Is Donald Trump To Blame For Death In Trump Tower Fire?!

On Saturday afternoon a fire broke out on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in Manhattan. Within hours Donald Trump was tweeting about how the tower was "well-built" — and showed his characteristic lack of empathy as he did not mention the firefighters who were injured nor the resident who was seriously injured. That man, art collector [...] On Saturday afternoon a fire broke out on the 50th floor of Trump Tower in Manhattan. Within hours Donald Trump was tweeting about how the tower was "well-built" -- and showed his characteristic lack of empathy as he did not mention the firefighters who were injured nor the resident who was seriously injured. That man, art collector Todd Brassner, later died from his injuries. Photos: Trump's Many Scandals EXPLAINED! The blaze, ultimately reported as a 4-alarm, is raising new alarms this week. The first revelation? The apartment had no sprinklers. Strangely, this was not illegal -- and Trump is part of the reason why. Back in 1999 a law was signed by then-Mayor (and future Trump supporter) Rudy Giuliani requiring all high-rise residential units to have sprinklers. Except Trump fought hard and ultimately successfully to allow his building, which was constructed in 1983, to be grandfathered in. The NY Post reported at the time that Trump was complaining it was too costly. He called a dozen members of the city council personally. He donated money to the city speaker. The bill was revised to not include towers built before the law went into place. How many buildings got to skate? How many others have died from fires in the 19 years since? Of course Trump cared more about the money than the lives. He only sees one color: green. Related: Trump FINALLY Acknowledges Stormy Daniels Hush Money That isn't the only strange thing about the fire. There's also the fact that there was no evacuation. While an automated alarm alerted the fire department, it's still unclear if an alarm went off in the building. There was no 911 call, and some residents say they only learned of it in other ways. 76-year-old Lalitha Masson, who lives on the 36th floor, told the NY Post she learned about the fire from the news on TV: "We're terrified. It was a very horrible experience, there was no evacuation system in place, we were at a loss of what to do. I almost fainted, I thought we would die." No evacuation system in place? Stranger still were comments by Bethenny Frankel's boyfriend Dennis Shields, who lives eight floors below the fire. He told The New York Times he heard about it from none other than Donald Trump's lawyer! "Michael Cohen, who is Trump's lawyer was texting me and said 'are you in the building? I said 'yes.' He said 'you better get out ASAP!' That's how I knew to get out, otherwise I'd still be in there." How did Cohen know about it so fast? Did he see it on TV too? None of the Trump family, which has residences on the top floors of the 58-story high-rise, were in the building at the time of the fire. We also don't yet know if their apartments have sprinklers. But we imagine we'll learn in the coming days. [Image via WENN/CBS/Twitter.].....»»

A voluntary evacuation remains in effect for Calabasas areas south of the 101.”.....»»

The A-list couple’s house, which was in the mandatory evacuation zone, is at the end of a cul-de-sac and borders a field.

Apparently, “the team was armed with hoses, and also tirelessly dug ditches to create a fire break.” The fires did not damage their homes or the neighbors’ homes, and the site is reporting that they spoke to some of the neighbors who are thanking the couple!.....»»

After Las Vegas Shooting, Gun Mod Supplier Suspends All Sales Of Controversial "Bump Stocks"

We had no idea what a "bump stock" was a few days ago. And we should never have had to learn.

Essentially a bump stock is a rifle modification that makes a semi-automatic weapon fire with the speed of a fully automatic weapon. It's what the Las Vegas shooter used to kill 59 people and injure hundreds more attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday. Related: Just FYI, It's Illegal To Carry A Toy Gun On Las Vegas Strip This gun modification is at the moment completely legal, or as Slide Fire, the company that originated the design, puts it, bump stocks are "controllable, safe, and ATF approved!" Well, that may not be true much longer. The NRA, possibly in an effort to pass the blame from guns in general to this one specific technology, has come out with a rare statement in favor or MORE gun control, writing: "The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations." We have to note they also took the opportunity to give a very shady "Thanks, Obama" for old times' sake, writing: "In Las Vegas, reports indicate that certain devices were used to modify the firearms involved. Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law." Right. You know how those liberals hate gun safety regulations. Never mind that the NRA was paying off politicians all those years too... Related: This Country Musician Survived And It Completely Changed His Stance On Gun Control However they want to play it politically, it's actually an important point. These modifications did make the weapons used in Las Vegas that much more dangerous. Well, now The Blast noticed that Slide Fire has actually suspended their sales! In a message on their website, they inform consumers that they have decided to "temporarily suspend taking new orders." They may say it's to "provide the best service" for existing orders, but we highly doubt the timing is a coincidence. Maybe they were overloaded with orders by gun enthusiasts who heard about their use in the Vegas attack and decided they needed to have that on their guns. Maybe they were told to hold off until the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms has given their product another look. Maybe they saw what their product was being used for and grew a conscience? We'll have to wait and see. [Image via Twitter/Slide Fire.].....»»

Malibu Wine Safaris Explains Why They Didn"t Evacuate Animals After Being Called Out By Whitney Cummings

Malibu Wine Safaris has responded after being called out by Whitney Cummings, who went to check on Stanley the Giraffe and the other animals amid the California wildfires.

Veterinarian Dr. Stephen Klause issued a statement on Facebook, writing, “Ranch personnel received minimal time notification (a little more than 2 hours) that the fire was likely to move over their area. This small window of time given to ranch personnel was due to the speed that the fire was moving because of the 50-70 mph Santa Ana winds. The ranch staff immediately instituted the planned fire protocol that was in place for just such an occurrence.” “All of the exotic and domestic animals plus boarding horses were let out into the wide open central area that is contained with many fenced off pastures. This wide open area has no trees or brush, but consists of short grass, dirt, and a lake area. This barren enclosure has little to no ‘fuel’ to power a fire or facilitate the spread of one,” he continued. “There are over one hundred exotic and domestic animals in addition to dozens of boarding horses on Saddlerock Ranch. As a veterinarian with 33 years of experience, the fire protocol of moving the animals into the central area was the most prudent and realistic plan to get the animals to safety.” The veterinarian continued, “Exotic animals cannot simply be haltered and moved onto a trailer and off of the property. The majority of them require anesthesia and major lifting capability to move them onto a trailer. It would take weeks to move a collection of that size and animal type, which in itself, would be an extreme risk to some of the animals. The staff did an amazing job in a very short period of time to accomplish this feat.” Two animals were injured, and he also explained what happened to them. Read the entire statement below….....»»
