If he’s so damn impressed with the swept floors of the forests of Finland someone tell him about their healthcare system.

Duh

From the Washington Post:

 It took a giant laurel oak puncturing her roof during Hurricane Florence last month for Margie White to consider that perhaps there was some truth to all the alarm bells over global warming.

“I always thought climate change was a bunch of nonsense, but now I really do think it is happening,” said White, a 65-year-old Trump supporter, as she and her young grandson watched workers haul away downed trees and other debris lining the streets of her posh seaside neighborhood last week, just as Hurricane Michael made landfall 700 miles away in the Florida Panhandle.

It’s In the Genes, Except When It’s Not

Trump on climate change, from his AP interview:

AP: But scientists say this is nearing a point where this can’t be reversed.

Trump: No, no. Some say that and some say differently. I mean, you have scientists on both sides of it. My uncle was a great professor at MIT for many years. Dr. John Trump. And I didn’t talk to him about this particular subject, but I have a natural instinct for science, and I will say that you have scientists on both sides of the picture.

Say What?

Homeland Security adviser Tom Bossert today on CNN:

He said the Trump administration was mindful of predictions of future floods, and doesn’t want federal dollars used to rebuild structures that will come under increasing threat from rising sea levels.

“We continue to take seriously climate change — not the cause of it, but the things that we observe,” Bossert said.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In other words, we recognize it’s happening, but we refuse to recognize why.

This is like the cigarette companies acknowledging people got lung cancer after years of smoking but it couldn’t possibly have been because of their product.

Paging Dr. Strangelove

President Trump reportedly eschews exercise because he believes it drains the body’s “finite” energy resources, but experts say this argument is flawed because the human body actually becomes stronger with exercise.

Trump’s views on exercise were mentioned in a New Yorker article this month and in “Trump Revealed,” The Washington Post’s 2016 biography of the president, which noted that Trump mostly gave up athletics after college because he “believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted.”

Quote from “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb”:

I can no longer sit back and allow Communist infiltration, Communist indoctrination, Communist subversion and the international Communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.”
