Closing Thought–02Oct17

And The Winner Is!

We all have been witnessing the tragedies of three hurricanes…..and the president has found a unique way to bring attention to the events….

Hours after slamming “politically motivated ingrates” for criticizing the federal response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, President Trump attended a golf tournament—and dedicated the US win in the Presidents Cup to hurricane victims. Trump presented the trophy to US captain Steve Stricker after the US team cruised to victory for the seventh year in a row. “On behalf of all of the people of Texas, and all of the people—if you look today and see what is happening, how horrible it is, but we have it under really great control—Puerto Rico and the people of Florida who have really suffered over this last short period of time with the hurricanes, I want to just remember them,” Trump said, per the Guardian.

“We’re doing really well on Puerto Rico,” he told reporters. “Tremendous progress being made. We’re getting the roads open, we’re getting a lot of things done—really at a record clip.” (On Saturday, Trump lashed out at San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz and other Puerto Rican officials who “want everything to be done for them.”)

Seriously?  WTF?

What does this “coveted” award do for the people that have suffered thanx to the hurricanes?

How much of the prize money is earmarked for Puerto Rico or Florida or Texas?

Politicizing a tragedy.  Cannot get much lower than that… my book.

Give the victims a few weeks and they will clean off a spot for the trophy.

If someone would like to help out…in Mexico, Puerto Rico, Florida or Texas then maybe they should visit this site…..
