Representative Don Beyer (D-VA) criticized President Donald Trump after he mocked the science behind climate change in a tweet that claimed the East Coast “could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming” as it contends with record-breaking frigid temperatures this weekend.

Beyer slammed Trump for not listening to the advice from experts who understand the grave threat climate change poses to the planet.

“1: This isn’t how climate change works,” Beyer tweeted. “2: We weren’t paying trillions of dollars. You didn’t understand the Paris Agreement in June and you still don’t,” he tweeted.

He continued: “3: Climate Change is real. It is a serious threat to our children. You need people on your team who can explain this to you.”

Beyer’s colleague, Representative Kathleen Rice (D-NY), also had harsh words for the president.

“Instead of tweeting like a child who hates science class, if you’re so worried about the cold you could always send your 45M+ followers info about how to find shelter, prevent hypothermia & frost bite, prevent pipes from freezing, protect their pets, etc,” Rice tweeted. She added: “Not even to mention the fact that you are in Florida. At your country club. Where you played golf today. Again. There are people all over America who will sleep outside tonight because they have no warm place to go.”

Even former Jersey Shore cast member Vinny Guadagnino chimed in, telling the president that “climate change is more complex than global warming will make it hotter”:

After social media users mocked him for his response to Trump, Guadagnino asked, “why does having a summer shore house automatically make [you] stupid?”

The president has often placed himself at odds with the scientific community; a noted climate change denier, he has claimed that global warming is a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese.
