Thursday's HOT MIC
If you're not watching the weeping and gnashing of teeth on CNN right now over President Trump "ditching the climate deal" you are really missing out on some serious fun. Someone needs to take a valium-filled dart gun to Fareed Zakaria STAT—before he harms himself. Any minute I expect them to start running this on the split-screen:
The words they're using to describe the decision are hilarious: Sad. Disappointing. Irresponsible. Tribal. Terrible. Tragic. Nonsense. Uncertainty.
"I'm about to cry," lamented poor Van Jones.
Sen. Rand Paul made Jake Tapper look foolish in this debate about climate change and it was a beautiful thing to behold.
CNN keeps trying to hammer home the idea that so-called green jobs are outpacing jobs in the coal industry. But Zakaria just explained why that's happening: "Clean energy does require government subsidies right now," he admitted. Coal miners in Ohio and West Virginia should be so lucky.
