Case of the flu? Climate change. Mudslide? Climate change. (Usually, we’re right.) But I was […]

"I solved North and South Korea, why can’t I solve us,” Baldwin says. "Sorry Donald, it's too late for that. I know you don’t believe in climate change, but a storm’s a comin’, baby,” Daniels says with her now-widely recognizable ...
