Yep…He went there. “The disaster is those lazy Spanish speaking brown folks fault.”
Never mind the disaster in Houston was largely the very white corrupt Republican’s fault.
We got to get rid of this racist POS – soonest. Mueller – it is time to start prosecuting this traitorous POS and his cronies, convicting them…
And sending the off to jail or hanging them.
‘Unfit for office’: Trump’s latest ‘racist victim blaming’ tantrum blaming ‘lazy’ Puerto Ricans shocks the Internet
On Saturday morning, President Donald Trump rose early at his New Jersey golf resort and tweeted insults at San Juan, Puerto Rico Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, as well as insults to citizens on the American territory at large.
“Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help,” the president tweeted. “They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”
He went on to say that “the military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an amazing job. Puerto Rico was totally destroyed,” doubling down on rhetoric that many believe blames Puerto Rico for their own devastation in the wake of Hurricane Maria.
In response to the president, many pointed out the apparent bigotry in Trump’s comments.
“This is one of the most horrible, racist, despicable things Trump has ever said,” journalist Shaun King wrote of Trump’s comments alluding to the laziness of the Puerto Rican people.
Others pointed out that Trump’s criticism of Puerto Ricans amid their suffering was an example of victim blaming.
“Trump is victim blaming Puerto Rico via twitter (they have no power so can’t see) at his golf course,” artist Bryan Brinkman commented.

Trump implied that @CarmenYulinCruz and her people are lazy. The racial undercurrent becomes an overcurrent. https://nyti.ms/2yzXINB
“they want everything to be done for them” they got hit by a HURRICANE, for cryin out loud, and are STARVING & DYING https://www.rawstory.com/2017/09/trump-attacks-nasty-san-juan-mayor-and-accuses-puerto-rican-workers-of-being-lazy-in-vicious-tweet-frenzy …
It’s clear that Trump does not really get that Puerto Rico is American and its residents are American citizens, and thus his responsibility.
It’s NOT poor leadership by San Juan Mayor to help those whom she serves.
It IS poor leadership by YOU, you #racist foolhttps://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/914089003745468417 …
If he were assuming none of his supporters will care he’s abandoning people to die, b/c those people are brown, it’d look like … this.
Listen, I’m not saying that’s what he’s doing. I’m just saying that him doing that would look exactly like what we see with our eyes rn.
Imagine saying that Pearl Harbor was unfortunately totally unable to handle the effects of the attack on their own.
Is Houston recovery happening totally on its own? Is Miami’s?
Trump is unfit for office. He’s attacking the Mayor of San Juan, who is pleading for help to save her citizens, because she was mean to him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/914087234869047296 …
