Trump supporters have shown how intelligent they are by falling for something incredibly obvious that my 5-year-old niece was able to spot it.
The GOP has been all over the board this week when reacting to the hurricanes.
Historically, the right has been full of climate change deniers. They’ll talk about how they won’t believe something because they haven’t seen enough evidence but then scoff at any evidence that’s given.
For example, let’s look at Trump’s recent pick for running NASA, as observed by Liberal Examiner’s Maya Lora:
“Trump has nominated Representative Jim Bridenstine to lead the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Never heard of him? Neither has the science community. And the real catch? He wants America to go back to the moon, but, more importantly, he’s a climate change denier.
Trump’s pick to head NASA wants Americans to return to the moon, but doesn’t think humans cause climate change. https://t.co/n2NabHf3Tx

You would think running NASA, the home base for our efforts in science and to understand a world beyond ourselves, would require a formal science-based education, but not for Trump. I’m pretty sure taking AP Biology makes me more qualified to run NASA than Bridenstine at this point, who has done nothing but be an executive director for the local Tulsa Air and Space Museum.”
But, things may start looking up for those who understand what’s going on in the world, since some of those in the GOP finally seem to be waking up.
Sen. John McCain, however, has been taking a more rational approach. When he was a guest on Jake Tapper’s “State of the Union” segment on CNN, he challenged Trump on quite a few topics such as the budget, immigrants, and climate change.
“There is things happening with the climate in the world that is unprecedented,” McCain stated after being asked why Republicans were climate change deniers.
But not every conservative is being so smart about it, some of Trump’s supporters are not only sticking their fingers in their ears when it comes to climate change, but they think the bloated president is actually getting his hands dirty and making a difference.
What’s Happening Now:
Trump supporters have made an image of Trump wading through flood waters to rescue cats go viral, claiming that their president is actually making a difference.
Now, while I love cats as much as the next guy, there’s a little problem with their photo.
If people are really dumb enough to think that Trump is that fit, we may want to start looking at ways of restricting voting to those over a certain IQ level.
In fact, the president really hasn’t done anything except slow down the process for photo ops.

And Twitter users aren’t being fooled:
This is a publicity stunt. This isn’t doing anything meaningful. “Here hand him a box so he can load it up and make sure you get a picture.”

I bet not wasting taxpayers money to get a photo-op.

Stop recording 5 min of him doing something. He’s just like Pence! They just want a pic then they leave.
