Former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell expressed her hopes that Hurricane Dorian makes a direct hit on Mar-a-Lago, President Trump’s resort in Palm Beach.
The storm, which is headed towards Florida, is now a Category 2 hurricane but is expected to develop into a Category 4 over the Labor Day weekend, according to The Weather Channel.
“#Dorian poses peril through rain and wind in Puerto Rico and D.R. now, and a #majorhurricane threat to the East Coast this weekend. Florida risk, Carolinas in cross hairs. Prepare please,” tweeted the Earth Institute’s Andrew Revkin.
Instead of hoping all those in harm’s way stay safe, Campbell retweeted the message saying she’s “rooting for a direct hit on Mar a Lago!”
Many took the former PM to task for her “hateful” comment.
While she may have only served as prime minister for less than five months after Brian Mulroney resigned in 1993, some pointed out that she still has her hand in Canadian politics, serving as a senior aide to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
This crazy woman - former PM Kim Campbell is a senior aide to Justin Trudeau, in charge of Supreme Court appointments in Canada!— Leonard Roxon (@LeonardRoxon) August 30, 2019
Is it any wonder why our justice system is going down the toilet???
May God grant her wish to come true upon her own family and herself!!!
Who is Kim Campbell? She seems like an inhuman person. Hoping people die or get hurt is sick.— SunnyNorm (@PRSunnyNorm) August 30, 2019
What the heck is wrong with you. There are real people who live and work there. BUFFS!!— Carl Souchereau (@SouchMan) August 29, 2019
Wishing ill unto others is evil. Get a grip, lady.— Sylvia (@SylviaGam) August 30, 2019
Sooooo, you’re saying you hope the innocent folks working there and live in the surrounding area are subjected to catastrophic event that they can’t control because of politics. Got it.— William S. (@onehandman) August 29, 2019
Respect for humanity in 2019 has been cancelled.
Campbell responded to user Carl Souchereau's tweet, writing, "As there are in Puerto Rico- sorry you don’t get snark- but Trump’s indifference to suffering is intolerable! Wd also help if he tackled climate change which is making hurricanes more destructive! Instead, he will remove limits on methane! Get a grip!"

This isn't the first time liberals have wished a hurricane would take out Mar-a-Lago. In 2017, progressives were similarly hoping that Hurricane Irma would destroy the club.
