That, she did. And it was glorious:
They killed a tree to give me an award for denying global warming on a 71* August day. pic.twitter.com/THUCXoXqkg

For the record, here’s what’s written on the paper award that is made of paper:
“For exceptional extremism in ignoring the overwhelming judgment of science”
Organizing for Action has spent the past week doling out “Climate Denier Award” trophies (because climate denial is a thing, apparently) to congressional Republicans skeptical about climate change. But they must have decided they were spending too much money on trophies, so they opted to scale back — to tree corpses. We could’ve sworn that OFA was against that sort of thing! Don’t they talk about saving the trees and stuff at their rallies? Oh, wait.
