Sad, unfair, possibly fake but still totally rockin' t-shirt on Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch

Looks like Trump's own Department of Defense is now a candidate for a "Fake News" rage tweet



The Pentagon said on Sunday that the situation in Puerto Rico is getting worse as water supplies dwindle, even as the Trump administration has gone into overdrive on its public relations effort to convince the world that it is not neglecting the beleaguered U.S. territory.

The Hill said that the Department of Defense released an urgent press bulletin stating that 45 percent of the island’s population are still without water.

“Forty-five percent of customers have access to drinking water. Ninety-five percent of customers remain without power; power has been restored to San Juan airport and marine terminals,” the statement said.

Trump and his cabinet members have insisted repeatedly that the federal effort to bring relief to the island is going well and “getting great reviews.” They have called people who disagree with them “politically motivated ingrates” and said that Puerto Ricans are too lazy to help themselves.

.@realDonaldTrump another given Sunday: instigating and provoking war? You better learn diplomacy instead of using the 280 characters.

I think we rocketed right past "Trump's Katrina" about a week ago...this is a whole new animal.

If you haven't seen the SNL clip of Michael Che's comments that I just posted in Video & Multimedia, I encourage you to check it out. He says what most of us are thinking. The best line is about Trump needing to go "smoke a Virginia Slim until his hands stop shaking" after San Juan's Mayor was "nasty" to him.

Bush screwed up. It hit him fast, it hit him hard, his handlers got through to him, and while much of what he did after that looked extremely staged (especially the hugging photos), he at least went through the motions.

But Puerto Rico?

This one's gonna leave a mark. From an "optics" standpoint, I think it's too late for Trump, and it will be fascinating to see what happens on Tuesday...especially if he spews more bile on Twitter after his visit, unless of course he cancels it in advance.
