Rabble-rousing rogue rangers troll @RealDonaldTrump: Favorite moments

Six days into President Trump’s administration and a ragtag group of rabble-rousing rogue rangers from the National Park Service have already started a twitter boxing match with the leader of the free world.

So how did employees of a relatively small government agency with a budget less than Mr. Trump’s net worth decide this was a good idea?  (NPS 2017 recommended budget 3.1 billion USD, Donald Trump net worth 3.7 billion USD, Source: Forbes)

To answer that question we need to take a stroll down memory lane. Last Friday during President Trump’s inauguration, the National Park Service went “rogue” with a little free speech and tweeted a picture of the difference in crowd size between President Obama’s 2009 inauguration and President’s Trump’s.  To be clear, did anyone really expect those living in Washington D.C. (the epicenter of left-leaning folks) to flood the streets and cheer for the man whose catchphrase was “you’re fired?” Probably not. However, when someone within the administration ordered all official NPS Twitter accounts censored, clearly tempers flared within an agency whose mission is as clear as the air in “Badass” Badlands National Park:

“The National Park Service preserves unimpaired the natural and cultural resources and values of the National Park System for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations.”

The mission, the badge and flat top hats have carried out that tradition for literally 100 years. The President’s stances on environmental issues appear to have forced the hand of a few concerned citizens who are not concerned about making America great again, but rather keeping America great. Drum roll….  A resistance is born with trolling sarcasm and facts. The BEST and GREATEST FACTS of all of time!  All in 140 characters at a time.

So who is this band of #RogueRangers? We don’t know. Of course we would like to - not to publicize their identities but rather to buy them a much deserved beer that hopefully would help steady their resolve in the face of executive oppression.

Within minutes of the President’s inauguration, all references to climate change were removed from the White House website.  Now Reuters is reporting that the Trump Administration has instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to remove all mentions of climate change from it’s website. This is not surprising given the Trump Administration’s pick to head the EPA. Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt brags on his state biography page that he “is a leading advocate against the EPA’s activist agenda.”  Activist agenda’s  that include protecting human health, the environment, air, water, and land.

There a few absolutes in life, but among them are science and math. Numbers don’t lie, but let’s square off in this bare-knuckle boxing match of climate change anyway:

In the red corner we have Rex Tillerson, Scott Pruitt and President Trump (and apparently the People’s Republic of China).  In the blue corner we have the #RogueRangers from @AltUSNatParkService,  badasses from the Badlands and some super smart folks at NASA.

ROUND 1 & FIGHT, ER...TWEET

Left jab from President Trump, who has repeatedly called climate change a “HOAX” that was created by the Chinese:

NASA takes the 140 character blow and counters with:

Sea Levels rising roughly 17 centimeters (6.7 inches) in the last century. The rate in the last decade, however, is nearly double that of the last century.

We can continue for another 11 rounds, but what’s the point. Instead, we just list our favorite tweets:
