There's no shortage of others reasons why Donald Trump must be defeated in November, but this would make him unique among all other world leaders.

A close examination of the record has revealed that, if he were elected president, Donald Trump would be the only head of state on the entire planet that does not believe in climate change.

From the Associated Press:

The Sierra Club compiled public statements from the leaders of the 195 nations recognized by the State Department. An advance copy of the group's report, to be released Tuesday, was provided to The Associated Press.

In contrast to public statements by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee calling climate change a "con job" and a "myth," the leader of every U.S. ally urges action to reduce climate-warming carbon emissions, including Great Britain, Germany, France, Japan and Canada.

The Associated Press points out that even North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un believes in climate change. I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry about that, so I decided to laugh. Hysterically.

And speaking of hysterics, the Press also shared one of Trump's infamous tweets that made me recall one of my favorite Sean Hannity moments of all time.

"The entire country is FREEZING — we desperately need a heavy dose of global warming, and fast! Ice caps size reaches all time high," Trump tweeted during a 2014 blizzard.

It snowed. Where's the global warming?

    If global climate change is a “con job” and a “myth,” what’s melting Greenland’s ice cap? Do Santa’s reindeer have high fevers?

    Donald Trump is an aggressively ignorant man.

    “It’s cold and winter (right here where my precious snowflake self is) so global warming doesn’t exist.”

    Never mind that for half the planet it is summer, and it is damn hot.

    “In contrast to public statements by the presumptive Republican presidential nominee calling climate change a “con job” and a “myth,” the leader of every U.S. ally urges action to reduce climate-warming carbon emissions, including Great Britain, Germany, France, Japan and Canada”.

    Is this what the Right means by American exceptionalism?

    I know I’m repeating my self but if Trump wins somebody’s gonna need to change the setting.

  • it’s cold therefore Nyah nyah. We’re all sick of this one, aren’t we. Never mind that winters in the whole of North America used to be even colder and these supposed tough guys sound wussy when they say that
