President Trump

President Trump declared a state of emergency in Georgia after the southern part of the state took a direct hit from Hurricane Michael on Wednesday night.

The president is expected to visit Georgia to survey the damage next week.

The hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm when it reached Central Georgia after making landfall in Florida's panhandle on Wednesday evening.

An 11-year-old girl died when the storm tore through Southwest Georgia as a category 3 hurricane.

It took down trees and power lines all over Southwest Georgia, causing at least 127 accidents on Georgia's highways according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Utility crews are working to restore power to thousands of homes.

Atlanta was virtually unscathed by the storm.

    my question is this....why does he have to visit?? Just to fly over the state and say "yep, they need help"....can't he just send help beforehand?? I just pray for all of those hurt and who lost everything in this horrible storm....RIP to all lives lost.

  • n1kk1a

    Prayers going to Georgia.

  • Nikki

    All is well in Gwinnett county...I pray that all the Georgia roses are okay.

  • MsChocolate

    Just in time for the elections. I’m sure Kemp is excited.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Smh@'He plans to visit' Fa Wut?!?!

  • Waya Hedia

    Presidents visit natural disaster areas.

  • GAPeach

    I live in S. GA. We got a lot of rain yesterday (but honestly not more than any other storm), and I lost power about 5 times, for about 2 seconds each time. The sun is literally out right now. I'm not sure which areas were hard hit because I wasn't able to watch the news this morning. Hope all is well during his photo op.

  • Waya Hedia

    "can't he just send help beforehand??" You don't think FEMA and Red Cross do any preparation?

  • GAPeach

    This one also tosses paper towels as an added bonus.

  • Waya Hedia

    Um.. a hurricane just blew through. Would you rather he waited until after the elections?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Schools are closed and aint shit happened yet here today. They could have gone for half day. Like...???

  • Waya Hedia

    Gonna whine about that forever?

  • GAPeach

    Stating a simple fact is NOT whining. How long do you plan on bringing up Hillary and Obama? Fall back bish.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Fake Snow Days, Fake Hurricane Days #mentalhealthday, I love ATL.

  • MsChocolate

    I know what happened. His timing is great.

  • Waya Hedia

    Derp. Show me where I mentioned either here. You really shouldn't drink or smoke in the mornings.

  • Waya Hedia

    Holy crap. I can't believe this is real. PRESIDENTS VISIT DISASTER AREAS RIGHT AFTER THE DISASTER. For cryin' out loud.

  • Kayke

    And? His visit reverses the hurricane.... or are y’all in desperate need of water bottles and paper towels being thrown at you? It’s political and not out of the kindness of his heart.

  • Django the God

    You about your paper, huh...

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    That's exactly what it feels like. A photo op. I'm pretty sure Brian Kemp will be there too, so he can use video footage in his campaign ad saying he "stands with Trump". smh

  • iWasteTime

    Yes

  • Django the God

    He's going to sop it up with the toilet paper on his shoes and throw paper towels at n*ggas.

  • Waya Hedia

    "reverseds" lol. Yeah. so if he didn't go y'all would be whining about that. It is precious.

  • MookieFly

    See...yall on the east coast can keep all of that

  • GAPeach

    You asked me when we were going to stop bringing up the paper towels...as soon as you stop bringing up Hillary and Obama. I'm sure you do it regularly. You're literally going up and down this thread trying to argue EVERY comment.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Oh I am logged in from home. I missed mad days due to Florence so behind already. I aint got time for Mike lol

  • GAPeach

    I'm not gonna feed your troll ass anymore either. Only white people say "derp". Go find a white site to troll on.

  • ohdearme

    Oh hopefully he'll bring Melania and she wears her famous, "I don't care, do you" jacket.

  • iWasteTime

    I just want to know if he knows the difference between a state and a country. Is he going to the the State of Georgia or the country. When he was in Iowa, talking about Iowans was he in the country of Iowa or the state?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Didnt I ask your inbred self to scram last night?

  • Jethro

    Plans to visit next week

    For what, to go kayaking?

  • FukkFolks2018

    He could have STAYED HIS ASS AT HOME. He aint do SHIT when he came here after Flo except crack stupid ass JOKES. Fukk you and HIM

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/19/us/politics/trump-carolina-visit-hurricane.html

    "Where other presidents have treated natural disaster tours as dignified, even grave affairs, Mr. Trump has deployed sardonic humor, a candidate’s pep-rally enthusiasm and a real estate developer’s talent for always finding a silver lining. Occasionally, as when he tossed rolls of paper towels to storm victims in Puerto Rico last October, he has gone badly off-key."

  • the guest

    Appearances.

    And votes.

  • Kayke

    Lady, I’m from the islands and been in real hurricanes. Everything is a got damn “disaster” so dramatic. I’m sorry for the 2 lives lost... but there are still American territories where hundreds lost lives from a real
    Disaster, y’all forgot about instantly. Trumps visit does nothing in real life.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Me too. Love when they give us work-from-home days.

  • Yoni7

    Why? What happened? LOL

  • Yoni7

    Only white people say "derp".

    LMAOOOO FACTS!

  • Waya Hedia

    Unbelievable racist, low IQ little woman you are.

  • Waya Hedia

    So . ya can't show me where I mentioned either of them. I don't think about them at all. They're over.

  • Waya Hedia

    You're a bit unhinged. Cracks me up.

  • Waya Hedia

    Didn't I laugh in your face?

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I don’t know. How many states are there? I think Obama said 57.

  • Waya Hedia

    Doesn't matter to me. I have no idea why politicians show up after a disaster. I was just pointing out something you may have missed.

  • GAPeach

    Those facts got your panties in a bunch huh? White troll can't stand being revealed. If you think I'm a racist GOOD. I can definitely sleep at night with that. In fact, I'll sleep better.

  • GAPeach

    You've already revealed yourself YT

  • Waya Hedia

    not white. don't care what your problems are. relax, Sherlock.

  • Waya Hedia

    You're white aren't you?

  • GAPeach

    Then you WANT to be white. I got time today bitch. I told you to fall back, you choose not to. And I don't have problems, you do. You're stanning for a man that wouldn't piss on you if you were on fire. Arguing up and down a thread with EVERYONE that doesn't agree with you. It takes a person with true problems to do that.

  • Ryan

    The devil's coming down to Georgia. Y'all groupies can meet him skinnin' and grinnin' in your coon - I mean MAGA hats ?

  • Ryan

    The article's on Trump. Try to keep up or leave the grownups table.

  • Waya Hedia

    What kind of arrogance does it take for some munchkin to think they can tell people what to do? Let me know. Does it ever really work for you? No?

  • Waya Hedia

    Jeezuz.. learn to spell. You communicate like an angry cave dweller.

  • GAPeach

    Bitch, ask your president. He actually spoke for the entire country the other day. Like I said, I got time today.

  • GAPeach

    I spell absolutely fine. I'm also very educated. I speak with the passion that I feel, and vote accordingly. You type like someone that is desperate for acceptance from people that could care less about you. You are also trying to move on from the topic, and try to make me appear to be stupid because right now you FEEL stupid, and can't defend yourself against what I'm saying. It's a common tactic that is used by people that are far from intellectual. Now, unless you want to get back onto topic...go boil yourself a pack of hot dogs, grab a 6-pack of Budweiser, and pout.

  • GAPeach

    Why do you care if I'm white? Do you want to come to my house, peel off my skin, and place it on your wannabe ass?

  • FukkFolks2018

    He a damn it TRILL and wont get the hell on. Up here telling about his ancestors. I was like you forgot the part that your daddy and maternal uncle are the SAME PERSON

  • Jethro

    A constitutional law professor is allowed a slip of the tongue or two; tRump's an incompetent jackass.

  • BaybeK8s

    Trump's not visiting Ga until next week because he's got that hot lunch date today with Kanye?

  • Ozad

    Why Georgia and not Florida...Oh!! you got a black female running for governor he needs to take down...Trump rally in 3...2...1..

  • KLo

    that dumb cracker in the whitehouse

  • Judge Mental Will

    He constantly criticized Obama for working through hurricane sandy yet he did the same thing ? out campaigning. Not to mention his golfing. ?

  • Republican Dude

    No, we would rather he stood in the middle of the hurricane while it was at it's strongest!!!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Snicker...

  • stevetheque

    Why the f@ck did you put a ? mark behind No? You answered the ? hillbilly!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    A black man is running for governor of Florida.

  • Rahab

    He forgot the storm made landfill in Florida? He big mad at Gillum already!!!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I am glad you have time because I had to block that idiot hillbilly a long time ago because exchanging messages with him was driving up my blood pressure and making me feel emotions I didn't like.

  • Yoni7

    LMAOOOO What post were yall in where you told him to get the fukk on? LOL

  • stacee

    Campaign trip for Brian Kemp.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    Lmfaoooo

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Maybe the wing will fall off of Air Force1 and he'll be forced to keep his @zz at home.

  • GAPeach

    I'm happy I did too. We're off for the hurricane so I just decided to go ahead and engage. He needs to go wherever he is accepted.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    "YOU get paper towel! And YOU get paper towel! Hey, I like your short shirt...so YOU get 2 rolls!"

  • stevetheque

    Since you broached the question regarding arrogance, allow me a retort. I guess it's safe to assume that any person that that thinks they are Waya Hedia (Way ahead of you) would fit the bill!!

  • Logan Roberts

    Photo op ?

  • Waya Hedia

    oh that's just a joke name.. don't take any of this so seriously.

  • Waya Hedia

    Why would you care if I were white? You started that. Not me.

  • GAPeach

    I actually stated that you were white. It was clear, and evident, then you tried to state that you're not. If you're white, then I can understand your ignorance. If you're not, then I understand that you are self hating, and twice as ignorant. Hopefully it answers any questions that you have since you actually asked me if I was white. It wasn't the other way around clown.

  • Waya Hedia

    I love you folks like you try desperately to denigrate someone else with your stereotypes. It says a lot about you, actually. In your response here you took the time to appear educated but you slumped back into the sewer with your completely erroneous assumptions about who I am and what my character is. Now, there is no reason to attempt to convince you otherwise because, after all, this is just disqus and it isn't important. What I may be to you isn't something I am worried about. You're a very crass person who doesn't appear to be educated or considerate. When I do drink, it is 18 year old single malt scotch, I hate Budweiser and I loathe hot dogs. Unless they're from a NYC street vendor. For some reason.. maybe it is the mildew that makes them taste so good.
    The topic is a Presidential visit to a disaster zone. Not paper towels in Puerto Rico. If you do some research you will find out just how many billions of dollars went the PR. As well as some information about the mayor who, I believe, is still in jail. But, that's not today's topic.

  • GAPeach

    Do you actually think I'm about to read this novel? I can already tell it's full of nonsense, because that is ALL you have spouted all day. Take your "L" and move on. I'm done with you.

  • Waya Hedia

    Ignorance about what? Perhaps we should establish that I am not black either. I smell that nasty old racism thing here.

  • Ozad

    Trump has already been there disparaging Mayor Gillium

  • Waya Hedia

    Actually, I know you read it.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I'm not surprised but I am sure it will just motivate more blacks to go to the polls.

  • GAPeach

    Bitch you wish.

  • Carla
  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Are you fellow Rose's ok? Just checkin on you all cause I know a lot of y'all in here are in the areas that got hit. Hope you all are ok..

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    Glad you are ok over there.

  • Waya Hedia

    Abmit it. U read it.?

  • Allihave2say

    I wondered the same thing.
