Words Without Meaning or End

Donald Trump claims he came to Texas and saw the “horror & devastation” firsthand.


Of course, he did not.

Not even close.

So, Sarah Huckabee Sanders explains how it is that Trump saw devastation firsthand.

He met with a number of state and local officials who are eating, sleeping, breathing the Harvey disaster. He talked extensively with the governor, who certainly is right in the midst of every bit of this, as well as the mayors from several of the local towns that were hit hardest. And detailed briefing information throughout the day yesterday talking to a lot of the people on the ground. That certainly is a firsthand account.

Okay, would somebody please tell me the definition of secondhand account because it got lost some damn place.

Objection.  Hearsay, your Honor.

The only thing Trump witnessed in Texas was our Governor and … wait, wait, I got it. ¬†Firsthand horror and devastation.

  1. A photo op – nothing more. Did he get his feet wet?

  2. Trump just automatically lies to make himself sound better and more important. It’s as natural to him as breathing. I wish he’d stop both of them.

  3. Wait, wait! I know the answer! We learned it in high school biology. Its Mitosis. Kind of like stuff flowing within an organism from one point to the other, usually in plant life. Which may mean that the Barking Yam is actually a plant! Yes, thats it!

  4. Objection overruled! It isn’t hearsay if you saw it on Fox or read it on Breitbart.

  5. What a jerk Trump is, after Mexico kindly offered help with this ongoing crisis (a couple of days ago) ignoramus in chief did not even have the grace to respond.
    Tillerson ended up thanking Mexico for the kind offer.

  6. Anna The Geek says:

    You know what he did witness first hand? A bunch of us, Austinites, protesting him! It was a beautiful, cool (for August), sunny day in Austin.

  7. Sam in St Paul says:

    ” I worked with a guy who was in the first wave of Omaha Beach so by Huckabee Sanders’ definition, I witnessed the horror and devastation of DDay firsthand.”

  8. Elizabeth2 says:

    “Mayors from several of the local towns that were hit hardest.” Seems to me that the town that was hit hardest was Houston, and I doubt that Sylvester Turner would be caught dead in the same room as Trump.

  9. Wait, my brother and husband were in the Vietnam war…therefore I know the horrors of war. My biography will of course include chapters about my experience at war. What a jerk! trump will never ‘get it’.

  10. Don Lowell says:

    Don’t forget he took the opportunity to peddle white hats.

  11. Question:
    When you have tiny hands, and you see things first hand, are you really able to grasp the enormity of the situation?

  12. mike in mo says:

    Right on, Rick!

  13. JAKvirginia says:

    Related: Trump now says he’s giving $1M to charity to help Texas. Uh huh. Must’ve done well with those $40 hats. Y’know, where I come from, you announce to the world what it is you’ve DONE, not what you’re “planning” on doing. And people with real class wait for the recipient to proclaim your generosity. Doing it yourself, beforehand? White trash tacky. Sigh.

  14. JAKvirginia says:

    Rick? Everything looks bigger in tiny hands. Everything. Ahem.

  15. What Elizabeth2 said.

  16. Jane & PKM says:


    2018 cannot come soon enough to rid ourselves of the national embarrassment and his crew of criminals. “Drain the Swamp”? Oh yeah, Special counsel Robert Mueller’s hand is coming closer to that plug every day. Giving 50/50 odds whether 2018 or Mueller take out the trash first.

  17. Craig Waters says:

    Dan Patrick has asked the president to be helpful and open up all of the Jade Helm concentration camps under the Walmarts. There is all kinds of infrastructure in the tunnels. Instead of Obama using them to imprison ‘real patriots’, Trump can use them to house ‘real patriots’.

  18. In Trump World, The Donald does all, sees all, wins all. He is not restricted by facts, truth or reality. His lies are based on his alternate reality.

  19. More and more celebrities and companies are giving money to Houston in the millions. Not a red cent from the so-called billionaire POTUS or his filthy rich minions.

  20. Marge Wood says:

    Take a deep breath. Trump is coming back to Texas. I figure he and Abbott are cooking up a deal to make a pile of money from Harvey. It’s just the way he works.

  21. Sam in St Paul says:

    @Maymoon Remember Trump said that avoiding STDs during Vietnam was the same as serving.

  22. Who doesn’t own boots? Really. It’s not as if they are lacking for closet space.
    They were not dressed to go to a flood zone. They went for a photo op.

    I hope people ask him about letting chemical plants relax their restrictions so they can ignite and blow up if they get flooded.

  23. So … my sainted father survived as a Marine non-com in the island hopping campaign of WWII, spent several months in SKorea in 1951 and retired with 28ish years in December, 1969 in Viet Nam. Thanks to Scarey Huckabee Sanders’ convoluted “logic”, what Sam in St Paul said.

  24. Tilphousia says:

    What a miserable jerk! Of course traitor trump lies whenever he opens his yap. Please please dear Lady Karma and bff Queen Nemesis, rid us of this cockwomble barking yam. NOW!

  25. That Other Jean says:

    Well, Trump insisted that those years in military school were just like being in the service. Maybe being in Austin and Corpus Christi were just like being in Houston and environs–except for the flooding and the casualties and the collapsed houses and the mud and the trapped people and the rescuers in boats and helicopters and all the homeless people in shelters, of course. Trump’s version of reality is not the same as everybody else’s.

  26. If I remember right Harris County was not Red when it came to electing the idiot. Since Houston is in Harris County that could be why he wouldn’t even do a fly-over and don’t forget he’s a germaphobe!!

  27. WA Skeptic says:

    I wouldn’t bet on that $1 Million until I actually see the check clear.
