"I think he knows more than all the scientists.''
He also knows more than all the Doctors, Economists, Psychologists, Professors, Generals, Meterologists, etc.
So now that the all-knowing dictator is working on climate change, we can all take a breath of relief since given his problem solving track record Global Warming will be totally …….
