Right-wing commentator Ann Coulter took to Twitter on Monday night to respond to a report that the impact of Hurricane Harvey has been made worse by climate change.

“I don’t believe Hurricane Harvey is God’s punishment for Houston electing a lesbian mayor. But that is more credible than ‘climate change,'” Coulter wrote.

Houston, of course, elected the nation’s first openly LGBTQ mayor, Annise Parker, in 2009. However, Parker left office due to term limits in 2015. Houston’s current mayor is Sylvester Turner.
