    "Oh how "offensive"! President Trump offering concern, compassion and encouragement for victims of tornados! And signing their Bibles? Impeachable offense! Let's have the Democrats open ANOTHER ridiculous "investigation"!

    Well, if Donald Trump keeps doing the things he is doing and more comes out that indicated possible criminal behavior, I'm sure some law enforcement agency will open another investigation. There's almost too much to pursue over the next two years. Maybe there can go on as long as the Benghazi investigation into Hillary Clinton.

    By the way, can you tell us what goes on between Trump and Vladimir Putin when they get together hand have their secret meetings? What do they discuss? It must be important for Trump to keep it so secret.

    And can you explain why Trump has this fascination with communist dictators? Why does he have such admiration for men who are so ruthless and kill anyone who opposes them? And is he still in love with Kim Jong Un?

    When Trump ceded Crimea to Russia, did you agree? Yes, many people spoke Russian, but it was sovereign Ukrainian territory. Do you miss the old Soviet Union?

    Why didn't he blame the tornado on Democratic mismanagement ?

    Those blasted Dems were responsible for the fires in California because they don't rake the forests, surely there must have been something they could have done to prevent the tornados.

    He really blew it this time. It was a wonderful opportunity to blame Obama again.

    Thank goodness the people of Alabama voted for Donald Trump. Any disaster is terrible, but it helps if you Trump approves of you for supporting him in the election. He is more likely to look with favor on you. If this were California or Puerto Rico, we pretty much know what he would have done with disaster relief. He could have threatened to turn those FEMA monies into possible wall construction funds.

    So, Trump goes to Alabama and vows the full cooperation of the federal government to help the people affected by the tornado. This is good. No one who has suffered the tragedy of natural disaster should have to endure more. The American people will always be there for them. This is what we do. We help those in need. All we have to do is wait for the government to come through.

    However, there may one glitch. Since the people of Alabama didn't vote Roy Moore into the U.S. Senate after Trump vouched for him and came out in full support, Trump may have his usual reservations about disloyal people. That may be a problem, although he might condescend to throw paper towels to the crowds like he did for the people of Puerto Rico and tell them what a great job he is doing for them

    And as a sign of his deep humility, Trump was signing peoples' Bibles.

    I'm not joking. People in Alabama were having Donald. J. Trump., who represents everything Jesus warned humanity about, sign their Bibles.

    Could this chapter in American history get any weirder? Don't answer that.

    Well he did mock Alabama accents less than a week ago.

    Yo, Donald, treat them just like you treated Puerto Rico.

    Toss a few paper towels, make fun of their city, and tweet war their governor.

    The President desparately needs a positive photo-op at this juncture. His PR is really, really bad at this point in his Presidency.
