Here's a question for you good folks. Is it worse that the president of the United States:
a) Believes that global warming is a Chinese hoax and cold weather proves C02 is not heating the planet up (contrary to all scientific evidence).
b) Can't construct grammatically coherent sentences and hasn't mastered the use of capital letters?
Witness Donald Trump's latest tweeting atrocity:
Let's take a look at this more closely:
In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!
Never mind the fact that extreme cold in one part of the world has nothing to do with global temperatures as a whole, the incredibly difficult to follow tweet makes Sarah Palin sound like a literary genius. This, ladies and gentlemen, is how the mind of the President of the United States works.
The use of caps is most alarming as it gives the impression that Trump is attempting to follow standard rules of writing and grammar but is so lost in madness that he can't recall when to use them properly. Instead, Trump just throws them in randomly. Why the hell is "Global Warming" capitalized and "Country"? Are they slogans? Does he think "Country" is an actual country?
On the face of it, Trump's lack of belief in global warming is the most terrifying given the seriousness of climate change and the chaos it is creating (and yes, extreme cold is a feature of climate change), but is his mental state that should worry Americans the most. His latest tweet is yet another sign that Trump is quite seriously mentally ill and should be removed from office for the sake of his own psychological health -- and that of the country's.
