Donald Trump Says The Very Real Fact That 3,000 People Died In Puerto Rico Is “Fake News”

SHARE

In a Thursday morning tweet-storm, the President of The United States didn’t tweet out support those in the path of Hurricane Florence. Honestly a tweet rant about what he ate for breakfast would have been better than what his tiny hands typed out.

A recent report came out last month that claimed the number of deaths due to the back-to-back hurricanes in Puerto Rico was near 3,000. This was conducted by researchers at George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health, you know a very real resource that has no reason to be bias.

This didn’t matter though because POTUS thinks that these numbers were made up by the fake news and Democrats. This morning at 8:37 and 8:49 AM EST he lashed out with these tweets:

I’m guessing the 12 minute delay was because he had to finish the egg McMuffin and diet coke in bed first.

If you remember correctly, Trump wasn’t even aware that Puerto Rico belonged to the United States last year during relief efforts. He even was so brass to say that Puerto Rico threw the United State’s budget “out of whack.”

The Mayor of Puerto Rico responded quickly to his morning tweets saying:

“This is what denial following neglect looks like: Mr Pres in the real world people died on your watch. YOUR LACK OF RESPECT IS APPALLING!”

According to the New York Times, Trump’s former homeland security adviser Thomas Bossert, said that the President lacked humility, saying:

“The missing part was empathy. I wish he’d paused and expressed that, instead of just focusing on the response success. The people that died — thousands of people — it’s terrible, but it’s always difficult to talk about the causality of that death.”

The fact that people died to inadequate health care in the wake of the hurricanes is very real. This revised number of deaths was 2,975 which is opposed to just 64 which was what originally stated. This has been accepted by the Puerto Rican Government but not by the federal government at this time.

Many people see this as a “new low” for the President as you can see from some of these responses:

This isn’t the first time Trump has shown that he doesn’t know what’s going on in the real world. Take a look at Omarosa’s count of what happened when she was let go…

Omarosa has now released a recording of a conversation that the President and her had over the phone in 2017. Trump learns of her being fired from Omarosa and not even from his own staff.



In the video you can hear Trump and Omarosa saying:

Trump: “Omarosa? Omarosa what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving? What happened?”

Omarosa: “General Kelly came to me and said that you guys wanted me to leave.”

Trump: “Nobody even told me about it.”

Omarosa: “Wow.”

Trump: “You know they run a big operation, but I didn’t know it. I didn’t know that. Goddamn it. I don’t love you leaving at all.”

This all came out this morning and since then, Donald Trump has been on a predictable Tweet storm. He is known for giving his enemies catchphrase nicknames and this time is no different.

Just to make it clear, he had to take 23 minutes in-between Tweets to think of what to say next. 30 minutes later he was at it again.

After these angry Tweets, Omarosa was seen on MSNBC saying:

“This is his pattern with African-Americans. He doesn’t know how to control himself.”

In Omarosa’s book, “Unhinged: An Insider’s Account of the Trump White House,” she mentions never signing a non-disclosure agreement. Even after her firing, she was sent a contract by Lara Trump, the president’s daughter-in-law, that asked her to work on Trump’s re-election campaign for $15,000 a month. This had a NDA attached to it that was, “as harsh and restrictive as any I’d seen in all my years of television.”

She promptly turned down the offer, but I don’t think Donald Trump got the memo on that either. She gave copies of those documents to “Meet The Press” and Trump must have been watching. He Tweeted after two hours of the last Omarosa Tweet:

Even if Trump did fire her three times…why did he hire her back. No matter what side of the political spectrum you are on, you have to think that that’s not good business.

John Kelly might have taken Trump’s catchphrase of “You’re Fired” because he’s done it to so many people in the Trump cabinet such as Rex Tillerson, Steve Bannon and even Anthony “Mooch” Saramucci.

Since Trump loves watching TV so much, it might be in his best interest to watch some re-runs of The Apprentice to remember how it’s done.
