Mike Pence Makes a Fool Out of Himself with Absurd Climate Change Comment (Video)

While I know it’s popular for many on the left to talk about impeaching Donald Trump, I’ve cautioned these folks to be careful what they wish for. I’ll be the first to admit that Trump’s completely awful and has absolutely no business being this nation’s “president,” but it’s not as if the person who’d likely replace him, Mike Pence, is any better.

In fact, I could argue that Pence is worse than Trump. Not only has Pence defended and lied for a man I think even he knows is completely unfit for office, but he’s a batshit crazy religious radical who once said smoking doesn’t cause cancer, the Disney cartoon Mulan was liberal propaganda to get women to join the military, doesn’t believe in climate change, and thinks homosexuals can be “cured.”

When it comes to choosing the “lesser of two evils” between Trump and Pence, it really is like trying to decide which disgusting, rancid bag of trash you want to serve up for dinner — there’s no good option.

For example, a recent interview on Fox & Friends where Pence seemed rather confounded as to why so many people care about combating climate change.

“For some reason or another, this issue of climate change has emerged as a paramount issue for the left in this country and around the world,” Pence said. “And through Kyoto, through President Obama’s cap-and-trade agenda, and then through the, in the last year of his administration to have America saddled in an international agreement in the Paris accord, I think put a real burden on our economy and our people. It was a bad deal for America.”

The stupidity of that comment is astounding.

First, a total of 195 nations agreed to the Paris climate accord, so let’s not act as if this was just a few countries pushing some “leftist agenda” — it was nearly the entire damn planet.

Then I love the argument that the economy somehow matters more than saving the Earth. I’m sorry, but if it’s a choice between protecting a few jobs in the fossil fuel industry that are helping render this planet unsuitable for life, or protecting it for the advancement and survival of the human race, I’m going to choose saving the planet every single time. Here’s a little secret: do you know what the ultimate “economic killer” would be?

A planet on which humans can no longer survive!

Furthermore, clean energy jobs have surpassed fossil fuel employment. Meaning that there are more jobs in green energy than outdated, and toxic, fossil fuels. So Pence’s argument about the economy isn’t even factual.

However, without a doubt, the most idiotic part of his statement was where he seems confused as to why saving our planet is such a “paramount issue for the left in this country and around the world.” How much of a moron does someone really need to be for them to not understand why saving the planet would be a “paramount” issue for, you know, practically every country on Earth, and the majority of the people living on it.

When it comes down to the issue of climate change, it really is the majority of the Republican Party vs.:

  • The majority of humans living on Earth.
  • Over 97 percent of the world’s scientists.
  • NASA.
  • Pretty much every other country on the planet.

Yet these clowns have the nerve to act like they’re on the right side of this issue.

This is why I’ve said, as much as I loathe Donald Trump and would love to see him out of office, it’s not as if things are going to drastically improve for this country if that happens before 2020. As Mike Pence proved with this one statement, and the fact that he’s defended and supported Trump in the first place, if he ever does become president, he’s going to be just as bad – if not worse on some levels – than the idiot currently occupying the Oval Office.

    Pence is another Ted Cruz: a religious fanatic who would rule according to the insane commands in the buybull. The American Taliban, indeed.
