Former Canadian Prime Minister Tweets She Hopes Hurricane Dorian Wrecks Trump’s Mar-a-Lago

Former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell is hoping Tropical Storm Dorian, which is expected to intensify into a hurricane over the next couple days will directly hit President Trump’s Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago.

The thoughtless tweet would subject hundreds of thousands of other Florida residents who do not evacuate the area to be affected by the forceful and destructive hurricane winds.

Responding to a tweet which said Hurricane Dorian could be larger than a Category 3 before it hit Florida, Campbell tweeted, “I’m rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago!” The tweet has since been deleted.

“Well, we will see if Mrs. Post’s design can stand up to the assault!” she said in another tweet, a clear reference to Marjorie Merriweather Post, the builder of Mar-a-Lago, USA Today reports. “I know Palm Beach well and am sorry if it gets a big hit.

“I have deleted my tweet about the hurricane & Mar a Lago and sincerely apologize to all it offended,” Campbell later added. “It was intended as sarcasm-not a serious wish of harm. Throwaway lines get a life of their own on Twitter. I shd know better.”

Reuters similarly reports the Dorian could be a category 4 before it strikes the coast of the continental United States early next week.

According to the report, President Trump is describing the hurricane as an “absolute monster.”

Per Reuters:

The Miami-based National Hurricane Center issued a hurricane watch for northwestern Bahamas on Friday and said the risk of “devastating hurricane-force winds along the Florida east coast late this weekend and early next week continues to increase.”

The storm began Friday over the Atlantic at Category 2 but was already expected to reach Category 3 later in the day, with sustained winds of at least 111 mpg (178km/h).

The entire state of Florida is under a declaration of emergency and Governor Ron DeSantis activated 2,500 National Guard troops with another 1,500 on standby.

Forecasters predict the storm growing more ferocious as it slows its advance across the warm waters near the coast, striking land late on Monday or early Tuesday. Tropical storm winds could be felt in Florida as soon as Saturday evening.

And:

If, as expected, it reaches Category 4 by Sunday, its winds will blow at more than 130 mph. Its 12 mph (9 kph) march across the map could slow down to a 4 mph crawl. The slower it moves, the more time it has to draw fuel from the warm seas.

Recent weather models from the National Hurricane Center show it smacking into the center of the state. It was trending slightly south in the latest advisory issued at 5 a.m. Friday.

It could roll inland towards Orlando on Tuesday or early Wednesday, weakening as it moves away from the sea. Other NHC weather models show it tracking south toward Miami before it hits the peninsula, or heading north to the Georgia coast.

In a video posted to Twitter, Trump said: “Now it’s looking like it could be an absolute monster,” He also said how he would no longer be traveling to Poland like he was initially scheduled but would remain in the United States to assess the damage and take any needful actions to provide aid.
