Because It's All About Him (Or: When Is A Disaster Not A Real Disaster?)

Dickhead Donald can't help himself; people have no food, no power, no shelter and his only concern is how much restoring the most basic of these necessities is going to cost.

Oh and by the way, any dollars spent on restoring the Puerto Rico are going to be charged to their already well overdrawn account. Thanks for shopping!

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Touring a small slice of Hurricane Maria’s devastation, President Donald Trump congratulated Puerto Rico on Tuesday for escaping the higher death toll of “a real catastrophe like Katrina” and heaped praise on the relief efforts of his administration without mentioning the sharp criticism the federal response has drawn.

“Really nothing short of a miracle,” he said of the recovery, an assessment at odds with the despair of many still struggling to find water and food outside the capital city in wide swaths of an island where only 5 percent of electricity customers have power back. The governor of Puerto Rico said late Tuesday that the official death toll has been increased to 34 from 16.[..]

Trump pledged an all-out effort to help the island while adding, somewhat lightly: “Now I hate to tell you, Puerto Rico, but you’ve thrown our budget a little out of whack because we’ve spent a lot of money on Puerto Rico. And that’s fine. We’ve saved a lot of lives.”

People have had their entire lives wiped out and his concern is that "our budget is a little out of wack." But hey, it's not like it was a REAL disaster, because you know, only a few dozen people died. So, yah, not a real tragedy in any sense. No urgency to save additional lives, or anything. No.

The clown show, where he was tossing out paper towels as if those would rebuild homes, restore power or provide aid to the needy was extraordinary. I suppose if your ego is big enough you can't get embarrassed by demeaning desperate people like a fisherman throwing chum to a seal. But Dickhead doesn't think and, more importantly, he doesn't see anyone who isn't a multi-millionaire as a "person" worthy of basic respect. So after delays and debt consideration, Dickhead was petulant over helping Puerto Rico because they weren't respectful enough to HIM.

For much of his tour, Trump remained focused primarily on drawing praise.

“I appreciate your support and I know you appreciate ours,” Trump said. “Our country has really gone all out. It’s not only dangerous, it’s expensive. But I consider it a great honor.”

I fail to understand why any reasonable, caring, sociable human would have supported Dickhead for president. My ultimate conclusion is that those who voted for him, and those who still support this shitbrain aren't any of those things. They're selfish, uncaring, antisocial greedbags who believe that Dickhead would (somehow) make their lives better at the expense of everyone else.

Well, good luck with that. Because we're all Puerto Rico in one way or another, and unless you're independently wealthy there's not a single thing this "president" is going to do for you.
