The best part about this is the President has taken goading Donald Trump as a personal hobby of his.

Donald, if you haven't figured it out're never ever going to be able to humiliate Obama like he humiliated you. Just cut your losses.

Or don't. Keep on going. It's amusing to watch.

Dear Donald the Patriotic Merkin,

China did not invent global warming. China has only been an economic power of any consequence since, say, 2000 plus or minus five years.

The Rio Conference took place before China found it could profit from offset schemes created by Europe.

Global warming was already a big government and public issue back in the Eighties--I know because I worked at Environment Canada for a while and they already had old outdated pamphlets explaining what the Canadian Government was supposedly going to do about it.

The CO2 series produced by Al Gore's climate change mentor in the 1950s had already established the basis for global climate change concerns before I was born.

John Callendar, a climatologist of the 1940s already believed the globe was warming, but was not alarmed as like many nineteenth century scientists, he felt the world could use a bit of warming.

In May, 1859, the year the Charles Darwin was forced to reluctantly publish a curtailed version of The Origin of the Species, the great Irish scientist John Tyndale (they named a major climate centre after him) did experiments in the basement labs of the Royal Society to establish how much various global warming gases, such as CO2 and water vapour, actually warm the atmosphere. Scientists thus had a firm grip on climate change basics before Darwinism became the rage among biologists.

In the 1830s, Joseph Fourier coined the term "greenhouse effect". He did not fully understand how it works, and his term. "l'effet de serre" was a bit of a misnomer since greenhouses merely trap warm air under glass rather than heat it. But there it was in ovo, the theory of global warming.

In short, the Chinese did not invent global warming. In fact, they barely acknowledged it. They certainly aren't goinig to go out of their way to stop it unless the West acknowledges that it has produced most of the greenhouse gases and other climate changing factors (such as deforestation) and that the poorer nations (such as China) have every right to become as rich as the rich nations, by doing what the rich nations did and are still doing, so long as their is no agreement to compensate the poorer nations and help them to become rich without carbon.

In short, the Chinese are not stupid, which is at least one advantage they have on climate change denialists and their dupes.

Sincerely yours, Brantgoose

P.S. Donald the Patriotic Merkin would be a good name for one of those fake children's books that satirists love to write. Sorry, I have no time to read or write. I'm too busy on the web reading and writing.

Is this like the time on David Letterman that Trump said we had to elect Mitt Romney because of his tough stance on China and Barack Obama was doing nothing to protect American jobs from China and then after the commercial break, we found out that Trump's line of ties are made in China?

Because that must have been embarrassing.

My favorite part about that Donald tweet was that he didn't even wait for the west coast polls to close yet. He called the neck and neck popular vote before CA, WA, and OR had a chance to total. A foolish man.

stealthd: Lennavan. He said: the nation chose another leader. And so Ann and I join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation.

Fair enough, lets add even more context:

I ran for office because I''m concerned about America.... I so wish that I had been able to fulfill your hopes to lead the country in a different direction, but the nation chose another leader, and so Ann and I join with you to earnestly pray for him and for this great nation.

I'm concerned about America [and the direction Obama is taking it] I so wish I had been able to lead the country in a different direction but lost, so pray for him and this country.

This is not a "lets join together with him" moment. This is a "we lost, so the best we can do now is pray he changes his mind."

If Donald Trump really annoys you, try humming "Send in the Clowns" and remind yourself that a parade is nothing without clowns. It's one of the places where they are least scary.

Isn't he rich?
Isn't he queer?
Losing his timing this late in his career?
Where is the Clown?
There ought to be Clown.
Wait, he's already here!

PsyLord: I think the "hair" is growing into his brain.

That's how hair works. It's a parasitic organism that feeds on your brain power. The more hair you have, the stupider you are. This explains why bald men are wise. It also explains why some bald men are so in the Zen moment of things they have no thoughts at all. You probably know both types, perhaps tending bar in your favorite dive bars.

Hipsters grow superfluous hair because they think it makes them look smart but in fact it just makes them dumber. In some political and cultural circles, becoming dumber does make them look smarter, but not to the rest of us.

Examples of brain-parasite free people:

Saint Paul
Captain Picard

Examples of people whose brain-parasites have starved to death:

William Shatner
James Carville
Colonel Klink
Zim the Invader

People who have been destroyed by their hair

Carrot Top
Anybody with a Jew-fro
Ann Coulter
Anybody with a bee hive or page boy, except Marge Simpson (maybe)
Salvador Dali (devoured by a very clever mustache, a terrible way to go)
Yosimite Sam

People who have managed to control their unruly hair despite falling victim to it:

John Waters
Any moron with a crew cut
Sharon Osbourne

What an idiot: "2005 The national science academies of the G8 nations, plus Brazil, China and India, three of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases in the developing world, signed a statement on the global response to climate change. The statement stresses that the scientific understanding of climate change is now sufficiently clear to justify nations taking prompt action"
