As Hurricane Harvey bears down on the Texas coast, let me make a few bold predictions:
No matter what happens, Trump will be blamed -- it won't matter if Trump does everything perfectly, no matter what happens in the wake of this storm, the media will suggest that he did not do enough. It won't matter what the facts are, if so much as one person dies, they will scream that Trump didn't do enough. Or that he should have been doing something, anything, other than whatever he will be doing when the storm hits. And if the hurricane is a dud, he will be blamed for wasting all the money that was spent to get prepared.
The Hurricane will cause less damage than predicted -- NOAA and the climate people have been predicting for years that Climate Change will increase the number and severity of hurricanes. They have been wrong. There has not been a major hurricane landfall since 2005, and that fact is embarrassing. So they will overestimate this storm in every way. The actual event will be less than the predict. In fact, it might even miss Texas altogether!
The Hurricane will be linked to Global Warming -- They will claim that this is the type of storms that we can expect to see in the future. They will claim that we are all going to die in future climate-fueled disasters like this. And they will do it all while knowing that none of those claims are true. and the damage will used as 'evidence' of Global Warming despite the fact that weather is not climate, etc.
The Hurricane will be called racist -- at some point, the hurricane or its effects will be called racist. Never mind the fact that hurricanes are not sentient beings, or that the effects of wind and rain cannot discriminate based on race. There will be a flurry of demented people claiming that the effects are racist somehow.
All of these will come to pass, and I suspect that all of them will be rolled up into one giant mess of fake news and crap.
