    What was the implication there, that Hurricane Maria's devastation on the island isn't?

    Secondly, why did this man say to the devastated island of Puerto Rico that "they threw the economy out of whack?"

    Lastly, why did he resort to casually throwing paper towels randomly into the crowd like they were a bunch of 5 year old kids waiting to get candy?

    Is this man serious?

    Because he said "thousands" died.

    I read it was 1800 which was bad enough. But no one really knows how many died from the storm and how many died from Bush/GOP neglect.

    Katrina was a worse catastrophe because so many died. He's right about that.

    He attempted some levity. He failed.

    They got a pallet of paper towels in? Good thing it wasn't water bottles or bags of ice!

    Because Trump has never cared for anything or anybody but himself.

    No he isn't. We have no president, this orange-turd wanders around pretending to do the job but it's really just his best platform to harm people of color. Other than white that is. He is a disgusting pig.
