  1. Obama will go down in history as the worst president we ever had. Either he hated the country or was incredibly stupid. Maybe both

  2. This idiot trump cancels his trip to Poland for the WW2 celebration. He goes to his golf club in Virginia at a cost of millions to the taxpayers and plays golf. He gives a press conference claiming he’s never heard of a category 5 hurricane. There have been 4 since he’s president. Then he claims the hurricane will hit Alabama. And Fox News ridicules what joe Biden says?😂

  3. Don't worry, our chosen hero president Donald J Trump will build a wall around the hurricane to stop it from attacking the US

  4. AOC, don't worry people, there will never be a shortage of cheese during any crisis, we can always go to the moon and get more

  5. This one's for North Carolina! see'mon and raise up
    Take your shirt off, twist it 'round yo' hand
    Spin it like a helicopter
    North Carolina! see'mon and raise up
    This one's for you, uh-huh, this one's for who?
    Us, us, us; yes sir!

  6. so if christians dont believe in evolution do they not believe that neanderthals or desinovans or other branches of humans existed?

  7. Any chance Dorian will skim the east coast, do a ' reach around ' back into the Gulf of Mexico and slam into Texas ? 👍

  8. Far left liberals are the racists, and the likes of George soros, Tom steiner, are the ones who want to bring this country to its knees

  9. Massive Floods in the Midwest and tornadoes,Massive hurricanes,Massive immigration,Massive shootings,ALL under the Trump administration!. Another Trump state getting hit! Again!. Most of these States voted for Trump.let their false prophet Trump save them!.

  10. So sorry your country is suffering , but something God does is bring out of disaster ,change , He bandages us up after devastation , I'm wondering if those Georgia Guidestone abominations will get flattened during this terrible time , we are all so vulnerable in this man forsaken world , my heart goes out to the USA , may you be Blessed with courage and wisdom ani angela nz messenger AROHA NUI Endsoftheearth

  11. Empathy and Compassion is in dire need, A Cat 4-5 Hurricane is about to hit the eastern portion of the United States and this is all anyone has to say ? I am praying for Everyone !!!!!

  12. I need to increase the amount of meat that I eat so that we can get rid of all these farting cows that cause these horrible hurricanes stop climate change eat meat. Or you could just not live on the coast staring at a bunch of water you can't even drink

  13. Fox News YouTube channel is so notorious for disabling the comment section, TrumpTards must resort to making their political statements on a weather related post, so sad. 😂 🌀

  14. By tomorrow night all of CNN will be explaining that Dorian is racist and President Trump is the real culprit because he said something 30 years ago……..

  15. CNN say the Russians ate to blame for Dorian and Juliette. I personally think it could be a big bad wolf. Stay safe folks.

  16. Do you think Trump will have the public pay for any damage to his property’s, or would that be the Russian’s for the loans they secured for him through the German banks? 🤔😳
    At least FEMA, gave their money 💵 to the concentration camps! 🤔😢😳
    “Fight the powers, Fight the powers that be!”❤️🤗🖖

  17. Jesus is returning soon to Earth to take His beloved people, read your bibles every day and accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior who died on the cross to cleanse us from all sins!

  18. What does Corruption look like ? With live satellite images they won't even show the hurricane approaching? Those hurricanes are headed in the path that African-Americans were brought here on slave ships and sold into slavery and still are mistreated!

  19. The only thing that is certain is that everyone trolling in these comments has never been, nor is currently, in the path of a hurricane. What a bunch of fuckwits.

  20. About 75-95% percent of this comment section is a bunch of memes and political commentary, or people saying this is God's wrath like that's a good thing

    wudafuk

  21. Let's not forget those poor souls in Alabama. Trump said the storm was heading there too and since Trump said it, it just has to be true.

  22. I’m still recovering from Florence.. I really hope North Carolina doesn’t get hit to hard, half of us are still trying to earn the money to fix our roofs and insides
