One of the most amazing things to watch during the Donald Trump presidency is the fuss over his public statements and speeches. Pundits and the press much preferred smooth-talking Barack Obama, though they must have known every speech, every statement, every tweet was the product of a committee.

Sure, Trump says some stupid things, but he also says some smart things that pundits and the press manage to twist into sounding stupid. We’re not sure what Chelsea Clinton’s beef is here, but this is the quote that apparently triggered her Saturday.

The response to the flooding has been a wonderful thing to watch, from the Coast Guard to the National Guard to the Cajun Navy to folks with boats posting their phone numbers for anyone who needed a lift. Or maybe we just heard things incorrectly:

Yeah, we don’t see the problem here. Sure, we’d have a problem if Trump had said something truly insensitive, like, “People lost their lives, loved ones, homes, beloved pets. BUT WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE?”

Ever since we saw her mother walk cheerfully out of Chelsea’s apartment hours after collapsing and being stuffed into an SUV, we’ve been really curious about what sort of pharmaceuticals Chelsea has on hand.

Maybe Chelsea could have saved some outrage for that piece in Slate explaining how Houston is no showcase for “America at its best” but just “a junior varsity team elevated by circumstance.”

If anyone from the Clinton Foundation ever hassles you to donate money for Harvey recovery, just look ’em in the eye and say loudly and clearly, “Back up, you creep!”
