(RepublicanReport.com) – One of the Left’s favorite criticisms of American Conservatives is that they “deny science” when it comes to the topic of climate change. While climate change has caused massive debate among Democrats and Republicans over the years, there are some commentators who use the issue as a tool to cast leaders in a negative light.
Over the last week, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) came under fire for a tweet in which he appeared to remark “I’ll believe in climate change when Texas freezes over.” Liberal commentators and celebrities (including Bette Midler, whose response can be seen below) were quick to mock Cruz for the tweet, given the recent cold snap in Texas.

Unfortunately for Midler and other leftist Twitter users, the tweet had nothing to do with Ted Cruz. A simple fact-check showed it was a fabrication.

As a long-time supporter of the oil and gas industries, Cruz was an easy target for this trolling attempt. However, it’s unclear how making up a social media post is going to help the liberal cause.
