So, what’s the difference between Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida? I mean, all three places were battered by hurricanes. Also, all three places house American citizens. Look, whether it was Hurricane Harvey, Irma or Maria, each land was devastated by Mother Nature. So, I ask again, what’s the difference between Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida? The fact that Donald Trump doesn’t give a fuck about the citizens in Puerto Rico.
Now, for those who missed it, Trump spent this past weekend blaming Puerto Rico for their own misfortunes. Instead of commenting on the fact that fellow Americans don’t have power or running water, he talked about the land’s debt. Instead of heeding Carmen Yulín Cruz‘s pleas for help, he criticized her leadership and falsely claimed that relief efforts were great. Once again, instead of having genuine compassion for people, Trump turned another tragedy into politics.
Fam, Trump actually had the audacity to say that Puerto Rico wants everything done for them. Shit, did he say that to the Houston residents who begged Joel Osteen for shelter? Did he say that to Miami residents who watched South Beach get damn near washed away? Nah, Trump only took that tone with the Brown people, son. Look, no one can tell me that race isn’t a factor when these people need help just like any other citizen. All in all, Puerto Ricans did nothing to deserve such blatant disrespect, man.
In the end, I’m surprised that Trump can still surprise me. I mean, the lack of regard for people under his jurisdiction is staggering, fam. Then again, he’s probably like the 46% of Americans who don’t even know that Puerto Ricans are fellow citizens. *Sigh* It’s Monday morning and my head already hurts, bruh. I’m gonna go now. LC out.
