No Long Lines For You

The loss of life, it’s always tragic, but it’s been incredible, the results that we’ve had with respect to loss of life. People can’t believe how successful that has been, relatively speaking.

President Tiny Twitter Fingers lashed out at the Mayor of San Juan on Saturday morning using thinly veiled racist language to disparage Puerto Ricans who are in desperate need of help after Hurricane Maria.

Trump, tweeting from a golf hurricane-maria-2017-billboard-1548course in New Jersey (because where else would the president be when citizens of the U.S. are facing a humanitarian crisis?), went on a rant early Saturday morning after Mayor Yulín Cruz of San Juan desperately begged for help on Friday. 

“I am going to do what I never thought I would do,” said Cruz. “I am begging, begging anyone who can hear us to save us from dying.”

She also accused the Trump administration of “killing us with inefficiency.”

I guess the president didn’t like her tone.

“The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump,” U Bum twitlered. “Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help.

“They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort,” the filthy racist animal twitlered around 7:30 a.m. Saturday. He also said that there were “10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.”

“Fantastic” would not be the word anyone would use in terms of the federal response in PR; and yet when news outlets reported these facts, the president called them “fake” (of course).

To even assume that American citizens in the throes of a natural disaster “want everything done for them” just plays into the racist trope of people of color being lazy and unwilling to help themselves.

Of course Trump got stomped on Twitter this am:

Blood Coming Out Of His Wherever

I was at Mar-a-Lago and we had this incredible ball, the Red Cross Ball, in Palm Beach, Florida. And we had the Marines. And the Marines were there, and it was terrible because all these rich people, they’re there to support the Marines, but they’re really there to get their picture in the Palm Beach Post. So you have all these really rich people, and a man, about 80 years old—very wealthy man, a lot of people didn’t like him—he fell off the stage.

So what happens is, this guy falls off right on his face, hits his head, and I thought he died. And you know what I did? I jjge1ncreosftkf8zyj3said, “Oh my God, that’s disgusting,” and I turned away. I couldn’t, you know, he was right in front of me, and I turned away. I didn’t want to touch him. He’s bleeding all over the place, I felt terrible. You know, beautiful marble floor, didn’t look like it. It changed color. Became very red. And you have this poor guy, 80 years old, laying on the floor unconscious, and all the rich people are turning away. “Oh my God! This is terrible! This is disgusting!” And you know, they’re turning away. Nobody wants to help the guy. His wife is screaming—she’s sitting right next to him, and she’s screaming.

What happens is, these ten Marines from the back of the room, they come running forward, they grab him, they put the blood all over the place—it’s all over their uniforms—they’re taking it, they’re swiping it, they ran him out, they created a stretcher. They call it a human stretcher, where they put their arms out with, like, five guys on each side. 

I was saying, “Get that blood cleaned up! It’s disgusting!” The next day, I forgot to call him to say he’s okay. It’s just not my thing.
