I’ve been wrong about Trump many times. I thought he’d torpedoed his campaign right out of the gate with his Mexican rapists remark, but no. I thought making fun of the handicapped reporter would sink him for sure, even the most hideous right winger surely must realize how offensive that was, but no. Then there was the pussy grabbing comment and I thought there was no way any self respecting female could back him after that, but plenty of women continued to back him.
Now this. Tweeting, from the golf course, that the Mayor of San Juan is a horrible mayor and isn’t doing enough to fix the problem, when the power is out, roads and bridges have been destroyed, many regions are still flooded, people across the island are hungry, having a hard time finding clean water to drink, and a large number of them are homeless, while he’s actually guilty of obstructing the relief effort…well, surely this must be enough to turn people against him.
No. I see people on my Facebook feed still supporting him. This is depressing.
This is absolutely not excusable. This is not just walking past a homeless person, dismissive and condescending like. This is stopping to spit on them. This is the high school gym coach who makes the fat kid do push ups, then puts his foot on their back and laughs at them. This is not just driving by a traffic accident and not stopping. This is stopping and yelling at the ambulance drivers for blocking traffic.
This is absolutely monstrous and anybody who still supports him is a piece of shit, too.
