Monday Open Thread | The Neglect of the Victims of Hurricane Michael

We told you that this Administration is incompetent.
We told you what they did to those American Citizens in Puerto Rico.
But, you thought, since they aren’t White, what does that matter to me?

Past is prologue, people.
Past is prologue.

Remember how EVERYTHING during 44’s Administration was ‘ Obama’s Katrina’, and now we have, not ONE, but TWO, Katrina -level events during Dolt45’s Administration, yet, the MSM doesn’t approach it the same way….I wonder why?

Uh huh.
Uh huh.

They can’t coverup for the incompetence, so they just won’t cover it.

No Food, No FEMA: Hurricane Michael’s Survivors Are Furious
Miles and miles of Florida are obliterated, and residents have been left to fend for themselves with little help from the government.

PANAMA CITY, Florida—Hurricane Michael’s sudden transformation into an unprecedented storm haunts everyone on the Florida Panhandle who lived through it. “It was raw power,” says Panama City resident Walter McAlster, “you felt you were in it, not outside and didn’t know if you would live through it. You knew that everything was going to change the landscape forever.”

And it did, in the space of three hours.

The destruction is everywhere, at every corner, as far as the eye can see. Mexico Beach, where the hurricane’s eyewall slammed into Florida with 140 mph winds, is flattened. Panama City, gem of the Emerald Coast, looks like a bomb has been dropped on it. It is now a desolate landscape of toppled power poles, transformers, electrical lines, severed trees, and metal roofings, twisted and tangled into a sea of debris. Nearly all homes, businesses, stores, banks, schools are severely damaged or destroyed, skeletal remains with blown out windows or crushed facades. To residents, it is unrecognizable.

There is so much rubble that the official death toll of 17 as of Sunday afternoon is expected to rise as search-and-rescue teams inspect thousands of buildings, looking for the missing. A team from the Miami Fire Department found a body in a Mexico Beach home on Friday. About 1,700 workers have checked 27,000 homes, Gov. Rick Scott said after meeting with emergency responders on Saturday evening.

The debris has rendered most roads and streets virtually impassible for evacuees and first responders. Electric poles bent at 90 degrees and power lines strewn like spaghetti cover most lanes. Nearly all transformers were destroyed. Vehicles dodge ruined trees, split like toothpicks or uprooted by the power of the storm.

………………

Since the storm, there’s been no electricity and no water in Panama City. Emergency disaster relief was yet to be seen in strength as of Saturday morning and residents were growing more frustrated and desperate.

And, isn’t this interesting? The difference in description?

  3. But Trump said Saudi Arabia denied it strongly. Blamed it on rogue killers. He’s a compulsive lying thug.

    About the Florida panhandle…

    Panama City and Mexico Beach are located in Bay County which, in 2016, went 71.2% for Trump.

    Marianna (remember the Dozier School for Boys?) is located in Jackson County which went 67.8% for Trump in 2016.

    Appalachicola is located in Franklin County which went 68.6% for Trump in 2106.

    In fact, the only blue county in the panhandle area is Leon County which is where Tallahassee is located (two big universities there).

    So let’s see how well Donald Trump takes care of his most enthusiastic supporters.

    • Liza says:

      Gadsen County, adjacent to Leon County, also went blue in 2016.

      But outside of the area influenced by the two universities and perhaps the state capital, the Florida panhandle is more like Alabama and Mississippi and rural Georgia than the rest of Florida.

    This is funny. In my closet, there are NO WIRE HANGERS. I’m with Joan Crawford on that one.

      CBS gave this orange piece of shit a sit down interview. He’s done his damage on Fox, so now the rest of his supporters and so-called MSM can continue mainstreaming this shithead into our culture.

      Good lord, Leslie Stahl, step away from the bleaching/coloring.

      This right here:

      Brian Kemp wouldn’t be trying to stop you from voting if he didn’t think your vote mattered

      And this goes for the rest of the GOP fuckers who gerrymander and try to suppress our votes

  10. Ametia says:

    THIS: (MSM) They can’t coverup for the incompetence, so they just won’t cover it.

    • Ametia says:

      So what is this bitches name?

      SHE, THE WOMAN? WTF IS HER NAME. THEY NAMED THE MAN.

      Everyone knows his name. Why is her name kept a secret?

      JUST ASKING

      • Liza says:

        We’re probably going to hear her name before too long.

        But I will say this about her. We don’t see the black man in the video but I can assure you that the little lady asshole was not afraid of him. I can assure you that he looked like a person who would be living in a downtown loft. Because she would have been scared shitless of anyone who looked like a street thug and she WOULD NOT have confronted them.

        This was pure harassment that she engaged in to entertain herself.

        And I feel sorry for that little dog who has to live with her.
