My 2 Cents: Washington Post Editorial Calls out President Trump

When bad things happen, we always look for someone to blame, but who can you blame for Hurricane Florence heading toward the Carolinas?

Well, the Washington Post says you can blame President Trump partly. 

They put out an Editorial yesterday with the headline, "Another hurricane is about to batter out coast. Trump is complicit". 

They're blaming the potential flooding threat, that hasn't even happened yet, on climate change and President Trump. 

The Post Editorial Board wrote Wednesday, "Yet when it comes to extreme weather, Mr. Trump is complicit. He plays down humans' role in increasing the risks, and he continues to dismantle efforts to address those risks." 

If you take it to the Post's sensational extreme, and President Obama was still in office with his concern about climate change, that headline would read, "No hurricane's near the Carolina's thanks to President Obama." 

I get what the Washington Post is trying to imply with this piece, but petting it on Hurricane Florence seems like kind of a ridiculous excuse to bash the President again.
