Rick Scott’s (R) administration banned the use of the terms “climate change” and “global warming.” Earlier this month, reports said that officials in the Scott administration ordered Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) administrators not to use the terms in documents or meetings because they asserted that the climate science behind global warming was not a “true fact.” More

Here’s what we learned this week: the Trump administration is living in an era of alternative facts.
We saw it twice over the past few days. In both cases, President Donald Trump displayed a reckless disregard for protocol, for Americans and for the truth.

Joni Ernst is on video fleeing a town hall after only a handful of questions. The crowd erupted in anger chanting “Do your job!” as she fled through a side door.
