Senator Mike Lee of Utah has a great sense of humor. He gave a speech this week about the Green New Deal which featured Reagan riding on a dinosaur, Aqua Man and much more.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Mike Lee Compares GND’s Seriousness to Reagan on a Velociraptor

Sen. Mike Lee (R., Utah.) delivered a speech replete with Star Wars references, Aquaman cartoons, and Ronald Reagan on a velociraptor to colleagues Tuesday that he said addressed the Green New Deal “with the level of seriousness it deserves.”

“This is a picture of former President Ronald Reagan firing a machine gun while riding on the back of a dinosaur,” Lee said, introducing a drawing by artist Jason Heuser. “You will note both the rocket launcher strapped to his back, and the stirring patriotism of the velociraptor holding up the tattered American flag.”

“This image has as much to do with overcoming Soviet communism in the 20th century as the Green New Deal has to do with overcoming climate change in the 21st,” he added. “The aspirations of the proposal have been called radical and extreme. But mostly they are ridiculous.”

In his speech, Lee sought to highlight some of the ridiculous policy ideas associated with the Green New Deal, including banning airplanes—after which, he said, Alaskans could navigate their state on tauntauns while Hawaii would be reached by giant sea horses, a la Aquaman’s trusty steed Storm.

“Now, I’m the first to admit that a massive fleet of giant, trained seahorses would be very cool. But we have no idea about scalability or domestic capacity in this sector,” Lee added.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was NOT happy about the speech. She published a couple of tweets about it.

Why do so many people on the left lack a sense of humor?
