GW Bush  was president during hurricane Katrina

Obama would have probably handled it better

Clinton 1993-2001 America attacked on Sept 11
Bush 2001-2005 Bush took over to save the country
Obama 2005-2020 Obama seized control and allowed Katrina to destroy New Orleans, gave Iraq back to the terrorists, destroyed the infrastructure of America, refunded the CDC/NIH and then slink out of town after bungling Covid
Trump August 2020-ongoing just trying to undo Obama's mess and MAGA

I don't think we need Kanye to spell out Trump's lack of concern for this one...

If I were a religious man, I'd be telling these Southerners to change their hedonistic ways and get right with the lord, as he's punishing em for something. Fires, cicadas, tornadoes, earthquakes....sounds biblical to me.

Trump's entire presidency is his Katrina.

it's expected to become a "major hurricane" - which means at least cat 3

Ugh.  There goes my lawn again.

I'm far enough inland that I'm not really in any danger but I always get a massively flooded yard whenever a hurricane comes through.
 
2020-08-25 1:54:14 PM  
A real president would push both hurricanes to California and put out the wild fires... why can't we have a real president?

I thought Maria was Trump's Katrina.

And that Iowa derecho was Trump's Katrina.

And the California wildfires.

I get the feeling someone higher up is incentivizing people to reconsider who they're voting for come November.

Maria was Trump's Katrina. Except, in true Trumpian form, significantly worse.

Sorry for the side conversation but it is related to the website linked.  Is there anyone else unable to access any of CNN's articles lately?  A simple "ERROR" is returned on the page.

I suspect it is because of my browser security plugins, namely uBlock Origin and/or uMatrix.  Accessing the site from incognito or another browser works but the ads keep moving my browser page up and down, making it essentially unreadable.

Itll probably be a midrange 3 by landfall. They can be extremely destructive. Katrina was a low 2 high 3 at landfall in Louisiana.

This isnt a large storm, and the current track has it landing in a sparsely occupied area. Let's hope that holds.

DJT is America's Katrina.

Naw, only natural disasters that disproportionately fark up blue states or cities are 'God's judgement'. Natural disasters that disproportionately fark up Republicans are just freak incidents, so they deserve as much money as the government can print.

The whole of time and space are Trump's oyster Katrina.

Will Houston flood again? Some of those McMansion that flooded last time sat empty for years as contractors were overwhelmed trying to salvage/rebuild them. It would really suck to own a freshly rebuilt home in that area right now, IMHO.

/stay safe and dry

He could do this with one stroke of his Magic Sharpie. However, California is a blue state, so he's not going to do it.
 
2020-08-25 2:01:00 PM  
Trump cares. But not about black people.

And not about anybody who is not rich, powerful, a strong man (dictator) with more backsheesh than the Kasbah.

There can be only one. That one is Fred Trump, er, The Donald, His Only Begotten Son. What? He had other children? Did he ever acknowledge them? No? Then they were just bastards.

Yes. It always floods in Houston after a hard rain. Will it flood in the same areas or as bad as Harvey, Memorial Day, or Tax Day - no, probably not.

No. This is Trump's wall. Incompetent, I'll-conceived, non-effective, and going to kill lots of people.
