    i salute this representative standing up for her people in face of such discrimination and racism …its a shame that the president is not worthy of the office , whilst she is doing her best for her own public …..sad to see the puerto rican’s treated again as second class citizens considering their sacrifice in so many wars for america, and they have only received attention from the corporate exploiters for their pains :(… If was them , i would go push for the greenland swap deal , as at least the dane’s would treat them fairly 🙂

    *Every single promise that Trump made to his base, back in 2016, has been a broken promise.* All of them except one: he continually brutalizes innocent Hispanic people. So I guess we know why Trump’s base continues to support him, despite all of those broken promises: they’re evil, disgusting, racist Nazis. _Every single one of them._ They don’t care if Trump lies to them — just so long as he keeps terrorizing Hispanic people.

  3. Maybe the storm might hit Mary Loco that would be one storm Trump might be concerned about.

  4. You people all need to get behind the sea wall at Trump Doral, I’m pretty sure that got funding.

  5. “I hope paper towels can clean up radioactive hurricanes.” – t’rump thinking about how to solve this problem.

      😅😂😂😂😂😂 my god, ” you people are stupid!”

    • Lol stupid

    • @Radicalsoybean FarmerJoe!
      they are?
      According to US news website Axios, the president said in a meeting with top national security and homeland security officials about the threat of hurricanes: “I got it. I got it. Why don’t we nuke them?”

      “They start forming off the coast of Africa, as they’re moving across the Atlantic, we drop a bomb inside the eye of the hurricane and it disrupts it. Why can’t we do that?”

      Quoting unnamed sources who were present at the meeting, Axios report that the response from one official was “We’ll look into this.”

      On Sunday, the White House declined to comment on the Axios report. “We don’t comment on private discussions that the president may or may not have had with his national security team,” it said.
      .
      Axios reported that Trump raised the same issue on another occasion with a senior administration official. This conversation was apparently recorded in a 2017 national security council memo which used the term “nuclear” in reference to the conversation.

      Axios quoted a senior official who defended Trump’s ability to ask tough questions: “His goal – to keep a catastrophic hurricane from hitting the mainland – is not bad. His objective is not bad.”

      Shortly after Trump came to power National Geographic published an article pointing out how frequently the idea of nuking hurricanes has been raised over the last few decades. “It’s an appealing thought,” it said, “especially when, during hurricane season, we’re annually reminded of the immense destruction wrought by these storms.

      “And it’s probably why, every year for the past six decades, government agencies have received missives from concerned citizens, urging preemptive attacks against hurricanes using nuclear weapons.”

      In the article, Nuking Hurricane: The Surprising History of a Really Bad Idea, the magazine pointed out that the response from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration was: “Needless to say, this is not a good idea.”

      seems to moi, that it’s donne dementia that’s the stupid one

  6. I am still wonder how they are going to build the wall with rolls of paper towels?? Are they going to be made in Mexico ?

      @Hildebeast Clinton – What’s also in the report… “If we had confidence that the president did not commit a crime, we would have so stated.”

    • claude ghendrih | August 30, 2019 at 5:47 AM | Reply

      @Hildebeast Clinton But proof of collusion is abundant and clear , not a crime but still an impeachable offense .
      By the way Mueller didn’t check his financials, so that proof of conspiracy might still crop up when congress gets his tax returns .

  8. I always knew he was a self serving spoiled POS💩

    • @Radicalsoybean FarmerJoe! STFU.

      The bigger picture is not about immigrants, it’s about having something else for people to focus on while Donald Trump and Putin Rob the United States blind. Greed and money, Trump is not helping the people he talked about helping. If anything things have gotten alot worse except for that 1% through know fault of their own…through Trump helping the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.

      @Wonder Wonderful if the left is right and the right is left, that would make ” up is down & down Is up ” right kiddo?

  9. Let us just hope that Dorian wipes out Doral, and saves America from yet another diplomatic disaster, with a wall, of water.

    • Shirlette Williams | August 29, 2019 at 5:00 PM | Reply

      Only trouble with that is he probably has it insured for a lot more and he will win again.

    • @Shirlette Williams For him, the tragedy is that it will still be a losing property and will not be boosted by the G7 happening there, since it will not happen there.
      Some of his supporters will take it as a sign from god that Trump is not chosen.
      He will make himself an exception and reassign enough of the lost FEMA funds to his property while also collecting insurance.
      He has hurricane insurance but does he have flood insurance? hurricane insurance does not cover flooding caused by the hurricane.
      That was how a lot of people lost their homes the last time a hurricane hit North and South Carolina, just a few years ago.
      Doral has been losing money because of the bed bugs (they were real, he lost the lawsuit about them) and hundreds of unresolved health and safety violations on the property.
      That and his bad name has caused his big money maker to become a loser. He is hoping that having the G7 there will make it a winner for him, again.

  10. The House should start diverting funds away from the white house.  Let the “billionaire” blowhard pay for all his and his staffs  transportation/Living costs like every American must do.  He’s living on welfare while in the white house.  If he did a presidential job then it’s ok, but he’s not doing a job.  Too busy tweeting, and watching tv.  Cut as much funds from the white house and any department that is diverting funds for his “wall”.

    • @dan mac go scream into the sky some more see where it gets you. The same place ironing that blue ribbon you won for participation.

  11. IMPEACH TRUMP NOW
    He will continue to steal money from the Emergency Funds.

      Susan Kochan so how many cats you have dear.

    • Interesting thought: what if that hurricane hits Mar-a-Logo and does a lot of damage. Wonder if trump will take money from FEMA to repair his property and the heck with the rest of Florida. Just a thought.

      Nancanator We can only wish! With trump there even better!

    • Wonder Wonderful | August 30, 2019 at 12:43 AM | Reply

      @Nancanator Yes! He will and justify why he needs to do it. It will be know shame in his game. What people seems to forget Donald Trump is not going to react as humans bc he’s not human. He shows know human emotions. Only if it effects him directly.

    • JoAnne Middaugh | August 30, 2019 at 9:58 AM | Reply

      @Nancanator I had the same thought. I wish there was a way to deny him the funding but I doubt there is one. He will take the money even if there is NO damage. He’s done it before.

    Trump would rather lock up children at the border than fund FEMA

  13. The only way that these United States of America is going to even “survive” Trump is if Moscow Mitch and Putrified Pelosi are removed from their positions immediately and the rest of Congress moves swiftly and deadly to block and stop every illegal move that Trump is doing! As soon as he does something, the house needs to move fast and pass legislation, to make sure his evil policies are never implemented! This is what the 3 branches of government was set up to accomplish and it is way past time for Congress to get up and and FINALLY do the job they are being highly paid to do!!!

  14. I hope Trump and his prostitute wife go to his golf course and it get taken away

    • swimingbird88 | August 29, 2019 at 8:39 PM | Reply

      Why do you say prostitute like it’s a bad thing. “A prostitute is someone who will love you no matter who you are or what you look like”

    • Why does he call her a prostitute because that’s a very progressive thing to do.

  15. Trump, Pence and their entire criminal administration are probably hoping Trump’s Doral and it’s bed bugs will be destroyed. Trump will leave the FEMA money alone if he will benefit from it and if Doral no longer exists; the inquiry into whether Trump is committing a crime by trying to hold the G6 (can we even say G7 anymore since Trump hates our allies so much) at his private resort.

    You say you saw a difference in 2018? That was a Blue Wave 🌊, in 2020 your going to see a BLUE SUNAMI !!!
    BERNIE SANDERS 2020!!

    • Richie Tattersall | August 29, 2019 at 7:58 PM | Reply

      “National Registered Voter Turnout in Federal Elections” 2016 was the lowest it’s been in 20 years, he won the Electoral but lost the popular vote by just under 3 Million. 2018 set new Mid-term records and it was still just over 50.1% 113 Million Citizens of the United States of America voted, and the Republicans lost by 10 Million. The highest % since 1960, WAS 1960, Obama’s 1st term was #4 in the list. Those numbers are OUR OWN FAULT! Nov 3rd 2020, get up of your @#@# AND VOTE!!!!!!!

    • I’d say Kamala Harris with Bernie Sanders as VP 2020.

  17. wait until the hurricane is directly over mar a lago before you drop the nuke

  18. With Epstein dead, how about Rev. Jim Baker on the ticket with Tramp? We need two liars on the ticket.

    • Donald’s anointer Jim and his wife 5 abortion Lori are busy selling food buckets and Chinese fuel less generators right now during the hurricane. As soon as the storm passes he’ll be back calling The Don, “Gods Chosen One”.

    • #TrumpPence2020 bring it on.

    • Virtuitous Vampire | August 29, 2019 at 11:57 PM | Reply

      Koch brother died too. I’m hoping Trump has a Cheeto cheeseburgler heart attack. These old pedo coots can’t die fast enough.

  19. Just wait until he diverts $200 million to repair Mar-A-Loser!

  20. if we get a direct hit on trumps property the fema money will come quick then
