The Best/Worst Political Tweets Of Hurricane Sandy

Nobody is worse than Donald Trump. posted on

As Sandy pummeled the East Coast on Monday, the Twitterverse was immediately abuzz with talk of how the massive storm might affect the national election next week.

Twelve days before an election WH taking no chance that opponents could say Pres Obama not up to speed on disaster preparations.

Well timed Frankenstorm. Week before election, pols will stay home and fall all over themselves to serve us.

A few voices on Twitter sent a message of unity:

Even just days before the election, #Sandy" target="_blank">http://twitter.com/search?q=%23Sandy">#Sandy is a reminder that political ideology is secondary to the fact that we are all Americans.

(Others, not so much.)

Experts say Sandy probaby won't damage the economy. At least any more than Obama already has.

Wonder if Politifact is going to fact check Obama's claim about the oceans receding with his nomination in 2008.

Sandy cld do what GOP govs tried (and only partially succeeded) to do for two years: cut down on early voting.

Romney is doing a "storm relief" event in Ohio? Why not come to NYC and give us a hand.

Predictably, the politicization of Sandy was met with jokes:

Leaving DC ahead of Frankenstorm, the latest media attempt to divert Election 2012 from anything substantive.

Could Frankenstorm wipe out enough Dem population centers to give election to Romney? Is the Almighty an early voter?

This Hurricane never would've happened in a Romney administration.

Some people were confused:

Clearly need sleep and/or a break from the campaign. Every time I see "Frankenstorm" on my twitter feed I think it says "Fehrnstrom."

Of course, Donald Trump added his two cents:

Hurricane is good luck for Obama again- he will buy the election by handing out billions of dollars.

Not only giving out money, but Obama will be seen today standing in water and rain like he is a real President --- don't fall for it.

Because of the hurricane, I am extending my 5 million dollar offer for President Obama's favorite charity until 12PM on Thursday.

(Not everyone was a fan.)

Hey, can one of the networks send @realDonaldTrump" target="_blank">http://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump">@realDonaldTrump out there to report live from the shore or a flood zone? Preferably without an umbrella?

And then there was this:

Forget Romney/Obama. I'm betting lots are thinking President Bloomberg this morning.
