Prosecute the torture.

Meanwhile, Outside...It's Still Getting Warmer.

From the scientists at NOAA:
The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for April 2016 was 1.10°C (1.98°F) above the 20th century average of 13.7°C (56.7°F)—the highest temperature departure for April since global records began in 1880. This value surpassed the previous record set in 2010 by 0.28°C (0.50°F). This was also the fourth highest monthly temperature departure among all 1,636 months on record, behind March 2016 (1.23°C/2.21°F), February 2016 (1.19°C/2.14°F), and December 2015 (1.12°C/2.02°F). Overall, 13 out of the 15 highest monthly temperature departures in the record have all occurred since February 2015, with February 1998 and January 2007 among the 15 highest monthly temperature departures. April 2016 also marks the fifth consecutive month (since December 2015) that the global monthly temperature departure from average has surpassed 1.0°C (1.8°F) and it is the 12th consecutive month a monthly global temperature record has been broken, the longest such streak in NOAA's 137 years of record keeping. [Emphasis added.]
But we know all of this a lie because one Senator from Oklahoma was able to find enough snow in DC in February to make a snowball.

A reminder: Both Donald Trump and Pat Toomey are, in one way or another, climate science deniers.

And both are, of course, in the GOP.

Hmmm...looks like a random response to one of Omega Heir's comments.
