Golfing During a Humanitarian Crisis

Donald Trump Attacks First Responders as He Golfs

As Puerto Ricans suffer in a humanitarian crisis and San Juan’s mayor wades flooded, waste-riddled streets to find and help stranded residents, President Donald J. Trump, whose utter failure to help Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria destroyed the island lengthened an unnecessary disaster, relaxed at his Bedminster golf club, played a few rounds, and slandered Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz on Twitter, spreading falsehoods and showing his vile hatred whenever a woman – or a Latina – dares criticize his slovenly laziness.

In the two weekends since Maria ravaged Puerto Rico, Donald Trump played golf, despite his many Twitter promises to never play golf when president, especially not during a crisis.  Puerto Ricans have little food, almost no clean water, hours of wait time for gas to try to navigate ruined roads so they can go to work, no electricity, and no ability to communicate with others as cell phone towers have almost all been destroyed.

So, naturally, Trump finds it right to play a few rounds of golf and mingle with the millionaires, billionaires, and lobbyists who now frequent his golf clubs, paying the Trump Organization – from which Donald J. Trump still profits – hundreds of thousands a year to enjoy face time with the president, something no other American enjoys.

The populist president enriches himself as some of the poorest Americans starve and try desperately to avoid death.



Mayor Cruz, Committed to Puerto Rico

Luckily, those in Puerto Rico have public servants committed to livelihood.  San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz has put her life on the line by wading through toxic waters with a bullhorn to find those stranded by Maria floodwaters.  She also lives in a shelter with others who lost their houses, sleeping on a cot, and eating the same food to understand how her constituents suffer.

Seeing firsthand the suffering of her fellow Puerto Ricans, Cruz, desperate for help, used the national media to outline the severity of the crisis and urge Trump and his administration to actually provide the island with help.



In response to the Trump administration saying “…it is really a good news story in terms of our ability to reach people and the limited number of deaths that have taken place in such a devastating hurricane,” Cruz said:

“Well maybe from where she’s standing it’s a good news story.  When you’re drinking from a creek, it’s not a good news story. When you don’t have food for a baby, it’s not a good news story. When you have to pull people down from buildings — I’m sorry, that really upsets me and frustrates me.  I would ask [Duke, acting DHS Secretary] to come down here and visit the towns and then make a statement like that, because frankly, it is an irresponsible statement in contrast with the statements of support that I have been getting yesterday when I got that call from the White House. Dammit, this is not a good news story. This is a ‘people are dying’ story. It’s a life-or-death story.”
This plea did not settle well with Trump.  Angered by a Latina woman criticizing his response to an American tragedy, has, as usual, took to Twitter from the comforts of an opulent resort and slandered the mayor.



His tweets show hypocrisy and unbridled anger at person suffering with Puerto Ricans.  He relaxes as a resort; she sleep on a cot and tries to help constituents find food.  Trump plays golf and feasts; Cruz cries as she sees, firsthand, the island’s pain.
Trump has no understanding of Puerto Rico’s suffering.  He sees negative news headlines and grows angry that anyone would dare criticize him.  That the critique comes from a Latina woman only makes matters worse.

Unfit for Office

He’s a man not fit for office.  No worthwhile president would play golf and slander a first responder on Twitter as she seeks only to raise awareness and procure help for her suffering people.
Trump doesn’t care about those in pain.  He doesn’t care about Americans, especially Americans with darker skins and without electoral votes.  He’s a worthless president whose actions bring greater shame on our country with each day that passes.

  1. If our (and YOUR president) is unfit for office, then DO NOT SAY THAT BERNIE and HIS BANK FRAUD INVESTIGATION OF HIM and HIS WIFE ARE UNFIT ALSO. THE SAME WITH EVILLARY CLINTON. SHE DESTROYED GOVERNMENT PROPERTY WITH A HAMMER, FEDERAL OFFENSE, LIED ABOUT BENGHAZI, HER and HER HUSBAND STOLE THE RELIEF MONEY FROM EARTHQUAKE VICTIMS OF HAITI. The Mayor of San Juan is being to POLITICAL and is a TOTAL DISGUSTING HYPOCRITE. She gave a press conference WHILE STANDING IN FRONT OF MANY, MANY PALLETS OF ITEMS TO BE DISTRIBUTED TO THE PEOPLE, BUT, SHE WILL NOT DO HER JOB TO DELIVER THESE GOODS. SHE ALSO WORE A “BRAND NEW TEE SHIRT”, BUT, THERE IS ‘NO POWER/ELECTRICITY’ TO MAKE ANY TEE SHIRTS? HAD AN INTERVIEW WITH ANDERSON COOPER WEARING THIS TEE SHIRT. DID ANDERSON HAVE THAT TEE SHIRT MADE FOR HER? TO PUSH ANOTHER FALSE NARRATIVE ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT? OUR PRESIDENT, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, HAS DONE MORE IN THE LEAST AMOUNT OF TIME, AS COMPARED TO THE MUSLIM MULLAH FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT OF BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA EVER DONE IN HIS FRAUDULENT 8 YEARS. MUSLIM MULLAH BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA SPENT “OVER 800 HOURS” ON THE GOLF COURSE, AND DURING THESE HOURS ALSO, HE PAID A MILLION DOLLARS (PROBABLY TAXPAYERS MONEY) TO PLAY A ROUND OF GOLF WITH TIGER WOODS, INSTEAD OF GOING TO HIS NATIONAL SECURITY BRIEFINGS. AND YOU HAVE THE AUDACITY TO SAY ANYTHING ABOUT OUR (AND YOUR) PRESIDENT PLAYING GOLF? ONLY THOSE THAT BEEN DRINKING THE DEMOCRAT/LIBERAL/SOCIALIST/FASCIST KOOL-AID WOULD SAY THIS ABOUT OUR PRESIDENT.

      1. This is not hate of ANY form. I do not accuse me of having such. It seems people like you need to HAVE SOME CHURCH because of the HATE that is in y’alls life/hearts. People like you are ALWAYS pointing your fingers and saying things like “Christians?preachers/Pastors are NOT to supposed to get mad.” Jesus Himself got mad and He made Him a whip and He CLEARED THE TEMPLE! The Bible says that I am to (and other Christians) are to be Christ-Like. We are even told in the Book of Ephesians 4:26—‘Be angry, and do not sin: do not let the sun go down on your wrath.’ Also, in the Book of Romans 2:1 (The word “Judge” means to accuse), “Therefore, you are inexcusable O man/woman, whoever you are that judge/accuse, for in whatsoever you judge/accuse another you condemn yourself; for you who judge/accuse practice the same things.”
        Since you are guilty of the same thing, it shows if you are the writer of this article or whatever you do and that also makes you a HYPOCRITE in all of the Correct definitions!
