Hurricane Florence is moving west towards an expected Friday or Saturday landfall along the Carolina coast, and the Washington Post editorial board made the storm political with this take on who’s “complicit” with the hurricane:

Everything’s political now, even hurricanes:

President Trump issued several warnings on his Twitter feed Monday, counseling those in Florence’s projected path to prepare and listen to local officials. That was good advice.

Yet 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.

Democracy Dies in Darkness, as does journalistic credibility. And that’s from the Post’s editorial board, not just one opinion contributor.

Trump must have borrowed the magic weather machine from Dick Cheney.

That’s what we’re supposed to believe, apparently.

Narrator: They brought politics into it anyway.
