Colbert Mocks Limbaugh, Carlson, Doocy Over Their Global Warming Denials

Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

On the August 9 edition of The Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert mocked Rush Limbaugh for claiming that the heat index is a government conspiracy, joking, "The heat index is just more big government numbers telling you how hot to feel -- just like their time index tells you how sleepy to feel." He also mocked Fox & Friends co-hosts Steve Doocy and Gretchen Carlson for claiming that a recent episode of SpongeBob SquarePants was "pushing a global warming agenda" and falsely suggesting that there is doubt within the scientific community about whether or not global warming is man-made.
