ones.

After the announcement that former official Miles Taylor was the "Anonymous" author behind the New York Times op-ed and the book attacking President Donald Trump, Neumann said she wasn't aware that "Anonymous" was Taylor. However, she said that the one thing they both have in common is their mutual focus on "the truth" that she said the American people deserve to know.

Like Taylor, Neumann explained that the "adults" in the White House are largely gone and that there are few left willing to stand up to Trump.
