After President Trump trolled the mainstream media via a tweet saying that the frozen East Coast could use, let me quote exactly, “a little bit of that good old global warming”, journalists and liberal pundits went completely bonkers. The POTUS’ tweet was aimed at both the now-defunct Paris climate accord and the snowy, even frigid weather which is currently blasting most of the US, yet the humorless left-wing corporate media just can’t take a joke at face value:
In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!

This innocent tweet sparked a furious response on social media and spawned a number of idiotic articles, which were trying to lecture the President about the differences between weather and the climate. The failing NYT’s reporters wrote a vitriolic piece describing President Trump as appearing to be unaware of the difference between climate and weather:
“Climate refers to how the atmosphere acts over a long period of time, while weather describes what’s happening on a much shorter time scale”
reads the New York Times masterpiece. With temperatures hitting record lows after Christmas in the Midwest and Great Plains, and millions of Americans suffering from the frigid weather, not to mention Northeasterners living in the vicinity of the Great Lakes that have been literally buried in the snow, a number of “liberal” columnists took the opportunity to lecture the public about how the recent cold spell is actual proof of man-made global warming.

This is what happens when you try to run the country without a science advisor.
The worst part of it is, as twisted and wrong as this tweet is, it’s exactly what resonates with his base. Poking fun at existential global problems in the sickest, most selfish way possible. https://t.co/OX9Xd77TD4

The president does not know the difference between climate and weather.

However, the same journalists routinely use severe weather events, such as hurricanes, to bolster their own ideas on climate change/global warming or whatchamacallit. As always with these people, if it is hotter than usual, then it is Global Warming. If it is colder than usual, it is weather.
Trump does have a sense of humor. The left has no sense of humor at all. The MSM confuse climate and weather at their convenience, while lambasting those who disagree with them for doing the same. This is called hypocrisy and more commonly today “fake news.”
