What do firehouse and pour forth from mean in this sentence?

But according to recent polling, even the stellar economy can't save Trump from the firehouse of irredeemable qualities that pour forth from him on a daily and, indeed, hourly basis.

Here's the link of the article in which I saw this sentence:
Trump is so abhorrent, even a stellar economy can't save him

It seems to me like a typo of "firehose":

fire hose:

  1. (idiomatic) Any fast, heavy stream (e.g. of information). She felt she was standing in front of a fire hose of instructions, trying to absorb them all with a sponge.

In this context, it just means that Trump constantly exhibits massive amounts of irredeemable qualities, just like a firehose constantly pours out massive amount of water.
