"Relax snowflake," Frosty tells the kids. "You're just brainwashed by the liberal media!"
Frosty the Snowman doesn't care much about the looming threat of climate change, even if it will turn him into a puddle.
In a hilarious politically-themed segment on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" Thursday night, we found out what it would be like if "Frosty the Snowman" was actually a Donald Trump supporter in 2018 -- one who blissfully ignores the dire threat of global warming.
Using a CNN-like news segment as an introduction, the clip began with a story from the network's reporter, Jake Tapper, where he echoed a message from government scientists: a warning about the "unparalleled period of warmth" in the Artic, due to "human-caused climate change." Tapper pointed out this is the second climate change warning from the White House. The first of which, Trump openly doubted.
The clip then transformed into "Frosty the Snowman in 2018." The late-night show put a hilarious and very topical spin on the 1969 Christmas classic.
"You're made of snow and the world is rapidly warming," a red-haired kid told the snowman.
"Fake news! I stand with President Trump on this one," Frosty replied, while trading out his top hat for a MAGA cap.
Another child reiterated the importance of the "huge imminent threat," but Frosty, although made of snow, sided with Trump.
"Relax snowflake," Frosty replied to the kids. "You're just brainwashed by the liberal media!"
The snowman began to melt, but wouldn't admit that it was global warming turning him into a puddle, which he ultimately became.
All that was left was a MAGA hat and a sad, wet puddle.
