NASA, Trump, And How It's Still Getting Warmer Outside

From the climate scientists at NASA:
August 2016 was the warmest August in 136 years of modern record-keeping, according to a monthly analysis of global temperatures by scientists at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York.

Although the seasonal temperature cycle typically peaks in July, August 2016 wound up tied with July 2016 for the warmest month ever recorded. August 2016's temperature was 0.16 degrees Celsius warmer than the previous warmest August in 2014. Last month also was 0.98 degrees Celsius warmer than the mean August temperature from 1951-1980
They even have some art:

See that red line waaay up on top?  That's this year.

We already know who, in the current campaign for President is with the science (Clinton, by the way) and whose deplorable ideas have been debunked numerous times (Trump says it's a hoax).

Meanwhile, did you know that Trump's got some IRS issues?

From The Washington Post:
Donald Trump's charity is not like other charities.

For one thing — as The Washington Post explained Sunday — the money in the Donald J. Trump Foundation does not come from Trump himself. Tax records show that Trump hasn't donated any money to his foundation since 2008. Instead, he has retooled his personal charity so that it gives away other people's money — although Trump has kept his name on the foundation, and atop its checks.

For another, the Trump Foundation seems to have repeatedly defied the Internal Revenue Service rules that govern nonprofits. It gave a prohibited political gift to help Florida Attorney General Pamela Bondi (R). It appears to have bought items for Trump — including a $12,000 football helmet and a $20,000 portrait of Trump — despite IRS rules against "self-dealing" by charity leaders.

And, in at least five cases, the Trump Foundation may have reported making a donation that didn't seem to exist.
And so on.

Meanwhile, Mike Pence refuses to do two simple things:
  • Refuses to say that Donald Trump should apologize for his years of Birther bullshit
  • Refuses to say that David Duke (former KKK guy) is "deplorable."
This is what we're looking at right now.
