1. I'm sure he thinks "Hey, if I could only get this role of paper towels

into the center of this... it would soak up ALL of that water and no more hurricane!"

4. Just wipe up the mess from a category 5 hurricane with some Paper Towel brand paper towels!

2. ".....one of the best jobs that's ever been done."

I guess that depends on what he was trying to accomplish. Decrease the population of "brown" people? Open up Puerto Rico for private investors? There is a lot more to this story than mismanaged disaster relief.

13. This movie has a lot of moments where skepticism proves useful

Plus it's one of the top five funniest movies of all time.

15. Oh for sure. I miss Leslie Nielsen!

I have heard some stories about him that he was always the set prankster, especially on Airplane. Apparently he was buried with the fart gun that he used to carry around the set.

7. Unhinged pathological liar.

The orange buffoon did nothing to help Puerto Rico. Throwing paper towels as a PR stunt was disgusting.

8. Zero Credibility

You can tell he's lying if his lips are moving or his fingers are tweeting.

9. Trump, "..Puerto Rico was incredibly successful.." IMHO, .stupidest thing he has ever said.

That says a whole lot. It is also the most insensitive thing he has ever said. Why? ............
The deaths of 3000 people was....."incredibly successful."

10. Trump is prepared? More likely the government is prepared because they aren't waiting for any

guidance from the president this time around. The best thing Dump can do is stay out of the way.

11. Does he think it's "one of the best jobs" because more people died

than during G.W.B.'s Katrina?

14. Boy! And this region could really use the rain too.

If Hurricane Florence was centered over Las Vegas, the edge of the storm would stretch almost to Phoenix. Hurricane-force winds would almost stretch to Mesquite in the NE & Baker, CA to the SW. @FOX5Vegas

17. But . . . were any of those 3,000 deaths rich, old white guys?

Well, then they don't count, now do they?

18. Some conservative radio host and her guest this morning were...

... asserting that Democrats are not allowed to criticize Trump's preparedness level BEFORE an event, because the preparedness, of course, is unknown until the event actually occurs. However, of course, they felt that they could praise Trump's preparedness level BEFORE the same event, because... apparently.... the, uh, preparedness CAN, uh, indeed be known before... the, um... event. Because Republican logic.

19. I am not sure anybody has really figured out what message the lsos was sending with the paper towell

photo op. He is in our face insulting, degrading, dismissing, and purposely showing his disdain for the citizens of PR.
It's as if the captain of the Titanic was seen throwing life saver candies to the drowning victims.
