Who knew that ‘covfefe” meant “I’m going to murder the planet and piss off the rest of the world” when Trump wrote it the other day on Twitter. The current president of the United States not only doesn’t care about my family and yours, he clearly doesn’t care about his own. I mean, is he building a Trump Tower on another planet to escape to when he helps to destroy this one?

Here’s the thing, Trump is acting against hard scientific facts, people with about 100 more IQ points than he has, world leaders and industry giants who all know that climate change is real and cannot be ignored without dire consequences. We’re going to need that birth control he’s pulling, because the planet won’t be healthy enough for future generations to live on.

Gratitude to the progressive and awesome Mayor of Boston, Marty Walsh (not to mention the mayor of Pittsburgh who is with Paris, not with Trump) who responded to Trump’s bonehead move with this:

“Withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement isn’t just a setback, it’s irresponsible. This damages our nation’s reputation as an international leader and puts future generations at risk to the threat of climate change. Boston will not standby given what’s at stake.

We are committed to addressing climate change head on and will accelerate Boston’s efforts to become carbon neutral by 2050. Fighting climate change means fighting for all those affected by worsening air quality, extreme heat, eroding coastlines — issues that will continue to impact residents for generations to come.

As Mayor, I will continue to work with U.S. Mayors and cities around the world to uphold the tenets of the Paris climate agreement and protect Boston against the very real impacts of climate change.”

I love that dirty water, but I hope Trump loves it too. Because it’s going to be everywhere, and not just in a song about Boston.
