  • Fake news. Southeast AL was in the path.
    Every weatherman said that the had no idea where the storm would hit. Plenty of predictions that the storm would hit AL.
    Just more fake news by the fake news msm.
    I don't know how this is a bigger story than the muslim Omar. She cheated our immigration laws, our tax laws, our University laws. She is married to her brother. She just gave her new boyfriend $200,000 in campaign finances.
    Why no story on this ?
    Or that AOC embezzeled somewhere around $800,000 from her campaign?
    Meaningless fake news.

  • He's enabled because those who enable him know it's to their advantage to allow lies and fake reality. They are a minority party and this is the only way they know to hold power. It comes with the disgusting excuse for morals conservatives have. Woozalini just turned the light on them. Besides most of those people who support him are uneducated, low IQ morons. They'll believe anything he tells them anyway. Too bad the storm didn't wash Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas off the map. That would've shut down a whole lot of shallow gene pools.

  • Y'all better get ready for another 4 years of Trump. He's going to win if reparations aren't on the table. MSNC has all these blk folks on their shows thinking they speak for ADOS, they're total mistaken. Then the ones they have on need to stop misleading the people in thinking they do. All this ignoring ADOS concerns is a bad strategy for the DNC and MSNBC. MSNBC us going to be like CNN was in 2016. Wrong Wrong Wrong in their predictions of whose going to win Whitehouse. ADOS " CUT THA CHECK ".

  • What I want to know is, since Obama thinks there are 58 States in the United States can he name 51 thru 58? Heres a clue Stomponia is # 51

  • One of Alabama's politician's Twitter feed announced a mandated evacuation with updates. He said Trump was updating him

  • Every day he is throwing bone at you to distract you and it works
    This week you all should have talked about what it leaked out about Brian Hook trying to bribe the Iranian oil tanker captain ,instead you guys keeping us busy by this ,do you think he is really that stupid to do this ?

  • Eita ele sorry com a desgraça do povo ele mesmo é responsável por elas .É o presidente. Deveria ter condolências nesta hora este Monstro. De Weapons. É ects

  • The know-nothing party, happily wrapping themselves in that gooey, thick, shock-resistent material to protect themselves against the boo-boos out there but wait, that's nitroglycerin, and Trumpsterfire has his itchy finger on the big red button.

  • Trump definitely knows where Alabama is, because allegedly Jeff sessions secretly met with Russians at the Alabama state house..but I never heard that being questioned by dems, or mueller.

  • Still people vote for this Mr. Trump. Even people who went to school, church.. Well.. People who don't fact check? 🙈.. I'm wondering what they need to wake up. Evangelists been shot in church by a Trumper on a rampage. Republicans victims of the hurricane and flooding. More farmers going bankrupt.. Foodstamp money for the wall Mexico would pay.. Money to renovate Mara a Lago because of the people Mr. Trump invites. Or money for renovation of a good function aircraft.. Just for fun.. While people who vote for him can't make it.

  • Did Trump REALLY say that THIS is the first time he heard of a category 5 storm? 🙄 There have been category four and five storms for awhile now; a sign of the climate changes, but of course anyone who doesn't believe in climate change will NOT particularly pay attention to the growing severity of the storms. THIS is the person we have in the WH! Brilliant! 🤦

  • With ALL news outlets liberal with democratic views there's no way you will hear anything good about any presidents that are Republican.

  • Trump will ignore the Bahamas too just like Puerto Rico………I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHY….
    Maybe he'll toss paper towels to all those Black people just like two years ago in Puerto Rico. I bet if Moscow or St Petersburg got hit by a Cat 5 hurricane ( will name it Dmitri….LOL!!! ) we'd be sending all kinds of aid over there.

  • It’s like those with common sense knows Trump is not fit for this job and even that he obviously can learn a great deal on other things
