Star Pitcher Explains Why Trump Is To Blame For Recent Hurricanes

Some things are best left unsaid. By extension, every thought that pops into your cranium does not need to be shared with the world. While people saying stupid things stretches all the way back to the first time actual words were uttered, it’s become an uncontrollable problem in today’s always-connected world. While people remain responsible for their own actions, thoughts, and words, we can directly point the finger at social media for causing the spike.

As Fox News shares, we have another entrant into the ‘that really shouldn’t have been shared’ category, and it comes courtesy of star New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard. It seems that Syndergaard has some more things on his mind besides the fact that the Mets are in the midst of a dreadful season, and he just had to share it with the world.

“U.S. pulls out of Paris Climate Accord. Then hit by 4 hurricanes in 6 weeks. Global Warming Karma?” he wrote.

Wait, what? So the US has exited a non-binding agreement that doesn’t do a whole lot of good in the first place, and that has somehow magically led to devastating hurricanes? There’s many ways that we can describe such a thought, but that doesn’t include the phrase ‘brilliance in action.’

In fairness to Syndergaard, he’s obviously not pleased with President Donald Trump’s decision. Zero problem there. He’s perfectly entitled to feel that way, and it would even be perfectly fine for him to eloquently share his views as to why the decision was wrong. Who knows - maybe he has something of substance to add to the conversation that may spark a reconsideration among skeptics. Unfortunately, he didn’t take that approach.

He dropped a ridiculously insensitive tweet to get his point across, and the chances of his point being taken seriously by those that disagree with him are nil.

“Stick to baseball because weather obviously isn’t your strong point,” shared one user.

“You just lost a lifetime Mets fan. Stick to pitching, if you can stay healthy for even one freaking season. Stupidity Karma?” added another commenter.

“Stick to what you know (baseball) and leave the science to scientists. Mets fans don't care about where you stand on political issues,” wrote another user.

Of course, he received the social media equivalent of backslaps and high fives from those that see things his way.

“I'm with you Noah!” wrote one user.

“Right on brother!” added another commenter.

In short, this is another example of a bunch of noise from a famous person that doesn’t do a lick of good. While it seems to be a remarkably tough point to grasp for the famous folks that feel the need to vent to the world, it is possible to make a point without alienating people and ticking a lot of people off. Exactly what good comes from that strategy? Does it advance the conversation? Unless you consider more arguing a form of advancement, the answer is no.

If you can’t make your points in a non-inflammatory fashion, common sense suggests you don’t have much of a point to begin with.
