Sometimes you have to shake your head. Hurricane Florence hasn't made landfall yet, but the Washington Post has already pinned the blame for it on Trump:

The editorial board of the Washington Post has declared that President Trump is “complicit” for Hurricane Florence because of his views on climate change.

The massive storm has not made landfall yet, but the Post published a column on Wednesday headlined, “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.” The piece also notes that Trump has given “good advice” when issuing hurricane warnings via his Twitter feed before it launched an attack on the president.

“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,” the editorial board wrote.

Billionaire Jeff Bezos’ paper then quotes a climate researcher who said that previous hurricanes would not have produced so much rain without “human-induced climate change” and Florence is another indication of global warming.

Because there were no hurricanes before Trump and obama stopped the rise of the oceans, you know, as he was able to stop hurricanes with his mind alone.

La Cucaracha also slammed Trump:

Democratic Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez, appearing on “All In” with Chris Hayes on MSNBC Tuesday night, said Trump is not “prepared” for Florence.

“You know what I fear, is the calamity, because of the lack of coordination of the government, with the National Guard, and with local government,” Gutierrez said. “The lack of responsiveness and preparedness of this government, because the president wants to find out who was the one that wrote that op-ed piece about the chaos in the White House.”

“You know what I fear, is the calamity, because of the lack of coordination of the government, with the National Guard, and with local government,” Gutierrez said. “The lack of responsiveness and preparedness of this government, because the president wants to find out who was the one that wrote that op-ed piece about the chaos in the White House.”

On the other hand, the economy thunders on and poverty is down:
Middle-class income rose to the highest recorded levels in 2017 and the national poverty rate declined as the benefits of the strong economy lifted the fortunes of more Americans, the U.S. Census reported Wednesday.

The median U.S. household earned $61,372 last year, meaning half of the families in the country brought in more income than this and half earned less.

Crossing the $61,000 mark signals the American middle-class may have finally earned more than it did in 1999, although the Census Bureau cautions that median income last year was not statistically different from 1999 or 2007. A change in methodology in 2013 makes precise comparisons difficult. All the income figures have been adjusted for inflation and are reported in 2017 dollars.

Middle-class household income has been rising steadily in recent years as the economy has rebounded from the deep recession and millions of Americans have found jobs again. The extra pay from having another person in the home working again or working additional hours is the largest factor contributing to rising income.

"We’re continuing to see a shift from part-time to full-time work, so some of that could explain an increase in income,” said Trudi Renwick, an assistant division chief at Census Bureau.

The Census Bureau also reported that the U.S. poverty rate declined modestly to 12.3 percent, the lowest level in years and a sign the economic devastation from the Great Recession is subsiding.

Business creation is at a record high:
Now, one of the things that I can remember at the American Enterprise Institute talking a lot about before I came in here was the fact that entrepreneurship in America was falling off. And one of the ways we can measure entrepreneurship is that, if you start a new business, that you have to apply for an ID number — a tax ID number — for your business.

The government has been tracking these data since the third quarter of 2004, and the recent trend is striking. The 876,201 new business applications in the second quarter of 2018 were the most ever recorded. In fact, the totals for each of the six quarters in which Donald Trump has been in the White House are higher than for each of the quarters from the start of the series through the end of 2016. The quarterly total in the pre-Trump era had never reached 800,000 and the U.S. has now been fortunate enough to exceed that total for three straight quarters. There’s no guarantee that Mr. Trump won’t describe such results inaccurately on Twitter. Regardless, the results are better than they have ever been.

barack obama, along with the left wing media, tried to wrestle credit for the economy from Trump, but Trump was having none of it:

It appears that President Trump may just be responsible for the downgrade from CAT 4 to CAT 2. Jesse covers this at about 3:44 in the video. A similar thing happened to the eye of the hurricane that recently hit Hawaii.

Who would have thought to pin all of the hurricanes during the 0bama regime on the Marxist Muslim mulatto?

I
Can turn the gray sky blue
I can make it rain, whenever I want it to, oh I
I can build a castle from a single grain of sand
I can make a ship sail, on dry land tell ‘em yeah
But my life is incomplete and I’m so blue
‘Cause I can’t get next to you
I can’t get next to you, babe (next to you)
I can’t get next to you (I just can’t get next you)
I can’t get next to you, babe
I can’t get next to you
I
Can fly like a bird in the sky
Hey, and I can buy anything that money can buy
Oh, I
I can turn a river into a raging fire
I can live forever if I so desired
Unimportant are all the things I can do
‘Cause I can’t get next to you
I can’t get next to you, babe (no matter what I do)
I can’t get next to you
Uh-ya
Ooo-ooo
Ooo-ooo
Chica boom, chica boom
Chica boom, boom, boom
I can turn back the hands of time, you better believe I can
I can make the seasons change, just by waving my hand
Oh, I
I can change anything from old to new
The things I want to do the most, I’m unable to do
Unhappy am I with all the powers I possess
‘Cause girl you’re the key to my happiness
And I
Can’t get next to you
Girl, you’re blowing my mind ‘cause I can’t get (next to you)
Can’t you see these tears I’m crying? I can’t get (next to you)
Girl, it’s you that I need, I gotta get (next to you)
Can’t you see these tears I’m crying? I can’t get (next to you)
I, I, I, I, I can’t get (next to you)
I, I, I, I, I can’t get (next to you)
Girl, you’re blowing my mind

I hear that Hussein and Hillary could be held responsible. Once the hurricane hits real America, it’ll take a sharp left turn and weaken dramatically.

Even worse - an article on Yahoo Finance claims that the hurricane costs will be exacerbated due to Trump’s trade wars....
