Political Propaganda Disguised as Science
This is nothing more than slander. Michael Lewis is a great author and journalist, but this whole book – ostensibly about weather statistics – is slander toward Trump and encomiums toward Obama. I didn’t vote for Trump, don’t really like his entire demeanor, but this constant vitriol directed at him and about him has become monotonously wearisome. I’m so tired of the entire leftist diatribe of all things conservative and Trump that I can’t help but dismiss all of their accusations in disbelief… much like the boy who cried wolf.
There are some interesting tidbits contained in this book, but with so short a work I’m surprised at the initial lengthy introduction to a single scientist who makes no other appearance in the book. There’s really no conclusion other than Obama was great with regard to supporting the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Trump is doing everything to stop their admirable work because he hates science. Get over yourselves!
