Hello darkness, my old friend I've come to talk with you again





"He's just racist": Ex-Puerto Rico governor says there's only one explanation for Trump's negligence

MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin spoke to Puerto Rico’s former Gov. Alejandro García Padilla (D) on Thursday, who said that President Donald Trump’s haphazard response to Hurricane Maria and his contemptuous attitude toward the people of Puerto Rico are because Trump is “just racist.”

García Padilla reminded Melvin that Puerto Ricans did not ask to become U.S. citizens. “It was imposed by Congress just prior to the first World War so our young Puerto Ricans back then can go into military service. So it’s the duty of the United States to put its boots on the ground here in Puerto Rico.”

“It’s not that we are begging,”
he said. “It’s what we deserve.”

Trump, said García Padilla, “is talking to his electoral base. He’s not talking about law or about history. He’s showing off the he’s just racist. Let’s call it by name.”

“That’s a pretty bold assertion, there,”
said Melvin, “to call the president of the United States a racist.”


They're both disgusting, but only one has nuclear codes.

You WILL praise Dear Leader.

Just in:
A reader told me she called WH switchboard to object to Trump's Puerto Rico tweets.
WH receptionist told her WaPo was "fake news."



FEMA issues a rebuke to the president:

FEMA will be w/Puerto Rico, USVI, every state, territory impacted by a disaster every day, supporting throughout their response & recovery


A "Liddle" Reminder:
