We can all agree Donald Trump's abandonment of the Paris Climate Accords was quite the shocker. Nikki Haley appeared on State of the Union defending his decision. Her comments were so comical, Jake Tapper could only laugh and point out Trump's climate views are a "big box of crazy".
Haley defended Trump and claimed that the Paris Climate Accords was no good for American businesses. “The jobs were not attainable as long as we had to live under those regulations. It wasn’t possible to meet the conditions under the Paris agreement.”
Without a beat, Tapper points out that the Paris Climate Accords, regulations included, were created and installed by American under President Obama's administration.
Haley fumbles her words. It appears she's about to blame the rest of the world, but catches herself. She peddles back and blames Obama for the regulations.
This causes Tapper to not only laugh but to call Nikki out. He points out how Haley is avoiding the question and actually says, "Calling climate change a Chinese hoax is a big box of crazy."
Haley proceeds to say that Trump believes that climate is changing but never indicates whether or not he believes in climate change.
I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.
But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"?
No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!
There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
