Even Hurricane Harvey is like, "what a blowhard."
 
2017-08-29 04:39:45 PM  
Yes, Donny, it's always all about you.

What is up with Melania and that tacky "FLOTUS" cap she's wearing today?
 
2017-08-29 04:41:30 PM  
I will enjoy shiatting on his grave.
 
2017-08-29 04:42:12 PM  
Can we just offer to build him a statue and have him go away in exchange?

It's so the Secret Service can tell which is today's model.
 
2017-08-29 04:43:11 PM  
I will admit, it is surprising at how callous that was. Refreshingly so. Didn't think he could do that to me anymore.

I wonder if Trump will comment on the crowd size standing around his deathbed.

I wonder if people in the crowd had anywhere else to go? Fire departments often are used as emergency shelters.
 
2017-08-29 04:46:08 PM  
He keeps pushing the narrative that everything is fine. As much as I'd like to see his line of BS blow up in his face I hope he's right. I hope FEMA it's working with the local authorities in an effective manner.

I have a co-worker that hasn't been heard from for 36 hours. This shiat is serious and I mean every word of what I said above.

The realist in me knows he's full of shiat and is going to humble this thing worse that GWB did with Katrina.

At the very least I am happy that dense MF'er understands that this is unprecedented.

Trump is turning grownups into cutters. "I cut so I can feel something. I just can't feel anymore."

"Harvey. It sounds like such an innocent name, but isn't."

This farking guy.

They're apparently in one of the areas that WASN'T badly flooded.

HerptheDerp: Can we just offer to build him a statue and have him go away in exchange?


I already offered to watch The Apprentice, and tweet that it was the best show ever every weekif he promised to go back.

I am prepared to make sacrifices for America.

"We love you, you are special, we are here to take care of you," Trump said. "It's going well."

What's going well? The hurricane? Can't be the recovery effort because Texas is still in the midst of this mess. Does anyone know what he's talking about?
 
2017-08-29 04:48:14 PM  
Trump is not sick but he's not well, and he's so orange cause he's from Hell.
 
2017-08-29 04:49:01 PM  
Trump is in Texas? Geeeesh, Texas only has room for 1 national disaster....
 
2017-08-29 04:49:24 PM  
5 bucks says he doesn't even know the name of the county he gave the speech in.

I was about to throw something at the TV screen this morning when the CBS reporter started interviewing Trump fans waiting for him to show his face in public. It was like "screw those libs who are drowning in Houston, we want to see our savior."
 
2017-08-29 04:51:41 PM  
And from another article:
Before he left town, though, Trump made a point to congratulate FEMA Administrator Brock Long, saying he's "becom[e] very famous on television in the last couple of days."

That's all that means anything to Trump, farking publicity.
 
2017-08-29 04:51:59 PM  
He then honored the first responders for their hard work by giving out laminated copies of the 2016 Electoral College map.

KingBiefWhistle: I will admit, it is surprising at how callous that was. Refreshingly so. Didn't think he could do that to me anymore.


Same thing happened to me with the Arpaio "ratings" crack.  It's nice to know he can always find new ways to disappoint us.

Look at that biatch eating those crackers like she owns the place.
 
2017-08-29 04:53:48 PM  
Just like with the Boy Scouts, he only uses a few sets of phrases when his string is pulled.

My Mom's boyfriend (they're both in their 80s) is named Harvey, and he is the nicest person ever. I spent the first few days of this storm mentally saying "wait, what?" for a split second when everyone was discussing how horrible Harvey is.

That said, Trump sucks. So impressed that people had the mental and emotional wherewithal at this point to make protest signs.

No soul. No soul. You're the soul!

The hat was probably Trump's idea.  The yokels that buy the MAGA hats will shell out the bucks for the FLOTUS hat, too.  Just imagine Cletus giving that FLOTUS hat to his wife for an anniversary present instead of a kitchen apron that was marked 20% off at Hobby Lobby.

i posted this in the thread that went red.  reposting here:

Dear Mr. Trump,

There are times in life when one must rise to the level of decorum requisite of a leader and appropriate to the serious nature of ones constituents plight.  Today was one of those times.  Your abject failure to be presidential or display any manner of leadership when the inhabitants of Texas looked to you today for hope and relief, while not surprising, was a disgusting demonstration of your inability to think beyond your own ocher skin.  To the people who you visited today; life is not a reality TV show.  It is their life.  Please act accordingly.  At this time, I award you NO POINTS and encourage you to return from whence you came so that the people on whom so many currently depend may do their jobs.

Sincerely,
Nogrhi

I had to check myself before I went to see if that first part was true or not...

Two things: I think he's trying to look like GWB with the bullhorn and the U.S. flag at the World Trade Center:
i.pinimg.com

Also, when I clicked on the video, the commercial was a certain Farmer's Insurance ad:
cdn-e2.streamable.com

Facepalms all around.

I'm getting that old urge to scratch my arm I thought I left behind in high school. I can't imagine how bad it must be for people who have been through worse.
