Donald trump spent the day watching a golf tournament.
This is probably the most tone deaf gesture I’ve ever witnessed any American president make.
President Trump on Sunday dedicated a golf trophy to the victims of recent powerful storms that tore through Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, all the while defending the government’s response to the disasters.
“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,” the president said.
“And we’re going to dedicate this trophy to all of those people that went through so much that we love — a part of our great state, really part of our great nation,” he continued.
Trump’s remarks were made during a trophy presentation at the golf tournament in New Jersey.
Just what Hurricane Maria’s victims need! A Golf Trophy dedicated to them.
So instead of sending his private Boeing 757 to help, the way Rap Artist Pitbull did with his private plane (to fly cancer patients to the mainland for treatment), Trump dedicates a Golf Trophy? This is beyond pathetic.
At the start of his presentation speech Trump lionizes the Professional Golfers:
“These people, they’re special people. They are born, and then they work very hard hard on this incredible talent. They really are, talented, talented folks. And really they are people who have good hearts.”
Now contrast that with how Trump described black NFL players as “Son of a Bitch”
That’s awfully white of you Donald
