I want to start with The Environment since most of these white male comedians or even black ones seem to be Psuedo green party bernie sanders butt boys who claim to care about Climate Change but know pretty much fuck-all about it & what it takes to reverse it & protect the earth
It seems odd that If Donald Trump is no different than Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton or Bill Clinton or Barack Obama that he would spend 4 years desperately and with demented precision
trying to reverse everything those other people put in place
Perhaps the biggest Government effort to fight climate change was included in the Obama-era automobile fuel efficiency standards of 2012 which required automakers to nearly double the average fuel economy of new cars and trucks by 2025.
This was historic. America would have reduced it's oil consumption by 12 billion barrels. and 1.7 trillion in fuel costs, an average savings of more than $8,000 a vehicle by 2025. This was the single most important step ever taken to reduce our dependence on foreign oil
These rules would have cut greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2025, eliminating six billion tons over the course of the program. and generated hundreds of thousands of jobs by increasing the demand for new technologies.
In the Spring Donald Trump reversed this. Allowing cars on American roads to emit nearly a billion tons more carbon dioxide over the lifetime of the vehicles than they would have under the Obama standards
and hundreds of millions of tons more than will be emitted under standards being implemented in Europe and Asia.

Withdrew guidance directing federal agencies to include greenhouse gas emissions in environmental reviews Revoked an Obama executive order that set a goal of cutting the federal government’s greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent over 10 years.
Repealed a requirement that state and regional authorities track tailpipe emissions from vehicles on federal highways.
