Climate change is strengthening the north-south temperature difference that drives the jet stream,” according to Dr. Paul Williams of the University of Reading in the UK.

When informed of the news, aides to popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп quipped, “Thankfully, we don’t have golf courses in Kansas.”

Did you hear what happened in Puerto Rico? The U.S. territory, saddled with tremendous debt and an eroding population, decided to declare the equivalent of bankruptcy protection. The move is intended to protect Puerto Rican citizens from $74 billion in debts and $49 billion in pension liabilities.

I got out of it. All I had to do was take out a bunch of debt to Russia, help some oligarchy launder money, and then–”

Aides rushed into the room and quickly escorted Трамп away before he could continue.
