TUMULTY: "I think what we think — what we’ve come to understand is he’s not going to stop doing it and that these tweets are not going to settle down into something that resembles sort of a more normal style of presidential communication. And I think that this — these tweets today certainly fit right into that. I mean, every fifth grader could tell you that climate change refers to unpredictable weather patterns. We’re coming out of a year when Houston and Puerto Rico were under water, California was on fire. You’ve got to assume that he is essentially just kind of poking a stick at -- at his critics."
