In other news, the total economic loss caused by Hurricane Harvey may be as high as $90 billion according to new estimates. That feels too low.

Meanwhile, Politico reports that Trump didn't actually meet a single victim in Texas yesterday. I think we knew that before he even traveled there.

Finally, the United Nations’ human rights chief says Trump's anti-media rhetoric could be a incitement of violence.

“It’s really quite amazing when you think that freedom of the press, not only sort of a cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution but very much something that the United States defended over the years is now itself under attack from the President,” the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights said.

“It’s sort of a stunning turnaround. And ultimately the sequence is a dangerous one,” he told a news conference in Geneva.

Now, here's Alex Jones on testicles.

    Meanwhile, Politico reports that Trump didn’t actually meet a single victim in Texas yesterday.

    It was a presidential trip to a deluged state where the president didn’t meet a single storm victim, see an inch of rain or get near a flooded street.

    But the daylong visit, during which President Donald Trump spent far more time in the air than on the ground, gave the optics-obsessed president some of the visuals he wanted

    Hey, Media. Y’know just because someone poses for a picture doesn’t mean you have to take it or print it.

    Stop feeding the troll.

      Personally, I’d have loved to see the news stories of Trump’s visit to Texas with pictures of the storm victims, of the rain, of a flooded street with Trump nowhere in evidence. And captions pointing that out.

    That political cartoon is the one and only thing Chris Christie has ever been right about.

    What is it you’re always saying JM?

    The coastal bailout of 2050 will be epic.

    ~ YEAH!!…

    Trump also didn’t mention a police officer who died while looking for people who needed to be rescued or meet with that officer’s family. Yet the police in this country voted for this self centered boob. Anyone who thinks Trump genuinely cares about the police (or any other group for that matter) IS A GOD DAMNED IDIOT!!!

    The only free speech Donald Trump will ever support is his freedom to lie his ass off.
