Secretary of State John Kerry thinks Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and anyone else who doubts the existence of man-made global warming have disqualified themselves from ever holding public office.

Kerry’s remarks come after Trump took to Twitter to mock global warming alarmists. Trump made his remarks as a cold front hit the East Coast Monday, bringing frigid weather to millions of Americans.
It’s really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 19, 2015
As expected, Trump’s mocking got a harsh response from liberal media outlets. The liberal site Mother Jones ran with the headline “Donald Trump Still Does Not Understand How Seasons Work” and The Washington Post declared, “No, Donald Trump, the existence of fall does not disprove global warming.”
Kerry’s rebuke of Trump and everyone who questions global warming is not the first time the Obama administration has suggested skeptics should be disqualified from politics. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in May that skeptics should not have a say in ratifying a United Nations climate treaty.
“Well these are individuals whom, many of whom at least, deny the fact that climate change even exists,” Earnest said. “So I’m not sure they would be in the best position to decide whether or not a climate change agreement is one that is worth entering into.”
