Donald Trump bleated once again into the ether and wee hours of Thursday morning that his hurricane prediction about Alabama being “hurt” was real and that his enemies in the media — and his own government at the Weather Service, apparently — refused to see it his way for some confounded reason. Once again, the laughter rose and #sharpiegate took on renewed life. TV commentators told him to “let it go” and the assumption was that he would. But then, Thursday evening, Mr. Have Thumbs Will Tweet just had to have at it again. He just simply cannot leave this alone. That says Alabama has a 5% chance of getting hit by 39 mph wind. You don’t even know how to read your own fake map! — Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) September 5, 2019 Trump: "Right here, Alex, right in my Alabama." — Alyce Miller (@AlyceLMiller) September 5, 2019 However, none of the projections track the "cone" as reaching Alabama at any point, which is how the NOAA actually defines the potential path of the hurricane itself, and not the outlying areas that would not likely suffer much, if any, damage. — Jules Suzdaltsev (@jules_su) September 5, 2019 I love this. He's a "trump-simus" a stubborn asshole named Trump who insists on being right even when it's been proven conclusively that he's dead wrong and should just STFU. — Ursula Faw (@ursulafaw56) September 5, 2019 That’s one possibility, that Trump is a mumpsimus. Or, is it conceivable that he’s really a frustrated meteorologist? That being the next Stormy Rottman is an unfulfilled desire of Trump’s? If Trump were a meteorologist: "Lots of rain, big rains in the Middle East – you know, right around Virginia & Kentucky. Asia will be sunny – in Chinatown over here. Then this hurricane will be situated in a duck pond near Omaha. Sun's gonna set in the north."#SharpieGate — Craig Rozniecki (@CraigRozniecki) September 4, 2019 " And then as you can see, the sun will rise next to those island called Puerto Rico. Bad very bad. Can you imagine how much damage it will do to that island. It's already in a bad shape. That's wonderful isn't it ? I might send some plane loads of paper towels to save them. " — solotej (@TejpalS98269355) September 5, 2019 We can expect water, big water, the wettest water yet. And maybe a boat or two will wash up on a suburban street and Cantaloupe Caligula can make a joke out of it. Or, maybe Trump can FINALLY be right, if he just takes a page from the Democrats’ book and WILLS the hurricane to go to Alabama? Remember that, the Democrats were “willing” the economy to tank? Hey, if we can do that, what’s directing a little rain and lightning to move a few degrees on the map, huh? Trump can do that. He needs to skype me and I’ll read him a Wiccan chant. (psssst…I’ll read him the one that will turn himself into a toad, but don’t anybody tell……)
Donald Trump has never known when to just keep his mouth shut. If you’re just now tuning into the tragedy of Hurricane Dorian, five are dead in the Bahamas and Dorian is set to make landfall on the southeastern United States by late Monday night. Trump has been busy retweeting weather reports, plus making up his own. Here’s how that’s working out. ….when in fact, under certain original scenarios, it was in fact correct that Alabama could have received some “hurt.” Always good to be prepared! But the Fake News is only interested in demeaning and belittling. Didn’t play my whole sentence or statement. Bad people! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 2, 2019 Here’s what the lightweight weather service had to say after Trump tweeted out his idiotic warning this morning to his 64 Million followers, to their 53,000. Understandably, they were worried that a lot of people would be unnecessarily alarmed by Trump’s wrong information. Alabama will NOT see any impacts from #Dorian. We repeat, no impacts from Hurricane #Dorian will be felt across Alabama. The system will remain too far east. #alwx — NWS Birmingham (@NWSBirmingham) September 1, 2019 I live in England and MOST of us are laughing at him too ! — John M (@johnny_malham) September 2, 2019 I live in California and we haven’t known whether to laugh, cry, shit or go blind since Trump got elected. We were talking about leaving the union in summer of 2016, however. Well hell since your throwing crap against the wall to see if it sticks you might as well add Mississippi, Louisiana, and Tennessee to your list of possible hurricane victims! That will show ole John Carl a thing or two. You’ll unnecessarily scare citizens but who cares right? pic.twitter.com/K5NCyz9THn — M Chuhaloff (@MichaelChuhalo1) September 2, 2019 Shut the fuck up. You know NOTHING. And you prove it several times a day, at least. You're fucking idiot. A moron. A vacuous simpleton who plays the role of bully because he can't compete intellectually. But you'll soon be finished and then we're going to put you in prison. — Reality Monger ????️????/ #TrumpIsARat #IndictTrump (@MikeFreethinker) September 2, 2019 Does Trump think he is using the Force thru his Tweets by trying to make us think we didn't actually see what he wrote yesterday. BTW, the force only works on the weak minded…like republicans! — Barney's Nose (@BarneysNose) September 2, 2019 See, that’s the problem. Trump is now at a stage in his dementia where he can’t remember what he said an hour ago, but audio and video recorders are always going, plus people around him have ears and functioning brains, and they can remember. And what makes it worse, is that if he would concede, at least occasionally, to having messed something up, things wouldn’t be so bad. Most people will forgive a screw up, especially if followed by an apology. But the child within, which in Trump’s case, is the whole enchilada, cannot admit ever to wrongdoing. So, the status quo remains, Donald Trump is flawless and it’s the institution of journalism that is at fault. Evidently, the media is supposed to ignore reality and only publish stories which validate whatever Trump said, no matter how wrong or insane, and commentary which is constantly flattering. This […]
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
