Speaking on ABC’s This Week, Will scoffed at the heat waves and drought that so far have killed 35 people, broken over 3,000 all-time heat records across the United States, and spurred some of the worst western wildfires in recorded history. “Come the winter, there will be a cold snap, lots of snow, and the same guys … will be lecturing us,” he said. “We’re having some hot weather. Get over it.”
