Of course we've known this for 10 months, but JFC

In conclusion, Puerto Rico is a land of contrasts.

I'm within driving distance of Lexington, MA.

If I go take a shiat on Jill Stein's lawn could someone put together a GoFundMe to spring me from jail?

Big Water, the lesser known little cousin of Big Pharm.

I'd love to see a word cloud of just his adjectives and adverbs in his unscripted speeches and tweets.  Break it down by time period and compare to the scandal of the week day hour.

Big Water.  Like Big Oil, or Big Pharma.

This was all brand new information to his supporters.

So Puerto Rico is 1000 miles away from the nearest port, right? So a ship traveling at 20 knots - which I think is a fairly reasonable speed for a decent-sized ship - takes 50 hours to travel that distance. That's a little over two days.

It's been over a week since Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico. What's the holdup?

I assume we have all learned the lesson that casting a "protest vote", even in a state you think is safe, is a stupid farking thing to do when life and liberty are at hazard.

A 5 year old is also right when he says "drinking pee is bad for you". What is your point?

cranked: Government of the morons, by the morons, for the morons.


And to the morons, this sounds statesman-like.

I've got to admit, sometimes I envy morons. It's got to be a lot less painful listening to stuff like this.

He's a child.  Like, there must be some genuine disability going on here.  He doesn't speak as well as my 6 year old, but he is better than my two year old, so...4 ish?  Our president is 4.  The man with the launch codes is 4.

I'm okay with weak grasp on spoken English - but it seems like we're starting from scratch.

FTFA: The president said the U.S. has to send truck drivers, as local drivers there are tending to their families.

I'm a dummy. I'm barely paying attention and I knew 2 days ago that they need truck drivers. WTF?

Infrastructure. No way to transport from the ports is what i've heard.

From the ports on the continental US, or from San Juan to the rest of the island?

The president said this is probably something never seen before, and local governments are "totally unable" to handle it alone.

Yeah, never had a hurricane hit Puerto Rico before.

Seriously, if a hurricane hit, say, Utah, this would make sense. But Puerto Rico has seen hurricanes before. What they're NEVER seen is a President who waits over a week to even consider sending aid, and is more involved in a slap fight with a professional sports league than saving lives.

In this case you can just say retarded.

Ugh, was he reading that? Did a speech writer actually write that for him? What the fark is going on?

Only a few more hours until I get off of work so I can drown this all away with the sweet numbness that bourbon and beer can deliver.

Fox News will fact check this thoroughly, decide that it is true, and declare Trump the greatest statesman in American history.
