When New Day’s Alisyn Camerota tried to discuss Trump’s EPA pick Scott Pruitt, and his stance on climate change, co-host Chris Cuomo pushed back hard.
“People thought the world was flat. People thought blacks and whites shouldn’t marry. People thought blacks shouldn’t be equal,” Cuomo said, comparing those who questioned climate change to segregationists. Camerota responded, “People thought the Antarctic ice would be gone by now.”
Camerota also challenged Cuomo on the degree of the scientific consensus that humans contribute to climate change. “Ninety-nine percent of the scientific community says global warming is affected by man,” Cuomo claimed. Camerota shot back: “CNN says the number is 90%.”
Regardless of Cuomo’s protests, Bloomberg Politics reporter Jennifer Jacobs said that Pruitt’s confirmation is “going to sail right through.” Furthermore, CNN’s Mark Preston mentioned that Democrats could cross the aisle to confirm Pruitt. Preston said “[y]ou also have Democrats like Joe Manchin from West Virginia who potentially could say, ‘You know, he’s been fighting for an industry that’s critical to my home state,’ so that is interesting.”
