Celebs mock Donald Trump after climate tweet

U.S. President Donald TrumpU.S. President Donald Trump has put his foot, or his phone, rather, in his mouth yet again after tweeting about how the frigid East Coast could use some Global Warming to heat things up.

He tweeted: “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!”

Indeed, parts of the U.S. and most of Canada (yesterday, Ottawa was named the coldest capital on Earth!) are experiencing a serious cold snap this winter.

But some scientifically-informed celebs aren’t laughing at Trump’s dig at the validity of climate change, citing that climate change means extreme weather, which includes swings in both directions of the thermometer.

Many took to their own Twitter accounts to call out Trump for what they think is his obvious ignorance regarding the issue (note: Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Agreement, making the country the only one not signed up with fighting the changing climate and the impact it’s having on our environment).

In addition to the usual name-calling, some celebrities also point to articles written by scientific authorities on climate change.

Check out some of their tweets below! ~Alexa Caruso

    It’s a sad day for America – the land of extremes both in weather and politics. It would be great if their president would read a science book once in a while – like take a time out from tweeting.

    OMG,WHAT HAVE THE AMERICANS DONE,ELECTED A GUY WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HEs DOING,A DANGER TO THE WORLD,JUST AS BAD OR WORSE THAN THE IDIOT IN NORTH KOREA,IMAGINE HIM HAVING THE FINAL SAY TO PRESS NUCLEAR BUTTON,GOD HELP THE FREE WORLD.

    WOW! These stupid Liberal are really stupid. It USED to be called Global Warming and their prophet, Al Gore said New York would be underwater because of GLOBAL WARMING. Now they are moving the goal posts. lol I am really amazed at the utter stupidity in Hollywood.

    The political scientists have been so wrong in their predictions of the affects of global warming and fudging numbers to fit their agenda.So until somebody can convince me to the contrary Im going with my opinion that global warming is cyclular and not unduly affected by human activity

    Trump might understand climate change in greater detail if he could get evidence past his head, but that would require a Plexiglas window in his stomach to see thru. Inserting a new idea like evidence or logic between his ears would be like throwing a pork chop in the back yard.

    Best tweet of the year by Trump. These so called experts called it Global Warming, then the weather does not go their way; so they change it to climate change! Just a huge liberal tax grab scam, glad Trump sees through it.

    The fact that ice has been melting for 1000’s of yrs yep it has to be due to the consumption of fossil fuels. The fact that all life outside of chlorophyll plants expel carbon dioxide yep life is indeed horrible and must be controlled and destroyed. Next the libtards will install taxes/limits on having kids because humans are bad (they do it in China). What a complete fked up ideology. Yep indeed science knows everything and always does because after all a 100 yrs ago doctors were prescribing cancer sticks to people with asthma and lung cancer also. The fact that colleges and universities get grants from certain organizations and companies to present data a certain way indeed does not play a factor or the fact that governments are always coming up with another ponzi scheme to tax and take away your money does not play a factor. Nope a gov’t propaganda arm (like CBC) paid for by taxes would never present “facts” with an ulterior motive. The gullibility of people in here is mind blowing.

    Thank Goodness SOME common sense and intelligence showed up here! Quite relieved to see as I was scanning through the brainwashed reactives dissing the POTUS for being on track. NewsFlash Lefties: CLIMATE CHANGES – and has experienced EXTREMES well before humans arrived. Chelsea Handler is a foul-mouthed fool – but she knows Science, yeah right. – about as much as Bill Nye. For someone who somehow passed as a comedian all these years, she sure can’t recognise a joke. I find it funny these are the same people who believe gender is a ‘social construct’ – truly denying real biology. SMH. I cant’ even.

  10. Noe Names • December 30, 2017 @ 12:31 AM

    My God you Dump fans are just as f’ing stupid as your P.O.S. PODUS. Bunch of brain dead yuppies the whole lot of you. It truly is ironic that you call everyone who is against Dump a snowflake, and yet you’re all the ones all over social media letting the whole world know how upset you are that someone was said about that blonde goof.
    Dump is a joke and so is everyone who thinks he is the best thing to happen to America. It’s no wonder the whole world things America is a joke when you got people like this idiot in charge and people support him.

    Genius has it’s limits but stupid ,like this President has no limits , who the hell was as stupid as him to vote for him ????

  12. hendry • December 30, 2017 @ 4:04 AM

    might be it is time to ask the clown to take time to go back to school to take a new course weather101? or climate-change 101? or perhaps Global Warming 101?

  13. Jason • December 30, 2017 @ 6:37 AM

    1- Trump is stuck in old verbiage, the term shifted from Global Warming to Climate Change to represent shifts in either direction.
    2- Even NASA supports Climate Change. Last checked, they were not celebs and have some clout around the world.
    3- I grew up in the prairies of Canada and 30 years ago, you couldn’t last 2 hours on Halloween due to the cold and mountains of snow. In recent years, I didn’t even need a jacket taking my kid out and snow is more patchy.
    4- Wells went dry on family farms this year.
    5- Near record rains in other parts of the country and the world.
    6- To think we have ZERO impact on the earth with a population that has doubled since (to use a celeb reference) Al Pacino starred in The Godfather (1972), is beyond ignorant.

    I’m hearing a lot of disrespectful smart ass comments coming from your President “oh, haven’t you heard, it’s chilly down here, we could use some of that global warming down here to warm things up!” Your President’s words, not mine, and he is disrespecting you, the American people. Many of you are rising to the occasion and wonder, “Who voted this idiot in? He can barely string two sentences together let alone run a country!” Sadly fellas, it’s not a case of who voted him in, it’s a case of who didn’t vote. 49% of the American voters didn’t show up to the polls because, “They didn’t like their options!” No you have have him!!!! The guy who thinks he can make America great again by make you all the laughing stock of the world! YES! Other countries really are thinking, “Who is this guy? We are embarrassed for him?!!”

    Climate change is frightening; we are too. We need to do a better job supporting an intelligent conversation. When climate, jobs, education, healthcare, etc.,worsen, we are able to reason that these are consequences from very specific decisions Trump, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell wittingly make. When other “more liberal” folks follow with disenfranchising decisions we need to call them out as well. Freedom in our democratic republic is in danger. It’s a consequence of our own divisiveness. Understanding the value of democracy and how we keep it is critical. History has shown us (again and again) that division of the people in democracies plays to the benefit of big money. Dismissal of meaningful dialogue promotes tyranny. Let’s be wise enough to have intelligent/welcoming conversation. I am not talking about watering down the truth or avoiding the real and essential concerns of our time. I believe in that old chant: “The people united, will never be defeated.” Let’s drain our own swamp.

  16. Sigs • December 30, 2017 @ 2:22 PM

    Ha ha ha….celebrities are adorable aren’t they? Actually NASA has stated that we are, in fact, entering into a global cooling period (not warming). They have claimed that one of the main impacts is a reduction of solar impact (sun spots). Yes folks it’s hard to believe, but most things don’t behave in a linear manner even the sun’s solar output. So what is this debate about anyhow? Global warming? It has been explicit in claiming global temperatures rising. No? I don’t believe there is anyone that disputes the cyclical nature of climate, but there has not been one OBJECTIVE scientific study that has been able to legitimately quantify the human impact on the climate. Not one! Governments sure as heck control the economies of the world, so why would people naively assume they could control the climate? #MAGA

    Clebs….you mean Hollywood where All the Pedophiles and
    Rapists hide out LoL
    We Love Trump because You Hate him 🙂

  18. tlj • December 30, 2017 @ 11:52 PM

    This like a lot of other things that liberals come up with, doesn’t fly. Years dinosaurs ruled the world and it was lot hotter then than it is now. Went on a cruise to the glaciers in Alaska two years ago and the park warden told us that the ice fields and the glaciers have begun expanding again, hmmm global change in reverse? As far as the scientist, if you don’t agree with global warming you can’t get a grant to prove otherwise. mother nature will look after herself whether we like it or not.

  19. Shawn • December 31, 2017 @ 9:50 AM

    wow, so sad the ‘celebrities’ take all this time to teach us knuckle draggers. like they had any credibility in the first place. maybe the celebrities should just go back to molesting each other instead.

  20. Patsy • December 31, 2017 @ 1:24 PM

    We won. You lost. Get over it. The Pres is doing great things!!

  21. Snepts • January 1, 2018 @ 4:05 AM

    Yes Patsy, thanks to Santa Trump, white supremacists aren’t feeling marginalized this year…

  22. Joseph Pedulla • January 1, 2018 @ 12:29 PM

    So now global warming INCLUDES global freezing? Wow. Will liberal wonders never cease? Has anyone in this country heard, even a single time, that global warming also means COLD temperatures? We’re all supposed to believe that this has been the understanding all along? Has anyone read 1984? This is a page right out of that book. In 1984 there is no truth. I should say there’s no way to determine what is true, because the purported facts that the press keeps printing for public consumption keep changing–often into their own opposites! On Monday the news will be “Oceania is at war with East Asia.” But by Friday? “Oceania is at war with Eurasia.” And the job of the main character, Winston Smith, is to keep changing these stories back and forth at the whim of the government. The result is that the public never knows what the truth actually is. It seems the Lefties have been plagiarizing. Monday: “Global Warming is HEATING the planet.” Friday: “Global Warming is FREEZING US.” What’s next?

  23. AKT • January 1, 2018 @ 4:01 PM

    There legions of scientists the world over who have nothing to do with Hollywood who are ringing the alarm bells about climate change. The name shift from “global warming” to “climate change” happened several years ago, when the extreme weather patterns started showing up: so-called “100 year storms”, occurring every few years, category 5 hurricanes becoming common, forest fires that become raging infernos, ice melting in the arctic to the point where polar bears are starving to death because the environment is changing so drastically and quickly that they can’t adapt quickly enough…there are so many example of extreme weather, that to attribute the term change from global warming to climate change because of the US President’s latest tweet is being wilfully ignorant. Whether you believe science, believe the evidence that extreme weather is occurring more and more, and the burning of fossil fuels is the culprit, or whether you think that humans couldn’t possibly be responsible for the destruction of the environment we are seeing around us, the truth is here. The fires are burning, the tornadoes, the hurricanes, the flooding…they are coming to us all. Eventually, we will see. Eventually we will take the measures to save ourselves and the planet. And it has not a thing to do with whether you are liberal, conservative, from Hollywood, or from wherever. The truth is the truth. And we will have to deal with it. One good start for dealing with it? Being polite to each other. The rudeness of some of the comments was unnecessary. Not only unnecessary, but a contributing factor, on both sides, to the kind of polarity and division that is tearing up the world. We can each decide to be polite, to listen to opinions that we don’t necessarily agree with, with respect and kindness. It starts with us.

    Why do we keep throwing billions of dollars at so called climate change-there have always been weather pattern changes-first of all I’m not sure it can all be changed no matter what we do and I along with many others aren’t at all sure the validity or reality of it and secondly those dollars that may not change a thing could be put to much better use such as helping the poor/the homeless and helping to create jobs and improve the economy-if we don’t have enough to provide for our families and provide financially for a decent existence first of all what the hell difference does throwing all this money at (so called) climate change really make-we are missing the most important thing which is taking care of our own and this means the economy should be the main focus

  25. Snepts • January 2, 2018 @ 2:00 AM

    Funny thread!

  26. Gemma • January 4, 2018 @ 10:33 PM

    This is hilarious. Hollywood wouldn’t know what Global Warming means. Leonardo Di Caprio was in Alberta filming his last terrible movie in the summer and on a talk show commented how bad global warming was in Alberta Canada , what he was experiencing were the shoonuk Winds that are regular occur out West. made an ass of himself on the show. Like all uneducated Hollywood ignoramuses they think they are smarter than the most. Before they open their mouths they should get info on what they want to protest before embarrasing themselves by proving what little they do know.
