Trump's Memory Hole, and More

FEMA is scrubbing anything that makes Trump look bad:
Key details about the availability of electricity and water in Puerto Rico as they continue to recover in the wake of Hurricane Maria have been scrubbed from the FEMA website where more positive statistics on federal response still remain.
At this point, only a fool would believe anything that comes out the Trump Administration.

UPDATE: The stats are back. But Trump still thinks he's doing well, since he's only heard from sycophants.
This is like hiring OJ to run a domestic violence shelter:
President* Trump on Thursday nominated Andrew R. Wheeler, a coal lobbyist with links to outspoken deniers of established science on climate change, to help lead the Environmental Protection Agency.
Just Another Coal Whore who believes that clean air and water are so overrated. If they had their way, they'd mandate the reinstallation of residential coal furnaces. Next up will be putting lead back into motor fuel and oil-based paints.

At this point, they might was well change the name to the Environmental Pollution Agency.
You might recall how Trump's been loudly taking credit for job increases since before he was inaugurated. So it'll be interesting to see how Herr Trumfenprahlhans spins this one: The economy lost 33,000 jobs last month.
From the MAGA files:
Just 24 percent of Americans believe the country is heading in the right direction after a tumultuous stretch for President* Donald Trump that included the threat of war with North Korea, stormy complaints about hurricane relief and Trump’s equivocating about white supremacists. That’s a 10-point drop since June, according to a poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

The decline in optimism about the nation’s trajectory is particularly pronounced among Republicans. In June, 60 percent of Republicans said the country was headed in the right direction; now it’s just 44 percent.

If it weren't so sad, those job numbers would be funny. All this time 'the Cheetolini' has taken credit for Obama era job and economy numbers. Now his own numbers are in, and of course it's a Major Fail. I can only imagine how these numbers will somehow become President Obama's fault.
