NY Times Actually Asks, Which Is Worse: Nuclear Bomb or Climate Change?

Written by  Kristine Marsh

If you've ever wondered how wildly out-of-touch the media is, look no further than The New York Times’ Twitter account. Friday morning, the leading newspaper in the country actually wondered if climate change would be a "greater threat" for the island of Guam than being hit with a nuclear bomb.

The New York Times’ World section’s Twitter account proposed the ludicrous question earlier this morning, to much deserved backlash.

What’s a greater threat to Guam? North Korea, or climate change? https://t.co/bPuBrFULC5

Of course this did not go over well. Dozens of replies mocked the paper for making such an absurd comparison:

"Nobody can top stupidity of @AP asking IF we SHOULD stop nuclear warhead headed to Guam"@NYTimes "Hold my beer"https://t.co/5mOLcNrrq6

I'm gonna go with the mentally unstable North Korean dictator with a nuclear weapon, but you do you.

Ignorance is the greatest threat of all... hence... the NYT is a far greater threat than either of these. U people are special.

Perhaps embarrassed by the amount of ridicule the tweet procured, the Times’ social media manager modified the tweet when retweeting it a few hours later to read,“North Korea’s missiles may be one threat to Guam, but scientists are warning of another: climate change.

Climate change can't be stopped. At least we can TRY to do something about NK's and Iran's N Bombs.

I'm so sick of the left. We need to split the country iso we can put a border wall and keep them on one side. Start with California

I know but the problem is, they are on both coasts. How to split the country is the question. Of course, if the west coast were to fall into the Pacific, we would be without the problem of California, Oregon & Washington. Then we could just draw a line down the east coastal area, about 200 miles inland, giving them the original 13 plus a little more but keeping the SE coastal area from the Carolinas on down into Florida.

Only the idiots at the NYT would even think to ask that question. Perhaps we should ask the Times editorial staff, "Which would YOU prefer? A bomb in the city room, or climate change?" (Not even the NYT deserves to be bombed, but their lunacy is apparent and abundant.)

Of course. Remember the NYT slogan, "All the Views that's S**t to Print?"

It's rather a moot point, if President S**t-Bird starts a nuclear war, with his tough-guy bull-(expletive deleted).

That's right, LeeRoy, blame Obama, blame the Clintons, blame Bigfoot, blame Big Bird, blame sunspots, blame G-d for allowing all of this. But whatever you do, DON'T blame President S**t-Bird for shooting off his big mouth, and endangering the people of Guam, Japan and South Korea. And let us not forget that the North Korean Dear Leader might actually be able to hit the Peoples' Republic of California, and that OTHER Washington, on the Left Coast. Or maybe even Bhum Skru, Iowa. But hey, he probably can't hit Washington, DC. Not yet, anyway.

It's obvious that some morons cannot stand the fact that we now have a President that isn't a wimp and is able to stand up for the USA and let the bullies of our world know that there is a new sheriff in town and that those bullies either stop their acts and threats or they will face the might of the USA, that is after it's rebuilt from obama's acts to diminish our country.

Considering that it was idiots, morons, and the simple-minded who elected Donald Trump, we've only the idiots, morons, and the simple-minded to blame.
