    Default Are there any Trump supporters here?

    If so, could they explain why he went to a Trump rally while one of the worst hurricanes in history was bearing down on Florida.
    Could they explain why, as hundreds of thousands of Americans were waking up to complete devastation, he was meeting with a ranting rap star in the oval office.

    He could have at least pretended to be concerned.

    I'm shocked, I mean where's he going to play golf now?
    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    Supporter? Not really. But this kind of complaint is stupid, and is where I often disagree with his detractors.

    Why? The criticism seems appropriate, and spot on.

    Agreed. You would expect the nation's chief executive to be focused on the business of the nation in a time of crisis.

    EVERY president we have had took time away from "rallies" and other fru fru events to focus on the real work at hand. You did not see George W jetting off to his ranch in texas when Katrina hit, you did not see Obama putting his feet up on the desk when Sandy was devastating NJ, why should the Donald get a pass?

    Why?

    Because he is their Messiah, delivered by the Maw of Satan, to drown the US Constitution in a bath tub, that's why!

    Right. Because the only thing going on in the 57 US States is the hurricane in Florida. If only there was someone, or even an entire Emergency Management Agency at the Federal level (we could call it FEMA for short) that could handle these things if the President was busy.

    As as we know, once away from the Oval Office the President is pretty much incommunicado from the rest of the world. At best we can leave a voicemail and hope he calls back.

    What should he have done?

    Re Rap star issue v hurricane, he certainly does have appalling PR.
    Did he make any announcement etc re hurricane e.g. getting help there etc?

    You wouldn't want a President to pretend anything, surely?

    Leaving Mr Trump aside.

    I understand that the destruction due to the hurricane is horrendous.

    I have not heard of number of deaths, but it sadly probably be in the hundreds.

    While the hurricane is bad enough, the weeks/months of aftermath is really horrible.
    Electricity, water, food etc.

    Electricity I can basically do with out. Food and water are another subject altogether.

    You don't appreciate the water that instantly flows out of your tap until the service is no longer there.
    When you have to lug it you appreciate every drop.
    Drinking, bathing, flushing toilets.

    By the time the liberal media is done, the death toll will be somewhere around 75,000. The usual crowd will accept it because that’s they way we count hurricanes deaths since January 2017.

    Yes, and I'm sure if Obama had done the same thing you would have given him the same "benefit of a doubt" pass.

    Let's work on priorities here - is the hurricane recovery more or less important that a visit from Kayne to the Oval Office?

    Be real. If Obama had had a visit from Beyonce during some crisis, he'd be hung by his thumbs.

    considering the fit they had when he wore a tan suit (which looked great on him, btw). I think they would have stormed the white house and had a good old fashioned lynching.

    Donald gets a pass because he’s a rich entitled baby king.

    Donald gets a pass because he's a white supremacist authoritarian totalitarian dictator wannabe, sent by Almighty God to deliver the US from it's natural enemies, the Liberals who founded this country.

    I fully expect to be murdered and dismembered and smuggled out of the country by Brian's Hero for the crime of telling it like it is.

    Remember me.

    Good For You, Brian.

    There are Trump supporters here, and tens of millions more throughout the US. It's a beautiful thing.

    A visit by Kayne is always a waste of time. Beyoncé slightly better, but would also be wrong.

    This is still a stupid complaint.

    You would think that a country with the largest armed force in the world would be AAA at disaster response and getting relief supplies on site in an organised and speedy fashion. However Katrina and Haiti have shown this not to be the case.

    Trump has millions of fans in Europe too, all of them yearning to breathe free. Help is on the way.

    I wonder why a European would get excited about America First and MAGA.

    Oh yeah, his European fans are into the anti-Muslim and racist stuff. Silly me.

    Because we know that the only reason that any European could support Trump is that they are racist! That's it! That's all it could be! So we have "good" Europeans and "bad" Europeans! A binary world! Us and them!

    Genius!
