Donald Trump wants everyone to know that he is dealing with the biggest, bigliest hurricane in history, which he will do a great job handling unless he doesn’t, and then it will be someone else’s fault. His first thought during one of the potentially deadliest hurricanes in history, though, was not the American people. It was the unfairness of being investigated for allegedly colluding with a hostile foreign country to steal an election.

Lou Dobbs, for the record, is not a lawyer nor an investigator. He is not part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team and he has no idea what evidence they have found. Dobbs is a Fox News personality, a network that quickly became state run news media once Trump was elected, and its his job to say that Trump is wonderful and has done nothing wrong, despite whether or not those claims are factually accurate.
His opinion on the investigation means nothing.
What is meaningful, however, is that lives are in danger along the east coast and inland from Hurricane Florence. Hopefully, every state affected will be red states who voted for Trump in 2016, because that means he’ll care about the lives of voters there and make sure those responsible for emergency management will address the coming problems quickly and efficiently.
If not, people there will fare no better than Puerto Rico, who has no electoral college votes to offer Trump. The United States territory lost 3,000 residents to Hurricane Maria and Trump is praising that as a “success,” but also blaming a local mayor in San Juan for all the success it wasn’t. That’s Trump in a nutshell.
