Can't Stop Laughing

This summer, we have had several reminders of the seriousness of climate change.There have been devastating fires in the Amazon rain forest, which is "critical to the Earth’s climate, influencing weather systems, generating oxygen, and absorbing huge amounts of carbon dioxide — the heat-trapping greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming."  Hurricane Dorian, briefly a Category 5 storm, was an example of the increasing severity of storms as ocean water and air warm. July was globally the warmest month ever recorded.

And Donald Trump's warning to the American people has been echoed by at least one other individual in a position to know, now that

Speaking to a convention of Republican Party delegates in Indian Wells, California, Brad Parscale also said the campaign’s goal is to build a national army of 2 million trained volunteers, far beyond the president’s 2016 organization, that in California could help the GOP retake a string of U.S. House seats captured by Democrats last year.

“The Trumps will be a dynasty that will last for decades, propelling the Republican Party into a new party,” he said. “One that will adapt to changing cultures. One must continue to adapt while keeping the conservative values that we believe in.”

Maggie Haberman of The New York Times reports

a campaign official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity and without official authorization to discuss the speech, said that Mr. Parscale was referring less to possible candidacies in the future and more to activities such as political speeches and fund-raising.

That was a clean-up job so good it was literally unbelievable. The "he didn't really mean 'dynasty' when he said 'dynasty'" is akin to the oft-heard excuse from Trump surrogates that, when the President is criticized for an outrageous remark, he was really "joking."

Four months ago, Trump had written online

Despite the tremendous success that I have had as President, including perhaps the greatest ECONOMY and most successful first two years of any President in history, they have stollen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back.

This followed the sex-crazed, deceitful, unscrupulous, and fraudulent Christian conservative Jerry Falwell Jr. tweeting "I now support reparations- Trump should have 2 years added to his 1st term as pay back for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup."

He did it again Monday when, at another outdoor, planned spontaneous news conference before boarding Air Force One, Trump stated "We're going to have extend my second term...I'm going to have to extend it for a couple years."

A German understands:
(The spelling errors may remind us of Donald Trump, but this guy is from Berlin and not New York City.)

President Trump's remark is similar to the one from his campaign manager, throwing something against a wall to see what sticks. And as with Category 5 hurricanes and record-breaking heat, it's a warning.
