Glad I'm not a native of Puerto Rico

Trump put that mayor in her place, the nerve of a woman questioning him stating things are going swimmingly. Rub salt in the wound and kick the dog while she's down, man I can't believe what that clown tweets at times. The US mainland response being top rate is about as believable as Trump and the upper percentile of earners not benefiting from the new tax plan.

I feel bad for those people after what they went thru. But that island was a disaster waiting to happen. In debt up to their eyeballs, and it was only a matter of time before a storm like that rolled over that place doing massive damage.

Hit the nail on the head. Very poor infrastructure to begin with. Tried to get by on the cheap without making necessary upkeep. Those residents will have a long road and their taxes will skyrocket. Will be interesting to see just what the federal government will fund.

"being a complete knucklehead"

just said he's been this way for a very long time and it's always worked for him, what motivation would he have to change and why would you expect different?

and speaking of knuckleheads

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz

“Hello, San Juan. Freedom for Oscar Lopez Rivera.. soon he will be with us. We have to thank every Puerto Rican man and woman, who for a long time, many of us didn’t know Oscar Lopez Rivera. He was fighting the fight,” she said.

“We’re going to give you more details when we welcome this great Puerto Rican patriot in a cause that unites us and to know that, in spite of our differences, we can do big things in this country,” she continued.

Yulin Cruz added, “This great celebration is going to be in the streets and it is going to be extraordinarily large. So do come by starting Thursday to celebrate what our hearts scream for. Thanks, President Obama. Long live Oscar Lopez Rivera.”

Lopez Rivera was sentenced to 35 years in prison for his involvement in the FALN, a Puerto Rican separatist group that was responsible for more than 100 bombings in the U.S. during the 1970s and 1980s.

in which calling someone a "complete knucklehead", is defending him.

I wonder what the added cost of the Jones Act is on an annual basis to the island?

There are also mayors of other towns in PR saying that there is a lot of US aid there, and that the mayor of San Juan, has not been attending the FEMA meetings.

Again, I don't like Trump. But I'm not sure he's sitting on his hands doing nothing, or taking glee in the "genocide" that the mayor says is taking place.

After the winds and seas calm down, you'd think this would be a fairly simple exercise.

It is an embarrassment when his own secretary of state is quoted as calling him a moron and he doesn't deny it.

By now, I would have thought that everyone has accepted that Trump is a moron. Maybe it took Tillerson a while to get it. Even so, Tillerson says he doesn't want to resign. I guess he doesn't consider Trump's version of a being a moron very significant.

First I'd definitely not classify either a Trump supporter as a moron or someone who voted for Hilary as a loser, clearly this forum brings out the worst in people. I voted for Hilary and not because I was a big fan, but because I thought the damage this clown could do as president was far more dangerous in my personal opinion.

And speaking of opinions, you must have a very low opinion of the "average" american, especially if you are going to lump them in with Trump. I'm friends with many average american's and not one of them has the lack of character this guy shows. Sure the average american is probably not all that happy with politics as usual and I'm certainly one of them. If you think Trump as a person is similar to the average american, then we are in more trouble than I thought.

There is a lot of schadenfruede powering Trump's base, same as there was for Obama.

We need good politicians to move to the middle. If you (or the Party) really think that Hillary was a good candidate, she could not beat the guy you are railing against now. She was (and is) a HORRIBLE candidate.

For me, I did not vote for Trump, a couple Rs I could have voted for but none of the D slate (excepting Webb) . We need better candidates and we need more moderates - moving the Dem partly more left ain't going to bring in the middle.

Interesting piece on the parties moving off center
