Over the past weekend, Donald Trump let off numerous tweets warring with the NFL over its players having the audacity to kneel in protest. This is what the alt-President focused on instead of the devastation in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria left over 3M United States citizens without power.
The series of tweets that Cheeto finally mustered mentioned Puerto Rico, a US commonwealth, being in debt. A quizzical inclusion considering it doesn’t matter how affluent people are who need food, water and shelter.
“Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble,” he tweeted. “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. Food, water and medical are top priorities – and doing well. #FEMA.”
This, only after other tweets bigging up what the White House looks like, an asinine retweet using the late Pat Tillman to justify his “respect the flag” red herring and other examples of peak tone deafness.
Also, what report has anyone seen that says the people of Puerto Rico are “doing well.”
Now ask yourself, what color are the people in Puerto Rico?
Donald Trump doesn’t care about brown people.
