There was Arlene. There were Bret and Cindy. And now there’s Don. Tropical Storm Don, that is.
The fourth Atlantic tropical cyclonestrong enough to be listed this season, Don is expected to made the Windward Islands only on the edge of the Caribbean Sea later the coming week. And people have noticed some similarities between the squall and any particular American politician.
Don’t get too excited, however. The gale was not identified after Donald Trump.
The name is just the next up on analphabetical list picked several years ago by a non-political international committee of meteorologists.So it’s really a co-occurrence that the murderou jazz blizzard shares a list with the ever-tweeting, ever-defensive President of the United States.
But that doesn’t mean thereisn’t an miraculous affinity. Both Dons promised to blow hard-bitten, but have so farended up exactly being blowhards. The storm was initially were supposed to hit islands in the Caribbean hard, buthas since fizzled and will likely just deliver heavy rains.
The National Hurricane Center described the gale as small and not particularly well organized , and while I don’t regularly spoken hurricane calculate descriptions, this seems a little pointed for, you know, a blizzard system.
This isn’t the first time the president, who is currently notoriously thin-skinned, has been the laughingstock of weather- and climate-related jokes.
The Weather Channel famously trolled him when he decided to pull out of the Paris climate accord in June, comprising their part front sheet with commodities about environment discipline. To boot, jokes about #PresidentBannon apparently antagonized him so much better that he thought about canning White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.
So, patently, as one does when one’s director is so easily incensed, Twitter is “re making fun of” him and his namesakestorm’s waning power.
While not exactly a tweet storm, here are some tweets about the storm.
I like to dream him sitting in the Oval Office, perfectly fuming, seeing Bannon and Chief of StaffReince Priebus read out all of these tweets while he comes up with a sick sunburn for the haters.
Unfortunately for him, there’s no Hillary on the register, but there is a Hilda. He precisely has to wait until 2021. Don’t we all.
