The Trump administrations view on the world. #Resist

So, there must be no droughts either, because it is rainy here today. Wow, solving the earth’s climate issues is easier than I thought…..
“What do you mean, ‘the Titanic is sinking’? My end of the ship is 500 feet in the air!”
Not so great news: the same guy who has ability to launch nuclear weapons of mass destruction can’t even refrain from calling people names.
One of the most pervasive and perverse holdovers of slavery is the idea that your boss should decide whether you are financially valuable enough to see a doctor when you get sick. We are the richest country in the world, but we have epidemics of mumps, measles, and plague because people we don’t care about still spread diseases we can catch.
I don’t care what Congress replaces this system with. I just want to remind them whom they work for, and who decides, under their system, whether their lives are valuable.
Minimum wage lives matter. 28 million Americans earn too much for Medicaid and too little to buy health insurance. Congress is opely debating whether to increase that number, or just keep it the same. Is Congress’ work valuable enough that you want to pay for them to see a doctor?
Constitutional Amendment: Stop Congress from using any health care beyond what they buy for the rest of us. https://t.co/Mk3VtX4H2s Please share.

Sir, do you feel that global warming is not occurring at all, that we don’t know enough about what’s causing it or that humans are the main cause of global warming?
Global warming is a sham, when it gets hot outside, I go inside and turn on my AC, not hot anymore.
This is why we can’t have nice things, like a planet to live on.
Sadly, I know people who also think this way… If it didn’t happen to them, then it is not real or relevant!
Top 5 reasons the right thinks global warming is a hoax:
1) it’s called weather!
2) Al Gore is a hypocrite who lives in a mansion and flies in a private jet
3) it’s just a scam to make the global elites wealthy at our expense
4) only God can change the climate
5) I was cold today
Colbert needs to dumb down his explanation a bit if he is to reach these people.
Think the biggest issue we face is fact is was called “global warming” initially. Because most people do not read or bother to inform themselves. Feel like the push to call it climate change instead has been affective but most people don’t understand the vast significance of a climate shift and our involvement in that shift. And frankly people are lazy and afraid of change and if it requires work or changing industries they don’t wanna deal with it.
Do you honestly think that the Trump administration doesn’t believe in global warming? Or do you think they take that stance in order to pander to their right-wing Christian voters?
I think one of the biggest contributors to climate change denial, is that our minds can’t accept something that has never actually happened to us before. The power of good fiction – in book and film -helps us empathize.
He’s so good. I love the conservative hatred for Colbert. He’s intelligent, biting and they can’t take it! Cannot process. Does not compute. Tastes terrible. Must spit out.
I know…I was cold last night…had to put on a long-sleeved shirt…..of course, the water in the yard is getting deeper, but no climate change, right? 😏😒😖
“Public lands are worthless because I want to privately profit from their naturally-occuring resources!”
At least he used the intellectually honest moniker “Global Warming” instead of the deceptive and worthless “Climate Change.”
Yeah, but taking jabs only makes you like them. Being informative is way more productive than calling people stupid. Some people just really don’t get it and putting them on the defensive only strengthens their opinions.
Global warming is too big to be real just like the banks are too big to fail. Never under estimate the ignorance of our elected leaders!!
If 97% of Structural engineers said a bridge over a canyon was about collapse, but 3% said it was OK. would you keep driving?
Colbert is funny, but the issue is far more complex. I now live in Texas, and it is beautiful. But as long as developers continue their quest to blacktop the whole damn state without adequate storm water management, there will be floods. Global climate change is just one of many factors. We need multiple solutions, including zoning, planning and engineering.
When Trump recently applied for permission to build sea defences around his golf course in Ireland, the reason he gave was “climate change”. So he clearly does believe in it when it suits him.
True…. I have a roof over my head, my kids go to a charter school and our nice kitchen is filled with the smells of food cooking..and I can sleep at night because I can pay my bills, Generally, people are blind and apathetic to the pain of survival for so many people and the planet.
Well when is everyone gonna get rid of their cars and air conditioners??? I bet all the same people who believe in man made climate change still drive to work stuck in traffic just like the people who dont. Just like when its hot they will turn the a/c on. So we can can slow down global warming by having those who believe in it stop their carbon footprint. Scientists say even a small change would help so lets start with the believers and see how the climate is different 50 years from now
Good idea… just implement mandatory, single-payer, non-profit, public sector universal coverage health care, and it would automatically apply to Congress and everyone else in the country. Most efficient, most inexpensive, most inclusive form of insurance there is.
the trump admin does believe in global climate change. what they dont believe is that it is affected by man. at least get your facts straight if youre going to post something like this.
Please donate your gas guzzling automobiles to me.. you can do your part to end global warming! Please stop eating as well as this contributes the most to greenhouse gasses. Oh yeah and when the hypocrites spouting this stuff stop pouring millions of pounds of carbon emissions into the atmosphere out of their own private jets, I will take them a little more serious
But it’s true! The people who go to bed hungry because they have no supper should just eat a big lunch. Oh, wasn’t it a terrible time to try the souls of men….
