The Summary: The French Toastening…

Paris is Burning… We’ll Always Have Pittsburgh.

What climate change?

Here’s the thing to note: The Paris Accord (not a car, Trump!) is a voluntary agreement, non-binding, and has no penalties for missing the mark on emissions goals.  So the Russian Usurper (in his meandering speech) was lying when he told us,

The Paris Agreement handicaps the United States economy in order to win praise from the very foreign capitals and global activists that have long sought to gain wealth at our country’s expense. They don’t put America first. I do, and I always will. (Applause.)

The same nations asking us to stay in the agreement are the countries that have collectively cost America trillions of dollars through tough trade practices and, in many cases, lax contributions to our critical military alliance. You see what’s happening. It’s pretty obvious to those that want to keep an open mind.

At what point does America get demeaned? At what point do they start laughing at us as a country? We want fair treatment for its citizens, and we want fair treatment for our taxpayers. We don’t want other leaders and other countries laughing at us anymore. And they won’t be. They won’t be.

I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris. (Applause.)

First up: Don’t Defame Pittsburgh!

Pittsburgh’s mayor took to Twitter to reinforce his city’s commitment to the Paris climate agreement after President Donald Trump made reference to the city while announcing his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the accord Thursday.

Next up: Elon Musk Quits (but why he was helping Trump before remains a mystery):

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has quit two of President Trump’s business advisory councils after the president announced he will pull the U.S. out of the historic Paris climate agreement.

Next up: Disney CEO Bob Iger Quits (but why he was helping Trump before remains a mystery):

Disney (DIS) CEO Bob Iger said he will step down from Trump’s business advisory council, protesting the president’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate deal.

“Protecting our planet and driving economic growth are critical to our future, and they aren’t mutually exclusive,” Iger said in a statement. “I deeply disagree with the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement.”

He also posted his decision on Twitter, saying he’d resigned from Trump’s business council “as a matter of principle.”

Lloyd Blankfein (CEO Goldman Sachs) gives his first and only tweet:

France makes it’s move!

(And as a side note if not a side eye: expect a brain drain of US Scientists to leave.)

But then the real tragedy is reported, thanks to the ever-vigilant Tiger Beat on the Potomac:

After climate loss, Ivanka moves on

Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, missed the Rose Garden announcement on the Paris deal, but they have taken the defeat in stride, people familiar with their thinking said.

Which led to one, lone voice sobbing on the twitter machine:

    I wouldn’t be to hard on Musk and Iger. While it is highly likely that they were advising Trump to go in directions that would benefit their companies, they obviously were at least advising him not to pull out of the Paris Accord. When they pull out and others like them then Trump will only hear what he wants to hear from his advisory board and that can’t be good for any of us. So now they are bailing out because they don’t want to look like they are helping Trump, but perhaps it would be better if they hung in there.

    She’s like her Dear Leader, I mean Daddy, for unless there’s a buck to be made, she could care less. For like him and her husband, it’s always about the Benjamin’s aka Chump Change.

    There were some great replies to the Politico tweet you linked too, including your own!
    #Complicit – the perfume
    Julius and Ethel Rosenberg (with insider knowledge and a Get Out of Jail Pardon card)
    The Chinese Labor situation & missing investigators

    But it occurred to me that the whole family is like The Cat in The Hat, which as been running Ad nauseam on the tv box. I have no sympathy for her/them but growing up around narcissist who’s every breathing moment revolves around stroking their ego and making money, well…
