Proving that he’s better with money than science, Donald Trump today said that Al Gore should be stripped of his Nobel Peace Prize because of the recent record-breaking snowstorms on the east coast.
The billionaire tycoon made the foolish remarks while giving a speech before 500 people during a business conference at Trump National Golf Club in Westchester, New York.
“With the coldest winter ever recorded, with snow setting record levels up and down the coast, the Nobel committee should take the Nobel Prize back from Al Gore.”
He added: “Gore wants us to clean up our factories and plants in order to protect us from global warming, when China and other countries couldn’t care less. It would make us totally non-competitive in the manufacturing world, and China, Japan and India are laughing at America’s stupidity.”
Trump obviously isn’t up to date with his science — as many articles have been published in the wake of the snowstorms explaining that such events do not disprove climate change — and may even be caused by it.
As one commenter on the HuffingtonPost put it, “Because everybody knows that the word “global” is defined solely by what happens in the U.S.”
