Single hurricane thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Trashing Kardashians is pretty low hanging fruit so I rarely do it, and I appreciate Kim's sporadic work on pardons and prison reform, but this is truly disgusting:

She (and all her types) are idiots. They always have been and always will be. Like a broken gold clock, they do accidentally do good things, but that doesn't change who or what they are.

No argument here, but I haven't often (if at all) noticed her crossing over from stupid and annoying into cruel. Maybe I would have if I'd ever paid more attention.

Well, the timing of that pic wasn't good, but it wasn't like she was there now, cavorting around while the residents are waiting to lose their homes. Her visit was last month.

Very true, but she chose to post the pics on 8/30 as then Cat 2-3 Dorian was bearing down on the Bahamas, and they're still up on her Instagram account despite the 48 hours of catastrophe there.

Whoa, SC landfall is back on the table, Cat 2:

Even before this latest shift the SC Gov said that if you flooded in the last 4 years, GO now!

Tropical Storm Dorian

Still early to say for the mainland, but the Ensemble model shows Cat 2 Dorian trouncing PR, smacking O Really's Naples, billy.pilgrim's Pensacola, and eventually curling east to my Hooterville, the perfect BRD storm.

San Juan Mayor responds to Trump’s false Puerto Rico claim: ‘Get out of the way’

I don't know who is lying about the money, but I can guess.
Might set a record for unneeded preparations, but better safe than sorry. Saw a FL couple that had evacuated 3 or 4 times. FL > GA > Myrtle Beach, SC, then not sure where in NC they were being interviewed.

You give him too much credit by assuming that he would get the nation correct.

We're now in Day 5 or 6 of the Alabama fiasco. The pansy is pointing to maps that predate his stupid tweet by several days, and is getting sycophants like Hannity to defend him when "Oops" would have sufficed. This is truly pitiful.

You spelled "Winnipeg" correctly, not a very good impression of him. ;)
Try: Trump probably warns of landfall in Winnie the Pooh.
