The development news about the Key Bridge is horrible.
The bridge was struck by a cargo ship.

I’m afraid people will take the opportunity and advantage to boast themselves making unwarranted comments and claims.

Hopefully the media will not give them any credence to their claims.

This was horrible and needs to be addressed as an accident and nothing else.

I pray for those who were on the bridge at the time of the accident.


DUmmies know what they would do if Trump was president.  They would excoriate him as this being his fault and now they're afraid of what is coming.  Democrats surround this whole thing and it terrifies them, especially in an election year.

Wait, it won't be long and they will find SOME piece of solid evidence to prove that Trump himself inspected that bridge and is solely responsible for this accident.

Of course, they are still going to find a way to blame Trump and Republicans for this disaster.

I wonder who imanamerican63 has in mind with "unwarranted comments and claims". Conspiracy-theorists are not solely of one political party/inclination. I looked through the thread about this on another Conservative discussion site and did find one post saying the ship turned toward the bridge (which is true) and that it looked intentional. Other posts are just giving information, with a couple saying the turn probably was not intentional. As for the member who claimed it looked intentional, she's a known CTist fruitcake who love posting links to clickbait sites.

OTOH, I wonder if imanamerican63's comment is double-edged, a hope that DUpipo won't try to blame Trump or MAGApublicans or "Christian Nationalists". I man, Trump did extinct the dinosaurs, right?
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

I’m sure pretty soon. We’ll hear from transportation secretary, Pete, butt plug about what happened. it’s possible that this was a racist bridge and that’s why the ship took it out

Why almost like every gun shooting to ever happen until it is found out that it was a tranny or black that committed the gun murder.

Well from what I heard from those in the know it went down like this:

So, Trump in a drug induced rage boarded the vessel at 1am, while eating his Big Mac in the galley he threw the meal against the wall and stormed out.  He approached the bridge and suddenly felt a need to head to the Capital and lunged for the helm and turned off the power to the ship as everyone was trying to fight him off. After they removed him and got power back, jumping out of the bushes on the bridge wing Trump grabbed the helm and steered it for the bridge.  This was everyone watching started to applaud

Already seen video of Pete ButtPlugs saying exactly that: that the bridge was faulty because of the inherent racism of the engineer that designed it. I would have laughed out loud if it hadn't been exactly what I was expecting to escape from his cock holster...

11. I expect them to exploit this and can see the avenue of attack

This will be exploited using their well worn 'America First' talking point.

I expect them to criticize the lack of updates made to the bridge for decades following the Sunshine Skyway collapse in 1980. They'll claim were spending too much money on foreign countries when we should be spending it here on security. I also expect them to reference Ukraine assistance spending in that attack as well.

How many billions did BIDEN send to Ukraine?  :confused:

They don't have to look far for conspiracy theories.  Only four hours after the accident one of their "wisest" posters tried to start one:

but I just saw a sped-up video of the collision and it really looks like the ship swung toward the support as though it were aiming for it.

Sorry…I’m a lunatic sometimes.

12. The overall bridge length is over 8,600 ft

the center 1,200 ft has collapsed.

So he is right, it is a "partial bridge collapse"

9. My mind takes me on some wild rides sometimes

Immediately after seeing speculation about power loss, I wondered whether it could be sabotage - something that the crew managed to do a work-around, alas, too late. I will refrain from further speculation until details emerge. In the meantime, I expect the CT blogosphere to go ape-shit.

As far as people taking the opportunity and advantage to boast themselves making unwarranted comments and claims, maybe the DUmp should take a look at Biden's press conference about the accident, where he said the following:

Quote
At about 1:30, a container ship struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge, which I’ve been over many, many times commuting from the state of Delaware either on a train or by car.

Unfortunately, there are no train tracks crossing the Francis Scott Key Bridge.  He lied yet again to try to show what a man of the people he is and how personal this accident is to him.  He never misses an opportunity to fabricate a story if the truth doesn't put the spotlight on him.

Apparently, this is not the first incident with the ship, it crashed into a dock once before, and has had other mechanical problems.

So DUmmie PCIntern knows:

* The powerless ship was not turned by the current or tide;

* The powerless ship was not turned by wind against its huge side;

* The rudder did not jam starboard when the ship lost power?

Sorry, DUmmie PCIntern, this was not done by the MAGApublican you seek.
