[See NewsBusters for more.] Over the past few weeks wildfires have ravaged up and down the length of the west coast, killing and displacing many. On Monday's MSNBC Live host Hallie Jackson, Biden campaign reporter Mike Memoli, and White House correspondent Shannon Pettypiece hailed Joe Biden as a fighter of climate change and condemned President Trump for pulling back Obama-era climate regulations, suggesting that has something do with the situation.
Memoli's reporting from Delaware sounded more like a commercial for the Biden campaign, "I'll remind you of what Biden said in the past about climate change as an economic issue. He says President Trump hears the term climate change and thinks one word, hoax. He hears climate change and thinks of one word and that is jobs, jobs as an opportunity to build a new clean energy infrastructure."
