#EndorseThis: Trump Boasts About ‘Amazing Job’ In Puerto Rico


If there is any single incident that has conclusively proved Trump’s unfitness to be president, it is his failure to provide timely aid and comfort to the millions of American citizens suffering in devastated Puerto Rico. That is the most fundamental responsibility of his office.

Instead, as usual, Trump is preening and boasting rather than performing his duties — and Samantha Bee, as usual, has got his number. If we couldn’t laugh at this useless clown, we’d always be weeping. All of us must help our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico, because they certainly can’t count on him.

    Maria is to Trump as Katrina was to Bush. Heck of job, Trumpy.

    So Obama gets 19000 Navy personnel to Japan (across the Pacific ocean, donchano?) in a few days, but the tangerine tyrant can’t get a single ship from north Florida to Puerto Rice in a couple of weeks?

    Sound like a major failure by the Obese Orange Morangutan to me…

    1. dbtheonly September 29, 2017

      No, it’s more that Puerto Ricans can’t vote.

    2. RichFromShowMe September 30, 2017

      The problem wasn’t ship movement . . . it was that a port to unload was decimated and had to be made operational before materials could be moved.

      1. johninPCFL September 30, 2017

        So, Obama manages to get a competent military that can put boots on the ground after a tsunami, but that military capability has now deteriorated to the point where dockage is critical?

        Sorry, that talking point is just more bulltrump.

        BTW, once the tangerine tyrant lifted the Jones Act restrictions, other ships seem to be offloading just fine. You know, ships from other countries. Ships that don’t mind that the PR citizens can’t vote in presidential elections.

        1. RichFromShowMe September 30, 2017

          The Jones Act was signed September 8th, long before the hurricane hit Puerto Rico. It’s signing covered the, then current, Hurricane Harvey and subsequent hurricanes; i.e., Irma and Maria. You Lefties simply ignore FACTS when you can blame President Trump.

          It took a few days to get their Port able to take materials as well as their airport, Road System and other systems. Telephone coverage has been restored. 🙂


          1. johninPCFL September 30, 2017

            Apparently you and Agent Orange aren’t communicating, or maybe you just don’t know: “The president was asked Wednesday why his administration lifted the act to get aid to Texas and Florida but hadn’t done so in the wake of Maria.

            “We’re thinking about that,” Trump said before boarding Air Force One Wednesday on his way to Indiana. “We have a lot of shippers and a lot of people that work in the shipping industry that don’t want the Jones Act lifted. We have a lot of ships out there right now.””

            Wednesday was 9/27, a full week after the hurricane hit the island. Again, why a week later? Especialy after the earlier hurricanes to Florida and Texas had the wavers in hours? Hmmm….maybe that PRs CAN’T VOTE FOR PRESIDENT has something to do with the traitorous behaviour of the Resident?

          2. RichFromShowMe September 30, 2017

            The Jones Act was signed September 8 and extended to September 22nd when President Trump extended it for the duration of the Recovery Process.

            I realize the FACTS may be confusing, but the President did not withhold any assistance. The time to get the Port in operation, Roads Open and Puerto Rico Truck drivers was the reason for the time lag.

            I am referencing, once again CBS and DHS as I realize Leftists don’t believe anything on FOX.

            My WAG is the Teamsters Union may have a hand in getting truck drivers there and probably raising the hourly rates “out of sight”, but that’s the Democrat controlled Unions’s we have to live with . . . .





          3. johninPCFL September 30, 2017

            You, like diaper the uninformedVoter, have been dining on trumpscrement so long you are hallucinating.

            Jones Act waiver: “In response, the Department of Homeland Security said the Jones Act was waived after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma to make up for fuel pipelines that were shut. Puerto Rico is having no problems getting gasoline, diesel fuel and other supplies to the island, Homeland Security said.”

            I already posted the proof that Agent Orange hadn’t waived the Jones Act for Puerto Rico until a week after the storms.

            Costs: “But it’s also had the unintended consequence of making it twice as expensive to ship things from the U.S. mainland to Puerto Rico as it is to ship from any other foreign port in the world, according to Republican Senator John McCain’s office.”

            Continue to believe the lies if you wish, but the rest of us laugh at your ignorance.

  3. RichFromShowMe September 29, 2017

    The materials have been in Puerto Rico for days, but the roads are not totally open and they can’t find enough Puerto Rico Truck Drivers to deliver to folks trying to recover.

    Puerto Rico may be more corrupt than New Orlean’s ex-mayor who’s currently serving10 years in a Federal Prison for various forms of thievery before, during and after Katrina.




    1. dbtheonly September 29, 2017

      That’s it Rich,

      Blame the victims for not having enough equipment to clear the roads. Or drivers to drive on the uncleared roads. Or gasoline to power those trucks.


      What part of total disaster don’t you get?

      1. RichFromShowMe September 30, 2017

        I fully realize you do not subscribe to common sense, there are many helicopters delivering supplies but as you can see there are thousands of tons of material to deliver and helicopters are limited to around 5 to 20 tons, depending on size and engines of helicopter.

        The only way to move thousands of tons quickly is by truck (or train), which Puerto Rico digging out.

        I did not blame the victims as my response was to a post by another idiot who doesn’t realize the level of destruction in Puerto Rico and, of course, as is the constant drum-beat on this blog . . . blame President Trump.

  11. ivory69690@yahoo.com October 1, 2017

    the thing is with this kneeling and debates with one and another as far as respecting the flag and the USA maybe all the people should get FIRST THE POINT of the debate . and that go’s right to the heart of what America is and why we was put in this form . what made the country and how it and we all were planed to be one nation all the same people holding the same respect we have for each other and the respect all should have for them self’s . its simple America was founded for all man (and women) to be equal in the eyes of each other . no ones any better or worse then anyone else . all the same . whit this when one seeks respect first let them seek it for every one the same . debate & protest the picture too many seem to be missing . debate & protest one part of out human race being treated differently then others if be it any part of our human race was being treated different then another then is the time we as all being of the same race stand up for out race and help defend our race . there’s no color in the world human . it is all of us of the same race . debate and protest any of the others in our race that treat any others of us differently . and fight for all of the human race as one FOR THAT IS WHAT WE ARE ONE HUMAN RACE !! its not as much respecting a flag or a country the point is respecting each other and with that being done and done right then all the rest flags country’s will fall right into place and shape VERY EASY FIX PEOPLE

  12. ivory69690@yahoo.com October 1, 2017

    we as people can respect each other in war when we all fight for the same thing US AS ALL AND ONE ! then the same should be said and done all the time . if for nothing else then for US AS ALL AND BEING OF ONE stand debate protest protect and defend all as you want and do for one self

  13. ivory69690@yahoo.com October 1, 2017

    someone some where else on line posted what DUMP 45 did do week to weeks later . im thinking how many life’s were lost for not sending right away ? ok all that is a good thing . not a defends for the DUMP 45 at all now one can look at it from an American point of view 1st the time frame it took DUMP 45 to do anything 2nd inbetween . telling Puerto Rico that the whole thing is their own fault . 3rd telling them not in so many words that those Americans there have a lot of debt . what the hell dose that have to do with doing a presidents jobs and saving Americans lifes ? as the DUMP 45 CLOWNS has the grains of sand in his small hands package . who is he to school anyone on debt ? 5 or 6 bankrupts . and he might of even had one for $33 million in a golf course in Puerto Rico in fact he helped build up their debt himself . and 4th MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL when Haiti had their earthquake and their tragedy (NOT EVEN AMERICANS MIND YOU ) HELP WAS SENT THERE 10 TIMES MORE AND NOT A WEEK TO WEEKS BUT DAYS as DUMP 45 could give one person in Puerto Rico a spam sandwich and he would never stop saying how great a job he did . again all these thing should been sent there in days all knew it was coming .

    PS another thing the evil Satan DUMP 45 is very revengeful for what ever reasons in his pee for brains mind one can bet for sure if he won Puerto Rico in the election help might gotten there faster (MAYBE DUMP 45 is still a prejudice evil hatful POS ) so that still might of slowed him down .
