Trumpian excess

Every day in every way imaginable this man embarrasses the United States, its citizens, and even himself (if he had the capacity to realize it).

His performance in Puerto Rico today was appalling.

“Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous — hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, and you look at what happened here, with really a storm that was just totally overpowering, nobody’s ever seen anything like this. What is your death count as of this moment? 17? 16 people certified, 16 people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people and all of our people working together. Sixteen versus literally thousands of people. You can be very proud.

“Hell, little brown people, you think Maria was bad, you shoulda been in Katrina! Your storm wasn’t so big!”

You’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack. We’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico.

Actually, we haven’t. If you recall, within a week of Irma and Harvey Congress appropriated $15B for emergency aid. No such emergency appropriations have been made for victims of Maria in either PR or USVI.

Then there’s this, where the great man passes out largesse to the peasants:

He is a despicable man worthy of no respect.
