Today, temperatures will rise to 97 degrees in Bangor, Maine. On Monday, they will be 98 degrees in Kansas City, Missouri. Tomorrow, Phoenix will enjoy 113 degrees of heat. Everyone, or practically everyone, is suffering.

Whether he wants to admit it or not, Donald Trump is among the sufferers. He spoke in Milwaukee on Tuesday in 90-degree temperatures, and the heat took its toll. Perhaps as a punishment for denying climate change, Trump’s brain was fried. His mouth spewed out a haze of nonsense that is both additional proof of the harm caused by climate change and of Trump’s unfitness for the presidency.

In his Milwaukee speech, The New Republic reports Trump predicted World War III:

Under Crooked Joe Biden, the world is in flames, our border is overrun, inflation is raging, Europe is in total chaos, the Middle East is exploding, Iran is emboldened, China is on the march, and the worst, most incompetent, most corrupt president in history is going to drag us into World War III.
