On Fox & Friends this morning, host Brian Kilmeade challenged Jon Huntsman about his belief in global warming.
HUNTSMAN: I've always said, and it's on the record.... climate change has an established body of science associated with it. That's all I'm going to say.
KILMEADE: And a lot of corruption surrounding it, which has a lot of eyebrows up.
HUNTSMAN: But beyond that, let's get serious about the issues of the day.
KILMEADE: Well, tell the scientists to get serious about making things up.
HUNTSMAN: The issues are about dealing with the debt we face and creating jobs. Everything else right now is a side-show.
KILMEADE: That's true, but we're not the ones taking grant money with scientists and making up results which hurt the cause, in particular.
Huntsman famously embraced global warming in a tweet two weeks ago -- one that got him a lot of press.
It's ironic that he's now call it a "side-show" when he was the one raising the issue with the provocative tweet.
