EPA Chief Engaged With Conspiracy Theorists And Liked A Racist Obama Picture On Social Media

Instead of worrying about the incredibly bleak future of our planet, acting chief of the Environmental Protection Agency, Andrew Wheeler, has been spending his time using social media keeping up with conspiracy theories and liking racist depictions of the Obamas.

Wheeler, 53, is a former coal lobbyist and Republican aide. He is also a self-proclaimed “prolific social media user.”

American Bridge 21st Century, a Democratic political action committee, discovered several posts where Wheeler engaged in rather questionable behavior.

The first example of Wheeler’s extreme views was a January 2013 “like” on a racist Facebook post about Barack and Michelle Obama.

American Bridge 21st Century next uncovered a comment Wheeler made in July 2014 on a post regarding Hillary Clinton’s Christian faith.

In February, Wheeler retweeted Jack Posobiec, a right-wing enthusiast and propagator of the debunked “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory.

He also liked a post in which conservative documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza discredited Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Brett Kavanaugh.

And Wheeler liked a Tweet by InfoWars editor Paul Joseph Watson, which bemoaned James Woods’ Twitter suspension.

People can’t believe how the EPA Chief is spending his time.

Mr. Wheeler, it is time that you stop entertaining the ideas of racists and lunatics and start focusing on the disappearing coral reef and food shortages that are a real threat to humanity right now.
