CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta thought it was time during Monday’s White House press briefing to make a fool of himself, partnering with his fellow journalists in lobbying the Trump administration to both believe that global warming caused Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and rejoin the Paris climate deal to stop them.

Riding high off winning the 2017 Presidential award over the weekend from the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, Acosta told Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert that the Obama administration “saw a connection between climate change and Homeland Security and that the frequency and intensity of powerful storms like Harvey and Irma could pose a problem for future administrations.”
