"Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look 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. What is your death count as of this moment? 17? 16 people certified, 16 people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people and all of our people working together. Sixteen versus literally thousands of people. You can be very proud. Everybody around this table and everybody watching can really be very proud of what's taken place in Puerto Rico."


"It's a great trip. Your weather is second to none but every once in a while you get hit. And you really got hit."

You've thrown our budget a little out of whack. We've spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico."

"He started right at the beginning appreciating what we did...He was giving us the highest grades."

"She was saying such nice things about all of the people who have worked so hard. Jenniffer, do you think you can say a little bit about what you said about us?"

"General Kelly is a four star. You don't get any better than a four star."

Even for this President, who has redefined presidential -- and not for the better -- this is a truly remarkable low.
But he wasn't done.
According to an on-the-ground report from CNN's Kevin Liptak, Trump seemed to see himself in a sort of Santa Claus role while handing out supplies to disaster victims. Here's a bit of Liptak's reporting:

There's video of Trump shooting paper towels into the crowd and it does not disappoint pic.twitter.com/KPfJ1AeAqk (https://t.co/KPfJ1AeAqk)

Trump, along with the first lady and the governor, shook hands with the crowd. Trump, still wearing a wind breaker, picked up a can of tinned chicken breast and held it up for the crowd to see.
He handed a pack of batteries to a man, as many in the crowd held up their cell phones.
Trump held up a flashlight and showed it to the crowd, while shaking hands.
The first lady followed close behind.
Trump kept picking up items from tables laden with supplies, showing them to the crowd and handing them to people with outstretched hands.
"There's a lot of love in this room," the President said. "Great people."

Nice beginning, but the punch line seems a little lacking.
Maybe "A dotard visits San Juan. And then the murders started...

"See this can of chicken? Your problems are, like, o-v-e-r". Dotard Trump wouldn't have mentioned the budget impact, except that his buddies may have to take the worst hit on tax reduction.

I was utterly disgusted by the video of Trump throwing rolls of paper towels into the crowd.....

....was this not a replication of the Romans throwing bread into the crowd at the circus?
