John Oliver on Trump, Texas, and Yes, Climate Conspiracy Theories
March 7, 2016
UPDATE: Found a working link for the video, for now.
Just fyi, nsfw.
Pretty hard for the GOP to disavow nut jobs who talk about their penis size and claim climate science is a conspiracy, when that is exactly the position of their front running candidate.
In the case of the climate/conspiracy, actually the position of the top two candidates, with the others basically just in denial.
It’s apalling, of course, and one hopes that moderate, sensible people in the GOP are as horrified as normal people – but my question is, if you’ve hung in for the last 15 years on this evolving horror show – do you really have capacity for independent thought and moral outrage?
