Trump trolls Puerto Rico, wants storm victims to clean up the mess by hand

If President Trump is as dumb as you're sure he is, who is writing his brilliant shtick? Could the capitalist cretin in chief have projected less empathy for victims of Hurrican Maria when he responded to calls for federal disaster relief by tossing rolls of paper towels to beleaguered Puerto Ricans? These gags don't write themselves!   Next Trump posed with military brass and told reporters the caption should be "the calm before the storm." Asked to explain, Trump replied "you'll see." The phrasing is cliche, but the mise-en-scene is must see TV.

Isaac- Where is Barack Obama? He’s certainly not there FOR the people of New Orleans!

--- One would have thought that America's first Black president would have taken the time and energy to ensure that there would be no repeat of Katrina horror for the remaining people still risking their lives living in New Orleans. If only to fully differentiate himself from the Republicans who did not build up the levees adequately under their tenure in the White House.... But Barack Obama didn't bother with any of that!

Fox can now re-add climate change denial to their Daily Spews

BP of course. "Show me the oil" "Oil? What Oil?" (though the Republican governors of the Gulf states are shitting white about what's happening, their anointed mouthpieces at Fox still insist on downplaying it). But to the Nonexistent eco-disaster of the poisoning of the ocean (and a third of the waters of the world were turned to blood and all that lived within the sea died) (Did somebody ask for a religious perspective? No? Got one anyway didn't we.) We get to add the Nonexistent Climate Change that the Fox Propagandists loudly denounced especially this winter) is going to Not Produce twice as many named tropical storms and 75% more hurricanes this year than normal. In Fox-speak, this was Not Announced this morning by NOAA, who were set up and funded through such Liberal institutions as the Military and the Shipping Industry. Oh, and for a big bonus, these non-existent hurricanes won't be in the Gulf where the Other non-existent hurricanes never were either. This of course won't affect the non-existent environmental rescue operations that aren't going on all along the Gulf coast. Did somebody say "Katrina"? 17550

Gulf Coast poor versus Wall Street RICH

Bailouts for the big boys and slander for the poor! What else is new in America? Not a word in the corporate press about the irresponsible criminal investments by the super rich of the banking and insurance companies, but look how they talk about the supposed irresponsibility of those who chose to try to ride the big storm out? And not one iota of examination of why so many people choose to not physically flee these hurricanes that come their way over and over and over each Hurricane Season? 4823

America only cares about itself

Haiti under water. Whole cities are submerged in the aftermath of hurricanes that did little damage to the US. Hundreds, if not thousands, dead. And Haiti, an occupied country, occupied thanks to the President of the United States, George W. Bush. Occupied Haiti, thanks to the Democratic Party that went along with the Republicans to occupy Haiti with foreign troops and keep it under foreign military rule. 4702
