Hey guys, remember that time when Prznint Stupid robbed FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund to pay for a half-assed unemployment benefit almost nobody can use?
Trump Looted $44 Billion From FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund in the Middle of a Record-Setting Hurricane Season
Laura, the strongest August hurricane observed in the Gulf of Mexico since Hurricane Katrina, is steamrolling toward Mississippi, Louisiana, and Texasand expected to make landfall by Thursday morning. The National Hurricane Center has warned the storm could bring with it an “unsurvivable” surge — waves up to 20 feet high that may cause “catastrophic” damage up to 30 miles inland — along with hurricane-force winds, heavy rain and widespread flash flooding.
If those predictions bear out, Laura could be one of the most destructive Gulf hurricanes on record. It’s particularly bad timing considering that, less than three weeks ago, instead of working with Congress to craft comprehensive legislation to address the ongoing crisis and deliver desperately-needed aid, President Trump looted FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund to the tune of $44 billion — authorizing the agency to pay for a $300 per week supplement to regular unemployment benefits.
Hurricane Laura made landfall in Louisiana as a Category 4 storm, killed at least four people and causing widespread damage. And now FEMA will be hard-pressed to help. Be prepared to read lotsa human interest stories about how FEMA (and therefore the gubmint) has failed Possum Hollar. It doesn’t matter that Lord Damp Nut did it. No matter what the topic is, Lord Damp Nut always finds a way to make it worse. Always.
But all is not lost, as Scissorhead Karla shows up there there is an upside:
So I guess Gawd Hates The Confederacy? I’ll take it!
