Re: Trump cancels Denmark visit

I would rather bit hit by a hurricane than a radiation fog, to be honest.

Just twice, allegedly.

Trump also raised the idea in another conversation with a senior administration official. A 2017 NSC memo describes that second conversation, in which Trump asked whether the administration should bomb hurricanes to stop them from hitting the homeland.
Probably hadn't got an answer back from the 1st time.

Assuming this is all true:-
If it had been a Democratic President,
1) it wouldn't have been leaked or reported.
2) Nobody would've batted an eyelid if it had been reported.

Trying to a disrupt a hurricane by whatever method, probably isn't a good idea as it would likely disrupt other relatively benign and/or beneficial weather systems.

If it's a stupid idea it will probably be leaked and doubtless reported. There's plenty of neutral, right-wing and indeed left-wing media in the world who would be keen to highlight a daft idea if it was floated by a Democrat. Or do you think that the Democrat Party has the likes of the Barclay Brothers and the Murdochs in its tight grip? And everyone assisting Trump is a Democrat looking for something to leak?

Well why not make a bid?


I admit itís been very clumsy and not really serious, and I donít they really meant it. But nothing is for sale until you make an offer.
