When Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) on Sunday announced her intention to challenge Trump in 2020, it was in the middle of a snowstorm in Minnesota.
The president’s response was typical: He made an unfunny “joke” about global warming, writing that Klobuchar was “talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice, and freezing temperatures” and then comparing the senator’s appearance at the end of her speech to a “Snowman(woman)!”
Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!

Trump’s tweet evoked fiery replies from hundreds, including one from Klobuchar herself who wrote, “Science is on my side,” before roasting the president’s appearance: “Looking forward to debating you about climate change (and many other issues). And I wonder how your hair would fare in a blizzard?”
But a notable clap back came from Captain America himself, who challenged the president’s refusal to acknowledge global warming as the serious threat it truly poses.
“Either you STILL don’t understand that weather is not climate despite literally everyone explaining it to you every time you tweet this ignorance, or you just don’t care, and you’re deliberately misleading your base,” actor Chris Evans tweeted at Trump, before asking: “Which is it?”

“Both,” came the resounding reply on Twitter.
All of the above.

I’m glad the likes on this tweet are on track to surpass the likes of the original tweet. Gives me hope that intelligence will prevail eventually.

This wasn’t the first Trump was taken to task by Captain America, and we certainly hope it won’t be the last.
You reckless moron. Do you have any idea what you're encouraging? You think a 'joke' makes it ok?? ZERO societal awareness and understanding https://t.co/7a3Qf3bOcP
