Surly,

MASSIVE GLACIER COLLAPSE Caught on Camera! (Ilulissat, Greenland)
73,093 views

Licet Studios
Published on Aug 23, 2019

Icebergs breaking from the Ilulissat Glacier are often up to 3,000 feet in height (1 km) and thus too tall to float down the fjord and lie stuck on the bottom of its shallower areas, sometimes for years, until they are broken up by the force of the glacier and icebergs further up the fjord.
Ilulissat Icefjord drains 6.5% of the Greenland ice sheet and produces around 10% of all Greenland icebergs. Some 35 billion tonnes of icebergs calve off and pass out of the fjord every year. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jakobsh...)

The glacier calving event has been filmed by Bo Baake.

Trump admin pulling millions from FEMA disaster relief to send to southern border - Strengthening Hurricane Dorian is a growing threat to Florida Labor Day weekend

Considering the above, it will be interesting to see how Trumpy 🦀 all of a sudden wants FEMA disaster relief funds made available to keep all those Republican Trumpers in Florida happy after Hurricane Dorian cleans their Global Warming Denier clock.

And let us not forget Bankruptcty King's 🦀 Mar a Lago GIANT emoluments sucking sponge. Any Hurricane "damages" will be computed using Trump's famous math. The only difference now is that it won't be through accounting fraud for the purpose of dodging taxes, but simply through accounting fraud to get you Trumpers (and the rest of we-the-taxpayers) to pay FOUR or FIVE times the actual cost of the repairs, PLUS cover any increase in Hurricane insurance premiums for the next DECADE or so.

Don't worry about the one your god (i.e. 😈) chose, Trumpers; our "money miracle working" dear leader will find a way to make more PERSONAL profits (off the taxpayer dime ) out of YOUR MISERY, you stupid "My God is a good God" pseudo-Christian IDIOTS.

Trumpo's despicable "let them eat cake" moment.

Isaac Peres 👍
One of the most despicable and insensitive things I have witnessed in 60 years of watching the American political scene was when that colossal orange POS was throwing rolls of glorified napkins at Puerto Rican citizens fighting biblical level floods from Hurricane Maria. It was Trumpo's "let them eat cake" moment.

It would ironic indeed if this weekend's hurricane mowed down that gaudy, overpriced, golden toilet in Palm Beach that he calls "Mar-a-Lago".
