Child President

Trump Has Found Himself Another Firetruck

For reasons that are now plainly obvious, Trump is visiting Texas today and he's addressing supporters nearly 300 miles away from the hardest hit areas.


Thank you everybody. It was a tremendous storm. The best storm. Appreciate the congrats.

Meanwhile...


Last night, Trump also credited Hurricane Harvey for increasing the "ratings" for his pardon of birther posse sheriff Joe Arpaio. Because that's what really matters.

    Even under such circumstances Trump looked like a bored, fidgety child who just wanted to go home a play with his toys.

    I couldn’t help but notice that, even ignoring the fatuous content of his remarks, Donald Trump had his advance staff set up a sound system so he could use a mic, instead of hollering into a bullhorn like a normal politician.

    A more gauche, tone-deaf, cack-fisted response to a disaster has seldom been seen.

    “What a turnout”? He’s acting like he’s there for a campaign rally. Which, I guess, is about right.
    What a POS.

      They are there for him. How could it be otherwise? I am not sure we have seen a colder, clearer indication that for trump, other people simply do not exist as separate individuals with their own needs. Other people serve only as a reflection of him, his needs, his wants.

      Even Nixon loved his Pat.

        And Nixon would never have even considered getting his kids involved in anything illegal.

    I really really really wish he’d get trapped by the rising water and have to spend several days sharing scarce peanut butter sandwiches with hoi polloi, while sleeping on a hard church pew. Plus getting wet. And having his “hair” blow away. Too much to ask, I suppose.

    • Nefercat

      Too much to ask? Not at all.

      On the other hand, I would be willing to stop right here: “I really really really wish he’d get trapped by the rising water…”
