Watch: Green New Deal vs Reagan on a Dinosaur

Senator Mike Lee makes fun of the New Green Deal by bringing a picture to the Senate chamber of Ronald Reagan riding a dinosaur. Lee gave the speech just a couple hours before the Senate was about to begin voting on the Green New deal resolution.

"This is a picture of former President Ronald Reagan firing a machine gun while riding on the back of a dinosaur. You will note both the rocket launcher strapped to his back, and the stirring patriotism of the velociraptor holding up the tattered American flag. Now, critics might quibble with this depiction of the climactic battle of the Cold War, because – while awesome – in real life there was no climactic battle, with or without velociraptors. The Cold War was won without firing a shot. But that quibble actually serves our purposes here today, Mr. President. Because this image has as much to do with overcoming Soviet communism in the 20th century as the Green New Deal has to do with overcoming climate change in the 21st. The aspirations of the proposal have been called radical and extreme. But mostly they are ridiculous..."

The point of Utah Republican doing this was he wanted to emphasize the 'seriousness' of the Green New Deal to the Senate.
