Well, we’re seeing a trend starting. A former prime minister of Canada is keeping an eye on Hurricane Dorian and “rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago!” Not to be outdone, blue-check journalist David Leavitt is also sending Hurricane Dorian to climate-denier Donald Trump’s Florida resort “with my compliments.”
Trump: Climate change is a hoax.
Earth ?: Here’s a Category 4 hurricane with 130+ mph winds aimed right at Mar-a-Lago, with my compliments. pic.twitter.com/NDkSzJB0sh

Yeah, it must be climate change, because it’s unheard of for there to be hurricanes during hurricane season.
People are awfully giddy about the hurricane making landfall in a populated area if it means Mar-a-Lago might take some damage.
Because there was never a hurricane before 2016. Or 1996. Or whenever the fuck you people started threatening us with “climate change”, “global warming”, or “global cooling”.

You’d think he’d be embarrassed by such Chicken Littling, but nope.

The climate equivalent of Bill Maher hoping for a major recession. Trump has billions, and insurance, and it’s a resort not his personal residence. Meanwhile, thousands of homes around the place also get wiped out. Great job rooting for that.

There have been hurricanes for many centuries. Not sure this proves what you think it proves.
I'll spare you the GIF from the Princess Bride.

We've had big bad hurricanes in Florida for centuries.
Mar-a-Lago is a concrete edifice. It will do just fine. Plus, fully insured for hurricanes.
But many average homeowners wont, and their under-insured.

Everyone who loses homes and loved ones can send the damage bills to this asshole, with my compliments. https://t.co/qbIFsmERgd

?IGNORANT TWEET OF THE DAY?

Stupidest tweet of the day.
— Lowbush Lightning (@docand2611) August 29, 2019
Ah, we think the prime minister’s was worse.
Apparently, we have hurricanes now.
— Funky Code Medina ✝️ (@spazafraz) August 29, 2019
Because hurricanes are new.
— While Supplies Last (@corrcomm) August 29, 2019
Because Florida has never in history experienced a major hurricane landfall before ?
I mean, between this and Alyssa Milano, I'm lovin' the free comedy I'm getting from Twitter today ?
— Grube ?? (@racerxero84) August 29, 2019
Yeah, cause there never were hurricanes in the past, man.

First hurricane ever? That's news!

Hurricanes have been hitting America for centuries. It has nothing to do with climate change

Hurricanes aren’t new, bro. They’ve been around for a while.
— 49ersCamelot (@49ersCamelot) August 29, 2019
I can't believe this is the first time in history a powerful hurricane has hit Florida. Orange Man BAD!
— Diesel ?? (@MLR_88) August 29, 2019
Imagine hating Trump so much, that you’d wish the weakest and most vulnerable may perish and/or lose everything so a billionaire would have to call his insurance company to rebuild after a hurricane. Same people who’d be hardest hit in the recession they’re hoping for. Assholes.
— Ronna Burgundy Agrees to Disagree? (@KathyPoteau) August 29, 2019
1. He doesn’t even live there. 2. If it gets damaged, he will get insurance $$ to build it even bigger and better. 3. You’re basically wishing everyone in that area to be wiped out with a storm such as this. Keyboard warriors.

I can see why you’re an award winning journalist
— Airborne87 (@HSAGreg) August 29, 2019
Where a supposedly award winning journalist shows both: he has no fucking idea what a hurricane is AND that only twice in the last 20 years has there not been tropical activity during labor day weekend.

But if it hits Mar-a-Lago that’ll prove to President Trump that climate change is real and he’ll nuke China and India to put a stop to it.
‘Disgusting & classless’: Guess where an ex Canadian Prime Minister is ‘rooting for’ a Hurricane Dorian ‘direct hit’ https://t.co/kxgReXUHxn
