What the world thinks about "let 'em eat paper towels"

From the BBC:

(headline snip)
Puerto Rico: Trump paper towel-throwing 'abominable'


The mayor of Puerto Rico's capital, San Juan, has described Donald Trump's visit to the hurricane-hit island as "insulting" and called him a "miscommunicator-in-chief".

Show staged for tRump's ego in rich, clean part of town. Humiliation for America!

It's flat wrong to speculate.

There's not a human on this planet that can say with absolute certainty what caused this man to do this heinous act. Our medical profession cannot diagnose a living person with mental issues with absolute certainty. That's because we don't have tools with absolute precision to diagnose human brain functions and may never have.

So, why on earth would we - or even professionals - think we could diagnose someone that's dead?

Our MDs and psychiatrists use the experience they have to "propose" a mental diagnosis, and then literally experiment with various drugs and/or therapy and carefully observe the results. Then, they make adjustments and changes to the meds, and keep trying until some acceptable result is achieved. In other words, it's a trial and error process - but with vast experience to guide the process.

This sort of speculative after-the-fact diagnostics can actually be damaging to those who might need these medications, but read this noise on-line and instead, back away from treatment.

IMO, the Hill.com should retract their speculative dialog.

Massive privatization is my guess.

Handled cleverly by Golden Sacks (with zillions in fees). Perhaps like the EU "rescued" Greece?

Capitalism always comes with conditions and little charity.

Hope someone here with knowledge of Puerto Rico's assets and debt can shed some light on this.

There's an old American elitist saying: "let them eat paper towels".

Made famous, I think, by the CEO of Walmart.

Thanks for your kind supports, syringis. We need every bit we can get!

Yes, and I agree he is very racist and elitist, as his history demonstrates.

What I was referring to is the very intentional lies he tells - even in front of those affected - that serve no purpose (that I can see) other than to throw red meat to his base (as Hillary said today).

One could even argue that he could actually expand his voter base by being kind and supportive to these destitute folks. The shear coldness baffles me - and I often see that expressed in overseas media, too.

Just defies all logic - as does everything tRump.

Presented with the coveted GOP Seal of Bad Nationkeeping.

Preexisting relationship? So what?

Rethugs have a preexisting relationship with the devil as well.

Who gives this dolt his information?

tRump surely has a pack of compliant minders that give him nothing but news that feeds his narrative and his ego. How could he be so shielded from the truth there? If he wasn't shielded, I guarantee you some Puerto Ricans would be flat-out in his face.

This whole pack of miscreants needs to be run out of the White House, then make them all live in the flood-ravaged parts of PR, Texas or Florida.

Thanks, lindysalsagal - like a lot of other areas, we have a lot of work to do.

Humility and openness is the key. I had to learn about myself out of necessity, and I'm a very curious person. Also, because some of the ladies in my life were going through the change, I needed to learn about that, too!

It's enough that we have a percentage of our populace that are born psychopathic or psychotic (or develop these characteristics later in life). But, when we don't even understand our individual physical and mental natures, we shouldn't be surprised when someone in our life acts strangely or even commits a terrible act.

The big problem is lack of education and a lack of desire to learn. If both men and women had even a cursory understanding of the physical and mental nature of themselves and the opposite sex, we would have far fewer problems in society - and we would be far more open and kind to each other. I suspect this basic education should be required in our high schools.

I've learned that human hormonal and mental systems are extremely complex and difficult for us laymen to comprehend. However, I think our medical professionals could simplify those areas and provide us with educational materials the public could understand.

What a scum bag.

Trying to put horribly desperate people on a guilt trip. Typical scrooge-like elitist Republican attitude.

It's important we let our members of Congress know what we think of this man's immorality, lack of decorum and hubris.
