Wow, you would think that in the middle of a disaster, people might put aside politics.

But you would be wrong at least for some people.

The Independent ran a piece claiming that “Florida residents” call on President Donald Trump to open Mar-a-Lago, his estate in Palm Beach as a shelter.

Michael Moore also tweeted this out:

Many others tweeted memes or versions of the Independent’s story asking how dare Trump have turned people down?

Except none of it was true.

“Florida residents” were not calling on Trump to get into Mar-a-Lago, because it’s been under a mandatory evacuation order and is likely in great danger of getting hit by the storm. It’s on a barrier island perched right on the ocean on one side and the intracostal on the other.

No responsible government agency would advise people to go there. Nor are any Florida residents, who actually know where it is, clamoring to get in at this moment.

Yet, the Independent article is being cited all over social media and internationally, even ‘MetroNigeria.’ It’s also been picked up to and reprinted by Yahoo, despite the fact that they ran an article on Friday about how it was under mandatory evacuation.

At what point do these ‘journalists’ actually bother to even check out the stories they are pushing?

No need to respond, it was just a rhetorical question.

And this is with some liberals wishing that Mar-a-Lago is wiped out.

Which seems inconsistent with the ability to take people in…
