John Cornyn Savaged Over Climate Change Tweet

In recent years, the Democrats have become the party of combating climate change, while some Republicans willingly deny the effect. This includes Donald Trump. When the Midwest experienced a 60 degree day in January, the President tweeted, “What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!”

Democrats have continued to raise the alarm on climate change on Twitter and during the debates. John Cornyn recently mocked a call to climate action from New York Senator Chuck Schumer. The Texas senator was then blasted on Twitter for his blase attitude on the issue.

Schumer’s tweet read, “July 2019 was the hottest month ever, of any month, on record. Climate change is the greatest threat facing our planet. It’s about our kids. It’s about our health. It’s about the future. We must act.” Cornyn simply responded, “It’s summer, Chuck.”

Washington Governor Jay Inslee is the Democratic candidate most focused on climate action. He replied to the Texas senator by writing, “It’s the climate crisis, John.”

Actress and activist, Patricia Arquette had a simple explanation. “Once more for those in the back- July 2019 was the HOTTEST MONTH EVER, OF ANY MONTH , ON RECORD. GET IT”, she wrote.  “It was the HOTTEST MONTH EVER on Record! Even though we have had many July’s before none have EVER been this hot.”

CNN Analyst Joe Lockhart had one of the strongest responses. The former White House comms director wrote, “You call yourself a leader and you can’t tell the difference between climate and weather. Are you that ignorant. Actually I think you’re not. It’s worse. You are willing to sacrifice the planet due to your devotion to corporations and Trump. You’re a disgrace.”
