OMB Director Mick Mulvaney gave a straightforward explanation for why they're gutting climate research.
"The president was straightforward. We're not spending money on that anymore," he huffed. "We think that's a waste of your money to do that."
Twitter reacted swiftly.
Shocking how heartless Mulvaney was in discussing the defunding of climate change studies, Meals-on-Wheels, and the NEA.#PressBriefing

I hope Mulvaney burns in the world he and Trump create. Hopefully the rest of us will figure out how to take care of each other.
