Trump has done himself no favors here though with his constant lying about everything and anything, no matter how trivial or easy to disprove. Had he not built up such a reputation people might be more inclined to believe him when he denies anonymous reports.

Or, more likely, just to gain attention. Of which he gets plenty.

The fact that Trump tweeted out about the report, saying it's fake news, lets us know without a doubt that Trump absolutely did say it LOL.

Well, I'd rather that the most powerful man in the world not ask MORONIC questions.

I didn't realize all hurricanes were exactly the same size with the same amount of force.


I don't believe bombing a hurricane would work but your numbers are irrelevant. It isn't about the amount of force but the application of force. The kinetic energy of a bullet is also a tiny fraction of the kinetic energy of a charging elephant but if it hits the right spot it can instantaneously kill the elephant.
