Hurricane Donald

The New York Times has a piece on how the Florida panhandle suffered through Hurricane Michael in October and is now suffering through Hurricane Donald and his partial government shutdown. Many in the panhandle, who reliably vote Republican, rely on the federal government for jobs. Now they're looking at a potential abyss caused by the guy they voted for.

The jaw-dropping part of the article is the ending quote from a federal prison employee:

I voted for him, and hes the one whos doing this, she said of Mr. Trump. I thought he was going to do good things. Hes not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.

Obvious follow-up: “Who did you want him to hurt?” Was it even asked?
