Trump had a message for the millions of people who are in the path of Hurricane Florence. Trump warned the American people that the hurricane is in fact, wet.
Trump said, “They haven’t seen anything like what’s coming at us in 25, 30 years maybe ever it’s tremendously big and tremendously wet.”
Evacuate. Do Not Count On Trump To Save You
If you are in the path of the storm, please realize that Donald Trump seems to have just figured out that hurricanes are wet. This man and his administration will not save you. If you needed more incentive to get out of harm’s way, listen to Trump, and then run because as the 3,000 deaths in Puerto Rico demonstrate, the Trump administration should not be counted on to respond or care about the loss of human life.
Trump Sounded Giddy About Florence
Trump sounded excited and giddy that Florence is coming. He also used the same photo-op to try to rewrite the history of his response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, and generally looked like a toddler being taught about hurricanes. Trump never gives off an image of calm leadership. This president should be sober and warning people about the danger that is coming. Instead, Donald Trump selling Florence like a special episode of The Apprentice.
A man whose thought process doesn’t go beyond hurricanes are wet is not going to do a good job protecting American lives.
