Everything is politics now.

After Hurricane Maria -
Quote:
3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000 This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!
—President Donald Trump, September 13, 2018[33]

A few people may say- ultimately what does it matter what that moron says - let's not make a natural disaster political.

But doesn't reality and some semblance of truth matter? Like it or not, what the leader of most powerful nation in the world affects this.
His comments muddy the waters - not only does it insult the survivors, and family members of the affected - it effects response, and relief efforts. Donations to Red Cross etc.

An accounting for death tolls - yeah it is kind of ghoulish and the media does play it up for story value - but shouldn't the #s matter for logistical preparations for next time, as well as history. (statement, not a question).

So Trump threatens to fire Wilbur if he doesn’t threaten to fire NOAA guys if they don’t send out their statement.

Ah yes, the classic tactic in which your enemies set up shop on a a nearby island and spend months, years, pretending to live there so that the next time a hurricane wipes the place out they can impersonate refugees and slip into the country undetected.

Much more effective than coming here on a Saudi passport.

"Dear God, I don't ask for much. In fact, I don't think I've directly prayed to you since I was 10 or 11. But I am praying now. Please, PLEASE, deliver us from the despicable evil man that is ruining our country. A lightning bolt, a tough piece of hamberder, poisoned covfefe, stroke, ebola. I don't care how you do it. Just remove this despicable man from the world. We will all be much better off.

Thank you."


Lord hear our prayer.

While the media all discuss the vaping ban, the Trump admin is succeeding in blocking all asylum seekers from entering at the southern border, and is poised to lower to 0 the number of refugees the US will accept, from anywhere, no matter how they arrive.

This is an outrage. Beyond disgusting for a country of our wealth and history. These are the most desperate, least fortunate people in the world. [expletive] Trump. [expletive] Bannon. [expletive] Miller.

What good are we if we reject refugees? I'd say no [expletive] good at all. So much power, so many resources and no humanity.

The illegal immigrant policies and actions are evil. No refugees? That's next level.
