Late Night Open Thread: COMPLICIT

Of course the Zombie-Eyed Granny Starver don’t care — he’s out the door already — but let’s keep reminding those “low info voters” that EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN would just as soon see them dead, as long as it didn’t interfere with the GOP crime spree going so well right now…

    If only Trump hadn’t brought up the Maria deathtoll.

    Then the MSM could have gotten away with continuing to ignore it.

    @Viva BrisVegas: Trump opened his fat mouth and did it to himself. Again. The Puerto Rico disaster, front and center is exactly what I hoped to see. Keep talking Orange Genius.

    Former Trump Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert wishes Trump had expressed empathy for Puerto Rico. Fuck your empathy. You’re up to your neck in complicity with this malicious administration.

    Begrudgingly give him credit for being limber. It’s not easy for anyone, much less a 71-year-old, to stick his foot in his mouth at the same time his head is up his ass.

    I’ll just say what I just said, which is there is no reason to dispute these numbers. This is a devastating riot that hit an isolated embassy in Libya. And that’s really no one’s fault. It’s just what happened.

    Been following Florence coverage on Twitter since 4:30am my time. 185K people without power in NC. 200 people already rescued in New Bern. 150 awaiting rescue. People stuck in attics and on roofs. 22 + inches of rain recorded in Atlantic Beach. Storm moving at 6mph and has basically stalled. Eyewall just approaching Wilmington, NC as we speak.

    @Litlebritdifrnt: New Bern looks to be practically destroyed. Middle Street has never flooded. It’s underwater. The videos taken at Oriental are terrible.

    Litlebritdifrnt says:

    @Quinerly: @NotMax: Agree to both. The problem is going to be the duration of the storm. Read a report that says the Lumbee River in Columbus County is not going to crest until Tuesday at levels higher than Hurricane Matthew which absolutely devastated the county when that happened. No idea how bad it is going to get this time. This is not going to be a quick disaster, it is going to go on for days. Also the storm is only moving at 6mph. For all intents and purposes it has stalled.

    Scared that it would stall. Just dumping all that rain😢😢

    @sm*t cl*de: I’ll just say what I just said, which is there is no reason to dispute these numbers. This was a devastating pair of jet planes that hit 2 isolated towers in NYC. And that’s really no one’s fault. It’s just what happened.

    Was New Bern under evacuation orders?

    @JPL: Yes

  38. 38
    JPL says:

    @Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism: Thanks. Not everyone has the means to evacuate, and for those trapped in their attics, I hope they are rescued soon.

  39. 39
    Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism says:

    @JPL: I have reason to be familiar with Carteret County’s stormwater handling system and their disaster plan, at least up to about ten years ago. Quinerly said above that Middle Street never floods; there’s a reason for that. You will not find a group of politicians more dedicated to handling the threat of too much water.

    This is … unanticipated, even for the professionals.

  40. 40
    Quinerly says:

    @Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism: New Bern is in Craven County. There is also a Middle Street in Beaufort, NC. Weather Channel was interviewing a restaurant owner (over the phone) in New Bern.

    Quinerly says:

    @Litlebritdifrnt: This looks to be more like Floyd when that storm just sat and churned water for days. I actually road out Matthew at Pine Knoll Shores 2 years ago. Only lost power on Bogue Banks for a few hrs after the sun came out the next day. Severe flooding an hr inland in Craven and Pitt counties around Vanceboro and the town I grew up in, Grifton. That also was the flood pattern with Floyd, as I recall.

  42. 42
    Quinerly says:

    @Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism: do we know that for sure? I haven’t seen confirmation. Just out of state people that know nothing about the area ranting on Twitter and blaming people they don’t know. I guess I should seriously Google. 😊

  43. 43
    Quinerly says:

    @Quinerly: OK, finally Googled.. all of Craven County under evacuation orders. Order came after Carteret County’s order. Sorry for any confusion.

  44. 44
    Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism says:

    @Quinerly: Duh. Sorry, that was pre-caffeine. No idea why Carteret was on my mind.

    Company I worked for back then had a second office in New Bern. Senior engineer with them retired to there and interfaced with the local government for us.

    I’ll grant I’m mostly familiar with the town through their stormwater plans….

    I was telling people earlier this week, as the forward speed reduced and it started to spread out, that this would be another Floyd.

  45. 45
    Quinerly says:

    @Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism: It’s Floyd all over. Going to sit for days.
    This is very bad. Those hog farms… I remember that.

  46. 46
    Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism says:

    @Quinerly: I did link. And that gives me even less excuse for the county confusion; WITN clearly says Craven.

    Need moar caffeine. Maybe an IV drip would suffice.

  47. 47
    Quinerly says:

    @Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism: hang in there. Pine Knoll Shores Police Department just posted on their FB site, “It’s bad.”

    Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism says:

    @Quinerly: Oh, I’m in Raleigh and just waking up and catching up.

    I’m part of the “sleeps through the hurricane” cohort.

    Our share of this will come as part of the recovery, especially the emergency replacement of washed-out culverts. There’s gonna be more of that than we anticipated.

    AM in NC says:

    @Quinerly: Floyd was awful. I was at the UNC school of Pharmacy at the time, and it was all hands on deck (faculty, students, staff) collecting, examining, and shipping out donated unexpired medications to ship Down East because pharmacies were inundated and people were without medication for weeks.
    Florence’s 6 mph speed explains why we still have gotten basically nothing here in the Triangle so far. Except no school for the kiddos yesterday and today (grumble, grumble).

    And the cleanup and repair will be more expensive due to Trump’s tariffs.

    Evil_Paul says:

    It seems to me that Trump’s tweets plus the (non) reaction of Congress settles it: Puerto Rico needs Statehood.
    No taxation without representation. I seem to recall some guys sayin’ that back in the day.

    “I haven’t read the tweet, so I can’t comment.” This isn’t the Warren Commission Report, you fuckers, it’s 280 goddam characters! What a weak excuse, and even weaker that the media let this bullshit slip by.

    Uncle Cosmo says:

    “I’m not sure [Trump] knows Puerto Ricans are American citizens,” @HillaryClinton told @ZerlinaMaxwell in September following Hurricane Maria.

    And if anyone should slip that factoid into his thickwalled, vacuous skull, he would immediately have one of his hirelings prepare an Executive Order stripping them of their citizenship. (“Puerto Rico! You’re fired!) (“I like islands that don’t get in the way of hurricanes!”) Then explode in fury when told the Presidency lacks the power to do so.

    Pray (if that’s something you do) for his continued ignorance.

    SFAW says:


    And the cleanup and repair will be more expensive due to Trump’s tariffs.

    Which he was forced into assessing because Obummer and the Demon-rats inflated the number of deaths amount of the trade deficit with China or Canadia or Vanuatu or somewhere else. And her e-mails.

    Quinerly says:

    @AM in NC: This is going to be worse than Floyd, I fear. Florence moving slower than a walk. Refrigerators spotted floating down at least one street in New Bern.

    @Sister Rail Gun of Warm Humanitarianism: thanks for your posts. Be safe.

    Meanwhile down in Florida, Rick Scott is apparently doing yeoman’s work gaslighting displaced Puerto Ricans about all the great things that Republicans have done for them.

    SFAW says:

    The actions and comments of Ryan, Graham, McCarthy, McConnell, and the rest of the Party of Traitors make me wish for the South African solution, should the Dems take one or both Houses. Except instead of a “Truth and Reconciliation” commission, I want it to be “Truth and Retribution.”

    I imagine that makes me a bad/worse person.
