Senator Bernie Sanders used his signature style of humor on Monday to criticize Donald Trump for his backwards views on climate change.

“We know Donald Trump is the greatest everything in the world . . . which includes science. As a pasttime, he is a world renowned scientist.”

Sanders referenced a tweet from a couple of years ago where Trump claims that climate change is a hoax created by the Chinese, though Sanders says he is surprised that Trump doesn’t blame it on Mexicans or Muslims given his past biases.
