How do you know when you have State 4 Trump Derangement Syndrome?
When you say President Trump is “complicit” in deaths that haven’t happened yet, that’s how.
With that in mind, it’s safe to say that the editorial staff of the Washington comPost are clearly out of their minds, their rational thought process twisted by a terminal case of TDS. It’s a sad, but entertaining thing to see.
Now why would they blame the President for deaths that haven’t even happened yet? Why because of his views on climate change, of course! What else could it be?
Florence hasn’t yet hit land, but The Post published a column on Wednesday with the headline, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.”
Sure, the president gave some “good advice” when he issued hurricane warnings by Twitter earlier — but then the newspaper launched into a full-out attack on the president.
“When it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans’ role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks. It is hard to attribute any single weather event to climate change. But there is no reasonable doubt that humans are priming the Earth’s systems to produce disasters,” the editorial board wrote.
“With depressingly ironic timing, the Trump administration announced Tuesday a plan to roll back federal rules on methane, a potent greenhouse gas that is the main component in natural gas. Drillers and transporters of the fuel were supposed to be more careful about letting it waft into the atmosphere, which is nothing more than rank resource waste that also harms the environment,” The Post’s editorial board also declared.
“The Trump administration has now attacked all three pillars of President Barack Obama’s climate change plan.”
The article finished with, “The president has cemented the GOP’s legacy as one of reaction and reality denial. Sadly, few in his party appear to care.”
“Hurricane Florence will likely be another tragedy that will affect millions of Americans, and it’s disgusting when folks in the media will try to exploit it to attack the president,” Mediaite columnist Joseph Wulfsohn told Fox News.
In addition to The Post’s slam against Trump, Politico ran a piece with this headline on Wednesday: “Trump Struggles to Embrace Consoler-in-Chief Role.”
And CNN’s Jeff Toobin even turned the argument toward racism: “They’re not white people [those in Puerto Rico], and they don’t count to Donald Trump as much as the deaths of white people,” as Howard Kurtz noted in Fox News.

The storm may stall for 24-48 hours, said weather expert Janice Dean of Fox News on Thursday morning — so it’s a “prolonged wind event, prolonged surge event, prolonged rain event,” she added this morning on “Fox & Friends.”
“It’s going to stay with us until probably Monday,” she said, discussing the critical amounts of rainfall that may result.
“Don’t pay attention to the category … It’s the fact that this storm is going to slow down” and bring enormous amounts of water and potentially huge amounts of damage with it.
