Well, he sure made up for that today. Here are a few tweets from our leader:
"Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble..
...It's old electrical grid, which was in terrible shape, was devastated. Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars....
...owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with"
Yes, you read that right. For the first time in the history of the United States, the President responded to a natural disaster which is causing massive suffering, by attacking the victims, and showing more concern for the rich guys that might stand to lose money from the disaster than for the victims. There just are not words in any language to express how evil and degraded this is. And yet, his party is giving him a total pass on this bestial behavior, because to them, as to him, some rich guys losing money is a far more horrible thing than masses losing their lives.
Oh, and being Trump, he could not leave things there, but had to add a disgusting lie:
"Food, water and medical are top priorities - and doing well."
Of course, these "priorities" are not doing well, they are doing horribly; the Washington Post reports that tens of thousands may die, but I guess if Trump just denies that reality, he and his party have zero responsibility to do a thing about it. These people can suffer and die, because they are not part of his hate filled base, and they are not about to cough up millions to keep Republicans in office; and most of them are not white. So, screw them. Just claim that everything is just fine, and blame them for their suffering as you walk away.
And don't worry, Republicans, because our mainstream press is sure to treat this unbelievable atrocity as though it is just standard behavior for a President of the United States.
