This is the cartoon in today’s Times newspaper (that’s the ‘London Times,’ for those of you who live in countries with similarly named newspapers):
I was going to make this a Wordless Wednesday post, but felt the need to add a few words. Apparently, Numpty Trumpty couldn’t resist commenting on the size of the crowds awaiting his photo opportunity trip to Texas, hence this cartoon. Putting aside the possibility that they had been hired to be there, this is crass, even by the low levels of humanity this idiot has established with his Presidency. I accept that politicians are in a no win situation when it comes to their response to natural disasters, but for him and his wife to turn up wearing unsuitable clothing, some of which is now available to buy on his website, and crowing about how many people have come to see him isn’t going to do much for disaster relief, is it? Then again, any scientist who tells him that Hurricane Harvey is the result of climate change will be reminded that it is a Chinese hoax. So that’s alright, then.
POTUS45: the first to be known by his IQ. What an embarrassment. My heart goes out to those affected by this disaster, and particularly those who are mourning the loss of loved ones. I hope that they can be helped to recover and will be protected in the future – despite the fact that, a mere two weeks ago, this same President removed the requirements for restorative work to be carried out to high standards. How that fits with making America great again is beyond me. Maybe he’s hoping that his wall will keep out the bad weather?
