The Presidential Brain

See Mr. Trump.

See Mr. Trump talk to the Washington Post (even though he hates the Washington Post).

See Mr. Trump make a fool of himself talking to the Washington Post when pontificating about the environment and climate change, doing so days after his own administration issued a report saying climate change is real and is causing serious harm.

“One of the problems that a lot of people like myself, we have very high levels of intelligence but we’re not necessarily such believers,” Trump said during a freewheeling 20-minute Oval Office interview with The Washington Post in which he was asked why he was skeptical of the dire National Climate Assessment his administration released Friday.


“You look at our air and our water and it’s right now at a record clean.

Well, what with that “very high level of intelligence” and the assertion that our environment is “right now at a record clean,” whatever the hell that means, perhaps we should just close the book entirely on environmental issues and climate change.
