Barbara Comstock (R-VA10) staged eight new photo-ops over the weekend in a clever rebuttal of voter concerns about Trump’s climate change policies.
While thousands of marchers participated in hundreds of climate events over the weekend, Comstock tweeted pictures of herself attending:
- a pancake breakfast
- a community art festival
- a very nice picnic
- a local health fair
- a cultural celebration
- a local police station
- a meeting with an elementary school student
- a sports dinner
Comstock’s disdain for the environment has been well-documented by the League of Conservation Voters, which tabulates votes on climate and pollution-related legislation. Her support for the Trump climate agenda has been unwavering.
She has refused to engage directly with unscripted voters despite increasing public pressure to hold a real town hall explaining her position on a wide range of issues.
Comstock has held 97 photo-ops in the 116 days since January 3, the start of the 115th Congress.
