What’s Rick Scott’s strategy for yes/no questions? Dodge, duck, and alienate voters.

Yesterday, Rick Scott refused four times in a row to answer, yes or no, if he believes climate change is real. What did he say? “I don’t think I’m qualified.”

You’re right, Rick. If you’re the governor of Florida — a state already feeling the effects of climate change — and you still cannot acknowledge scientific fact, you aren’t qualified to be governor.

But he wasn’t done yet. Next, when asked about minimum wage, Scott dismissed the idea — which is backed by an overwhelming majority of Floridians — as simply “job loss,” and refused to answer the question. When pressed on whether or not he supports any increase in the minimum wage, he again refused to answer with a yes or no.

I’m sure that answer gives comfort to the hundreds of thousands of hard-working Floridians struggling to make ends meet without a living wage.
