Al Roker Slams 'Moron' Jim Inhofe For Bringing Snowball To Senate

The "Today" anchor talks climate change on HuffPost Live.

Al Roker had some harsh words for Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) during an appearance on HuffPost Live on Friday.

During a conversation with host Josh Zepps about his new book The Storm Of The Century, Roker was direct about his impression of climate change deniers like Inhofe, who brought a snowball to the Senate floor earlier this year in an effort to disprove global warming.

“There was some senator [Inhofe] that got on the floor of the Senate this past winter, and holds up a snowball on the floor of the Senate. What a moron," Roker said. "‘I got a snowball!’ Are you crazy? It’s called climate change. Climate doesn’t just happen outside your door, sir. It happens all around the world. And when I saw that I thought, ‘I can’t believe this.’"

 Roker concluded with a bit of a musical interlude worth of Disney's "Frozen": "Do you want to build a snowman? Who are you, Elsa? Let it go!”
