Donald Trump knows how to put out the Notre Dame fire (and fix Boeing too!)

“So horrible to look at the huge fireplace at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris,” the President tweeted. “Maybe flying water tankers might be used to place it out. Should act shortly!” After touchdown, Trump added: “After we left the airplane it was burning at a degree that you simply hardly ever see a hearth burn.”

What we all know for positive is that Donald Trump is not a) a skilled firefighter b) an emergency responder c) an architect or d) an engineer.

The French Civil Safety company responded to Trump’s suggestion, saying that dropping water from the air onto the constructing may collapse the whole construction.

“The load of the water and the depth of the drop at low altitude may certainly weaken the construction of Notre-Dame and lead to collateral injury to the buildings within the neighborhood,” tweeted the company, which is a part of the French Ministry of Inside.

In comparable conditions, previous presidents would sometimes launch an announcement expressing their shock and disappointment in regards to the injury to such an iconic construction and providing to assist the French authorities in any potential approach as they grapple with the aftermath of the fireplace.

Which is precisely what first girl Melania Trump, who was touring to Ft. Bragg Monday, did. “My coronary heart breaks for the folks of Paris after seeing the fireplace at Notre Dame Cathedral,” she tweeted. “Praying for everybody’s security.” And what Vice President Mike Pence did: “Notre Dame is an iconic image of religion to folks all around the world — and it’s heartbreaking to see a home of God in flames. Our ideas and prayers are with the firefighters on the scene and all of the folks of Paris.”

Neither the primary girl nor the vp nor every other politician I may discover on Twitter advised, a la Trump, one of the best ways for the Parisians to place out the raging inferno. As a result of they’re politicians. Not firefighters.

That Trump supplied his personal two cents on one of the best ways to place out the fireplace versus merely expressing condolences is a mirrored image of his perception {that a}) everybody needs his opinion always and b) his is an skilled opinion, it doesn’t matter what the subject material.

Earlier on Monday, we had one other shining instance of Trump’s everyone-is-entitled-to-my-opinion lifestyle. Seemingly out of nowhere, Trump tweeted this:

“What do I learn about branding, perhaps nothing (however I did grow to be President!), but when I have been Boeing, I’d FIX the Boeing 737 MAX, add some further nice options, & REBRAND the airplane with a brand new identify.

“No product has suffered like this one. However once more, what the hell do I do know?”

He is referring, after all, to the grounded fleet of 737s following two crashes linked to the stabilization system within the new-model planes. Boeing — and the Federal Aviation Administration — are within the midst of an investigation into what went unsuitable and tips on how to repair what seems to be a software program drawback on the brand new planes. Trump is, once more, not a) a pilot b) a airplane mechanic c) an aviation or aerospace business govt. (He did have his personal non-public airplane previous to being elected President, although, and even owned a short-lived airline he known as Trump Shuttle.)

None of that issues to Trump. What issues is that he is the President of the USA. And somebody who had made some huge cash on branding. So why not share his opinion on what Boeing needs to be doing to rebrand itself after they work out what went unsuitable to deliver two brand-new planes down in crashes that killed everybody aboard?

We have all met folks like this in our lives. Individuals who assume they’ve all of the solutions, on each topic, always — and need to ensure they share them with you. On this case, the particular person simply occurs to be the President of the USA.
