Gas shortages & gas increases are very positive.
Chemicals plant fires are very positive.
Loss of local jobs is very positive.
+100 billion going to a flood plain is very positive.
It's all very positive!
Trump's got it!

So Trump should have anticipated the hurricane and within his time in office have relocated the people and oil industry away from Houston?

I'm sure that would have been no problem, given all the support he has in the press and Congress.

Trump is slowly redpilling the entire world. The MSM is proving itself to be the disaster fake news it is. The establishment from both the D's and R's are running scared. This is by far the most exciting time I can remember in politics (besides the night Hillary lost of course).

Success or failure of the response will not be known for weeks, more likely many months and probably years.

Everyone has more or less already forgotten the flood victims from earlier this year (except for those affected) and how well that response is or isn't going and with two good months left in hurricane season Texas is quite likely to be forgotten or mentioned for comparison and afterthought, should a Cat 3 or larger hurricane due similar damage in another part of the country.

Then again no agreement has yet been reached on funding for anything including the "wall" so don't break about the party hats, noise makers and balloons just yet .

"The floodwaters hadn't even crested in Houston when experts started calling Hurricane Harvey the costliest natural disaster in U.S. history. One estimate put the damage at $190 billion, or more than the costs of Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy, combined".

"That money will have to come from somewhere, which means Congress will need to approve it when it reconvenes next week. In recent years, emergency aid packages have tended to become politicized events. Here's what's expected this time around".

The Russia thing has died off. So has the imaginary Nazi threat, even Diane Feinstein has given up the Democrat propaganda cause because of its utter failure.

For me, as long as Democrats keep losing elections, I don't care what the leftist propaganda machine tries to push. Keep dragging Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham out. Maybe some John Oliver. It's worked so well right, eh Democrats?

Once the leftist danger has lost enough elections, we can concentrate on establishment GOP politicians. The Democrats are just making themselves the easier target at the moment.

These types of tragedies have very little to do with US Gov, and a lot to do with local government since they are the ones who respond first. Neither Bush nor Obama nor Trump have to be blamed/praised - it is New Orleans local government which failed, and Houston municipality which did not.

lol--by "died off", you mean the special counsel has teamed up with the NY DA to bring state charges against Paul Manafort so he can't be pardoned, thereby exerting more pressure on him to turn on his old boss. Not to mention the draft letter that the counsel now has as well.

I think this is at least the 4th time McGee or Bass or whichever Trumpkin posts here has claimed the investigation is dead or has died off. Funny how its still going strong.

Trump's handling of Harvey generally seen as positive to very positive, what's the lamestream media going to focus on now instead?


Are you seriously trying to suggest that Trump hasn't been a crap president? That he hasn't made bad policies and appointments? Really?

Look, Hillary sucked and the conservative left sucks, but anyone who thinks Trump is a great president is just plain nuts. Don't tell me you actually admire Trump. He's a con artist who's entire presidency is about embezzling the taxpayers.

Two comments on this.

1) Let's see how Obama's Golf playing time while in office ultimately stacks up against Trump's.

2) The fact that Obama didn't shamelessly treat natural disasters as photo ops to the extent that Trump does is a sign of something called honesty and integrity that most fringe right wingers know little about. I would suggest you look in to it, instead of falling back on Tea Party Journal, Brietbart, or Right wing Fantasyland Times, or whatever other source of TPB internet "News" you're going to site next.

Need I remind you of who the guy really is.

Trump often stole credit for other peoples' charity.

http://nationalpost.com/news/world/trump-often-stole-credit-for-other-peoples-charity-when-he-actually-donated-it-was-to-benefit-himself

In the fall of 1996, a charity called the Association to Benefit Children held a ribbon-cutting in Manhattan for a new nursery school serving children with AIDS. The bold-faced names took seats up front.

There was then-Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani (R) and former Mayor David Dinkins (D). TV stars Frank and Kathie Lee Gifford, who were major donors. And there was a seat saved for Steven Fisher, a developer who had given generously to build the nursery.

Then, all of a sudden, there was Donald Trump.

“Nobody knew he was coming,” said Abigail Disney, another donor sitting on the dais. “There’s this kind of ruckus at the door, and I don’t know what was going on, and in comes Donald Trump. [He] just gets up on the podium and sits down.”

Trump was not a major donor. He was not a donor, period. He’d never given a dollar to the nursery or the Association to Benefit Children, according to Gretchen Buchenholz, the charity’s executive director then and now.

But now he was sitting in Fisher’s seat, next to Giuliani.

“Frank Gifford turned to me and said, ‘Why is he here?’ ” Buchenholz recalled recently. By then, the ceremony had begun. There was nothing to do.

“Just sing past it,” she recalled Gifford telling her.

So they warbled into the first song on the program, “This Little Light of Mine,” alongside Trump and a chorus of children – with a photographer snapping photos, and Trump looking for all the world like an honored donor to the cause.

Afterward, Disney and Buchenholz recalled, Trump left without offering an explanation. Or a donation. Fisher was stuck in the audience. The charity spent months trying to repair its relationship with him.

“I mean, what’s wrong with you, man?” Disney recalled thinking of Trump, when it was over.

For as long as he has been rich and famous, Donald Trump has also wanted people to believe he is generous. He spent years constructing an image as a philanthropist by appearing at charity events and by making very public — even nationally televised — promises to give his own money away.

It was, in large part, a facade. A months-long investigation by The Washington Post has not been able to verify many of Trump’s boasts about his philanthropy.



I know, I know. If it's fact based it's fake news. All you have to do is say it's a lie and run back to your fantasy land before your soul realizes what's going on.

So the bitch now is the media didn't diss trump on handling the hurricane? It's bad when the press picks on trump, it's bad when the press doesn't pick on trump. A lot of trumpbots need an actual hobby other than obsessing about how trump is being slighted either way.

More propoganda bullshit. George W. Bush was the president who just flew over hurricane Katrina victims in 2005 so that his vacation would not be interrupted.

In 2016 Obama did go to Louisiana because of the flooding. He also allocated resources to fix the problem, unlike Bush in 2005.

The photo op you show doesn't demonstrate real help. No one needs Trump's fat ass carrying three empty buckets. They need massive financial and logistical aid from transportation to food to medical care for chronic conditions like dialysis.

It's amazing what shameless propaganda TPB writes.

Not sure "hates" is the right word. They see through his BS and understand he is a 5 year old in a 60 year old's body that is only in office to steal as much money as possible before he resigns.

And they voted with that in mind.

Yep--clearly died off.

"Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III has alerted the White House that his team will probably seek to interview six top current and former advisers to President Trump who were witnesses to several episodes relevant to the investigation of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election, according to people familiar with the request.

Mueller’s interest in the aides, including trusted adviser Hope Hicks, former press secretary Sean Spicer and former chief of staff Reince Priebus, reflects how the probe that has dogged Trump’s presidency is starting to penetrate a closer circle of aides around the president."

I read somewhere that the Sun, our star Sol, has been acting erratically and has some very unusually large sun spots and solar flare activity. Obviously this is because of climate change and somehow Trump is involved, that white devil! I am sure some will conclude that Sol has decided to mock SJWs by putting on its version of black face, to gloat over its racial oppression...
