Senator Amy Klobuchar throws her hat in 2020 election ring

The president-who has always been a climate-change truther-tweeted: "Well, it happened again".

Indeed, Klobuchar did announce her campaign Sunday amid growing blizzard conditions.

In response, Klobuchar scolded the president for disbelieving in climate change and even took a jab at his hair. Her crime? Discussing climate change while standing out in the middle of a particularly snowy Minnesota winter day.

Klobuchar was asked Sunday about the reports of high staff turnover and the loss of potential staff for the presidential campaign she announced in Minneapolis. "And what I said to [Trump] back was, 'I'd like to see-when he called me a snow-woman-I'd like to see how his hair would fare in a blizzard'".

Klobuchar spoke further about Trump's attack during a Monday interview on "Good Morning America", telling co-anchor George Stephanopoulos that sometimes, the best strategy to dealing with the president is to simply ignore some of his attacks.

"I'm sorry if it still snows in the world, but the point is that we know climate change is happening", Klobuchar argued. "Just this last year, it was one of the four hottest years in the history of the world". "We see this Greenland ice sheet melting".

Klobuchar responded to Trump's tweet by declaring that science is on her side. "So that's why I think we can not ignore it". Blizzard warnings were in effect across south central Minnesota Sunday afternoon, and the senator announced her candidacy in Minneapolis. It's a homegrown one. I don't come from money.

"You have to pick your battles with him, and I think you have to use some humor, like I got to do yesterday right away", she explained.

Klobuchar later told CNN's Suzanne Malveaux that her icy cold speech signified her "grit".
