Trump Takes Credit for Global Airline Safety

January 02, 2018 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Yesterday, it was reported by several news agencies that the airline industry reported their safest year ever, with no fatal jet airline accidents anywhere in the world.  Among other commercial aircraft such as turboprops and cargo planes there were approximately 44 on planes and 33 on the ground, including 12 killed on December 31 in Costa Rica.  This is a remarkable achievement for commercial airlines, which have been steadily improving safety over a number of years.  The fatality rate for commercial airlines is .06, or 1 death per 16 million flights.

As we’ve come to expect, Trump took credit for the record, falsely claiming that he’s “been very strict” on global l commercial aviation in 2017 directly affecting the outcome.  This laughable lie provoked the response you would expect.  Here’s the tweet and some entertaining responses:

And delusion marches into 2018.

  1. Wow! When I turned on the tap in my kitchen today, water came out! Thanks President Trump!

  2. Now that I think about it, I haven’t lost a single shoe since inauguration. No comets, asteroids, or blue ice chunks have fallen from the sky in my neck of the woods. I haven’t been struck by lightning, and I haven’t been constipated either. Wow, I guess that’s what winning looks like. Thanks Donnie!
    But on the constipation issue, I tend to experience the opposite phenomena shortly after seeing your face or hearing your voice, Mr.(nnggck) President. So apparently you were right. I’m gettin purty tired of that sorta winnin.
    So just keep the blue ice on Jared’s desk and call it a win.

    TexasTrailerParkTrash, if non-potable water came oozing out of the tap, you’d be correct to thank Donnie and his regulation busting morons for that miracle.

    Speaking of miracles associated with the Dotard45 maladministration, it seems Zinke has been motoring about in helicopters using funds designated for fighting wildfires. California thanks that dumb can, too.

  4. Since this fool was declared the winner of the election, I have suffered chronic irritable bowel, headaches, nausea, memory loss, foul moods, reduction of pleasure in everyday activities such as reading the news, despair for the future, disrespect for 63 million fellow Americans, twitching eyelid, memory loss, insomnia, keyboard-shaped indentations on my forehead, shooting pains, gagging, depression, and memory loss. Thanks, Trump, you smug, lying POS.

  5. 2017 ushered in 2018 without a hitch. Not like all the trouble we had worrying about Y2K. Thanks for being real strict on the calendar thing President Trump!

    I hope Tuesday to Wednesday is just as good!

    I hear Hillary and Hume were on the same planet as Costa Rica. Shouldn’t Alex Jones investigate?

  7. Jane & PKM says:

    Rhea, glad to hear you are experiencing one of the relatively asymptomatic cases of the Donnie Doldrums. 63 million Americans voted for Donnie? Yikes. The opioid crisis is worse than has been reported.

  8. Lunargent says:

    The airplanes are doing fine.

    It’s the damn country that crashing and burning, piloted by Donnie “Danger” Drumpf.

  9. I think Rhea has perfectly summarized nearly one year of the Orange Whore deministration. I use a tablet so don’t have a separate keyboard, yet it’s been bad enough that I still have “keyboard-shaped indentations on my forehead.” That’s bad.

  10. We live inside 1604 in San Antonio, where my Jack Russell Terrier is proud to keep all bears out of the back yard, and by golly, I haven’t seen a bear out there since Smarty showed up!

    You know what is responsible for airline safely? REGULATIONS! The ones the administration is trying to kill for other industries and services as well. Good luck on those casualty numbers if they get their way.

    The sewer line out of my house has been clogged since Saturday, plumbers have tried and failed to clear it. So, thanks a drumpfload 45!
