You may remember Scott Baio from sitcom Happy Days and its spin-off Joanie Loves Chachi, as well as the classic Charles in Charge. A few weeks ago, Baio endorsed Donald Trump to be America’s next president because, as he told Fox News this weekend, Trump “is the only guy that has the will to attack and to fight.” Also Baio thinks the US-Mexico border wall is a good idea.

On Saturday, Baio expressed his support for Trump in the form of a Starbucks coffee cup. On Sunday, he expressed it in the form of a tweet about climate change that is straight from the Trump playbook:

Reminds me of the classic:

Dear Scott Baio: The continued existence of weather—yes, including snow!—does not disprove climate change.
