The Supreme Court allows the climate change lawsuit by youth against fossil fuel companies to go ahead. The Trump Justice Department's legal defence?

"There is no right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life."

This is literally cartoon super villain levels of evil.

Edit: There was a term in Age of Sail Admiralty Law- Hostis humani generis It referred to pirates, and it meant "enemy of mankind". That term often seem to me like it would make an apt descriptor for the Trump Regime.
"Well, Grant, we've had the devil's own day, haven't we?"

"Yes. Lick 'em tomorrow though."

-Generals William T. Sherman and Ulysses S Grant, the Battle of Shiloh.

Trump announces new recipients of the Medal of Freedom (America's highest civilian honour), including retiring Republican Senator Oring Hatch, the wife of Republican donor Sheldon Adelson, and (posthumously, of course) far-Right Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:

Equally apt for anti-vaxxers.
"Beware the Beast, Man, for he is the Devil's pawn. Alone amongst God's primates, he kills for sport, for lust, for greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him, drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of Death.."
—29th Scroll, 6th Verse of Ape Law
"Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter. The uproarious laughter between the two, and their having fun at my expense.”

At least they generally have a reason beyond "I literally don't care if the entire human race/all life on Earth goes extinct, as long as I make money/stick it to the liberals". Even when they're wrong, and even when they cause innocent people harm, they're mostly not acting out of pure unbridled greed and malice on a level that would make Lex Luthor say "Tone it down a bit".

Trump really is the biggest and the best... at being an utter cock.
