Man! That jackwad is going to get a lot more climate questions...so that's good!

Whilst looking for criminal/racist/lady-shaming history that's nearly always created by such a man, ran across her full question not included by BBC:

"You've said that climate change is a result of people's body heat, and are refusing to take action on the issue," said Rose Strauss, 18, a volunteer with Sunrise, a political group focused on fighting climate change. "Does this have anything to do with the $200,000 that you have taken from the fossil fuel industry?"

Even if she were young and naive, that's far better than ignorant and corrupt.

I swear to Christ if I had the capital I would develop an app that sent a small but noticeable electric volt through the phone that wouldn't damage the phone but hit the person holding it if it was detected that a picture, maybe only video was taken while the phone was being held vertically. It would only work with phones with metal cases like the iPhone and there are rare cases where holding the phone vertically is proper but you know, collateral damage.

Oh and this guy is an asshole.
 
2018-07-21 07:47:52 AM  
Well then a lot more people ask him the same question, and keep asking it.

From that story as well:

Wagner tends to engage in these kinds of exchanges; a tracker with the state Democratic Party once filmed him describing the liberal billionaire George Soros as a "Hungarian Jew" who has "hatred for America."

Christ, what a Republican.

Naive in that she expected a civil response.  She was "disheartened" by the experience, apparently not realizing that when you publicly accuse someone of being effectively being bought off they might get a little pissy about it.

Ever been in a room full of freshman journalism majors?   I have, and it was one of the scariest moments of my life.  Their powerful prose was going to right every wrong on the planet.  That was 45 years so they may have naively overestimated their success potential.

This Wagner guy's been a real Republican asshole ever since he decided he wanted to be Governor a couple years ago, with the vitriol, the willful ignorance, the greed, the loving of Trump. Unfortunately he knows what to do to get in the news, which is what enabled him to win the PA primary.

I converted, after a bit of research, as did most of my geek friends. I wish Wilhite was wrong, gif sounds better to me... But it's hard to argue when the dude that made it says I'm wrong. Arguing against that would just show an unwillingness to adapt my view in the face of evidence.
