Thats gotta be shooped.
What fool would do such a re *ahem* stupid thing?

I vaguely recall US disaster aid shipped to some country where they relabeled everything to make  it look like the failing repressive government was helping. A shiathole country if you will.

As we sink further and further into 3rd world status and banana republicanism it wouldn't surprise me if Fort Myers got boxes of "Cincinnati Bengals 2022 Super Bowl Champions" T-shirts and hats sometime soon.

I've seen lots of candidates hand out branded water bottles. The most likely scenario is they already had them and now they are repurposing then from being handed out at street fairs to "hurricaine relief".

So, how do you feel about plastic waste?

There could be an upside. Maybe they can use the plastic to rebuild some houses.

I will rest easy tonight knowing that truckers all over Florida are pissing into her likeness and tossing her into a ditch.

That really does go beyond just being an asshole.

Why in the world didn't someone step in and say, "Uh, that is a career ending level mistake right there."?

But then again...  Republicans.  Am I right?

Not sure how she's gonna profit by the water in the traditional sense. But if your name is Carolina Amnesty you got bigger problems.

Sure, you may view this as shameless hucksterism, but isn't that what you want in your career politician? Someone who can look at a scene of complete devastation, at entire counties full of suffering and uncertainty, and say "How can I get this to work to my advantage?" Someone who will twist even the most trivial event into an opportunity? Someone almost drooling at the prospect of winning an election and finally making some real money? Someone who won't do a damned thing without the prior assurance that it will be front page above the fold and blabbed about incessantly on the evening news?

It may be distasteful and unbecoming to you, but you have some measure of pride, and that's not what we're dealing with here.

I'm more concerned with the fact there is all that water and only a single roll of TP

Well remember in the early days of the pandemic TFG held up checks getting released so he could get his signature and a letter from him in there.

Why would giving people water who need it be a career ending mistake?  If I am thirsty I would be thanking the lady whose picture is on the bottle for providing me some water.  She probably had them already made for campaign event and decided to donate some surplus.

I mean, to be fair, these might be things they had made for campaign events and they shifted them over to donations to help. I can see that.... but she's a republican so it's probably safe to assume the worst.

BS. They donate the branded water to get an ROI. If they weren't looking for publicity, they'd reach into their own pockets and donate anonymously and not stand for handshake photos in the process. Yeah, yeah...you'll say they all do it...but they don't. A lot of times we find out by accident that some donated without an announcement or expecting any return. Hell, most people didn't know Jimmy Carter was helping build houses until he had a health issue while working on one.

I suspect named GOTO labels are FORTRAN. But it's been awhile.

Christ!  30 years ago I could write in Basic, Fortran77, and Pascal.  Today, I'd be lucky to write a random number generator.
