Bill Maher: GOP Mocks Punxsutawney Phil as 'Just Another Climate Alarmist Like Al Gore'
Punxsutawney Phil is the latest victim of conservative outrage, Bill Maher said on Real Time with Bill Maher on Thursday. "Punxsutawney Phil said it's going to be an early spring, which means warmer weather," Maher said. "So, naturally, conservatives now think that Punxsutawney Phil is in the tank with the liberals on global warming.”
Maher created a hilarious faux attack ad, which ridicules the GOP for dismissing Punxsutawney Phil as "just another climate alarmist like Al Gore."
Conservatives, such as presidential candidates Donald Trump (R) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), as well as Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), who heads the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, have repeatedly denied the the scientific consensus on climate change.
