He already has said all the right things about this hurricane, taking the lead of Governors McMaster and Cooper. Now he should follow up by doing the right thing and fund FEMA so they can do their job properly. Maybe taking some money back from ICE to rebuild Puerto Rico would be a good start.

Fake news Media on maximum outrage alert over the $10 M intra agency transfer of funds (which happens all the time). 

Im not a whiz at math, but by my calculations a grand total of 6/100 of ONE PERCENT of FEMAs $15,000,000,000 budget was trandferred to ICE. (correct me if im worng....I dont have a calculator)

I watched Joe and Mika on MSNBC lose their shit over this earlier today and its been all over the news.

 I had to do my own research to find out that such transfers are actually commonplace within Governmental Agencies, and I also had to do my own research to find out what FEMAs budget is relative to the $10,000,000 transferred


Is it any wonder people have given up believing a fvckin word they hear on TV

Really?

Here is an NPR article that mentions the total FEMA budget.

https://www.npr.org/2018/09/12/647021316/trump-administration-transferred-9-8-million-from-fema-to-ice

Here is a CNN article that mentions the "reprogramming" of funding that has happened between different DHS departments over multiple years.

Trump this morning calling the 3K death toll from Puerto Rico a Democratic hoax.

There are no words for what a disgusting, contemptible, sorry excuse for a human being he is.

Your words not mine.

I would say itís incomplete information, lacking any context or perspective which is being used to drive a false narrative.


I imagine such transfers also took place under the Obama Administration as it seems to be a common practise. I dont remember seeing any headline and fomenting about that

Whitey:
The Trump White House moved $10 million from FEMA budget and another 29 million from the Coast Guard to fund incarcerating immigrant families..... which part of that is confusing. Yet you continue to obfuscate and pull false equivalence out of your a$$.

They implied that it was significant (6/100 of 1%) unprecedented (happens all the time) and that it somehow would hinder the relief efforts of the impending disaster.

All complete bvllshit and a brazen effort to intentionally mislead people

White, it has taken them a while but it seems as if the opposition has taken a leaf out of your teams book.

The sooner this whole nutjobs in the wings runming the show phase of US politics is over and there is a return to the center, and the well being of the American people is at the heart of anyone electable's strategy the better.

I think we are a bit short of that for now, and with the continuing tweets and press statements coming from 1600 Pennsylvania avenue making me year for the much more believable days of Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf.

On the bright side, in the long run, we are all dead...
Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity

Iím sick to fvckin death of the lot of them......thatís why I supported Bernie in 2016.

At least he calls it as he sees it. I disagree with him more than I agree with him but his intentions and agenda was rock solid

I also see the NY Times had to do a walk back on a disgraceful Nikki Haley ďhit jobĒ. The only problem is that the curtains were ordered by the Obama administration in 2016. A blatant and disgraceful attempt to smear one of he few decent people Trump has working for him

They issued a correction, as they should have.

Iíd agree Haley is intelligent and appears to have a hell of a lot more integrity and principles than the rest of them.

However, extravagant spending and abuse of taxpayer money has kind of been a theme of Trumpís cabinet. Zinke, Price, Pruitt, Mnuchin, and the FEMA lad this week, off the top of my head.
