MNGOP leader Kurt Daudt suggests today's freezing temps mean global warming is a myth
Kurt Daudt: Not a scientist.
It's freezing outside today today. Therefore, global warming isn't happening.
You don't have to ace a college logic class to understand why that's a bunk argument. Nonetheless, it's the sort of taking-empiricism-to-a-whole-new-level reasoning MNGOP House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, wants you to ponder as you shiver.
Daudt offered up this tweet early this afternoon:
While you're out and about today think about this: man-made global warming.

Because if global warming were a real thing, we'd all be at Hidden Beach right now basking in the warm sun. Or something.
