As Hurricane Dorian barrels toward Florida as a projected category 4-plus storm, Trump haters are openly rooting for a direct hit on President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach.
The most notable such person is former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell, who said Thursday that she hoped the life-threatening storm would make a “direct hit” on the president’s exclusive resort.
In a now deleted tweet, Campbell exclaimed: “I’m rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago!”
According to some predictions, Dorian is on track to do just that.

Campbell’s hateful comment spurred an immediate backlash from multiple Twitter users—including the president’s son Eric Trump, who is an executive vice president of The Trump Organization.
“Our family is rooting for the safety of millions of homes, businesses, families and wonderful people in a great State of Florida,” he tweeted, along with the hashtag, #Classless.

Campbell, who served less than five months as Canada’s prime minister in 1993 after the resignation of Brian Mulroney, was initially unapologetic. She doubled down and told her critics to “get a grip.”
“As there are in Puerto Rico- sorry you don’t get snark- but Trump’s indifference to suffering is intolerable!” Campbell said to a critic who pointed out “real people” live and work in and around Mar-a-Lago. “We’d also help if he tackled climate change which is making hurricanes more destructive! Instead, he will remove limits on methane! Get a grip!”

On Friday, Campbell saw the error of her ways and apologized.
“I have deleted my tweet about the hurricane & Mar a Lago [sic] and sincerely apologize to all it offended,” she tweeted. “It was intended as sarcasm- not a serious wish of harm. Throwaway lines get a life of their own on Twitter. I [should] know better. Mea culpa.”
Of course, Campbell isn’t the only lefty who disgracefully shared her wish that Mar-a-Lago be destroyed on a public forum. Twitter is rife with nasty vermin who think their dark, Trump-deranged fantasies are normal and mainstream.
One person responded to Eric Trump’s tweet by proudly proclaiming that “a bunch of Americans would love to see your shithole daddy’s property destroyed.”
Newsflash…she is not the only one rooting for Dorian to hit Mar-a-Lago. There are a bunch of Americans who would love to see your shithole daddy's property destroyed. But we also know he will be corrupt and commit insurance fraud again.

Most of America prays Dorian DESTROYS MAR-A-LAGO. Just desserts for a corporate fascist pig who cares ZERO about the future of this planet and works his ASS OFF to hasten it's demise, to secure short term profits for himself and his "friends". CHICKENS COMING HOME TO ROOST!

A verified Twitter user who describes himself as a “husband,” “peripatetic freelance writer” and “decent and ethical human being,” said he hoped Mara-a-Lago would be destroyed, adding that he hoped the level 4 hurricane wouldn’t hurt anyone in the process.
Dear Dorian: Please bring Mar A Lago to the ground. Please hurt nobody in the process. Thanks in advance. Signed, Sane America.

I hope hurricane Dorian makes a direct hit on Mar a Lago and wipes it out so you finally have to stay in DC and actually work #LockHimUp

Wipe it off the face of this earth! PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — President Donald Trump's prized Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida is potentially sitting directly in the path of Hurricane Dorian , which is forecast to become an extremely destructive storm.

Not that I want a hurricane to form and hit the mainland at any time but couldn't you please focus on Mar-a-Lago, Dorian? Sometimes it takes a disaster to convince someone that climate chaos is real. #Dorianflorida #ClimateCrisis #HurricaneDorian2019

We can all line up to throw paper towels when Dorian hits Mar-a-lago #KarmaIsaBitch

As Dorian bears down on Florida, some Godless leftists are suddenly finding religion to celebrate God for smiting #OrangeManBad.
When natural disasters strike, there’s always some Evangelical asshole talking about the wrath of God…this might be the only time I believe it. https://t.co/nHnmN5y3uk

If Hurricane Dorian destroys Mar-a-Lago, I may decide to believe that God exists. Meanwhile, here in Virginny… pic.twitter.com/pu64vCj1Jg

Just saw on Yahoo news that Dorian is heading straight for Mar-a-Lago. God DOES work in mysterious ways. I'm sure he'll apply for FEMA..

I'm all in favor of God's effort to send Dorian to destroy Mar-A-Lago with extreme prejudice.
My concern is that it would just result in huge, taxpayer funded opportunities for some epic grifting by the Trump Crime Family. ????????????????
