It’s not just Bette Midler melting down over the summer heat. Dan Rather’s beside himself, too:
It seems whenever there's a deep freeze in winter, the climate change deniers jump on Twitter. It’s 100 degrees outside… the silence is deafening.

Deafening, you guys. Maybe that’s because it’s effing July.
It’s… July… https://t.co/hkPNsTUkxf

Surely Dan Rather is old enough to remember hotter Julys than this one, right?
are you nuts??? Its a July heat wave that doesnt hold a candle to the great ones of the 1930s. Get a clue will you. Look at summers of 34,36. Blow this out of the water Check out the drought too. We could have a top 5 corn crop this year. Clueless as usual pic.twitter.com/LCJtOo4vez

Dan needs to cool it. But how?
Ah, rain. In the wake of days of near record heat, rain fell in New York and the surrounding Tristate area today. Not much and not for long, but enough for long enough to bring to mind an old saying from my Texas youth: “A newborn calf and a fresh rain are always welcome.”

Dear Mr. Rather, I rather enjoy your tweets, so don't let anyone speak unkindly of them. You kind of make me feel like things just might be ok after this is all over. Thank you for that.

Oh, we’re enjoying them, too. They’re worth their weight in unintentional comedy gold!
Is this a parody account?
