Donald Trump Finding New And Exciting Ways To Be Ridiculous About Hurricane Sandy

  this is the greatest classiest trump post

Science factFirst things first: the lady yelling at Chuck Schumer in the Fox & Friends video below is AMAZING, and obviously did the “Jill” voiceover for the Adam Sandler masterpiece Jack and an Unfortunate Appearance by Al Pacino. Second things second: Noted philanthropist Donald Trump is always good to have around to explain that why would you put Hurricane Sandy into some kind of idiotic “global warming” context when it is COLD in New York right now? He has obviously never seen the John Cusack nature documentary The Day After Tomorrow!

Note the braintrust nodding sagely along. That is because everybody knows snow disproves human-made climate change, which is why Matt Drudge almost murdered himself with laughter when it snowed in Copenhagen, in December, during a climate change conference. Science fact!

    "People are P.O.'d" Just wait until tomorrow when people are going to be B.O.'d. Yes, we can again!

    It's going to be a busy night tomorrow, drinking, watching the election results, live blogging, sexting Nate Silver.

  2. Living in Joy

    If it wasn't before, it's clearly plain now – these people have never cracked open a history book.

    Addressing climate change means suburbanites might have to pay a bit more for gas for their SUVs. This is INTOLERABLE!!!!1!!1

    But America's premiere climate scientist, Donald Trump, MBA, says it's cold out now, so what's the problem?

      1. Lot_49

        If only Newt would reveal his secret plan to reduce the price of gas to $2/gallon! It's probably on the shelf next to Nixon's secret plan to end the Vietnam War, and Mittens' 1999-2009 tax returns.

  4. BaldarTFlagass

    Looking at the freeze frame on the video there, I am put in mind of the scene where the Science committee goes all "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" in the original Planet of the Apes movie.

  5. Terry

    So, why doesn't Trump use some of his resources to bring in generators and gasoline? Wouldn't that be a great demo of Romney's plan to outsource disaster response to private industry?

    1. Lot_49

      Trump Brand© ® Electricity…the classiest on the market, and available now for $1.50 per kilowatt-hour.

      1. actor212

        It's world class 'lectricity, runs faster than anyone else's electricity and is more powerful.

        BTW, $1.50 a kwh is pretty much market price in NYC :-)

    1. Whollyholeyholy

      Yes, these people have the same grasp of climate science that my indoor cats do of the weather.

  6. spends2much

    GO VOTE!!!! And remember, Donald, the polls for "rich" job creators like yourself open on Wednesday, November 7.

    1. sewollef

      You're a chancer…. I like chancers and I like your style.

      I wish you luck in your endeavour of fucking with Donnie's head. I think it just might work.

  7. FlownOver

    Becks:

    I know it's Monday, and all the clocks are still (or newly) set wrong, but just pulling up the "DONALD TRUMP FINDING NEW AND EXCITING WAYS TO BE RIDICULOUS ABOUT…" standing headline is a little – shall we say – lacking in motivation.

    1. Redgyal

      Would you have preferred a post on the hidden psychological reasons for Mittens perennial distaste of the poors? Or maybe just a story on doggies? Because that's what I really wanted.

  8. FakaktaSouth

    That lady telling Chuck "We're gonna die if we get killed by the weather" is the most reasonable, true thing in the entire deal here. IT'S REALLY COLD, so an increase in AVERAGE TEMPERATURE and MONSTER storms lose all meaning, force, and consequence, of course.

    1. actor212

      When I first saw that video, I really wanted to smack that broad.

      a) No one told you to stay in your fucking home when an evacuation was declared for your entire fucking neighborhood. I can understand being upset and scared but if it's cold, there are fucking shelters all over the city and plenty of good samaritans willing and able to drive you. Which brings me to point number two.

      b) It's clear why this woman has no friends or family. She's alienated every single one of them with her whining.

    2. freakishlywrong

      It should be noted that Staten Island is politically like Alabama. So, you send teatards to congress, who vote to cut FEMA, and then bitch when FEMA isn't fast enough. And she'll vote for them tomorrow as well.

  9. BaldarTFlagass

    "I happen to know the leading member of the United States Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works and even he says there is no such thing as global warming! You know, Jim Inhofe!!"

  10. elviouslyqueer

    The only global warming with which Trump is familiar is the hot air exhaled from his fat, stupid, gerbil-poop encrusted yap.

    1. NellCote71

      "Gerbil-poop encrusted yap." Thank you. I have been searching for years to describe that mouth of his. I always thought his lips were permanently chapped, from flapping all the time in the wind. But I think you are on to something.

    Next On Fox News: Does "Gravity" Really Exist? We'll Talk To Noted Physicist Rush Limbaugh For The Truth

    1. FNMA

      This "gravity" you speak of is just a theory. Teach the controversy!

      Gravity is God's way of telling you you've had too much tequila.

    2. NellCote71

      Rush should know gravity, from all sorts of perspectives, if you get my drift. Or at least from the perspective of DR rent boys.

    1. Rotundo_

      The definition of danger to himself and/or society is pretty loosely interpreted. Now if one could be committed for being an asshole, The Donald and a host of folks would be in rubber suites with views.

  12. glasspusher

    Ever hear of the expression "too cold to snow"? If the temp gets way below freezing, the atmosphere can't hold enough moisture to give you a decent snowfall, which is why in some historically ice-boxy places in the world, snowfall is actually up as their average winter temperatures are rising.

      1. glasspusher

        Guilty. Oh, one thing I forgot to mention, there are cases where it can be 0F and snow like gangbusters- lake effect snow, like I saw when I was in grad school in Cleveland. Killer cold air picking up moisture over warm Lake Erie. See also: Buffalo, NY. Late in the season, Lake Erie often freezes over, thus stopping the lake effect snow.

        1. BerkeleyBear

          Yep, that lake effect is something else. Grand Haven Michigan in winter gets multiple foot dumps regularly, and there's nothing much you can do about it (if you don't have a snowblower or plow) but hope it warms up to where the de-icer starts working.

          1. glasspusher

            Yeah, but I found that for less than 5 inches, that lake effect stuff was so fluffy light you could brush it off with a feather, as long as you didn't try to heat the car up first.Of course, out by us, I see snow up at my place on Skyline about once every two years, and if it sticks, it lasts for less than a day an less than an inch. Thank goodness for the Sierras, I still loves me snow…

        2. viennawoods13

          Yeah, here on the north shore of Lake Erie, we get a light dusting, and see Erie and Buffalo get whomped regularly.

      1. glasspusher

        I woke to 3 inches of snow on my car when visiting Flagstaff Arizona a few years back in April! Elevation, what, 7000 feet? Oh noes!

          1. glasspusher

            I try to avoid it at all costs. My SO has some family there, 48 hours there was enough to last me several lifetimes, but I've been back briefly since. I have a friend up here who has in laws there, and he feels the same way….

          2. yyyaz

            *Sigh*…. the jerb creators who hold the rights to run a ski resort on the Peaks have succeeded in their efforts to make snow from treated effluent. This, after decades of fighting with every Native American tribe in the area and the "native" white-eyes here. So 10 more ski bums will get part-time work with no benefits, and the city streets are clogged with 10,000 more idiots from Scottsdale and ASU every weekend, none of whom has an effing clue about how to drive in the snow. </s>

        1. GunToting[Redacted]

          We live in Prescott (5,300 feet at my driveway). We get maybe 2-3 significant snowfall events per year, usually in March. We get anywhere from 12" to 30" in one dump, and then it's usually gone in 3 days.

      1. glasspusher

        Hah! I lived there for my one failed year of college, RIT. Went out one night to the dining commons, it was -19F, took in a nice, deep breath of cold air, froze the blood vessels in my nose and gave myself one of the worst nosebleeds I've ever had.Ah, memories…

  13. friendlyskies

    It's so important for society to see a group of accomplished climatologists on televisions discussing climate change, particularly in the wake of an extreme weather event like Hurricane Sandy. Kudos, FOXNews, for broadcasting commentary from the people who matter.

    1. Allmighty_Manos

      No you don't. Unless you want to hear about Obama stealing the election, let's impeach Obama over Beghazi etc.

  14. glasspusher

    It's a lot easier to know the climate of a region than the weather there a month from now. If it wasn't, people wouldn't move to Florida and Arizona for the warm weather, or in the case of Arizona, for the stupidity.

      1. glasspusher

        Yeah, I was there for 20 months, 10 years ago, just north of Tampa. One of my former neighbors called us “the nicest democrats she ever met”Go Palm Beach! Fuck the Redneck Riviera!

  15. Texan_Bulldog

    SNL does this show much better than these guys. They are reaching 'the Onion is reality' proportions.

  16. TootsStansbury

    What exactly is the point trying to be made here? Seriously, I broke a personal rule and watched the clip. Are they trying to manufacture a "Katrina" for President Obama? Then they bring out the it's cold out so no such thing as global warming canard. A buffet of lies and stupid.

    1. Redgyal

      Yes on the Katrina thing. They even said it. So if he wins that will be the story until Inauguration Day.

    2. natl_[redacted]_cmdr

      Yes. They are trying so hard to make this a Katrina and then throwing various crap at the walls to see what sticks.

  17. redarmyzombie

    Fuck you, Trump. Over here, in fucking California, It's been reeeallly fucking hot this entire fucking time. If it's so cold, howzabout you remedy the problem by bending over and shoving a curling iron up your fucking shit-twat ass!

    sorry guys…History+Algebra+Insomnia=Grumpy…

  18. glasspusher

    The joke amongst meteorologists/climatologists is: climate is what you expect, weather is what you get instead.

    1. redarmyzombie

      Hopefully, he'll come town with a terminal case of diarrhea.

      …*sigh* With votes, yada, yada…

      1. Rotundo_

        And I will bet that the photos will be all over the papers, with The Donald keeled over with PJ's around ankles and toupee still firmly double-sticky-taped to his head. Much laughter and delight will be had.

      2. viennawoods13

        You read Game of Thrones? There's a hell of death on the crapper in there. It would work with Trump- oh yeah.

  19. editor

    you have to be as brilliant as trump to understand that long-term climate change, and the weather on any given day are EXACTLY the same thing.

  20. glasspusher

    I am really glad I work in a field where no random dumbass can walk outside and get an incorrect opinion on what I'm measuring.

  21. freakishlywrong

    A Uuuuge delusional asshole. Why couldn't he have spent the storm in one of his shitty casinos?

  22. FNMA

    I'm concerned that that thing on Donald Trump's head is feeding on his brain. And starving. I mean, look at the poor thing…

      You forgot, "and everybody has a share."

      I forget, who is "everybody" comprised of.
      Meanwhile, I will have one of each, plz. Not because brand loyalty but because, gizmo's and stocking stuffers, it is the American way.

  24. oenspiek

    The energy for a storm like Sandy comes from rainbow pony farts, not this quasi-pagan 'global warming' nonsense.

  25. Aridzona

    If you're listening to Donald Trump and find that you have an erection that lasts more than four hours, contact your physician immediately.

    Staten Island : New York City :: Alabama : United States.

    I can guaran-damn-tee you that broad was screaming at the TeeVee in 2005 about the "dumb Nearers who didn't evacuate New Orleans" after Katrina," and is a loyal FOX News viewer.

    Fuck her and the global-warming Hummer she drove in on. We'll get to her when we get to her.

    1. FakaktaSouth

      huh. so when I am hanging out in the VERY COLD Hinterlands of the Global Warming Disproving North, I would NOT want to waste my time on Staten Island? You wanna talk about PISSED? I am NOT going a thousand miles to not be able to understand what the crazy racists are even saying. I can do that here in 3 seconds (I kinda really like the accent, but I truly can't make out a lot of the words).

      1. actor212

        Some parts of Staten Island are really quite lovely, and those are the ones up on the hill.

        The bits that got flooded have necks redder than tomatoes. Also, city trash dumps. Too.

          1. sewollef

            Two or three month ago, I was filling up my car with gas in my nabe in Brooklyn, when in rolled this pimped-up Cadillac Escalade piece of shit and out popped a classic Italian fat fuck, slicked back hair, wearing a track suit, chains and with a cigar jammed in his yap that he didn't put out even though he was gasing his tank.

            I was fascinated. He paid at the little booth on the forecourt by pulling out of his tracksuit pocket the fattest roll of bills I've ever seen.

            He paid and drove off heading straight for the Verrazano Bridge and back to Staten island.

      2. prommie

        You will not need a translator, northren racists are quite clearly racist. There is no damn reason to ever ever go to Staten Island anyway except for the one exception of transiting it for the sole reason of riding the Staten Island Ferry which is the greatest free sightseeing tour and fun thing to do that I love. I cannot wait to take you with me next time!

  27. DrunkIrishman

    Nothing like playing a five day old video to show the current situation of the events there! I mean, no way could things have changed between Thursday and Monday … right?

  28. widestanceromance

    I'd LOVE to think that the wicked stench of all these self-appointed pundits would blow away after tomorrow, but they're already signing deals for their next book about how Obama commanded the elements to create the most liberal, freedom-destroying hurricane ever.

  29. Whollyholeyholy

    The fact that a tropical storm of such magnitude as to cause blizzard conditions in Appalachia is evidence that the temperatures aren't rising. Am I following this right? It's giving me a headache. Grrrr. And brrr.

  30. Incitefully_Joe

    Once again, global warming doesn't exist because it is almost seasonably cold in november. Nevermind that on October 29th, it still inexplicably was short-sleeves weather, and that between October 29th and today, there was that pesky Worst Hurricane To Hit The Northeast In A Generation, and that Hurricanes rely on warm water in order to maintain strength so there is LITERALLY no way they can wander this far north unless the Atlantic is very warm.

    All that matters is, it's (almost) seasonably cold at this one point in late autumn, therefore global warming is a hoax, because the Bible. QED.

    1. Jukesgrrl

      Dynel doesn't turn gray.

      From the dBay "vintage" guide: "Dynel: Dynel is an animal product and looks like mohair but is not as dense. It is awful to comb and will not hold a curl. It was generally used on "budget" dolls such as Royal Company, Marilu, Unmarked dolls, Imperial, Eegee, and some Made in USA dolls. Effanbee also used dynel wigs on some of their "Honey" dolls. Check out the Honey Tintair, it is pretty but when combed tends to look rather unkept. Artisan's Raving Beauty also utilized the dynel wig, but was also offered in saran. The wigs came in various shades of brown and blonde, and are soft to the touch. The budget dynel wigs typically will have a seam in the back of the head near the bottom. The dynel wigs tend to not be as "thick" as mohair and the other materials. It is common to find a played-with doll with "bald spots" in the back because there was never a lot of hair there to begin with. It is a difficult wig material because it does not comb nor does it curl. It has no shine, so tends to have a dull appearance.

  31. Limeylizzie

    It's not that cold here, I am off to the gym and have on my regular light hoodie and sweat pants, get a grip wimpy lady with the quavering , hideous voice.

    Whats the problem? The Donald owns LOTS of properties. Why doesn't he put them up so they don't die?…or does he think they should wait for FEMA like the rest of the 47%?

  37. ttommyunger

    Waiting for Colbert to coin another term for the American Lexicon: "To Trump" 1-To fart loudly with a disconcerting amount of moisture. 2- To propound a completely insane position on any matter inconsistent with history, fact or logic.
