According to Nashville Police:

“On Saturday, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee requested an emergency declaration from President Trump after the explosion devastated an entire city block. 

“The severity and magnitude of the current situation are such that effective response is beyond the capabilities of the State and affected local governments,” said Lee in a statement”.

What?

The state and local gov’ts can’t handle 1 destroyed city block?

What the hell are they being paid $100s of millions of dollars to run the gov’t for then?

If they can’t handle a small explosion that destroyed 1 city block, what would happen in a real disaster like an invasion or war and an entire city was destroyed?

What is the point of even having gov’ts if they are unable to do anything?

What are taxpayers paying all that $ for? So politicians and gov’t people can have a good life for not working?

What a joke the US has become.
