  1. Screw California and their socialist disaster. The weather is changing and there is nothing you can do about it because it has been going on for millions of years.

  2. Another culture war distraction, red states will cheer on going after bad old, "elitist" California and cheer on government intervention into a once free market economy.

  3. MSNBCannibals lost in Climate HOAX delusional stupidity as of late.. Actually MSNBCannibals are always delusional and stupid ZERO CREDIBILITY comedy channel

  4. More STUPID logic from a STUPID unscrupulous administration. Antitrust laws exist to protect consumers. Colluding to the protect the environment is NOT illegal.

  5. Trump is DEEP STATE that's why he is working diligently for big oil and now the military-industrial complex…the ones who really pull the strings on our future

  6. gazprom and aramco must have called….
    "Donny boy, either we sell you some oil or we call in our debt..and remember what happened to that Khashoggi
    guy…you got a pretty good thing going there…shame if something happened to it…"

  7. Evil, Failed, Un Christian, Un American Trump is the Worst thing to happen to America since Slavery.
    Trump is Destroying Everything good about our Great Nation.

  8. Even if the gov sets low standards….. the car manufacturers can still move forwards to build the best environmentally friendly vehicle they can….

  9. Trump is a complete moron who will only side with his backers: big oil and large dirty energy companies. What a buffoon.

    Drain the Swamp!

  10. For all you screaming states rights on this federal issue ( besides Obamacare showcasing that hypocrisy) Can a state be allowed to decrease their epa/cafe standards less than federal standards?

  11. Maybe the parents of Greta should have been ‘environmentalsick’ childless? To Climate Kid Greta: “Nana NANA na!” For more than 50 years 🏆 Climate Alarmists in the ‘scientific’ community and environmental movement have not gotten 🥁 even one (1) prediction correct, but they do have a perfect record of getting 41 predictions wrong. 🤪In other words, on at least 41 occasions, these so-called experts have predicted some terrible environmental catastrophe was imminent … and it never happened. ✝️‘The liars who give false witnesses will go to the Lake of Fire?’ ‘For ever?’🙈🥵

  12. FAKE LYING NEWS SABOTAGES THERE OWN COLLAPSING PATHETIC RATINGS,KEEP LYING MSNBC , NOTHING CAN OR WILL STOP WHATS COMING NOTHING AND OUR GREAT WINNING PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL BE REELECTED IN 2020 AND FAKE LYING NEWS MEDIA WILL BE IN GUANTANAMO BAY PRISON FOR TREASON AND SEDITION AGAINST A SITTING PRESIDENT OF THE U.S.PANIC ,PANIC KEEP PANICKING

  13. Our Governer should have a State AG, or DA indict Trump.Everybody forgot, 1) there is no law against indicting a sitting, there is a policy, it is 1 piece of paper, it actually means nothiing.Muehler was the Great Hunter- He got everyone, including Trump, but he made up his mind before he started that could not( not true) and would not indict a sitting P.

  14. Thats all that happened and Our House so far on a 10,000x losing streak is in the middle of another foolish fiasco(everyone acted just like this 2x w/Muehler and were destroyed and we( some of us warned them;they needed a Scapegoat; and MSNBC is Fox left now- go into the next thing ASAP. Besides, a State definitely can prosecute a siitting President!

  15. Here ya go Republicans. As long as they meet the standard they are legal. Trump wants to remove THEIR RIGHT to exceed the standard.
