‘Who does that sh*t?’: Twitter can’t believe Trump told a shelter full of Harvey victims to ‘Have a good time’

Published

on

On Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump made his second trip to Houston, TX in a week, perhaps hoping for a “do over” on his first visit, at which his performance was so desultory and lackluster that it was entirely overshadowed by his wife’s choice of shoes for the outing.

On his second visit, Trump touched actual Texas children, handed out styrofoam containers of food — but not without getting in a dig at the media — and did his best to play the role of a strong and competent leader who wouldn’t rack up a perfect score on the “Are You a Sociopath?” test.

And it would have worked, too, if he hadn’t stopped on the way out the door to tell everyone huddled in the shelter with the few meager belongings they have that aren’t soaked in mud, poop and toxic chemicals to “Have a good time.”

Business Insider pointed out that at current count 43 people have died from causes related to Hurricane Harvey and dozens more injured. A number of highly toxic industrial cleanup sites were inundated in the storm and cataclysmic flooding but the EPA currently admits that is has no idea how that may affect the environment or the people and wildlife in the region.

Cleaning up after Harvey will take billions of dollars and years to accomplish. Losses to local residents and businesses have been catastrophic, but the president wants everyone to “have a good time.”

Twitter was not amused.

Trump abusing the intelligence community in an attempt to keep them quiet about Russia election hacks: Conservative

The New York Times Magazine piece outlining President Donald Trump's battles with the U.S. intelligence community revealed that Russia is continuing to wage its own cyberwar against the world. According to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, the devastating report explained the extent to which the president is ignoring the threats to the 2020 election.

“The options faced by the intelligence community during Trump’s presidency have been stark: avoid infuriating the president but compromise the agencies’ ostensible independence, or assert that independence and find yourself replaced with a more sycophantic alternative," wrote Robert Draper in his lengthy investigation into Trump's efforts to politicize international intelligence. According to Boot, the most shocking part of the investigation was that the experts in the intelligence community have been banned from speaking honestly about the Russian attacks.

‘Incompetent moron’ Chuck Todd ripped for letting Trump official claim Democrats want more COVID-19 deaths

Published

"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd is under fire -- once again -- after letting Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro claim on NBC that Democrats want more Americans to die during the coronavirus pandemic to boost their chances at the polls in November.

Instead of pushing back the NBC host known for his lack of follow-up questions let the comment slide by responding, "I take your point."

Todd's failure to call out the Trump aide for what one Twitter commenter called a "disgusting" comment led to an avalanche of criticism for the MBC political director who recently saw his weekday show cut back to make room for more commentary by colleague Nicolle Wallace.

Speaking with Christians in Sioux Falls, Iowa, Dias found Trump support remaining strong despite his ongoing travails unsuccessfully battling the coronavirus pandemic and the collapsing economy that shows little signs of rebounding.
