President Donald Trump, a man who believes cold weather disproves the theory of climate change, granted an ITV interview on Sunday to Piers Morgan.
Trump, who is not only not a scientist, but has convinced himself he is smarter than all of them,—none of those nerds are the president!—offered up some of his famous rambling diatribes on why climate change is a hoax, or the planet is actually cooling, or something. He said:
