Friday morning the noted climate scientists Diamond and Silk brought their expertise to the couch d'genius at Fox and Friends.
I have to assume that the papers Brian and Ainsley are holding have "the amount of money I get paid for this" written on them. That's the only way I'd get through the interview, too.
Transcript via Media Matters:
LYNETTE HARDAWAY (DIAMOND, FOX NATION PERSONALITY): Listen, you have to realize that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she's reckless, she's clueless, and she have a vacuous mindset.
ROCHELLE RICHARDSON (SILK, FOX NATION PERSONALITY): Right.
HARDAWAY: First of all, civil rights have nothing to do with climate change. First of all. And then second of all, her Green New Deal is a green new scam that we must stay away from. Now, I know that she's worried about climate change, but she need to talk to Mother Nature.
RICHARDSON: That's right.
HARDAWAY: Because with the Earth rotating at 1,000 miles per hour, OK, 365 days of the year, we subject to feel climate changing a little bit. But not to the tune where we have to dismantle everything and start the Earth back over again. It's a absolutely no for us.
Thank you to those on Twitter pointing out the long, racist history of minstrel shows and why this is just that.
