Mike Lee was in rare form today in the United States Senate, and he couldn’t wait to troll his Democratic colleagues and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on the Green New Deal.
Sen. Mike Lee presented a picture of former President Ronald Reagan riding a velociraptor Tuesday during a procedural vote for the Green New Deal, the Democrats‘ proposal for social and environmental legislation, to treat it with the “seriousness it deserves.”
“I rise today to consider the Green New Deal with the seriousness it deserves. … This, of course, is a picture of former President Ronald Reagan, firing a machine gun while riding on the back of a dinosaur,” the Utah Republican said on the floor of the Senate.
“There was no battle with, or without, velociraptors. The Cold War was won without firing a shot,” Mr. Lee said, adding that the image was a visual of “overcoming communism in the 20th century as the Green New Deal has to do with overcoming climate change in the 21st.”
