Pat Sajak Trolls: ‘Global Warming Alarmists Are Unpatriotic Racists’

Is Pat Sajak’s Twitter account a puzzle worth solving?

The longtime Wheel of Fortune host used his Twitter account Monday night to take a shot at “global warming alarmists”:

Earlier Tuesday, he’d written something that was more clearly a joke alluding to the climate change debate.

Then on Monday, Sajak wrote yet another message, this time suggesting he was just looking to rile people up.

Sajak hasn’t been shy about voicing his conservative views in the past, and his Twitter account is filled with one-liners aimed at liberals and political opponents. But earlier this month, he wrote that he was trying to become more “Twitter-hip.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
