Hey, I suppose El Dotard knows a thing or two about causing disasters. Gotta take his word for it.

Oh for feck sake. You know if one doesn't think of DoNald as the POTUS but an aging actor who says nutty and inappropriate things it would be easy to tune him out.

"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," Trump said, before turning to a local official to ask how many people had died in storm. "What is your death count as of this moment? 17? 16 people certified, 16 people versus in the thousands."

Trump then praised officials in the room over the death toll.

"You can be very proud of all of your people, all of our people working together," he said.

The president also seemed to fault the small island for imperiling the United States's budget by requiring hurricane relief funds, saying, "I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you've thrown our budget a little out of whack."

I suggest instead of heading to another taxpayer funded weekend golfing, we might drop him and the missus of at one of those quaint mountain towns with no services.

He's like a crazy old actress wearing age inappropriate clothes at the grocery store.
"There's a lot of love in this room"
He's surrounded by stage lights, in the frozen food section, strutting past the frozen pies, all the lights shining on him.
So much love.

No way. He said that?

Yes way and more. The need for validation of his performance from hurricane victims is simply obscene.

THAT'S entertainment!

http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/353689-trump-tells-puerto-ricans-they-dont-need-flashlights-while-most-of

Video and press reports from the event show Trump tossing paper towels into the crowd. He is also seen handing out flashlights.

“Flashlights? You don’t need ‘em anymore,” Trump said. “You don’t need ‘em.”

It was unclear what exactly Trump meant when he suggested people no longer needed flashlights. More than 90 percent of the island remains without electricity following the Category 4 storm, which severely damaged Puerto Rico's electrical grid.

When the people on that island get their connection to the world back, they are going to be shocked to learn what a wonderful job the trump people had done.

Or they believe that Trump has done all he could/should & that the Puerto Ricans are unwilling to help themselves - IOW - they believe Trump's BS.

I could be interpreting this poll wrong, but what the heck. Republicans think DoNald is a strong leader, although not level headed and not that honest. Sounds like an invitation to be effed over.

One would think but in order to maintain the attention on him he has to provide new absurdity. More to come.

How the hell did it ever come to this.

Half the country tolerated the ridiculous (aka, religious) right saying "we have to respect their 'beliefs'" and the other half cynically supported them to use them..

Unless the Democrats wake up & choose a candidate too many independents clamor for, all the folks who voted 45 the first time, will do so again. The other possibility is the Republicans do something like the Super Delegates of the Democrats - and that's not likely. Even Peb, who (says he) deplores 45 (but HRC is worse), is against Super Delegates.
