Letter on Trump, West 'babbling' raises questions

Here's a good one folks and you know it's true because you read it in The Daily Advance. You know they don't print anything until they've thoroughly researched everything that comes across the editor's desk, making sure the writer has the evidence to back up the claims. They do it to me me all the time, so I know this recent letter was correct in every detail.

Not only that but The Daily Advance seems to infer that the president of the United States has omnipotent powers similar to those of Moses. According to the letter, the president and someone called Kanye West were accused of sitting in the Oval Office acting bizarrely while Hurricane Michael tore up Mexico Beach, Florida. There are two things to contemplate here: Was the person making the accusation that the president and West are “narcissists” legally and medically trained to render that judgment; and how would the person know what goes on in the Oval Office?

Taking this “babbled” diatribe to its logical conclusion, is The Daily Advance saying that the president could have stopped the hurricane in its tracks but did nothing but “babble” while it destroyed lives and property? Is The Daily Advance saying the president should have stood up like Moses, rebuked the hurricane with his staff, and said peace be still, or at the least be in an attitude of deep contrition and prayer for the hurricane victims? Or perhaps he should have plopped down in ashes on the White House lawn garbed in sack cloth and commence to gnashing his teeth and rending his garments while casting dust on his head? Or perhaps this is only the babbling of a terrified Trump maniac?
