WND Blames Fla. Bridge Collapse On Obama, Because Of Course It Would
Topic: WorldNetDaily

The Obama derangement never stops at WorldNetDaily, it appears.

A March 4 WND article by Art Moore first laments that the deadly collapse of a pedestrian bridge under construction  at Florida International University was being "politicized" -- then joined in said politicization by blaming President Obama for it:

It didn’t take long for the horrific, deadly collapse Thursday of a newly installed pedestrian bridge at Florida International University’s Miami-Dade campus to become politicized.

On Twitter, President Trump is being blamed for wanting to build a wall while “our infrastructures are falling apart, for going out of his way to loosen building regulations and passing a tax-cut bill instead of doing “some REAL work for the country.”

While it’s too early to determine the precise causes of the tragic accident, which killed at least six people, Reason magazine assistant editor Christian Britschgi points out in a column Friday that, if anything, President Obama’s fingerprints are on it.

Installed only last Saturday, the bridge, he writes, was funded with $11.4 million from a federal grant program that has been criticized for a shoddy review process that puts politics ahead of technical and safety concerns.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery, or TIGER program, was created as an economic stimulus measure under Obama and morphed into a permanent program, wrote Britschgi.

Yes, it's somehow Obama's fault for something that happened more than a year after he left office. That the kind of thinking at WND that pushed it to the brink of extinction -- and will again if it can't figure that out.
