"Puerto Rico survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making." says Sharyl Attkisson. A total lack of.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2017
...accountability say the Governor. Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes. Congress to decide how much to spend....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2017
Because P.R. is surrounded by water! Big Water! Ocean Water! If it were only landlocked, like Afghanistan, maybe we could keep troops there for a decade or more. But you know, things were bad before the hurricane, you can't expect us to do anything about that now. They should have foreseen two hurricanes would walk over their island and destroy everything. Not our fault! Sad!...We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2017
Notice the POTUS is getting his information, not from the intelligence agencies that could supply it, or even FEMA, but from Sinclair Broadcasting TV host Sharyl Attkisson, which was merely a commentary, so Atkisson could say whatever she wanted to. Wait, isn't that bad?
Presumably she didn't direct any ire toward Trump, so no hatred there. Ire toward Puerto Rico and the citizens who are still without water there? Hey, perfectly justified! I mean, it's not like we can help them forever! It's been almost a month! What more do they want? Of course, this is the funny part:The Fake News Is going all out in order to demean and denigrate! Such hatred!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2017
Well, for about three weeks; then we get tired and resentful, apparently. Either that, or Puerto Ricans aren't "real Americans," so they have no goodness, no courage, no love: fuck 'em!In even the darkest moments, the light of our people has shown through their goodness, their courage and their love. #USA🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/8JK8aM2a1L— Donald J.

And I just have to add:
“I watched Colin Kaepernick and I thought it was terrible. And then it got bigger and bigger and started mushrooming,” Trump told Hannity.They FIRED him, you moron! He no longer plays for the NFL, on any team! He was let go last year. And yet players continued to kneel this year! Honestly, how stupid are you?
“And frankly the NFL should have suspended him for one game and he would have never done it again,” he continued. “They could have then suspended him for two games and they could have suspended him again if he did it a third time for the season, and you would never have had a problem. But I will tell you — you cannot disrespect our country, our flag, our anthem, you cannot do that.”
I hope Steve Bannon is right; I hope there's only a 30% chance this putz stays in office through the end of the year.
