Trump denies hurricane killed 3k in puerto rico


#346

We know nothing of the kind. Such a claim is absolutely unprovable.


#347

Only if you have no common sense and need to carry Trumps water.


#348

come on guys. only about 16-18 people died in PR.

that’s some masterful presidentin there.


#349

Once again you have yet to demonstrate that you even understand the meaning of the phrase.

If you cannot even show the cause of death much less what precipitated it common sense says you cannot attribute it to any specific cause or event.


#350

What happened to suicide? That corner you keep backing into is awfully small.


#351

Yes, a 21% higher mortality rate was just a random ‚Äúcoincidence‚ÄĚ with a devastating hurricane‚Ķ, you are not the sharpest tool in the shed, are you?


#352

I guess if you cant argue with facts, you create a strawman and argue with that.

Many more died… the bodies are real…but the hurricane did not kill them.


#353

Yes, Rubin Cane was wrongfully convicted, good point.


#354

If I die 3 days after a car accident, from complications from my car accident… did I die because of the car accident or just naturally?


#355

Your death certificate has to state the make and model of the car that killed you, the vin number in some states.


#356

Causal factor
Contributing factor

Learn.


#357

so the argument is because we cant tell how some of these people died that the 3000 figure is false?


#358

you might wanna tell your favorite politician…


#359

nah. what’s really happening is Trump said something stupid and Trump Republicans just rushed to defend him in any way possible. as usual.


#360

I kind of laughed because my uncle is a pig farmer in NC. Praying they will be ok.


#361

Why did you say ‚Äúnaturally‚ÄĚ as the other choice? No one is saying that. Just you.

If you are taken to a hospital with lots of gashes and broken bones but die of an infection, the medical records will NOT say that you died of a car accident. They will say you died of a condition that was not present on admission‚Ķ and the hospital will get a ‚Äúdemerit‚ÄĚ for your death.

That was a perfect example. Thanks.


#362

He and I are saying the same things. The hurricane did not kill all those people. Mr Trump and I are in sync.


#363

Apparently. The tactic here is to doubt the report, then ask others to disprove one’s doubt.


#364

It is a false statement to say the hurricane killed 3000 people.
