Here is my guess -
He thought Puerto Rico was it's own Central American country filled with the same type of people the wall is supposed to keep out, and not an unincorporated U.S. territory island, hence he gave no farks about it.  Then people had to carefully explain why everyone was so farking pissed and now Trump is explaining that wow man, oceans are like... you know.  Oceans.  Nothing we can do there, you know... oceans.
He was so caught up with creating the NFL distraction from the failing health care bill, Russia, and everything else, that he pretty much just internally assumed "Puerto Rico? Yeah, brown people, fark em" and it is finally blowing up in his face with the rest of it.
Christ, what a farking moron.  Thanks you brave 62 million patriots that saved us from the hazards of a sane and competent presidency.
This joke is getting real farking old real quick.

You know what's so great about the Trump Presidency?
He shows that the American people will take it as rough and hard as the GOP wants to give it just so long as they keep saying and doing crude and offensive shiat .. which is what the GOP is sort of all about anyway

Checkmate, Democracy

We reflexively post those cats because we desperately need to be reminded that there are beings out there smarter and more ethically sound than Drumpf.

I have a cat that chases and bites his own tail (and gets pissed when it hurts), but I would still trust him to be president more than Trump.

God, God, I hope so.

Because there's no other term for the alternative to that explanation but genocide.

That would require the admins to personally check each link. Which would leave them very little time to troll.

Imma slap that dude in the face with my balls. He might enjoy it. I've heard Trump is pretty gay inside.

I guess this means we can't go to war with North Korea, since it's in a bigger ocean...

"The Governor has been so incredible..."

Huh, Trump is giving someone else cre--

"...in his statements about the job we're doing."

Ah, nevermind. What a shiat-hearted farkwad.

Please tell me Mr. Tangerine Man didn't actually say that.

I think we're going to have Post Trump Stress Disorder (PTSD) if this keeps up.  Just the sheer amount of idiocy...with no apparent consequences... is damaging my psyche.

/I think I'm kidding...
//but now I'm not sure.

Does anyone still not understand? He will not take responsibility for any of his mistakes EVER! He can't. Refusing to admit that he is wrong is a classic trait of narcissistic personality disorder. You have a better chance of the Atlantic Ocean releasing a written statement taking responsibility for Trunp's bungled response to the storm than Trump apologizing for not taking action to help the people of Puerto Rico.

The longer this administration is in power, the more I understand those small towns that elect dogs as mayor.

Who in the White House will translate President Trump's words about Puerto Rico? The President knows how to use words but not in a comprehensible way.

With terrible jokes like that, there ain't no way I'm ever going to love you.

Will the Trumper humpers be here to explain in great detail how it's really about problems with infrastructure and Trump is innocent of any wrongdoing.

JFC.

Americans are dying due to inadequate action, and this asshole starts a Twitter war with some athletes.

Depending on the type of bankruptcy, they might get their money back. Or they could have gotten horribly screwed, with $0 in total bond payments, and an increase of .04% to its debt. Ms Green should have mentioned the terms of the bond, and the terms of the bankruptcy. Makes it look like she just read that somewhere and is parroting it back.
