    Yeah, and just watch, because of Trump's slow response, his claim of only having 18 fatalities is gonna jump dramatically when they get to all the towns that are still shut off from aid.

    Puerto Rico is run by a group of corrupt assholes who care more about their nice cushy homes than they do for the people they are supposed to represent. Katrina wiped out New Orleans because the corrupt assholes there stole the money that was supposed to be used to fix the various dikes around the city and bought nice playthings for themselves. Fuck the people.

    That's the problem with dingbats, they listen to what the assholes tell them, but then never check on what they actually do. Puerto Rico is the same problem. Politicians and bureaucrats lining their pockets while ignoring the infrastructure that would make the lives of their people better. I'm not joking when i say 90 billion dollars could buy everything on that island two times over. How is it that you can't put two and two together?

    In name only. It is run like any other third world shithole. Venezuela is one of the wealthiest countries on the planet, but you would never know it as the socialist politicians have raped the wealth to give themselves a nice cushy lifestyle while they kick back and watch the peons starve.

    Good job Trump...At first people thought he didnt care about the island (thats surrounded by water btw, thanks Trump) all because while the island was being destroyed he was on the golf course. But boy did he prove them wrong by telling them to fix it was going to be expensive and reminding them they were poor, so poor. And then saying their deaths werent bad if you look at the dead bodies being uncovered as he spoke as statistics.

    Trump continues to go after everyone and anyone for any reason....unless its Russia, they're so cewl brah.

    Heh, wonder what he'll do in Vegas? Toss out boxes of band-aids to the shooting victims? Claim they got it easy compared to a real shooting like Babi Yar?

    I wouldn't, because I know that Puerto Ricans are white.

    But based on how he acted, it would have been better if he hadn't gone.

    He acts like a king and expects his subjects to genuflect as he approaches.
