Jeb! Bush is obviously not up to date on pope-related viral memes, or he would not have given this particular reason Pope Francis should shut up about climate change already:
"He's not a scientist, he's a religious leader," Bush said, according to a video posted by the Democratic opposition research group American Bridge.
To be fair, the widely shared meme in question claims that Francis has a master's degree in chemistry; while he has a degree as a chemical technician, it is not a master's degree. NONETHELESS, you've got a Latin American studies major telling a guy who studied chemistry and worked as a chemist and
is in agreement with scientific consensus to shut up because he's not a scientist.
And seriously, I'm not a scientist but I'm able to look at the overwhelming scientific consensus and conclude that I'm with the scientists, not the Republican politicians interested mainly in the continuing right of corporations to do whatever the hell they want, on this one. So Republicans can really take their "I'm not a scientist but I'm comfortable dismissing what scientists say and also what non-scientists who agree with the scientists say" schtick and drown it in the bathtub they've got waiting for the government.
Bush also wants to "Put aside Pope Francis on the subject of any political conversation," where "political conversation" is defined as "topic on which he disagrees with me."
