President Trump on Monday said he announced his pardon of former Maricopa County, Ariz., Sheriff Joe Arpaio as Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas because he “assumed the ratings would be far higher.”

“In the middle of a hurricane, even though it was a Friday evening, I assumed the ratings would be far higher than they would be normally,” Trump said during a press conference with Finnish President Sauli Niinistö. “You know, the hurricane was just starting.”

That is completely insane. It really is a TV show to him.


Someone had to enforce the laws.  Obama was more interested in violating the constitution and trying to provide legal status for millions of illegals.  People upset about this but remained silent or actively supported DACA don't have my credibility in my eyes.  Send them all back home.  Respect our laws like they demand we respect theirs.

PAsnow was right. I found it bizarre that his main focus is on how much ratings these issues are getting. That shouldn't even be a factor regarding the sheriff or the hurricane.


Does he not have people around him telling him how inappropriate it is to be boasting about crowds in the middle of a flood?

I really don't get it.

During a natural disaster, a president has to be incredibly incompetent to screw up words of encouragement. I'm not saying this to be ugly, I honestly don't think he knows how to be empathetic. It's not in his DNA. He's not going to be hugging anyone, or comforting anyone. Obama was really good at that stuff. W. was an incredibly emotional guy. It was the first time I saw a president cry in public. Trump just doesn't know how. He can say something completely inappropriate, and not even understand what was wrong with it.

I'm so glad Trump's campaign rally in Houston was still successful despite the city being destroyed.

He's a narcassist that's why.  I didn't agree with W (policy wise) but I got the impression that he cared for people less fortunate than him.  Same with Obama.

Trump has also got the temperament and attention span of a five year old which doesn't help.

The experiment failed.

After we endure this, we get the same thing from the other side.....The Rock.
