Jeez, can they throw him into the ocean??

This is what the orange lying racist (not MY president) said today to the American citizens in Puerto Rico who he dedicated a GOLF trophy to:

President Trump told Puerto Rico officials they should feel proud that hadn’t lost thousands of lives like in “a real catastrophe like Katrina,” and also said the devastated island territory was throwing the nation’s budget “a little out of whack” during his first visit there since Hurricane Maria ravaged the island nearly two weeks ago.

Trump’s remarks Tuesday came as he touched down in San Juan amid harsh criticism of the administration’s slow response to the natural disaster, and after he praised himself earlier in the day for the “great job” and “A-plus” performance he said the administration deserved for its response to Maria.

“Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you at the tremendous — hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, and you look at what happened here, with really a storm that was just totally overpowering, nobody’s ever seen anything like this,” Trump said, before turning to a local official to ask how many people had died in storm. “What is your death count as of this moment? 17? 16 people certified, 16 people versus in the thousands.”

95% have no electricity. Only about half half clean drinking water. Some parts of Puerto Rico are still inaccessible. Who knows what rescuers will find when they finally get there??Has he ever heard of lawless desperate people and cholera?? Or does that only happen in Rwanda?

He is an disgrace. He *should* be an embarrassment to anyone who voted for him. This person should come with a warning label for dangerous levels of stupidity and a possible choking hazard.

It’s unforgivable.

  1. I feel like I need Pepcid every day because the vomit inducing one just never gives us a break.

    • Never vote for president anyone you wouldn’t feel comfortable inviting to dinner.

  2. According to Vox, the death count hasn’t been updated in six days and is probably much higher.

  3. Stephanie Ruhle (MSNBC) was visibly disgusted by her guests today, one was a smug Republican bastard congress critter in DC and the other was country music singer, Amy Grant. Disgusting. Every fucker Republican I have seen on TV talking about LV makes me sick to my stomach. Apparently the Junior is excited about silencers, saw it in a video. Think about what a silencer would have done in LV situation, you fucking neanderthals! It is already bad that he could buy a mod for 99 bucks or so — why are they even available so freely and for so less money? I think the Democrats should just cut an ad after ad about these incidents and maybe have ER and trauma doctors talk about them — make a daisy ad. Don’t focus on legislation but just show the after effects these traumatic events and how the Republicans don’t care to do anything.

  4. Orangutan was also throwing toilet paper rolls at the crowd in PR today and oh, he left an hour ahead of schedule.

  5. Why do Democrats talk about gun control in the abstract? I mentioned running ads like daisy ad. Here are a couple of ideas: 1) connect what the Republicans are doing with CHIP to Sandy Hook — single mom, mentally ill teenage son; connect it with ACA repeal; 2) connect the silencer bill they are talking about right now, and the video I saw of Don Jr. talking about it with what happened in LV; show how easy it is to modify the legally available guns to automatic; show what the Rs are doing which is nothing and the ramifications of it.

    It took this guy to be right in the middle of it to change his mind:

  6. My comment keeps going away. Can you fish me out, RD?
