Trump Offers Flag-Waving Optimism in Visit to Harvey's Path

Source: AP

"We are going to get you back and operating immediately," Trump told an impromptu crowd
that gathered outside a Corpus Christi fire station about 30 miles from where the storm made
landfall Friday.

"What a crowd, what a turnout," Trump declared before waving a Texas flag from atop a step ladder
positioned between two fire trucks. "This is historic. It's epic what happened, but you know what, it
happened in Texas, and Texas can handle anything."

Trump spoke optimistically about the pace of the recovery, and predicted his response would be a textbook case for future presidents.

"We want to do it better than ever before," he said. "We want to be looked at in five years, in 10 years from now as, 'This is the way to do it.'"

The man is certifiable. 1/2 a million cars are DOA because of the flooding, God only knows
how many homes will have to be torn down because of black mold and structural
problems, and I doubt many businesses will be ready to open their doors and get back
to work.

A must see!

I will get all of Putin’s team to buy in on this."

This is what a hero looks like

No, the shark picture isnt real: A running list of Harveys viral hoaxes

Source: Washington post

The shark picture is fake

Any time you see a picture of a shark swimming down a street — or in a subway station, or what have you — after a major flooding event, be suspicious. Fake shark pictures, often the work of photo editing, are the most inevitable visual viral hoax in a disaster like this, to the point that it’s almost become a meme.

The shark is not swimming down the street. It was not swimming down the (same) street during Hurricane Matthew. It wasn’t swimming in the aftermath of Sandy. And most of the other pictures of sharks swimming where people were are fake too.

Obama is not serving food to evacuees in Texas right now

A viral, now-deleted tweet claimed to show former president Barack Obama serving hot meals to those evacuated from the floods in Texas.

“Something you’ll never see Trump do: Obama is in Texas serving meals!,” the tweet read. While the photo is real, the context is fake – it’s not a recent photo of Obama, and it has nothing to do with the former president’s response to Harvey.

BTW Did Fox just call Trump Tómalo ? aka tomato and donald

? Didn't Arapio back Trump's Birther Crap?

thanx for any links or stories.

He is nutz

I couldn't watch the whole thing.

But 3 things I picked up on.

The President' desk is in the oval office.

He totally dissed all the American war deaths who aren't in Arlington Cemetery ...
such as the one in Normandy France where we landed @on D-Day 1944.


Or a cemetery in Meadville, PA where a friend's brother if buried (Vietnam).



He always makes everything about himself.

TRUMP SAYS THATS TOO BAD AFTER CRASH OF USS JOHN MCCAIN

Source: Newsweek

President Donald Trump’s initial reaction to the crash of the USS John McCain with a merchant ship east of Singapore that left five sailors injured and ten missing was: “That’s too bad.”

Trump responded to the crash when reporters shouted questions at him late Sunday when he arrived on the South Lawn of the White House on the presidential helicopter Marine One. The president has returned to Washington D.C. after a 17-day vacation spent mostly at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

My random totally mindless wild guess is the Trump is gonna resign and ....

.... that President Pence will pardon him. I think his tweets, Trump's
reaction to Charlottesville, and Trump trying to whip up a war w/N Korea
are all a function of Trump feeling the walls closing in on him.

Could the Camp David meeting this weekend w/Pence and others be setting
the stage for Trump's exit?
