We can keep sending billions to Afghanistan, seemingly forever, but not help PR? Trump is a Moron.

1. Why don't like-minded liberals like you all pool your resources and help those poor people in PR?

No need to respond, I already know the answer.

8. Easy. I wasn't elected President of the US. I didn't take an oath to protect our land and citizens.

 

You can try to make this about me - it's about the Moron Trump who is shirking his duty, likely because Puerto Ricans aren't white enough for him.

16. See what happens when you put all your faith in an all-powerful federal government?

Sitting on your ass bitching about Trump is not helping out a single person who's thirsty or hungry in Puerto Rico.

19. The response to your post was alerted for racist content

I voted to leave, but apparently enough snowflake socks voted to hide.

There wasn't anything in the post that could be considered racist, certainly not compared to some of the posts here, even the ones that use dog whistles and code words get a pass.

Note: I'm not insinuating that you alerted, but there seemed no other place to put my comment.

13. It's not about me - it's about the Moron who swore an oath to defend America and Americans.

Trump is a failure and likely a racist.

Go on, keep cheering for him and attacking people who call him out for being a d-bag.

2. What did PR go $118B in debt on?

It sure as hell wasnt infrastructure

For the last 30 years, the Puerto Rican government has been completely inept at handling regular societal needs, so I just don’t see it functioning in a crisis like this one. Even before the hurricane hit, water and power systems were already broken. And our $118 billion debt crisis is a result of government corruption and mismanagement.

6. So what? American citizens are in peril, and the Moron wants to abandon them.

 

Is a tax cut for the wealthy more important?

Is a damn useless wall more important?

10. In other words, you don't understand the differece between US territory and foreign countries.

 

In other words, you think holding the Moron accountable and demanding he do his damn job of protecting our land and our people is "poutrage."

You did not care then but you do now.

The rest of your faux poutrage is irrelevant at that point.
