@VanceoneThank you for providing the name of the article. Too often people
refuse to provide sources for their claims.I read through the
editorial. I feel you're overstating their position quite a bit. for
reference here's where they call him complicit,"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."Claiming that Mr. Trump is among those who
downplay human involvement in climate change isn't a stretch, he's
proud of it. You may not believe in human caused climate change but the vast
majority of scientists do. There's a difference between saying
someone is responsible for something result and saying they are complicity in
allowing a problem to continue.
Bass679: Try reading the Washington Post's editorial on September 11
entitled: "Another Hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is
complicit." They blamed Trump for the hurricane's devastation.... that
hasn't even happened yet.Of course, that was back when Florence
was a Category 4 storm. Now that it is swiftly dropping in speed, will they
give Trump the credit?Of course not. But I'm sure they will
credit Obama--after all, Obama is the one who proclaimed that he was God over
the weather, saying with his (Obama's) election the oceans would recede and
the earth would heal.
@Thid BarkerOut of curiosity I went and scoured every Washington Post
article about the hurricane that I could find. Out of 4 articles I could find
from today NONE of them blamed the president. One person interviewed in one of
the articles expressed skepticism that emergency services were prepared for the
storm. Considering that the interviewed person was in Puerto Rico for the
hurricane last year that's pretty understandable, accurate or not.In no way does that constitute saying, "President Trump was responsible
for hurricane Florence".
@Thid Barker - Victor, IDSept. 12, 2018 2:05 p.m.Impartial7: The
Washington Post said this morning President Trump was responsible for hurricane
Florence."He's a disaster in himself and responsible for a
lot of other disasters, but not Florence. "Fake News".
“They haven't seen anything like what's coming at us in 25, 30
years, maybe ever. It's tremendously big and tremendously wet, tremendous
amounts of water,” What a vocabulary, the people in the way of
this hurricane should be glad that Donald even recognizes them as Americans,
unlike the poor Americans in Puerto Rico.
Impartial7: The Washington Post said this morning President Trump was
responsible for hurricane Florence.
It'll be interesting to see how the evangelicals will spin this. They
blamed the debauchery of New Orleans for the reason Katrina hit them. South
Carolina and North Carolina are in the heart of the Bible Belt. Why is Florence
