Hurricane Michael just roared ashore in the Florida panhandle with sustained winds at 155 MPH. Trump and his droopier-than-usual ‘do held a press availability to demonstrate that he can watch a radar blob cross a screen and utter inanities about it. A reporter asked if Trump would cancel his MAGA circle jerk in PA tonight to monitor the situation in Florida:
A tired-sounding Trump says he's not planning to cancel his campaign rally in Pennsylvania tonight despite the storm because "there are thousands of people already lined up… we have thousands of people going tonight, and many are there already… it's sorta unfair to them." pic.twitter.com/AlsY57t4KG

“Not my president” became a popular rallying cry in the days after Trump was sleazed into office. While certainly an understandable sentiment, it’s inaccurate in a sense because, thanks to the slaver vestigial Electoral College, voter suppression and foreign interference, Trump is technically the President of the United States.
But as he’s demonstrated time and time again, Trump considers citizens who don’t support him (the majority!) as enemies, not constituents. He rails against “angry mobs” that are in fact patriotic citizens exercising their right to peaceably assemble and express themselves. And he’d rather go jerk off with a bunch of slack-jawed cultists in Pennsylvania than show respect for the citizens in mortal peril in Florida.
So yeah, not my president.
