VARNEY: No, it gives you an excuse to blame Trump.
BRUCE: It allows you to do that too.
PETE HEGSETH (FOX & FRIENDS WEEKEND CO-HOST): Tammy's totally right. This is -- it's climate change now. You know what it was before? It was global cooling, and then it was global warming, and then it was global cooling, and then it was global warming -- they couldn't figure out what it was. So they scrapped them both and went with global climate change. Whether it is hot or cold, windy or not, we're to blame for it. And she got into the key point at the end as well. It's all about control. When climate change is your religion, nothing else matters and you want to control everything else. This president has said I don't want to control you. I want to unleash you and give businesses and individuals the ability to flourish and thrive. Yet the left will not skip any single moment to condemn this president. In this case it's a hurricane. And The Washington Post is doing it again.
