From Birtherism to Deatherism, Trump Has All Conspiracy Theories Covered

Seething Rage.

Yesterday, we might have mentioned Comrade Trumps twin tweets denying that Hurricane Maria killed nearly 3,000 Puerto Ricans last year…

…and it seems that others noticed it, too/also:

…and compare and contrast that with Fox News’ Lou Dobbs, Hair Füror’s fellow birther enthusiast (who “left” CNN when he wouldn’t quit promoting his theory):

Anyway, you’ll never guess what happened next! Some Republicans are pushing back against Comrade Stupid!:

Florida lawmakers are publicly disagreeing with President Trump’s claim that the death toll in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria is not accurate.

Why it matters: With just 2 months before the election — and with an estimated 50,000–75,000 Puerto Ricans who may have permanently settled in Florida since the hurricane — they know they can’t stay silent on an issue that affects a significant portion of Florida’s electorate.

The big picture: Republicans Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis have never openly disagreed with Trump before. In fact, they’ve benefitted from his endorsements, and DeSantis even released an entire ad mirroring himself after Trump.

OK, so it’s self-serving, but it’s a start. Maybe Republiclans (see what I did there?) don’t believe in reality anymore, except when they have to? We note that Republicans have a number of seats in North Carolina that are up for grabs.

    Yeah, the NC electoral map is still the hopelessly gerrymandered one drawn up by the Republiklansmen so don’t expect much change unless Trump and FEMA really screw up the post-Florence relief and recovery.

      Jim – and you can bank on it. They will screw up the recovery where’ere it is needed.

        But it is continental US so there will be support from the redneck navy (that right?) and people trucking in their own distillers and generators and Budweiser bringing water and Dominos coming in to fill in the potholes, so it will have support outside of FEMA that was not available in PR. I am not hoping for destruction, but I do hope that our benighted media steps up and points out if, indeed, major assistance comes from civilians rather than FEMA.
        (ps – didn’t NO go through a similar counting process, where they claimed 100 dead or something and then updated the count when e waters went down? Sorry, I’m going to run in computer mode for a while, it’s too big of a mess to wrap my heart around.)

    Chuck Todd was absolutely ecstatic yesterday, claiming “…Trump’s comment may have been bad for Trump, but it was good for Rick Scott…” Chuckles is REALLY in the bag for batboy!

    when ‘he’ left that ‘isolated island’ thurston and lovey were still alive (though gilligan was unaccounted for, but probably just visiting dobie on the other side of the island) and, since they were the ones with the money they mattered most, so how could the death toll possibly go up? after all, as he left he gave instructions for no one else to die because it might make him look bad….and he was out of paper towels.
