Minnesota Democrat Senator Amy Klobuchar announced Sunday afternoon that she will be running for the Democrat nomination for president. Klobuchar made her announcement at Boom Island Park in the midst of a driving snowstorm and 16 degree temperatures.
Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar launches her 2020 presidential campaign in Minnesota: “We are tired of the shutdowns and the showdowns, of the gridlock and the grandstanding” https://t.co/A12a0TRvg5 pic.twitter.com/J4gdA7iqlU

Senator Klobuchar highlighted her ability to “reach across the aisle” to get things done. Specifically, Klobuchar referenced her success in securing funding for the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi River. That same bridge served as the backdrop for Klobuchar’s announcement.
“That’s community. That’s a shared story. That’s ordinary people doing extraordinary things,” Klobuchar said.
Klobuchar also decried America’s current political climate saying, “But that sense of community is fracturing across our nation right now, worn down by the petty and vicious nature of our politics. We are all tired of the shutdowns and the putdowns, of the gridlock and the grandstanding. Today on this snowy island, we say enough is enough. Our nation must be governed not from chaos but from opportunity. Not by wallowing over what’s wrong, but my marching inexorably toward what’s right.”
It’s worth pausing here to note that Senator Klobuchar is accused by three former staffers of being incredibly abusive towards her employees.
Amy Klobuchar is one of several Democrat senators that have backed New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s so-called “Green New Deal.” The Green New Deal would, among other things, ban meat and air travel in an effort to combat catastrophic climate change.
The fact that Senator Klobuchar made her announcement in the frigid winter wonderland that has currently enveloped Minnesota was not lost on President Trump.
Well, it happened again. Amy Klobuchar announced that she is running for President, talking proudly of fighting global warming while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Bad timing. By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!

The Left took President Trump’s good-natured (accurate) jab about as well as one would expect.
For the hundredth time, climate change and weather are completely different.

Except, of course, when Democrats need to advance their climate change hysterics. Then climate and weather are totally interchangeable.

Why does everyone forget proper punctuation when they call someone else stupid?
Science is hard. Good try though, Donald.

Intellectual assessment experts estimate of IQ of 85, and that’s being generous.

Why would you broadcast your low IQ to the entire world?
Even 11 year olds understand an overall warming of the planet does not mean cold weather won’t happen. In fact, it destabilises weather patterns and makes freak weather at both ends of the spectrum more likely. You are too stupid to be president.

Even 11 year olds understand that making things hot doesn’t freeze them.
You’re literally too stupid to insult

Again with the lack of proper punctuation. It’s like it’s a requirement or something.
Climate Change explained for Trump: warming oceans cause colder climates..its like having a russian prostitute (or two) peeing on your bed, even though the pee is warm when it first hits your face, as it cools it makes the bed colder and wet. Got it?

I’ve avoided tweeting at you. But here goes. – This tweet ALONE proves that you are an arrogant idiot. And if you can’t see why, you’re an even bigger idiot. Ok, I’m done paying attention to you.
