First, Jerry Brown having a tin foil hat epic meltdown.
Brown said California will push back against trump’s efforts to stop or reverse policies fighting global climate change.
“We’ve got the scientists, we’ve got the lawyers and we’re ready to fight,” Brown told the applauding audience.
“If Trump turns off the satellites, California will launch its own damn satellite,” roared Brown to the crowd.
And referring to Rick Perry, the former Texas governor Trump has selected to lead the Department of Energy, Brown reminded everyone of California’s advantages over Texas when it comes to renewable energy.
“We’ve got more sun than you’ve got oil,” he said.
Brown, who during the presidential campaign joked that if Trump was elected, “we’d have to build a wall around California to defend ourselves from the rest of this country,” called Trump a “fraud.”
And Chuck forgets about Obama’s hashtags that were supposed to bring world peace or something; such as “#UnitedforUkraine” and “#BringBackOurGirls.”
Schumer’s speech, which was hailed by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer for its toughness, laid out an opposition agenda that included holding Trump accountable for promises to change Washington. And Schumer warned Trump that Twitter would not suffice:
So, Mr. President, the issues facing this country are many. We have a lot of work to do — creating jobs, raising incomes, making college and health care affordable, rebuilding our infrastructure, making trade laws work for the American worker, keeping Americans safe from threats of violence and terrorism, taking care of our vets. Now, each one takes serious thought and action. These issues are too important for mere words, our challenges too entrenched for mere tweeting. Making America great again requires more than 140 characters per issue. With all due respect, America cannot afford a Twitter presidency. We have real challenges and we have real needs to get things done. Many Americans are afraid, Mr. President-elect, that instead of rolling up your sleeves and forging serious policies, for you, Twitter suffices. There’s nothing wrong with using Twitter to speak to the American people. It’s a good use of modern media. But these issues are complex and demand both careful consideration and action. We cannot tweet them away.
Later, Schumer added: “America doesn’t conduct foreign policy by Tweet.”
And I’m sorry, but wasn’t one of the complaints against McCain when he ran for president that he didn’t know how to use social media? I agree, Trump needs to get one of his staffers to take over his social media accounts, but come on libs. Make up your mind.
Either way, quit your incessant whining. We survived – barely – eight years of Obama. Now suck it up because it’s your turn to hang on.
