    As the US’ Midwest prepares for a polar vortex bringing deadly, low temperatures, the country’s president found it an opportune time to tweet against climate change research without quite understanding the difference between “climate” and “weather.”

    Weathering the Twitterstorm

    Despite the average world surface air temperature topping the charts for the last four years, the US commander-in-chief appears to still have an issue separating everyday weather from climate.

    With not a thought or prayer thought given to those preparing for the brunt of the polar vortex — which is forecast to bring temperatures as low as minus 60 degrees Fahrenheit — US President Donald Trump turned to Twitter Monday night in an attempt to use the perilous weather to his advance future policies rebuking climate change.

    Though his spelling of "global warming" is definitely a new one, the style of this tweet is not new, as Trump tweeted a similar climate change dig January 20. However, in that particular instance, the president at least appeared to be sincere with a quick "be careful and try staying in your house."

      Tensions between Tehran and Washington reached new levels on Tuesday after Iran’s president criticized his US counterpart’s administration, asserting the White House is “full of lies” and “mentally retarded” for its sanctions. US President Donald Trump, of course, did not let this comment go without a Twitter response.

      On Wednesday, former US Vice President Joe Biden doubled down and defended his romanticization of time spent working with senators who opposed efforts toward desegregation, saying it was wrong of his fellow Democrats to criticize his comments because there’s “not a racist bone” in his body.

      In a bold Monday night tweet, US President Donald Trump proudly announced the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE) would begin removing “millions” of “illegal aliens” from US cities. Through what means? That’s anyone’s guess.
