I still have not figured how to address this, if I want to shame the person publicly or just make the point in less confrontational manner, but it will not stand obviously, as the lie was told to a group.

One addresses it precisely as you addressed it: by stating calmly but affirmatively: "No, the Tea Party person didn't make the claim that the government controlled the weather. What the Tea Party person actually said was that the government was manipulating and misrepresenting the climate data. You do understand the distinction, don't you?"

Then stop talking. The librul idiots will eventually be identified for the idiots they truly are.
