But are they standing for the anthem? Better check before helping.

While three and a half million American citizens in Puerto Rico spent the weekend with no electricity, little access to drinkable water, and fewer “houses” than you would want in such a situation (some areas have seen 90 percent of houses destroyed), Donald Trump was too busy dealing with a football emergency to notice. Monday night, somebody on his staff must have finally mentioned to Donald Trump that things in Puerto Rico were really bad after Hurricane Maria hit the island — and that his continued silence on it was starting to draw pissy questions. Trump took the message to heart, and cranked up his Twitter to spread the message: Puerto Rico is a very bad place that clearly had no business getting hit by a hurricane. What were those people even thinking, getting hit by a hurricane like that?

Then Trump got back to what really matters: Yelling at John McCain, and then at the NFL some more.

Damn, Puerto Rico, why couldn’t you be more like Texas and Florida, and not be an embarrassment like that? Sort of makes a person wonder what it is about Puerto Rico that Trump sees differently than Florida and Texas, huh? But let’s be fair — he had a really difficult time acting like he cared about people in either of those disasters, too. But we don’t recall him actively scolding them for getting hurricaned.

Also, he’s not quite right about the food, water and medical “doing well,” either: Puerto Rico’s governor, Ricardo Rosselló, said on MSNBC Monday night that only 40 percent of the island’s residents have access to potable water. Reuters reports that Puerto Rico’s hospitals “are in critical condition”:

After the power went out, back-up generators at some hospitals failed quickly. Other hospitals are running critically low on diesel. Fuel is so precious that deliveries are made by armed guards to prevent looting, according to Dr. Ivan Gonzalez Cancel, a cardiovascular surgeon and director of the heart transplant program at Centro Cardiovascular.

“Another hospital wants to transfer two critical patients here because they don’t have electricity,” Gonzalez Cancel said. “We can’t take them. We have the same problem.”

Another doctor warned, “If this is not taken care of, people are going to start dying.” Generators are running out of fuel and many patients desperately need to be evacuated to hospitals on the mainland. So you know, doing well. Better do something about that debt!

Needless to say, the Internet Was Not Pleased:

But don’t worry! Donald Trump is staying on top of things, and he’s confident that at least one official in Puerto Rico said something nice about him. Or about the government, at least:

He followed that with a demand that the NFL “set a rule that you can’t kneel during our National Anthem!”

Man knows his priorities.

    We’re really just a short step away from Trump saying that residents of Puerto Rico are being “uppity” for wanting potable water.

    • Why, ditch water was good enough for old man Trump’s renters. You kids and your pot water.

      Maybe they should have bought more $50 POTUS caps if they wanted more help.

    I keep seeing people say this is Trump’s Katrina, but I think that assumes most Americans care about Puerto Rico. It might be fair to say that every day I’m a bit more disgusted by “Real ‘Mericans”

    • BreakingDeadMen

      In a sense, I think it’s a fair comparison. Katrina showed the patronage and inattention to detail at the heart of the Bush administration. This shows the utter emptiness of the Trump administration, the void the government has become.

      • Oblios_Cap

        See? Government doesn’t work!

  • Ghenghis McCann

    What a perfect opportunity for Iran or North Korea to offer to send aid to Puerto Rico, just to see Trump’s head explode.

    • BreakingDeadMen

      It has to come in on US ships, so they couldn’t even take it…it would underscore that stupid law as well.

      • Robbertjan Brandenburg

        Why is that?

        • Daniel

          It’s the law.

          That’s literally the reason.

          • Robbertjan Brandenburg

            So if a Marine vessel of an allied nation that happens to be in the neighbourhood like the Dutch or the French right now helping out our own Islands and we decide to send first aid and supplies we wouldn’t be allowed to ship it off?

          • mackafritz

            Not without paying to do it.

          • Robbertjan Brandenburg

            So the earthquake I now feel is actuallly Kafka spinning like a fidget spinner in his grave?

          • Daniel

            It’s what he would have wanted.

        • Oblios_Cap

          Their ships just aren’t exceptional enough, I guess.

        • mackafritz

          There is some stupid law that only US ships can enter Puerto Rico without paying huge tariffs. I think it goes back to the 1920’s or 30’s.

          • Robbertjan Brandenburg

            So time for another amendment?

          • Dr. Rrrrrobotnik

            No amendment necessary, just repealing a law that’s wildly outdated if it was ever necessary in the first place.

            I believe the law was put in place originally to make sure Puerto Rico didn’t become economically dependent on anyone else: the world was looking scarier in 1930, so the isolationist U.S. started battening down the hatches on its surrounding territories. No one wanted an island near the U.S. dependent on a foreign power (that wasn’t us), so the tariffs were put up. It also conveniently benefited U.S. manufacturers, who became Puerto Rico’s sole supplier of everything but the air they breathed.

          • Oblios_Cap

            It’s sort of like how some NGOs are made to only use the products that their donors produce when doing their work; that way none of the money ends up in the hands of the locals where it would do the most good.

        • BreakingDeadMen

          It’s some dumb law. I guess it is to keep Puerto Rico from getting too independent, carving their own trade deals with neighbors outside of the overall US structure ? People have suggested it needs to be suspended during the emergency at the very least.

          • Robbertjan Brandenburg

            Right now I think nobody would applaud breaking the law. You would think Trump would like that so when he is on trial he can say everybody was doing it.

          • BreakingDeadMen

            He’ll find some example of that somewhere without having to help brown people.

  • Rick Hill

    He didn’t yell at texans for building their homes in flood prone regions because, you know, free market and no need to worry about the suckers who buy your properties. Also, too, don’t tell us where to build in the future, either. Because that’s why we have federal flood insurance. which don’t tell us we have to buy it if we don’t want to. And, get government offf our backs and just let them put money in our pockets…but not those people. You know the kind I’m talking about.

    Whew!

    • jesterpunk

    • Mr. Blobfish

      Even with flood insurance, the limits are $250,000 for a single family home and $100,000 for the contents. But your community would have had to apply to the program, and, if accepted, would have to adopt limited floodplain management standards. Which of course is Socialism. Also, requires actually doing something. Also, Texas/Florida.

          It really is a cult

          https://www.culteducation.com/warningsigns.html

          Ten warning signs of a potentially unsafe group/leader.

          Absolute authoritarianism without meaningful accountability.

          No tolerance for questions or critical inquiry.

          No meaningful financial disclosure regarding budget, expenses such as an independently audited financial statement.

          Unreasonable fear about the outside world, such as impending catastrophe, evil conspiracies and persecutions.

          There is no legitimate reason to leave, former followers are always wrong in leaving, negative or even evil.

          Former members often relate the same stories of abuse and reflect a similar pattern of grievances.

          There are records, books, news articles, or television programs that document the abuses of the group/leader.

          Followers feel they can never be “good enough”.

          The group/leader is always right.

          The group/leader is the exclusive means of knowing “truth” or receiving validation, no other process of discovery is really acceptable or credible.

          • Lance Thrustwell

            Aren’t cult leaders supposed to be charismatic? To me, Trump has all the charisma of a used car salesman with Tourette’s.

          • guest1331now

            Good snark, but seriously, Trump is (must be) very charismatic to his followers, producing the ‘how can they NOT see what he is?’ counter-reaction. Typical cult leaders, whether followers are few (Heaven’s Gate) or many (HItler, Stalin, Mussolini, Orange Mussolini) tend to look stupid/repulsive/bizarre to those not susceptible to the intoxication. For God’s sake, Anne Coulter, whom I never thought of as stupid, titled a book ‘In Trump We Trust’, so he’s got charisma for at least some types of ‘us’.

          • jesterpunk

            Trump says what his base wants to hear.

            I totally agree. When he’s being fake presidential, he is totally insincere. When he’s being his awful self, he is not funny or charismatic or compelling, just jerky and offensive and awful.

    The chief apologized for what he said — but not for being a racist. He did not say ‘ew, I need to work on my soul, somebody help me!’ as he might have. Just ‘sorry I blurted’, more or less

        However, Governor Cuomo took a planeload of supplies to PR. I approve, no matter how bad my memories of him as a young man. He did the right thing. Jennifer Lopez, for whom I give zero fucks, has made a $1 million donation to PR.

        Last night, I could not attend (because I’m broke) a benefit concert for Mexican earthquake survivors. There are all kinds of people doing the right thing, despite a lack of leadership at what’s supposed to be the top.

      I’m with you in loathing, mainly because I don’t know him well enough to hate him (we’ve never met socially, nor spent time together).

      • puredog

        And I never will. If he were heading into a room I was in, I would scurry out pronto.

    Puerto Rico might consider cutting ties with America after seeing how much our government cares for them. If they announced that, boy would the area get flooded with relief suppliers. Not necessarily supplies.

  • Bitter Scribe

    Let me get this straight: Donald Trump…DONALD FUCKING TRUMP…is slagging on someone for DEBT?

    What next…he’s going to sneer at someone for having a really bad comb-over?

    • JustDon’tSayKneel(OrNeil)

      Or too long a tie?

    Apparently he also tweeted, finally, about PR moments after Hillary scolded him on whatever interview she was on. Some think his obsession with her extends to watching all her appearances.

    • Donna Mueller

      she was on hayes last night…..soooo good to hear an educated adult speak clearly in full sentences and watch an intelligent brain formulate and participate in a lively discussion.

      • Cat Cafe for the Prosecution

        I’m reading her book and it honestly makes me cry how wonderful she would have been as President. She loves to prepare, she loves to work, she loves to use her brain, she’s so educated, smart, and accomplished. She wrote several sentences about her love for “school supplies” when she was writing about how fucking endlessly she prepared for everything (the debates, etc). SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE FUCKING PRESIDENT and I still don’t understand why everyone isn’t just saying that, all the time, and making it be so!!!

    Amazing! Debt to Wall Street “must be dealt with,” but food, water and medical needs are “doing well”??!!111/ Holy living fuck, I want some of what he’s smoking.

  • whitroth

    Healine in the WaPo: “Did Donald Trump Just Discover That Puerto Ricans Were Americans”?

    Meanwhile, the military’s sent, um, half a dozen Hueys, and…

    Personally, I think the chapter headline for Trump’s dealing with this is, “Heck of a good job, Donnie”. And I propose we tie that around his neck.

    • Are they strafing the victims?

      Did he just pull a “Who knew hurricane relief was so complicated?” Oh my fucking God!

        Also the most empty.

    I can’t even,,, I mean, fuck this guy! Just fuck him!

  • JayGoldenBeach

    I bet Puerto Rico would get a faster response from the federal govt if they request enough ships to relocate 3.5-million people to the mainland.

    • Walter Wellstone

      Puertoricans can vote in the general election if they declare residency in one of the 50 states. Donald should think about that.

    • george lastrapes

      GENIUS IDEA!!! Specifically, to battleground states and tossup districts?

  • Johnny Appleseed

    Glad to see he finally woke the f up. Unfortunately, unlike Trump did at his P. R. Resort, they aren’t allowed to claim bankruptcy protection to eliminate that pesky debt.

  • sillyclucker

    I have never hated anyone I’ve never met (and never hope to meet) like I hate this asshole.

    • blaid droog

      I hated W, still do but no one trumps trump. Comparatively speaking, W is an angel of the lord with an IQ in the top 1%.

  • Bigdaddyvike

    Puerto Rico is a third world nation. It couldn’t even sustain his golf course.

    • riri

      I think this is satire, but just in case – Puerto Rico is a US commonwealth, and Puerto Ricans are American citizens.

      • Bigdaddyvike

        It was. Sorry I may have implied otherwise.

  • Truly Madly Derply

    @Daily Edge-Trump doesn’t sit on his ass-it sits on him.

  • Delu

    Well Amy Siskind, it was a good effort, but unfortunately you were wrong about Donald Trump setting the people of Puerto Rico up to blame them for not doing his job.

    He blamed the Atlantic Ocean for not being able to do his job.

  • george lastrapes

    I wonder: How much would it help usually-sunny Puerto Rico if the Govt. (ours and theirs) shipped them a few hundred millions worth of solar panels so they could start to regrow their grid from the ground up?

  • Come on, give the Ol’ Pussy Grabber an even break and quit pretending like you don’t know. Puerto Rico is an island and Texas and Florida are the main land, you know? Island. Like an I. Land. And islands are where? In the ocean. Like O’ Cean. See? Oh come on! What else is in the ocean? BOATS!

    Gawd. I give up. If you can’t figger it out from that.

  • I mean, Puerto Rico can’t even pay the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s debt — he filed bankruptcy there for his golf course — how do they expect to pay off the hurricane. Live within your means people!

  • This article is a ridiculous distortion of what Trump actually wrote. He didn’t “scold” Puerto Ricans for anything, and he didn’t call them “lazy.”

    • my feet are normal

      thank God you told us in time, we’ll have the internet recalled and all the inaccurate parts removed.
