Raleigh, N.C. — Appearing on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” Sunday to talk about the winter storm that shut down the state last week, Gov. Pat McCrory sidestepped a pointed question about his position on climate change.
The question from host Bob Schieffer came at the end of a segment on North Carolina’s response to the storm.
“Governor, a couple of years ago, you made a remark that caught a lot of people’s attention. You said that global warming is ‘in God’s hands,’” Schieffer said. “After what you’ve – going through this thing, do you still feel that way? Is there something we ought to be doing about it in the meantime?”
Only a true-believing propaganda hack like Schieffer would ask about global warming in reference to one of the coldest periods in America in the past 100 years.
If McCrory had possessed even half a brain, he would have responded: “Bob, I just shoveled a foot of your “global warming off my driveway. Do you think that maybe you ought to stop beating the global warming drum?”
