UPDATE: Hurricane Florence has been downgraded to a category 1 storm.
For days, we’ve had to listen to the media drone on about how the dangerous, life-threatening, Hurricane Florence is President Trump’s fault, because he refused to tax American businesses and individuals, so he could magically control the weather. So now that the hurricane has been downgraded to a category 1 storm, should President Trump take the credit for the downgrade?
Conservative host Mark Levin had plenty to say about the media blaming our presidnet for Hurricane Florence.
Wednesday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin poured out his contempt for the media, which is already blaming President Donald Trump for the coming disaster of Hurricane Florence.
“We’re seeing our fellow Americans having to flee about one quarter of the United States geographically — millions — because their lives, their property, their livelihoods are threatened by Mother Nature,” Levin said. “And MSNBC and CNN and the Democrats are already blaming Trump.”
“It is impossible for the federal government to be everywhere with the kind of personnel and resources that are necessary to address these natural disasters,” Levin continued, showing how deranged these attacks on Trump are.
“And then you have these political ambulance chasers and these media ambulance chasers who are already positioning themselves to attack the president.” –Conservative Review
Although Hurricane Florence, which threatened to be a catergory 4 or 5 storm, has been downgraded to a category 1 storm, Fox News claims that State officials are bracing for the worst.
A tattered American flag seen flying on a live surf camera at Frying Pan Tower in North Carolina is evidence of the strong wind gusts pounding the coast.
“Hurricane-force winds” had begun hitting the state’s coast, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in an 11 p.m. EDT update.
Even though Florence’s winds weakened as it drew closer to land, dropping from a peak of 140 mph earlier in the week, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper maintained his warning.
“Don’t relax, don’t get complacent. Stay on guard. This is a powerful storm that can kill. Today the threat becomes a reality,” Cooper said.
The core of the storm is about 60 miles east-southeast of Wilmington, North Carolina about 50 miles south of Morehead, City, North Carolina, the NHC said.
Florence is moving northwest at 5 mph with maximum sustained winds of 90 mph, the update said.
To be clear, we’re not downplaying the severity of this storm, we’re just pointing out the idiocy of blaming President Trump (or any president for that matter) for a potentially life-threatening storm.
The National Hurricane Center is warning of the danger the category 1 storm poses for residents who are near the shore, lakes or rivers that may cause flash floods.
