;D

The implication being that you believe Trump knows more about fighting fires in Paris than the BSPP, which in turn suggests that you believe that you also know more about fighting fires in Paris than the BSPP.  :-*
No implication of any kind was made about Trump's knowledge or lack there of firefighting.

Media Try to Use Notre Dame Fire to Embarrass President Trump

On Monday, the world watched in horror as the famous Notre Dame Cathedral burned. A deeply concerned President Trump put out a tweet urging for water-tanker helicopters to be used to put out the blaze. We later learned that French authorities didn’t use them because the weight of the water could cause further destruction. Despite many other people thinking the same thing, members of liberal media used it as an opportunity to score cheap points against Trump. But not all did.

For ABC’s World News Tonight, chief White House correspondent Jon Karl dug into Trump for offering “some unsolicited advice” to French firefighters. “Would that work? A veteran American firefighter told David it would not,” he chided.

He added: “Later, the French Civil Defense Agency said essentially the same thing. In its one and only tweet of the day in English. ‘All means are being used, except for water-bombing aircrafts which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral.’”

During CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront, comedic reporter Jeanne Moos mocked the President’s idea for getting shot down:


JEANNE MOOS: President Trump offered advice, “perhaps flying water tankers could be used to put it must act quickly.” Jersey City’s fire chief threw cold water on that.

CHIEF STEVEN MCGILL (Jersey City Fire Department): Water is very heavy and if it hits a structure like that, out of a tanker, it could cause further collapse.

But not all members of the liberal media used the tragedy to dunk on the President; some saw that the moment needed something greater than petty politics.

 




 

In contrast, CNN host Chris Cuomo chose not to mock Trump’s idea during Prime Time as he talked with John Jay College Associate Professor of Fire Science Glenn Corbett and explain the science behind why that wasn't used. “And now, you and I are not here to talk about politics a lot of people were making the suggestion, which is, where are the choppers? I brought it up on live television today because we think about that,” he said.

And he was telling the truth. Throughout the live coverage of the fire during CNN Newsroom, Cuomo repeatedly questioned and brought up the lack of helicopters. Here are a couple of those times (click “expand”):



We don't know about anybody inside. We don’t know about injuries. One of the points of curiosity is why are there no helicopters dumping water on this? They’re right next to the River Seine. We’re getting information.

(…)

I want to [CNN Senior European correspondent] Jim Bittermann, now. Jim, you've been a teacher to me about the politics and life in Paris for years now. What do you know about what the efforts are and the capabilities and why we haven't seen the helicopters that one might imagine would be used in this type of situation?

Shockingly, Cuomo even commended Trump as he was wrapping up his discussion with Professor Corbett. “Again, it’s not about the President, not today. He actually said the right thing. He recognizes it’s a tragedy, said work was going to slow down within the White House – what they were talking about – because all eyes were on this. But a lot of people were talking about that…” he said while pointing to a monitor with Trump’s tweet on it.

Well, you know that Pepsi's hatred runs deep. If President Trump happened to sneeze on camera, he would probably try to insinuate that he did it wrong.

Us pointing out his Hero Obama's failures had nothing to do with nit-picking like Pepsi does. They were failures that had a huge effect on this country. And let's not mention the President that invaded Iraq for those non existing WOMD.

If President Trump said nothing about Notre Dame, he would have jumped on that also.  ::) ::)
All truth passes through three stages:
First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

If he doesnt' know anything about a topic, why is he giving advise on said topic?   Giving bad advise is *not helpful* and makes him look *stupid*.

absolutely nothing will be found.

there is nothing to be found.

That idea was thought of by many, many people.
Why would that make Trump look stupid?

Remember this from barry?
barry, stfu! You don't know the facts.
Obama: Police who arrested professor 'acted stupidly'

"I don't know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts
, what role race played," Obama said Wednesday night while taking questions after a White House news conference.

Like all deluded narcissists he can't help but think he has the answer to every question. Unworkable childishly simplistic inexpert solutions are all he has to offer. Trump is literally not intelligent enough to understand that he lacks the intelligence to know when to shut the fuck up and seek the counsel of people who actually know what they're talking about.

That could be accurately said of you.
