Hurricane Irma continues to slowly turn along the Florida West Coast bringing destruction and flooding in what has been an incredible week of storms in an epic Atlantic Hurricane season, What continues to shock me is how a climate denying Governor who banned the use of the word Climate change from official Florida government websites, can look so professional dealing with a climate change produced storm? Oh, wait.. Florida, asked and answered counselor. Even in the midst of insane weather where three 100 mph storms stretched across the Atlantic and Gulf like from an Apocalypse movie, the political world continued as Trump told Dreamers brought here up to two decades ago and saved by President Obama under DACA kids they were about to be deported in six months, used like bargaining chips for funds to build the border wall.
You know that sounds almost like the effort by UK PM Theresa May… the government’s plan to apparently use the EU resident’s ‘right to remain’ to wring out a better Brexit trade deal sounds very similar… Well she and Trump are besties…
