This thread was removed from the Political Madness Forum and placed in the trash bin.

I was invited to re-post the thread here in the Mud Pit apparently due to it being considered Mud Pit Material.

[snipped]

You see, millions of Americans are bracing for what could end up being the worst hurricane in recorded history. With this disaster looming, and after being briefed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the man at the helm of the nation had this comment to make about it.



"I'm not sure that I've ever even heard of a Category 5. I knew it existed," he said during a Federal Emergency Management Administration briefing, adding: "But a Category 5 is something that — I don't know that I've ever even heard the term other than I know it's there."

The fact that there have been 4 that have threatened the US since he took office including Irma, Micheal and Maria seems to have escaped his awareness.
Anyone else here remember those? Apparently by his own statements, Mr. President, does not.

Making matters worse there was this Presidential Statement in 2017


Trump made a similar comment in 2017, saying of Hurricane Irma at the White House Historical Association dinner that “I never even knew a Category 5 existed.”

Here we have the President of the United States, the head honcho in times of crisis that directly threatens millions of Americans and he can only repeat a statement of personal ignorance he stated two years before.

This is why the country actually has knowlegable people in critical positions during these type of events.

He can hand out some box lunches in a couple of weeks.

If we're going to consider this an actual syndrome of Presidents then surely we should go back and look at the previous administrations as well. It's some nice trolling, providing a topic to discuss that leads to nothing except the usual partisan behavior you enjoy. There are certainly things the current administration ought to be criticized for, but this is just childish.

I think this OP is critical and should be mandatory teaching in all public schools.


This will (in all likelihood) cause the total destruction of the planet.

I can safely say, with all calmness and maturity that we will all die because of Trump and we are now utterly doomed.

And since I used the word, "utterly" it reminded me of cows, and that cows are probably "udderly" doomed.


Stay brave, stay strong. And always use Axe Body Spray, because the babes dig it.

Does it even really matter if Trump claims he never heard of a Cat 5 Hurricane before?
Just as long as FEMA knows what the # it is.

Cow farts cause climate change, and climate change is racist.
Your support for cows is racist!

MSNBC has a montage of clips of him talking about a cat 5.

Did you know that not a lot of people are aware of them? Yup according to the donald.

I thought everybody knew about them but apparently I dont know squat.

Are you speaking for the mods now?

I'd like an explanation from a mod on the matter so I will ask in PM's.

No need. There is plenty of material with this one.

NO. We should take it as a given that past presidents have suffered from this problem. Rehashing it's existence in the past will take us nowhere.

However, this is the president we have now. It is he who is facing the apparently weather driven calamities that we now seem to be facing, not Obama or Clinton or anyone else. Trump is the guy who is in charge NOW and he appears to not be up to the challenge.

What will we do about HIM, not others.
