Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), who acknowledged she “can be tough” with her staff after reports she mistreats people working for her, can get tough with the president, too.

After formally kicking off her 2020 presidential campaign Sunday in her snow-covered home state, Klobuchar was met with mockery from President Donald Trump on social media.

Trump, in a tweet, once again touted his ignorant argument that cold weather disproves global warming, trolling Klobuchar for addressing climate change “while standing in a virtual blizzard of snow.”

“By the end of her speech she looked like a Snowman(woman)!” Trump wrote.

But Klobuchar went straight for the ― hair: 

Science is on my side, @realDonaldTrump. Looking forward to debating you about climate change (and many other issues). And I wonder how your hair would fare in a blizzard? ☃️

Aside from the environment, Klobuchar’s platforms include universal health care, criminal justice reform, gun control and curbing big tech’s abuse of privacy. 

She enters a growing pool of Democrats seeking the Oval Office, including fellow Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Kamala Harris (Calif.), as well as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii) and Obama-era Cabinet member Julián Castro.
