Donald Trump is clearly devoid of any modicum of respect when speaking about Puerto Rico, where millions of American citizens are woefully struggling in the aftermath of Hurrican Maria.
During a ceremony today commemorating “Hispanic Heritage Month,” President Trump laughingly mocked the Latino accent in saying “PUerto Rico,” laughing, and then saying it in his usual accent.
Between the glacial pace of aid to the U.S. territory and his Twitter feud with the mayor of San Juan, it’s crystal clear this is just a wink and a smile to his racist supporters.
