These people have an excuse for everything!
In a recent interview with ABC, Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) blasted President Trump after he criticized them for having poor “forest management” in Washington, Oregon and California due to the recent wildfires.
According to Breitbart, Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked about Trump’s criticism and said, “Is that contributing to this, Senator Merkley?”
Merkley responded, “You know, the president has said it’s all about raking the forest, it’s just a big and devastating lie. We have the Cascades snowpack have gotten smaller, our forest have gotten dryer, our ocean has gotten warmer and more acidic, this has been happening steadily over the last several decades. These are consequences of warming planet that have huge impacts, huge impacts on rural America, with our forest, with our farming, with our fishing. This should not be red or blue, or rural or urban, is devastating to everyone. Just on COVID, we need to have a president who follows the science. We need to have a president that follows the science on global warming.”
