Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon Sneer At Trump's 'Stunning' Climate Change Denial

In response to the polar vortex hitting the Midwest, Trump called for "Global Waming [sic]" to "come back fast."

CNN’s Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon mocked Donald Trump’s latest attempt to dismiss climate change on Tuesday after the president called for “Global Waming [sic]” to “come back fast.

In a tweet posted on Jan. 28, Trump appeared to suggest that climate change does not exist:

The two hosts questioned whether Trump’s latest attempt to undermine the science behind global warming was due to a lack of understanding or simply an appeal to his supporters. 

“He thinks that there is some raw value in being contrary,” Cuomo said. “That if you are against what ‘they’ say, that somehow you’re striking a blow for the regular guy.”

Trump has previously boasted that his ”very high levels of intelligence prevent him from believing in climate change. However, Lemon said it would “be stunning” for anyone with an education to refute “actual science and scientists.”

“Well, maybe he’s just playing to a crowd,“ Lemon said. “Maybe he’s just reading the room and he understands that his folks don’t want climate change to be real so he’s trying to reconfirm their beliefs already.”

Watch the pair dissect Trump’s latest tweet in the clip above.
