  • Why hasn't Trump ordered at least one of our two US Navy hospital ships, the Mercy and the Comfort to the Bahamas. They were built to conduct humanitarian and disaster relief missions around the world, which they've done before in the past.
    On second thought Never mind, I almost forgot….he's a complete sociopath, and he doesn't care.

  • Democrats have shown themselves to be guttersnipes who slam Trump 24 7 instead of doing something constructive like meeting with Trump and going on national TV to offer their solutions for the hurricane, both before and after, so as to show they at least tried. But that's not gonna happen though as Dems are political party first, America second hacks, who politicize anything and everything in their faux outrage as they fingerpoint and virtue signal.

  • Focused on beating these 10 GOP Senators in 2020:
    Mitch McConnell (KY)
    Susan Collins (ME)
    John Cornyn (TX)
    Joni Ernst (IA)
    Cory Gardner (CO)
    Lindsey Graham (SC)
    Cindy Hyde-Smith (MS)
    Martha McSally (AZ)
    David Perdue (GA)
    Thom Tillis (NC)

  • When told about the devastation in the Bahamas, t'rump asked, "they're black and they can't vote…so why are you bothering me with this?"

  • I understand not counting the bodies, but I hope they are being retrieved, labeled, and stored someplace where they will not become the source of sickness for an already traumatized population.

  • America America

    Weatherman trump is now trying to get the people in Alabama who corrected what trump did, giving false information he knew it was wrong.
    So trump gets to dictate who can correct his.errors,.now people at the weather community can't correct misinformation that the impostor occupying the oval office gives.

    Any one who loses their jobs, sue the trump administration, sue acting Secretary commerce sue him personally, Alabama tv personal if you lose your jobs sue your station, personally sue commerce acting Secretary personally sue d j trump,and trump administration.

    If trump is allowed do give false information, and others lose their livelihood, trump is well on his way to being a dictator.
    The military
    The supreme court
    Senate
    Cabinet members
    Trump has placed weak people in place he pretty much does what ever he decides.

    Trump puts his corrupt hands on every area of our society, nothing is off limits to him, this is where our democracy is heading.
    This is so crazy

  • "The island is surrounded by water". What an inane comment – the very definition of an island is land surrounded by water.
    I just waited for him to add "very WET water", Trump-style.

  • Perhaps a few naval ships and or cruise liners can pull off the coast of the Bahamas to temporarily assist these people who are currently stranded without adequate shelter, food, water and basic medical needs?
