91 billion is the total estimated cost of damage by Hurricane Maria to Puerto Rico. "Puerto Rico got 91 Billion Dollars for the hurricane" is beyond the ****ing beyond dumb as hell.

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

meta stuff:

This is easily the worst thread on the forum. All that happens is the bot posts, bumping it to the top, which is then followed by 3-5 people trying to EPIC PWN Trump (often directly addressing him, 'Uh, hey moron...') by pointing out he is stupid, racist, or crooked - things absolutely everyone knows already.

There is no barely any ongoing conversation. Whenever one starts, it will be interrupted by a bot tweet from the stupid president, so the discussion has to be halted for the mandatory 3-5 sub-Daily Show level slams. Rinse and repeat forever.

Get rid of the bot. People can still post tweets in the thread the 5-10% of the time when they're actually newsworthy.

I'd be OK with scrapping the bot. I scroll past all the tweets now.

Keep the bot. Start threads of topics you think are getting short shrift in this thread.

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

I support a separate thread for the bot, if only because of how tilted by "Island leadership" I am right now.

Keep the bot. How else am I going to find out that the republicans, who have never had a healthcare plan, are going to have the greatest healthcare plan as soon as they are elected.

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

Scan documents into separate pdfs? Like one 50-page doc scanned to 50 separate PDF files?

So someone just made that up right? Someone really stupid.

Bot needs to stay as a constant reminder of what happens when people sit on their asses and don’t vote.

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

Seems like a reasonable compromise is to ask people to us the ignore function on the bot if they don't like it, and to ask posters to not quote the bot unless they have something more substantive to add than, "**** you, Mr. President," "I have spotted a misspelling!" or "OMG I thought he was stupid but this is a new low."
