“President” Donald Trump, pouting because he didn’t get the love he hoped for from his paper towel jump shots, is threatening to withdraw federal support for the relief effort in Puerto Rico.
Said Trump in a tweet, “We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!”
The basis for his claim? Puerto Rico’s financial troubles, which—by the way—are of the federal government’s own making.
This is not normal. Indeed, it is sickening.
I’ll take it further: I’d venture that if Puerto Rico were an island of American nazis and white suprematists, Trump himself would be there leading the relief effort.
He is truly a fragile and hollow man.
Today is Friday the 13th: A scary October day for the 3.4 million (with an m) American citizens who call Puerto Rico home.
