A massive storm just struck the east coast, killing people. Why is the president leaving work?

I get tired of the double standards and hypocrisy. Why is Trump allowed to skip work, week after week?

This makes me angry.

1. Because he just doesn't care.

The people killed and made homeless are OTHER PEOPLE. Trump doesn't care about other people, only himself. It's no surprise. He is the antithesis of what a strong leader should be.

7. But why does the media give him a pass?

Constant whining about Obama's infrequent vacations. Silence about Trump's dereliction of duty.

29. Exactly! He's a sociopathic monster and the media for the most part does not give a damn.

And, he gets a free ride on taxpayer's money. The US is being ruled by a gangster family. I still think many citizens are still oblivious to WTF is going on. And most just can't seem to comprehend how much the republican party has changed. The republican party of today is a POX on America.

in their "moral" system. Only people with money and power are valued in the Republican system (just look at what they do). The common man is just like cattle, something to harvest more wealth from.

30. Americans, some, are ignorant and stupid, and frankly uneducated. ... know little of

history, and probably do not even know how government works. America is also less than 4% of the worlds' population and may be dumped to a far back seat as the rest of the world takes over.

Just the fact an ass like Trump is elected is very telling, and the creeps he surrounds himself with. Just the fact that congress sits on their ass is very telling. America is not a very impressive country anymore, and the world view of America sinks further all the time. Also, in world rankings, America continues to fall/fail.

America had a good run of it after WWII, but that is all ancient history now. I am hopeful America will eventually get back on the right track.

been fired or indicted.

He's alone with no friends. He's scared and he's miserable. He's an asshole. It's going to get worse.

13. He's been like this from the beginning. He golfs almost every week.

He's gone to one of his personal properties almost every weekend since he was elected. We the taxpayers pay his companies' exorbitant charges to house and feed his huge entourage, money that goes into his pocket.

It's disgusting. It's illegal - in violation of the emoluments clause - and the media says nothing.

But Obama's tan suit.

19. Republicans use him as a convenient front man stooge so that they can

Advance their anti humanity pro money agenda.
These vipers have shown their heartless soulless attitude towards real people for YEARS and this pathetic administration is in the middle of a perfect storm of indecency, misanthropic greed, hate, reality show media idiocy and total disregard for their fellow human beings. They will take down as many innocent citizens as they can before they are stopped.
Personally the Cretin is a total wretch of a human being. Always. Always has been always will be and we are stuck with him until someone finds the right means and guts to take him out of office.

Let's not just accept media complicity.

Eventually maybe we'll elect another Democratic president and the media will go right back to work whining about Dijon mustard and tan suits.

27. Thankfully for me, not life or death but

We have had no electricity for 26 hours. It is 46 degrees in my house and 39 degrees in my refrigerator. We are close to having to throw out and replace a lot of food. The fear is that if we open the door to cook the food, than we lose everything we don’t cook as the temp will go above 40 which is the point we have to throw everything out.

I wish I could go to Marlargo too.

Drove to McDonald’s for coffee and breakfast sandwiches, to warm up and to recharge the phone.

It is supposed to be about 40 so at least there is no worry about the pipes freezing. Hopefully the electricity comes back on before the food in the freezer thaws, then things get really expensive

41. Thanks , there are crazy little things

As many are with out power there is a long wait even for fast food. On the bright side, the 5 guys opened and my teenager and friends are on the way there. He will probably be out of the house for a good hour or two, so I can walk the dog and clean up a little.

Uncomfortable and inconvenient about sums it up. It is actually warmer outside so we have windows and the door on the side of the house that the wind is NOT coming from. Opened the sliding door and the wind blew an entire stack of napkins all over.

37. "Work" is the key word here.

Neither Trump or his children know how to work. Trump was given money and if he took one meeting per day that was it. Maybe hobnob at parties...stand in front of a camera and pontificate (WHY did the media always ask his opinion about political things??). But he NEVER had to go to the office from 9 to 5....much less 8am to 9pm like at my small business.

As we know his schedule is that of a retired billionaire. Our presidents have always aged before our eyes....I knew this one wouldn't let his hair or eyebrows go gray....but hell, he's barely breaking a sweat....AND he doesn't give a shit or worry like those that came before him.
