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.
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.”
President Trump, seen here preserving his bodily fluids.

A rare look inside the GOP’s women’s health caucus.
Not a hooter toter in sight. The irony obviously escapes them.

As cable networks give Trump a free hotel ad, I’ll note that the women’s bathrooms here have no hooks to hang your purse. Annoying! Sad!

This is well worth the thirteen plus minutes it takes to view it.
