Today, Donald Trump told Puerto Rico that they dodged a bullet, that the hurricane that hit them was not a real catastrophe, that only a couple of people died, that he, Trump, is doing a great job, but would Puerto Rico please try to spend less money on fixing things up.
Well, I'm certainly glad that problem is managed. Great work!
Oh wait ...
Is it too early to lighten the mood a bit?
It is astounding how the president and his defenders present a view of what's going on in Puerto Rico that is so astoundingly out of touch with what the news from there shows. There is always a bit of fluffing about the quality of work being done, but this is a huge degree of dishonesty from an administration that has been shown to be a master of dishonesty.
