Now that's "burning at a level that you rarely see a fire burn."

How many draft statements that mentioned "lazy orange meatbags" or "f'ing moron Yanks" were deleted before they settled on this all-too-polite one?

And is there a drafts directory we could see, pretty pls?

Is it too much to ask that our President go 48 hours without embarrassing the United States of America.

For Americans in this thread, French Civil Security had to tweet in English to explain to Trump how firefighting works.  Christ, what a moron.

For MAGA-Americans in this thread, your leader is such a farking idiot that his suggestion would have destroyed the building instantly.  You may assume that his suggestions for things like health care, immigration, taxation, trade, and civil rights would have much the same effects.

Boy, if I were Trump and the Republicans, I would rename that place the Freedom Cathedral, just to show those Frenchies we mean business.  Or maybe we could call it Trump Cathedral with a big flashing sign, because that would be real class.

Do they even play golf?  Those Frenchies, I mean.

I have never been more embarrassed to be an American.

It's almost like France has been around for a long time, maybe even longer than US America, and in that time they have learned to fight fires in urban structures.
 
2019-04-16 12:43:58 AM  
farking libs. So they send firemen, and the place burns down. Meanwhile, Trump is trying to help, and he did not want to embarrass them by stating that they should have actually sent watermen. So he subtly used "water bombing aircraft" in place of watermen. They should have known what he meant, but that's just Frenchmen being Frenchmen.

ok, under any under circumstances i would funny that, and i know that the vast majority of the irreplaceable shiat was moved out, and the lost glass can be rebuilt (god knows we've got enough photo references of the Rose Windows), but i've been to Notre Dame, i've seen it with my own eyes when i lived in France as a child, and as happy as i was to start my new job today, hearing that the heart of Paris was burning is just too godsdamned sad.

but if that was your shoop, that was farking brilliant. kudos to you sir or madam, and please accept this in lieu of the funny i can't give you on principle.

why the hell did they stuff the place with flammable rocks

they bought their tickets
they knew what they were getting into

Even when the Bushies were president, I didn't automatically despise and distrust everything that came out of the white house.  I mean they were capable of NOT being a constant embarrassment each and every moment of each and every day.  plus - bonus round: far as i know, none of the Bush presidents every used the word 'bigly' in official government communications.

every day I find myself asking the same question - WHY are the Republicans so afraid of Trump?  the man is a gotdamn f*cking idiot.  there is absolutely zero reason to fear him.  he's probably busy licking the windows in the Oval Office as we speak.

40-50 tons of water dropped on a 800+ year old wooden structure from what, 1000'? above.

How goddamn stupid do you have to be to think that is a good idea? Well, smart enough to be elected president of the United States, evidently.

At least he didn't suggest that if the floors were raked more often the fire would have been smaller and easier to put out.
 
2019-04-16 12:48:30 AM  
Did the building have a robust and reliable sprinkler system?

If not why?

Preserving history is the excuse lots of people who own old buildings give, but now Notre Dame is gone.

I guarantee someone in the trump camp has already made phone calls asking about how much the land is worth.

I like how the French tweet gets to the point faster about why they can't use planes, and they have really have to explain in more detail in English for Trump.

Why can't he know what to say?

There's not enough Trump and Twitter on Fark already, so now we have to make things that aren't even about him about him?

so putting aside for a moment the VERY strange situation of a group of amoral bottom feeders being inexplicably terrified of a senile old moron like Trump....there's the problem of how Donald's statements look to the rest of the world.  if nobody fears or respects you, they aren't going to take you seriously.  Trump has spewed such a constant stream of bullshiat, lies and threats that nobody takes him even remotely seriously.  Trump can't do his JOB if other world leaders feel they can just rope-a-dope him at will....

*shrug*

I'd like to point out to the freedom fry loving republicans in the audience, that you surrendered before France.

Its not gone, the roof, the spire, and some of windows got the most damage. The flying buttresses, and the ceiling is intact. They will be able to rebuild. This could have been a lot worse.

The fire started above them. And, when the roof gave way, so did the sprinklers?

aaand I'm not sure why you would want to funny it, anyways. Unless you were trying to embarrass me, which is fine, I guess. I have noticed here on FARK when Trump supporters try to get their point across, that some of the meaner FARKers will funny their posts in order to invalidate their point, as if to say, "ha ha, fool. Go back to school." But really, who cares. It's like digital sticks and stones coming from those who sit naked in their pleather chairs, nude, while eating artichoke toast. Whatevs.
