Stephen Colbert has mocked President Donald Trump’s claim that he has a “natural instinct for science” with a sketch pouring scorn on his alleged ignorance of climate change.
“I have a natural instinct for science, and I will say that you have scientists on both sides of the picture,” President Trump said to the Associated Press in a Tuesday interview.

Colbert joked:

After a year of massive storms causing untold damage, and our glaciers just shrinking in every direction, Trump was still ambivalent on the concept of climate change. He told the reporter, “You have scientists on both sides of the issue.” That is true, there are scientists on both sides. On one side, all the scientists. On the other, one guy who runs a blog called RealTrueAmericanScienceEagle.jesus.

Though his reliably partisan audience found the sketch uproariously funny, the joke was really on Colbert: it showed that Trump knows more than he does about climate change.

Actor Sean Astin Scolds Fans for Failing to ‘Like’ His Endorsement of ‘Pro-Climate’ Candidate

Sean Astin — the actor still probably best known for playing furry-footed hobbit yokel Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings— has berated his fans for showing insufficient zeal on climate change.

“When I mention a Pro-Climate Candidate like @ReneeHoagenson and only 90 of my 330,000 followers “like” comment & retweet, I get pretty ticked off. Do you all know who she is? Is her opponent a Climate-supporter?” the Rudy star tweeted. “Laziness and irresponsibility exists on twitter & that means YOU.”

Trump Aces Climate Change Debate on ’60 Minutes’

President Donald Trump aced his cross-examination by Lesley Stahl on climate change on 60 Minutes.

Even left-leaning Variety has grudgingly admitted: “60 Minutes was outmatched by Trump.”

The more sympathetic Climate Depot, meanwhile, has fact-checked the president’s climate remarks and found them to be “scientifically, politically and economically accurate.”

President Trump to 60 Minutes: “I think something’s happening. Something’s changing and it’ll change back again. I don’t think it’s a hoax. I think there’s probably a difference. But I don’t know that it’s manmade. I will say this: I don’t want to give trillions and trillions of dollars. I don’t want to lose millions and millions of jobs … I’m not denying climate change.”

Reality Check: President Trump is frankly giving his assessment of man-made climate change and his understanding is in agreement with some very high profile scientists. Trump has been remarkably consistent with his climate views, demanding that the “The Nobel committee should take the Nobel Prize back from Al Gore” in the wake of the Climategate revelations in 2010.
