He couldn’t be any more douchey if he tried.
President Barack Obama lit into GOP climate change skeptics in a speech tonight, delighting a crowd of 800 to 900 environmentalists in Washington’s Ronald Reagan Building.
He said Republicans in Congress are out of touch with the American public, who “don’t just say, ‘No, I don’t believe anything scientists say.’ Except — where? — in Congress. Folks will tell you climate change is a hoax or a fad or a plot — a liberal plot.”
Obama also took aim at Republicans for pleading ignorance on climate by saying they aren’t scientists.
“I’m not a doctor either, but if a bunch of doctors tell me that tobacco can cause lung cancer, then I’ll say, ‘OK.’ It’s not that hard,” said Obama, who drew loud applause at the League of Conservation Voters’ annual Capital Dinner.
