Trump floated nuking hurricanes to stop them from hitting US: report

:snippity:
https://thehill.com/homenews/administra ... -us-report
I wonder what yield a nuke would be required to make some impression on a hurricane. A hurricane is just the visible part of a yuuge weather system. Nuking it at the side will hardly make it change its path. Nuke it at the center and one likely gets the opposite - the mushrooming hot air pulls even more warm sea water up into the circling masses. Extend the hurricane scale to 6 - a trumpian desaster. :blackeye:

Trump needs to straw boss that operation. He'll be comfortable in the eye of the storm as he directs to bomber for a direct hit.

Well, Jelly Pudding was a stage name for Frank Wood when he was playing that damn hippie music on Sunday nights. (and I remember that) and then it blossomed into a show that 3 or 4 people I can think of hosted, but it was always on Sunday night and always "The Jelly Pudding Show".

Gosh I miss the time when we had a good radio station. WEBN wasn't even about the music, really. Oh well, guess I'll go suck down a few 40s of Bull Frog Beer and fall asleep.

I had trouble hearing what BoJo was saying. But I kept cringing as I listened to Trump.

Scaramucci: G-7 summit an 'unmitigated disaster' for Trump

Former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Monday described President Trump’s attendance at the Group of Seven (G-7) summit as an “unmitigated disaster.”

“He’s more or less been isolated by the other leaders. The French government brought in the Iranian foreign and finance ministers to discuss things without even letting the president of the United States know,” the now-vocal Trump critic said on CNN’s “New Day.”

“Again, his ‘American first’ strategy is becoming ‘America alone,’” Scaramucci concluded.
........................
“I’ve been saying for the last two weeks that he’s melting down at the core,” Scaramucci speculated about the president’s emotional state on CNN. “A couple more weeks like this, I think it is an unmitigated situation. You’ve got to get Republican leaders to come in and say the truth at some point.”

Bull Frog was the more full bodied, darker, high alcohol version. Tree Frog, even though "it gets your there faster" was still like lite beer, by comparison. Both of them had that distinct taste you could only get with the sparkling, slightly glowing, waters of The Mill Creek.

If Pence wasn't in Ireland, he'd gladly fall on his sword for trump. We all know trump opened his desk drawer, grabbed his sharpie and went to town, much to the horror of anyone in the room. His shocked face when the reporter asked him who wielded the sharpie says everything.

It's just a matter of whether or not somebody has the cajones to leak it.

Anyone else especially a weather person would have had the sense to properly enlarge the cone with a matching section. Only Teh Donald would place a mushroom to the end. Did he seriously think he needed to show off his "I know everything and possibly better than anyone" by proposing a forecast of 0.01% probability that Dorian would end up in Alahambras?

Was that Mcaleenan I saw handing Trump the doctored image? Can't wait for the next time he's due to testify in front of a committee. I'm imagining Ted Lieu asking him how that whole thing came about :popcorn:

The image with all the tracks from the different models was altered too. Someone messed with the balance/contrast to make the little thin lines going to Alabama darker.

This is what they call an ensemble model, the lines aren't all hurricane tracks. Meant for meteorologists, not for public consumption like the cone models.

Beyond that, that particular map was prepared by the South Florida Water Management District and was never supplied to Trump. https://www.sfwmd.gov/

Some sycophant in Trump's White House scrambled around and found this map and thought it would provide cover.

This was the originally projected path of the Hurricane in its early stages. As you can see, almost all models predicted it to go through Florida also hitting Georgia and Alabama. I accept the Fake News apologies!

Aside: I had my signature on file at the U.S. Treasury. I had the authority to sign government checks. A signature like his would never have been accepted. It's far to easy to forge.

There is a "The homeless in U.S. society" thread but I thought this should stay in "Trump Administration"

Trump officials tour empty California FAA facility as potential site to relocate homeless: report

A California facility once used by the Federal Aviation Administration was toured by a team of Trump administration officials searching for sites to relocate the state’s homeless population, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

The Post, citing three government officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity, reports the facility that was toured is located in or near Los Angeles.

One official told the paper Trump, who is expected to visit California on Tuesday and Wednesday, said there were discussions about an announcement related to the homelessness problem in the state next week. A second official told the paper that a decision is not currently scheduled for the trip.
.............................
The development comes a day after the Post reported that President Trump directed officials to crack down on homelessness in California and discussed relocating homeless people into government-backed facilities.
..................................
White House spokesman Judd Deere told The Hill in a statement that Trump "has directed his team to ...develop a range of policy options for consideration to deal with this tragedy."

Alex Comisar, a spokesperson for Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D), told The Hill in a statement the city welcomes the administration and “look forward to showing them our work to confront this humanitarian emergency.”
