Leftist Celebrities Use Hurricane Florence to Slam President Trump

Chelsea Handler, Sarah Silverman, others take a natural disaster and twist it to spread their liberal points

Leftist celebrities are wasting no time using Hurricane Florence as an excuse to attack President Donald Trump.

Leave it to today’s Hollywood liberals to use a disaster as a platform to push their own views.

While they could be using their fame to help spread important information or help people, they are instead using Florence as little more than fodder for their latest anti-Trump tirades.

Tell us again how these people are rooting for America?

Former talk-show host Chelsea Handler, who previously used California wildfires as a way to target Trump, took to Twitter to use the president’s comments about the hurricane’s being “tremendously big and tremendously wet” as a way to continue spreading disgusting Russia conspiracy theories.

“Trump said Hurricane Florence is ‘tremendously big and tremendously wet.’ Also the same Yelp review he left for his hotel room in Russia,” she wrote on Twitter.

Others, like Bette Midler, also targeted the comment from Trump.

“Trump said that Hurricane Florence will be ‘tremendously big and tremendously wet.’ This is his way of saying he’s warming up his throwing arm! Paper towels! Incoming!!” the actress and musician wrote.

Comedian Sarah Silverman (shown above left) attacked Trump and his administration’s rollback of environmental regulations in a monologue on her Hulu series, “I Love You America.”

“They’re rolling back environmental regulations the same summer the West Coast has been ravaged by forest fires, the same week there’s a major hurricane, Hurricane Florence, on the East Coast,” said the comedian.

She then also criticized Trump for his “wet” comment and called him a “d***” and a “crappy president.”

Silverman was not the only celebrity to jump on a high horse about climate change.

“Star Trek” star George Takei (above right) was right there with her.

Takei partly blamed North Carolina politicians for any devastation caused by Hurricane Florence — and then predictably turned his attention to the president.

“In 2012, the Coastal Resources Commission warned that sea levels could rise by 39in over the next century due to climate change. The GOP-controlled North Carolina legislature reacted by passing a law banning any policy changes based on such forecasts. Welp. #ScienceMatters,” the actor wrote on Twitter.

He continued, “Under Trump’s new tax law, most people whose houses are destroyed by floods, fires and other natural disasters will not be eligible to deduct repairs to their homes. The deduction will only be allowed if the PRESIDENT declares a federal disaster. Other disasters not covered.”
