WTF MSM!? WaPo editors blame Trump for Hurricane Florence

Conservative Review

Master of all he commands …

Ridiculous … As I sit here in the western Carolinas watching for the latest forecast regarding Hurricane Florence, grown men and women at the Washington Post have been busy putting together one of the most ridiculous arguments about the weather you’ll probably ever see. You see, President Donald Trump is “complicit” in the damage that this massive hurricane will do.

Yet when it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters.

That’s some top-grade Trump Derangement Syndrome right there.

The editorial board wrote, “Scientists also warn that climate change may be slowing the wind currents that guide hurricanes, making storms more sluggish and, therefore, apt to linger longer over disaster zones.”

Here’s some real science from the Weather Channel, which reported that it’s the “Bermuda high” steering this particular storm path. The report states, “This mighty ridge of high pressure is set to debunk climatology.”

Next thing you know, the editorial board at the Post will be blaming Trump’s rhetoric for causing that high pressure system.

Speaking of blowhards … Yesterday was a day to reflect on the horrible attack against the United States on 9/11. It certainly wasn’t a day for idiots like MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough to use the backdrop of thousands of dead Americans to attack the president. Nevertheless, Joe persisted.

I wrote yesterday about how Scarborough shamelessly said Trump is worse for the country than the 9/11 terrorists. In a column for the Washington Post – sensing a pattern? – Scarborough said:

Osama bin Laden was killed by SEAL Team 6 before he accomplished that goal. Other tyrants who tried to do the same were consigned to the ash heap of history. The question for voters this fall is whether their country will move beyond this troubled chapter in history or whether they will continue supporting a politician who has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could.

Scarborough didn’t really shy away from the post later in the day, when he blamed “Trump supporters” for misunderstanding what he was trying to say.

Joe, we understood, loud and clear.
