This Monday, a climate change event took place in New York City. During the event, California Gov. Jerry Brown compared President Donald Trump’s supporters to prehistoric cave dwellers.

According to reports by Politico this is what the Democratic governor said:

“They’re both kind of very similar. You should check out the derivation of ‘Trump-ite’ and ‘troglodyte,’ because they both refer to people who dwell in deep, dark caves.”


On Saturday, Brown signed two bills that plan $1.5 billion in spending on California environmental initiatives. That was before he stated that the President’s rhetoric and actions on North Korea and climate change are “stupid and silly.” He continued by saying:

“President Trump is the null hypothesis, which he’s proven. Everything he’s doing is … stupid and dangerous and silly. I mean, come on, really, calling the North Korean dictator ‘Rocket Man?’ … He is accelerating the reversal through his own absurdity. These other powers are going to gang up on Mr. Trump, and he’s going to find out, ‘You’re fired.’”


Brown’s speech, which was the first in a series of climate talks, occurred at the same time with the President’s meeting Monday with world leaders at the United Nations. President Trump was set to address the opening session of the United Nations General Assembly this Tuesday. The main discussion topic is expected to be climate change, reports The Washington Times.

However, Brown did say he’s optimistic about his own climate change efforts:

“It takes what we’re doing today and this week, and all the other things that we have to do to finally put the nail in, I don’t want to say in Trump’s coffin. … That’s a tweet, so I better not do that. But we’re getting there. We’re making change. So I’m very optimistic in the face of Washington’s absent leadership.”
