Trump persecutes Puerto Rico for having the gall to have a hurricane and lose 2000 people on his watch.

The man is not upholding any one of the moral virtues he simply does not have.

If you study Trump's true believers, you soon discover that his nastiness is something they value and admire. What's strange, however, is how bent out of shape they become when you point out what they value and admire.

Here's hoping that the Puerto Rican diaspora to Florida, which Trump helped cause, bites him in the ass come November.

Lots of faux indignation from people whose particular brand of being human is heavily laced with their astonishing inability to have empathy for others. A nastier bunch of il-informed, conspiracy-loving goobers and grifters would be hard to find this side of an Area 51 support group.

It's possible that Trump wittheld aid because he's a petty racist POS and that PR's emergency manager was incompetent. The two are not mutually exclusive.

Of course they aren't.

A feature of Trumpism is that everyone must get what he deserves, except Donald Trump.

Maybe PR couldn't accept any more aid because the warehouse were full.

If this isn't punished swiftly and severely than there's no justice left in this crazy mixed up world.

This isn't a partisan dilemma - it's a humanitarian catastrophe.

Um....when was the first time?

"This isn't a partisan dilemma - it's a humanitarian catastrophe."

It's ok, the people there are brown.

You're right.

A warehouse with $200,000 in unused supplies is the perfect reason to withhold billions of dollars in aid that people need.

Lets compare it to Katrina...

The Feds threw out $100 million in unused ice and built 25,000 mobile homes they ended up not being able to use because of their own regulations. The Feds own estimation put fraud at $1-2 billion.

Oops! I forgot! Bush never existed...or was he a Democrat? I forget the talking point these days that you people use.

Of course there are going to be huge mistakes. Get over it. But Trump is still at fault for withholding billions in aid that the territory needed. Hell, many of my law firms don't there didn't have power for 3-6 months.

It took her this long to FINALLY stop trying to get votes and cater to her party, and actually help the PR people by following the supply chain and making corrections where necessary. I mean, I guess it's a great tactic to do nothing, just blame it all on someone who has very little to do with actually getting the help to the people so the people turn a blind eye to the person who actually holds that responsibility. There really should be a lot more uproar over this. I've seen leaders like her get fired for a lot less serious issues...

Like "The civil war was only about states' rights" that Dems used back in the 1860s, they use the same subterfuge to hide their own racism and get away with it. What better way to be a racist group than working hard to convince people they are on their side. Now that they have the masses believing it for some reason, they are free to be as racist as they want.

Whataboutism noted.

Decades of corruption affecting the power grid and infrastructure...Trump's fault again!
