Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

So Trump can make up any story he wants (aka repeat made-up stories from Fox) and put it out on twitter and half the country believes him?


Narrator: Yes.

Some sort of software **** up seems most likely.

Quoting myself, but whatever. Thinking about it a little more, the software statement is a little bit too much handwavy. From what I can tell, it's a VERY small debris field, meaning the plane hit the ground nose down going VERY fast - which could mean the plane had stalled for some reason, in which case the remedy is nose down speed up - and they ran out of altitude before they could recover. Or, some kind of catastrophic mechanical problem occurred which resulted in a dive into the ground that the pilots couldn't control - or suicide, like the German Wings flight. The small debris field makes a terrorist attack less likely - an explosive decompression event could explain it, as the only piece of the plane missing initially would be a cargo door which might be tough to determine - and if the event caused loss of the control equipment, the low altitude would result in a small area of impact, rather than scattering debris all over. But the pilot seemed to know he was in trouble, he just couldn't figure out what was going on. Pilot error seems less likely given the 8000 hours of experience - but if the pilot had some sort of medical disaster the copilot was VERY green - only 200 hours. At least a possible issue, I suppose.

I think the first one is most likely - failure to recover from a stall. The question is why the stall occurred. At relatively low altitudes like this flight, problems with the pitot tubes/airspeed indicators would be the most likely cause, but AFAIK the pilots didn't say anything to indicate they were worried about that sort of problem. They just said they couldn't control the plane, which could mean any number of things. The data recorders should help a lot, if the data is recoverable - which Boeing better hope it is. Planes falling out fo the sky - bad. Planes falling out of sky for no reason, or at least for no reason you can determine, could put you out of business.

My point was that he would never say something like "we need less technology" when it comes to **** the republicans like, like increased airport security that discriminates against brown people, not that the TSA is awesome.

The exception being the worldís busiest airport, Atlanta, which was just voted 2nd in US for food and is above average in every area AFAIK



Also, Burbank my favorite airport due to how easy and quick it is to get in/out of and through the process to the gate.

737 Max now banned from flying / landing / airspace in EU, India, Ethiopia, Singapore, China, France, Ireland, Germany, Australia, Indonesia and Malaysia have all temporarily suspended the 737 Max.

USA FAA still reckons the 737 MAX safe to fly though

Europe and India join wave of countries grounding the 737 Max

Ted Lieu on CNN just whipped out his CS degree to pwn Trump on the plane safety situation. Didn't mention the school though.

I know I am largely preaching to the choir here, but I don't "blame" Trump for being the way he is. Something undoubtedly went very very wrong early on in his life that made him the way he is. And nobody has ever corrected/modified/nurtured him into becoming one iota better over the years. He has surely gotten much worse over the years. Okay, everybody agrees with all of that.

What I don't understand is .... why would anybody want him to be PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES??

As disgusting as he is the republicans that stand up for him are worse. Guys like Paul Ryan, Mitch and the Christiaaan Mike Pence are worse
