The saga of Florida’s ban of the “C-words” climate change is just getting ridiculous. “Even as Florida Governor Rick Scott denies reports of an unwritten policy banning administration officials from using the term ‘climate change,’ an employee of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection says he was suspended for expressing his views on climate change,” reports MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. The Florida official, Bart Bibler, joins Hayes on his show All In With Chris Hayes to tell his story.

1. OMFD!

This is so unbelievably out there that it's hilarious. And yet, it's exactly what this country is coming to. If they can't make you follow their agenda, you will be silenced.

The governor is obviously just a little ahead of his time.

Florida. Exactly where Disney World should be. The unbelievable becomes reality
