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:
