Whenever Republicans are caught doing something they don’t want to admit, they accuse someone else of doing the same thing. The current term for this seems to be “normalizing deviant behavior.”
This time, they (through the EPA) are accusing climate scientists of politicizing Hurricane Harvey when Republicans are the ones who have used climate change and other issues to divide, conquer and create chaos in the United States.
Candidate Donald Trump and then President Trump pandered to the Republican base and withdrew the U.S. from the Paris Accords on Climate Change to the derision of the rest of the world. Thanks, guys. Go spend your time passing a budget that doesn’t include you and me paying for the Mexican wall, either directly or by cutting Medicaid and Medicare.
