Wouldn't using water be better than using water tankers?

Maybe he doesn't realize Paris has fire hydrants, or that dumping tons of water on a building from a great height might cause a slight case of collapse, which is why urban fire fighters don't do it.

What an idiot.

No comments on the poor construction standards and how if it was a Trump building, the fire would have been put out quickly, even without following the law to install working fire sprinklers?

Which burns hotter - Notre-Dame cathedral or the stupid of Drumpf?

Notre Dame will be put out by this evening. Donnie's yap will still be running tomorrow, sadly.

Or that it's literally next to a river.

Flying. Water. Tankers.

Because dropping thousands of gallons of water in a major metropolis onto a historic structure wouldn't cause any complications
 
2019-04-15 02:39:42 PM  
I'm sure the sudden impact of several thousand pounds of water dropped from above will have a positive effect on the already significantly damaged structure.

MUST STOP PAYMENTS TO NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL. Failed in their attempts to prevent fire. SENDING RAKES AND PAPER TOWELS NOTHING ELSE. Cathedral fires GOOD and EASY TO WIN. You can do anything when you're a star. Nobody knew! Sad!

Nah, a TrumpTM cathedral would be made of pure asbestos.

We should use gigantic fans to smother the flames, then later, we send in gorillas to cure the cancer, and then winter kills the gorillas.

Winter kills gorillas, right? I don't wanna look like a moron.

He is such a stupid, stupid man.

The only people who think he is intelligent are people even dumber than he is.

I had hoped that the Wheels of Justice would grind him and his administration into a fine powder, but at this point I'd settle for a 2AM rage-induced aneurism on the john.  Just go the fark away.

im sure a city with restaurants older than our country needs urban fire fighting tips from Donald Trump
 
2019-04-15 02:43:01 PM  
The thing that gets me is, in today's world, 95% of the problems people have is caused by optics, and yet, those people never learn.

"The American people stand by the people of Paris and all of France in wake of the tragic fire at the Notre Dame Cathedral."

There. See? That would have been just fine. But he just. Can't. Help. Himself.

Same with Julian Assange. Regardless of what you think of the guy, it's never a good look to be dragged out by police officers with a crazy beard and long hair shouting things about resistance. Just walk out quietly.

This isn't about you, Donald.  Adults are talking, so apologize for interrupting and go back to your coloring.

Is there a Trump Hotel in Paris? Is it going to be the tallest building in Paris now?
 
2019-04-15 02:43:38 PM  
They have these things called fire sprinklers that Trump apparently hates because they cost money, but are far more useful in structure fires than hitting them with tanker aircraft.

Isn't Notre Dame on an island in the Seine? Close availability of water isn't the problem. I can only assume that Paris has firefighting boats too, so the ability to pump water to high pressure also isn't a problem.

The problem is, fighting fires on both old buildings and in construction areas is dangerous, and probably orders of magnitude more dangerous when they're combined and height is thrown in.

Aren't firefighting aircraft predominately used for trying to prevent the spread of wildland fires, by making it harder for that fire to spread to unburnt land? I wasn't under the impression that firefighting aircraft try to put water directly onto the burning area because the heat of a large fire would be enough to blunt the effectiveness of the small amount of water capable of being delivered that way.
 
2019-04-15 02:43:58 PM  
He's that know-it-all jagoff at the bar that has a hare brained solution to every problem. Except there are people even dumber than him willing to put his bullshiat into practice.
 
2019-04-15 02:44:10 PM  
All his tweets, like the one he sent earlier today, should end with the phrase:
'But again, what the hell do I know?'
 
2019-04-15 02:44:16 PM  
This from the man who fought putting fire sprinklers in Trump Tower (WHERE HE LIVED!!!) and then a guy died there.

Why is he so goddamn stupid?

Dumbass. When you put out a lit match, you just pick it up and shake it quickly a few times. That's obviously what they should do here.

/Look at me! I'm just as helpful as the president!

Pleasantly surprised that his comment was only stupid & ignorant, instead of stupid & inflammatory.

HideAndGoFarkYourself: Is there a Trump Hotel in Paris? Is it going to be the tallest building in Paris now?


Montparnasse Tower thankfully doesn't have five particular letters emblazoned on the side. If it did, I would not be surprised if a certain group would try to burn it down too. Even if just as a pretext to get rid of an eyesore in the middle of Paris.

/doesn't care for Paris
//still can sympathize with the Parisians for the loss of Notre Dame

And he referred to the tenant who died as a "crazy Jew." It's another in the long list of poisonous things he has said that would destroy anyone else, but his pinheaded Shiathole Cult eats it up and bays for more.

I'm reminded of Fark's Deepwater Horizon threads.

"How come they just don't put some sandbags on it?"

How long until Trump asks if their football program is OK after the fire?
