Hurricane Dorian is sweeping toward Florida right now and the forecasts are ominous.
“Dorian is a Category 2 hurricane and is forecast to intensify into a powerful Category 4, posing a prolonged danger that may last days to Florida and the southeastern United States over Labor Day weekend,” The Weather Channel reports.
“As the exact track of Hurricane Dorian is becoming more certain, with a strike along the central Florida Atlantic coast the most probable outcome, the tropical cyclone is likely to unleash torrential rain and raise the risk of flooding after landfall next week,” Accuweather notes. “Following major impact to lives and property due to high winds and coastal flooding, heavy rain and inland flooding may be Dorian’s second wind over the southeastern United States.”
President Donald Trump — whose Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach is currently in the crosshairs of most computer models for the path of the storm — warned on Twitter that Dorian could be an “absolute monster.”
“All indications are it’s going to hit very hard and it’s going to be very big,” Trump said in a video, comparing the coming storm to the historic Hurricane Andrew, which destroyed thousands of homes south of Miami in 1992 when it made landfall with winds above 165 miles per hour.
But “Trump Derangement Syndrome” has prompted some people to express their desire that the hurricane directly hit Trump’s resort.
Former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell — who called Trump a “motherf***er” just days before he was inaugurated — said precisely that.
“I’m rooting for a direct hit on Mar-a-Lago!” she wrote on Twitter (she later deleted the tweet).
Others have also gleefully piled on, hoping for the destruction of Trump’s resort.
But actor Allen Covert, who has starred in and written several movies with Adam Sandler, including “Happy Gilmore” and “Anger Management,” took aim at all those haters.
“My family lives about 10 miles from Mar-a-Lago so all of you people cheering the fact that Dorian might wipe it out can kindly go f[***] yourselves. You have sunk so low in your hatred that you have become worse than what you hate,” the actor wrote on Twitter.
Others expressed disgust at Campbell’s tweet.
“One thing is evident from the comments. Anti-Trumpers are NOT the kind, loving, wonderful people they pretend to be,” wrote one person on Twitter.
“If there’s any question as to how vile, violent, and intolerant the Left is, simply read the tweets, it will tell you exactly who they are,” wrote another.
But Canadians, as everyone knows, are generally the most polite people in the world — and one resident of Ontario took to Twitter to apologize on his country’s behalf.
“On behalf of Canada, I’d like to apologize to all our American brothers & sisters for the remarks of our once & very brief PM, Kim Campbell. She was useless then & now she’s less than that, wishing Hurricane Dorian to hit Mar-a-lago. She’s just an ass, she doesn’t represent” Canada, wrote Brian E. Reid.
