Sprinklers needed.

Image result for trump tower brassner fire images         "New York (CNN)A fire broke out at Trump Tower on Saturday, leaving one man dead and six firefighters injured, the New York City Fire Department said.

Police identified the man killed as Todd Brassner, 67, a resident of the building's 50th floor. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition but later died, said spokeswoman Angelica Conroy of the Fire Department.

Brassner was unconscious and unresponsive when firefighters pulled him out, the New York Police Department said. The medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death.

The fire was contained to the 50th floor of the tower, located on Fifth Avenue in New York. It was ruled under control around 9 p.m., two hours after it was originally reported, the FDNY tweeted.
    Six firefighters suffered injuries that are not life threatening, Conroy said.
    No members of the Trump family were at the tower during the fire, Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

    The upper-level residential floors are not equipped with fire sprinklers, according to Nigro. When asked to comment on the President's tweet, Nigro said the building "sure stood up quite well."
    His son, Eric Trump, also congratulated the firefighters before news of the death, saying "the @FDNY and @NYPD are truly some of the most incredible people anywhere!"

    Brassner's apartment was valued at $2.5 million, according to bankruptcy documents from 2015. Brassner had an extensive collection of prized works of art, including a portrait of himself by Andy Warhol, as well as hundreds of guitars and ukeleles, according to the bankruptcy documents.
    The fire at Trump Tower comes three months after a minor fire broke out in a cooling tower on the roof of the building, according to CNN affiliate WCBS-TV. Two people were injured in the fire, which officials said may have been caused by electrical heaters inside the cooling tower.

    They should've just let tr**p Tower burn down. That delinquent masquerading as the President can just afford to have a new one built.

    Todd Brassner was just another micro dick white boy (and a faggy looking one at that). That wasn't too much of a tragedy. The real sad part was that Butt Trumpet wasn't in the part of the building that took the worst damage.

    That's nothing compared to the destruction that negroes cause in their own ghettoes, or whenever they move into white neighborhoods.

    Russian pee hookers are looking for work. Drumpfuck can hire them to golden shower fires in his buildings. He has experience with that.

    Wonder how Drumpf will cheat insurance companies on this fire?

    This is more of a forewarning of the effects of Pruitt dismantling the EPA, of course at Fergus' direction. They probably won't even be around any more when people start dying from what they did to the air, the water, the soil, and the food.

    Sprinklers are indeed expensive, but sometimes if you want people to live safely, you need them. We had them in our warehouse space on Peralta street, but not in the foundry building we lived in before we moved here. That turned out to be why we had to move, as there was a small fire in the facade of the building, and Bayer, who wanted the land the building was on, pressured the city to turn off the electricity until either sprinklers were installed or the tenants moved out. So we had no electricity from late November 2015 until we moved in February 2016. It sucked, but in retrospect I'm really glad we got out of there, and I'm not sure we would have done it that quickly otherwise.

    But after the "Ghost Ship" fire, everyone was too scared of more folks getting burned up to let stuff like that slide, and even though thousands of folks in the East Bay live in housing that doesn't meet the building codes, and have been doing so for years and years, the owners are too scared of liability to let even very good tenants stay.

    Hundreds of them have been evicted from the lowest cost situations going, and guess what? Most of them are now homeless.

    I do know some builders who are on a mission to upgrade living spaces to meet code for folks who live in places like converted commercial property that doesn't cost a couple grand a month to live in. They have gotten approval from the city for six warehouse spaces so far, and two of them required sprinklers.

    And Fergus? He couldn't care less about sprinklers or burned up motherfuckers so long as they don't affect his poll numbers or property values.

    And the burned up guy? He was one of Warhol's art dealers back in the day.

    My goodness here's so much censorship going on! Now they want to censor all kinds of things on Facebook too??? What's going on???

    A more apt metaphor would be: black ghettos are America, and black gangbangers are the American people. (Of course we all know that most non-black Americans are too smart to be in gangs.)

    Except for stoopid fucking wasicu wasteys who roam the country kicking the elderly and poors off food stamps and Social Security for shits and giggles. They make up nearly half the population and they ain't none too bright.

    "Poor Mr. Brassner" had been trying to sell his apartment since Drumpf took office. No takers–the Trump name wasn't and isn't a hot seller in NYC. Brasser's friends know he was "trapped" there in more ways than one.

    mike from iowa said...

    Drumpf hotels have a policy that employees cannot hire relatives. The WH has a policy like that but stoopid fucking Drumpf can't read.

    Watch Drumpf sue the dead guy for not giving appropriate notice he was checking out.

    A grotesque bloated caricature
    trump wallowing in his bed
    his tower is a burning
    he simply can not sue the dead

    who needs sprinkler systems
    the bloated billionaire has said
    my insurance, covers everything
    including, even all the dead

    a gambler rolls the dice
    shields his cards, takes his chances
    the bloated orange caricature
    just shucks, jives, and dances

    he doesn't even bluff
    as he rapes the game
    the rules don't exist
    the Orange bigot has no shame!

    No, but censorship of LYING black people is awesome.

    And so is censorship of lying white people, which is why Fox News needs to go. Boycott their advertisers until they have no advertisers anymore. If wingnuts want to hear utter bullshit pretending to be news, they can pay for that junk out of their own damn pockets. The rest of us won’t continue to subsidize it.

    Hahahahaha, Trump’s lawyer’s office just got raided by the eff bee eye.

    Stormy Daniels scandal, meet Bob Mueller.

    mike from iowa said...

    Be interesting to see what kind of sprinklers Drumpfuck now needs to put out this dumpster fire. Former fed official says the FBI needs to believe Cohen is involved in a crime and that evidence of that crime could be found in his office or residence to get a warrant to seize records.

    Wonder if Vlad is on speed dial. Drumpfuck is holding out for hero. He's holding out til the end of the night. And he's gotta be good and he's gotta strong and he's gotta be fresh from the fight.

    Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Stoopid fucking wingnuts stole thiis election, stole a Scotus seat and thought everything was in place to install a right wing dicklicking dicktater and rule America with an iron fist.

    When you get to decide what a "lie" is, it is awesome.

    All censors say that.

    Mark Levin: "I believe the damage Robert Mueller and these people have done to the body politic with these police state tactics is irreversible."

    Sadly, I agree. This ends badly. Think I'm joking, overstating? I'm not. When the electoral process no longer works, obedience ends.

    mike from iowa said...

    Poor widdlw stoopid fucking wingnuts forgotten how off the rails Ken Starr got in Whitewater investigation of Prez Clinton?

    What goes around comes around except Mueller is playing by the rules and has the justice department and US attorneys assisting him with this legal process. Fuck the whiny wingnuts right in their left ear.

    ”Mark Levin: "I believe the damage Robert Mueller and these people have done to the body politic with these police state tactics is irreversible."

    Republicans cheated their way through the 2016 election and now they’re complaining about democracy being undermined? That’s rich.

    They’re lucky there hasn’t been a mass uprising with furious mobs storming Congress and the White House to murder them. (Yet. Could still happen if Trump tries to fire Mueller to stay out of prison.)

    This is what happens when you elect a guy with shady Russian ties who refuses to release his tax returns. Next time choose a better candidate. Elect a clown expect a circus.
