7/fire-erupts-at-trump-tower-in-new -york-city-1-fatality-idd-at-least- 4-hurt.html
A fire at Trump tower left 1 dead, 4 injured. CBS reported that Trump actively lobbied against a sprinkler system that would have saved a man's life. Fox news left out that detail.
That's the second fucking fire in that high rise this year, which means there will probably be an investigation.
And btw an apartment building is not every-man-for-himself economics for you libertarians who want to weigh in. When you have a high rise without external fire escapes or a "smart" ventilation system that can seal all doors and vents instantly upon detecting fire, the smoke from the blaze in a single unit can kill anyone in the floors above, as it did in nyc apartment fires 1998. Some form of fire isolation/mitigation system in high rises is as essential as meat inspection or hospital certification.
And safe and easy evacuation routes are essential, see the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire.
Fires in textile plants are particularly bad. I remember recently there was a fire in...i think it was china...where the owners had padlocked the doors to keep employees from skimping out on work.
The fire doors.
I dunno how many died in that one but it was in the dozens at least.
But this ISN'T "tu quoque." That would be if the Clintons' building fire actually happened, and if Trump and co. had said (in response to criticism) "But what about their fire?" The same would apply if the Clintons' used Trump's fire to justify their own (hypothetical) negligence.
What's being pointed out in >>244248 is an allegation of a double standard, not tu quoque. Claiming that the Clinton's would have been excoriated under similar circumstances that Trump is not being excoriated under (and perhaps, should be?) isn't logically fallacious in the first place.
