Interior nominee Rep. Deb Haaland’s previous Twitter blast accusing Republicans of not believing in science came back to haunt her at Tuesday’s confirmation hearing.
Sen. John Barrasso, Wyoming Republican, noted that he and two other GOP members of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee — Sens. Bill Cassidy and Roger Marshall — are medical doctors, then cited her Oct. 7 tweet saying that “Republicans don’t believe in science,” complete with handclaps.
“Just a couple of months ago, you tweeted, ‘Republicans don’t believe in science.’ Pretty broad statement that you made there,” said Mr. Barrasso, an orthopedic surgeon. “This was in October of 2020, so not too long ago. We’re also Republicans. Do you think that as medical doctors we don’t believe in science? How do you stand by this statement?”

The New Mexico Democrat appeared to be caught off guard, replying, “Senator, I, I, yes, if you’re a doctor, I would assume that you believe in science.”
