Don Cherry attacked for saying ‘cuckaloos’ believe in global warming, Catherine McKenna responds with hysteria

The most outspoken man in sports, iconic Canadian commentator and television personality Don Cherry is once again facing criticism after commenting on global warming, calling believers “cuckaloos.”

During his CBC Hockey Night in Canada segment, Coach’s Corner, on Saturday, a day after groundhog Wiarton Willie (Canada’s version of the events held in Pennsylvania) predicted six more weeks of winter, Cherry implied that Canada’s ongoing cold weather was contradictory to the concept of global warming.

“He predicts six more weeks of cold weather”, Cherry said, seated in front of a plush Willie. “Now, I’d like to ask you with your left-wing, pinko friends: What about the warming trend?” he asked co-host Ron MacLean.

MacLean tried to change the subject, Cherry persisted.

“I’m just asking, the cuckaloos always say ‘the warming trend’; we’re freezing to death,” he said.

“We’re not totally cuckaloos if you look at some of the things going on in our world,” MacLean replied.

The formed Boston Bruins coach has been known to be unapologetically opinionated on and off screen, commenting on Toronto’s bike lanes, politics, European imports to the NHL, and whether or not female journalists may go inside NHL locker rooms to seek interviews.

Cherry was met with attacks, even one from Canada’s own Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna, ripe with hysteria:

“For hockey you can turn to Coach’s Corner if you want, for climate change, Canadians turn to scientists. But Don Cherry might want to think about all those kids who might not have outdoor rinks to play on some day. https://twitter.com/wildfiremike/status/959986182502334464  –  @cathmckenna
