Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders compared “climate change” to an “asteroid hitting the earth” in a tweet posted Friday.
The tweet goes after Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under President Trump.

Sanders has a long history of making questionable statements on Twitter.
In January he tweeted that “no one wants” a border wall with Mexico. (RELATED: Bernie Sanders Claims ‘No One Wants’ A Border Wall)
I’m not sure why President Trump wants to shut down the government over an $18 billion wall that no one wants, isn’t needed and Mexico won’t pay for. What the American people want, overwhelmingly, is to provide legal protection and a path toward citizenship for 800,000 Dreamers.
