As we speak,
Hurricane Tropical Storm Florence is still pounding the Carolinas and threatening to push weathermen off their feet. Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected by the storm. Meanwhile, CNN already has someone to blame for the whole thing. I’ll clue you in on who it is. He’s orange, has tiny hands, and lives on Pennsylvania Avenue.
On CNN’s New Day, John Avlon cited two Harvard scientists who argued that President Trump’s environmental policies will cause 80,000 unnecessary deaths every decade.
Avlon hosted a “reality check” addressing the claims of a Washington Post article arguing that President Trump is “complicit” in the damage that will be caused by Hurricane Florence. Avlon opened the “reality check” by saying “while President Trump has been talking up our preparedness, his policies have been tearing down our defenses to climate change, which is often to blame for extreme weather.” He went on to slam the Trump administration for rolling back regulations of methane in addition to its decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord, dismantling the Clean Power Plan, and expanding offshore drilling.
Yep, the Donald is the culprit. If only he had flipped off the oil lobby and made it illegal for hurricanes to hurricane, Florence would have never left Africa.
CNN has cracked the code. Trump could never get away with sending gays, commies, and ethnic minorities to a new Auschwitz in Indiana. Instead he’s manipulating the weather to make his mass-murdering ambitions a reality. You know, because he’s a bad, evil no-good man who won’t make climate change illegal.
CNN doesn’t seem to realize hurricanes have always been a thing, and probably always will be. Though, they don’t care. Their only goal here is to use Florence to score political points against the Orange Man. Pathetic.
