Dumberer and Dumberer

Byron York:

President Trump’s performance at the G-20 summit in Germany produced a wave of commentary claiming the United States has abdicated its role as world leader. ABC News contemplated “A World Without U.S. Leadership.” CNN reported that Trump exchanged “an aggressive, traditional American leadership role for isolation in a club of one.” The liberal activist Neera Tanden tweeted, “Can we just admit that the era of American global leadership is over under Trump?” The talking point quickly became conventional wisdom in Europe. In the United Kingdom, the Independent wrote, “The G-20 proves it. Because of Trump, the world no longer looks to America for leadership.” While there were disagreements in Hamburg between Trump and the other 19 nations on lots of things, including trade, the main factor in all the end-of-American-leadership talk was the president’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord. The idea is that, by not going along with the other 19 nations — Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the European Union — the United States is no longer leading.

Can some politician or reporter please, somewhere, at some time, ask the nincompoops a simple question: to the nearest percent, what percent is CO2 as a part of the atmosphere? 20%, 30%, 40%, 70%? Hilarity should ensue. What a great and profitable scam that makes Bernie Madoff look like a three card monte guy ripping off the rube tourists in Times Square.

    0.03%. On Byron York’s comment: It’s as if they took Obama’s failures and attributed them to Trump. Has the world gone mad, or is it just me?

    Yeah the world marches to Canada and Argentina’s drum. Europe is so yesterday.
