No words. Sorry. I simply have no words. Thankfully, David Sims, writing in Seth Meyers Proves He’s the Anti-Fallon for The Atlantic, does: When Jimmy Fallon talked to Donald Trump on The Tonight Show last week, he ruffled the presidential candidate’s hair. Seth Meyers, the host of Fallon’s former show Late Night, had a slightly […]
I’ve only included the beginning and end of a very long—22,000+ years, duh!—timeline. Please take your time to view the entire history so that you can more fully understand the dastardly lies the fossil fuel industry are spewing out their smokestacks so that they can acquire more toys.
