Arrogant Obama mocks Congress: ‘I’m going to just pretend like … I can’t read’

President Obama mocked members of Congress Wednesday during an address to the League of Conservation Voters, saying those who don’t believe in climate change are influenced by the “fringe elements.”

The president said while most people think that carbon pollution is a problem, they don’t understand the issue fully, according to CNS News.

“But generally they don’t just say, ‘No, I don’t believe anything that scientists say,’” he said. “Except – where? In Congress!

“In Congress, folks will tell you climate change is a hoax or a fad – or a plot. It’s a liberal plot!”

Obama was in his element as he delivered the speech in Washington on the first anniversary of the unveiling of his climate change action plan at Georgetown University.

“They say, ‘Hey, I’m not a scientist,’” Obama said. “Which really translates into, ‘I accept that man-made climate change is real, but if I say so out loud I’ll be run out of town by a bunch of fringe elements that think science — climate science is a liberal plot, so I’m going to just pretend like, I don’t know, I can’t read.’ ”
