Chris Hayes Expertly Uses Trump Mania to Divert Attention to Some Good

Screen Shot 2016-03-30 at 9.46.46 PMHere in the caboose of the Trump Train that we all find ourselves in for the 2016 election, it can be tough for substantive dialogue to work its way to the surface. Unfortunately, even the most deserving of stories get choked out by hand size and wife comparison headlines.

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, no doubt increasingly frustrated at the questionable collapse of integrity going on all around him this year, took to Twitter Wednesday night to troll the phenomenon.

Points to Hayes for invoking the all-caps-hyperbole to really hit at the Trump mania in his best Harvey Levin impression. The redirect link instead turns to a New York Times piece from today by Justin Gillis called “Climate Model Predicts West Antarctic Ice Sheet Could Melt Rapidly”.

All-too-prophetically, Gillis’ article includes the foreboding line, “the disaster scenario could play out,” perhaps a double meaning for both the ills of the Trump Train caboose and the shrinking ice sheet in need of a few more headlines.
