Hurricane Irma is cutting a wide swath of destruction in the Carribean, en route to Florida. Meanwhile, Equifax doxxes 44% of all Americans, a racist Twitter lady waxes poetic about white guy spooge, and wolves are fucking huge, man.
I combined the images of Hurricane Andrew (1992) & Hurricane Irma (today) at scale in a gif. Irma is a damn leviathan. pic.twitter.com/4HEw1NNxxd

Harvey aid will cost $100 billion. Irma aid, we have no idea.
Trump and the GOP must have their tax cuts, though. Cruel AF assholes. https://t.co/VmwPEmD5wi

But, hey, maybe Trump will be able to profit from the hurricane. He’s done it before:
That time Trump took $17 million in insurance money for non-existent damages to Mar-a-Lago https://t.co/FTm6Z0NI28
