President Barack Obama is spending time addressing climate change while in Alaska this week, and hosts on Fox News’ “The Five” are not happy about it. ”To me it’s such a glaring example of priorities askew,” said host Kimberly Guilfoyle, arguing that the president should be focusing on escalating crime rates instead of climate change.
“I still fail at this point to understand where he’s coming from because I don’t speak the language he speaks…He thinks the biggest threat to national security is climate change. Whoa. Where do you even go from there?”
Host Greg Gutfeld backed Guilfoyle, arguing that Obama is more concerned with the “academic, climate change-obsessed community” than communities where the crime rates are up. ”He should work for The Weather Channel,” Guilfoyle suggested, adding later, “He’s like, obsessed with cumulus clouds.”
Obama is spending three days this week discussing issues in Alaska, a state both rich in fossil fuels and exceptionally vulnerable to the disasters posed by global warming.
In June, Surgeon General Vivek Murthy declared that climate change presents a “serious, immediate and global threat to human health.”
