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 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.
BTW, Wally, I looked the golf tournament up. It was held at Liberty National Golf Club. New Jersey. Not a Trump Club. Not your basic Sunday in place of the NFL tournament. The Presidents Cup, a semi official tournament between the US and an all star International team. The US won easily. He spent a couple of hours there. He presented the trophy and dedicated it to Houston, Florida, and Puerto Rico. Had he been forced to miss to do the nations work. He had backup. Obama, Bush, and Clinton were also in attendance. Not exactly a couple days off fiddling while San Juan burned.

I wonder if Jimbo and Kirk realize that Trump's swamp creature Mnuchin used to be a partner of SOROS.
