She specifically held that speech with the supplies behind her to make the point that it was not enough, that the recovery efforts were moving far too slow for the needs of San Juan, not to mention the rest of Puerto Rico.

PR is in some kind of hell right now, and it's pathetic that our manbaby snowflake president views Mayor Cruz’s begging for help in saving lives as an attempt to make him look bad.

Trouble is there is nothing to make me believe that is the only water being delivered or available.

Manbaby snowflake President doesn't help your case much either.

I get the frustration, When the bear has got hold of your ass nothing moves fast enough, but the best that Trump can do is turn the job over to the experts.

Problem is there's still swaths of PR lacking power, accessible water and food supplies, and communication. What's available, even if it were enough and it's not, may be different from what's reachable considering the hit their infrastructure took from the hurricane.

Well he is one. When he responds to a mayor begging for aid, basically panicking on why recovery efforts aren't moving faster than they are, why there isn't better coordination and a better flow resources from the mainland to PR, like this:

The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.

..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. They....

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/...89003745468417

...want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/...89888596754434

We have done a great job with the almost impossible situation in Puerto Rico. Outside of the Fake News or politically motivated ingrates,...

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/...65475777695744

Fake News CNN and NBC are going out of their way to disparage our great First Responders as a way to "get Trump." Not fair to FR or effort!

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/...94625488502784
The hell are we supposed to think? While the mayor and others are desperately trying to make sense of the historic devastation, distribute food and water, and stave off a potential cholera epidemic, Trump is at his golf resort acting like he's the victim.

The best he could do is that, and respond to worries and complaints during a major crisis with warmth and comfort as a president should, not whiny bullsh-t like those tweets. When Sandy hit, Obama didn't lash out like this towards concerns and critics. At a time of a major national emergency, Trump has yet again shown this country and world how small he really is.

I'm sorry if my description of the guy bothers you, but after the umpteenth example of pettiness and childish immaturity (with apologies to actual children) from a man who's supposed to represent America and Americans and our values, in trying times like these, it's just so goddamn depressing. And no one before him has ever come close to his level, no one.

Does this mean you will stop talking? You tag someone with a label and that is all that needs to be said. Sounds like you are worse than a communist because you sound like you would turn your back on these people because of your label.

Wally, it was the mayor who made the convo about a couple pallets of water. If memory serves, she said that was all that was available. That's nonsense.

You're correct, though, PR is a mess and supplies are not the problem. Distribution is. Trump can do nothing about that. He is scheduled for a PR trip, Tuesday? I believe that's a mistake. When the President comes to or through Richmond, half the city is tied up for hours. PR doesn't need that.

Same with the golf tournament. Bad PR, but did it affect the rescue effort? No. For all I know it was a PR benefit tournament.

Your description of the guy doesn't bother me. Why should it? I get that a lot of people don't like President Trump.

What are we supposed to think when the Mayor plays politics with the recovery effort? What to conclude when she blames Trump for her failure as a mayor to develop a plan to deal with disaster recovery?

New Jersey governor Chris Christie worked hand in glove with President Obama to secure hurricane relief at great cost to his political ambitions. But wait, the mayor treats her constituents as expendable to her party loyalty and ambitions.

As usual Trump is the bad guy because he doesn't hold the mayor hand while she throws her panic attack. He doesn't have a magic wand so for the nth time he is a accused of incompetence.

If Trump walked out on Wall street and shot someone...he was exactly right about that. Is not that some kinda cult or something?
