Trump Dedicates Golf Trophy to Citizens Dying Under His Watch

No that is not a fucking joke.

Trump dedicates golf trophy to hurricane victims

"On behalf of all of the people of Texas, and all of the people — if you look today and see what is happening, how horrible it is but we have it under really great control — Puerto Rico and the people of Florida who have really suffered over this last short period of time with the hurricanes, I want to just remember them," the president said. 
"And we're going to dedicate this trophy to all of those people that went through so much that we love — a part of our great state, really part of our great nation," he continued.

Couple things.

First, IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT UNDER CONTROL. Not in Puerto Rico. People are dying and more people will die soon specifically because of a failure of government. The thing is, people have donated a ton of food and water and money, enough to keep people from starving or dying of thirst for a bit, at least. But there is no one delivering this to all the people stranded in their homes without electricity, without fuel for their cars, without any money to buy anything anyway.

Lord Dampnut has resisted helping the people of Puerto Rico from the start. First he refused to  suspend the Jones act because it might slightly reduce the obscene profits made by shipping companies or something. It was finally suspended, but only for 10 days. Turns out the Jones Act is basically a way of oppressing/sucking all the money out of Puerto Rico.

Now he's refusing to send more aid because "business interests" (????) despite the mayor of San Juan literally begging him to send help because people are dying. There are reports of literally everyone in critical condition in hospitals dying. Backup generators are running out of fuel. It is utterly apocalyptic.

But instead of sending troops from some of our massive ridiculous military or anyone else to effectively distribute the supplies that individuals donated out of the good of our hearts, he does nothing but dedicate a FUCKING GOLF TROPHY that he got because HE WENT FUCKING GOLFING WHILE PUERTO RICO IS DYING INSTEAD OF DOING ANYTHING TO HELP THEM.

Meanwhile San Juan mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz, is wading through waist-high water with a fucking bullhorn trying to save her people and Trump is trashing her on Twitter from the comfort of his suite on his golfing vacation (on of many) for daring to criticize him. He says she has poor leadership while he golfs instead of doing anything to save his people from death. Everything he says is either a complete lie, massive hypocrisy, or somehow both. He is the worst fucking person in the entire world.
