US PolitIX - Michael Cohen Ruined Infrastructure Week

Our governor finally admitted that the death toll was much higher than the initial 64.

Just like any other study that has been released in the past 11 months, I’m pissed.

And it’s more enraging when the President of the United States says he’s still “proud” of the recovery efforts, regardless of how many deaths.

While not much could have been done without the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and many other American companies (to which I’m grateful for), fuck Trump. And fuck my governor for continuing to kiss his ass.

I know the Weather Channel has been talking about the death toll discrepancy and keeping tabs on Puerto Rico's recovery efforts for months now. I think I've heard more about Puerto Rico from them than I have most news outlets in general. It's insane and shameful that the numbers were that messed up. All involved in the lies and lack of any decent aid should be punished/removed from office.

You can’t make this shit up.
Wow, that's dumb.

I was reading about how some of the shifting demographics in Arizona could affect the GOP's chances in November. I hope the Democrats can take that state.

So, seemingly out of nowhere Trump is lying about an interview that’s been out there for 18 months? He’s just now accusing Lester Holt of editing the interview. I wonder what triggered this?

I think you can see by the recent departures in the WH what Trump's next moves are. He's going to fire Sessions either very soon, or after the mid-term elections. Followed by firing Mueller.

He keeps going after that Bruce Ohr (and his wife), so I feel like we may be getting some news regarding collusion soon.

Roger Stone / Don Jr have been rumored for a while to be next in indictment line

He's absolutely unravelling before our eyes.

I think at this point it's imperative to take control of the House in November. The Senate is an uphill battle that really doesn't even absolutely have to be won. President Orange Mobster can't work with a Democratic Congress for even 5 minutes and the inevitable move to impeach will send him over the edge. So forget all the details, Session and this and that and concentrate 100% on getting out the vote and sending home as many immoral enablers as humanly possible.

Not exactly the meteor I’ve been praying for since November 2016, but this will do:

Probably won't happen before midterms, though.

I sometimes look at Fox News just to see what they are covering, and fuck me if their top 3 stories today aren't about Hillary's emails.

She isn't the president. Let if fucking go already.

It’s the master illusionist at work. Talk about Obama and Hillary all day.

People forget how long it’s been if they keep hearing the news. Let it die out and try to revive it and they’ll have forgotten.

It’s literally catnip for Fox News viewers.

As if he'd have really cared about Katrina's effect on New Orleans - since so many black people were affected.

BTW thank you for that detailed description of your time in Canada's armed forces.
McCain's tendency toward going war as a solutuon was a problem for me, as well as picking Palin.
I tend to respect service, but I also know there can be bad soldiers, higher ups etc. I've certainly listened to theoretical discussion on soldiers struggling with responses to potential illegal orders etc

McCain did make that (last?) vote related to health-care which has probably saved lives!

So beyond disgusting. Americans like us.
Certainly not ignored on WNYC public radio, NPR, NYC local commercial TV news. Definitely from their reporting over first a feral weeks that there would be way more deaths due to lack of food, clean water, lack of electricity for medical devices, bad road conditions in the more mountainous rural towns for people to get their medications, get dialysis oxygen supplies, etc.

Newt Gingrich ALSO came up with list of derogatory terms for Repubs to call Democrats.

Huh. TIL that you have to hold the most extreme views of any racist in order to be legitimately called a racist. Thanks, American Conservative!

For sure.

Who is better suited to creating a racism sliding scale than a white man?
