The Internet Rips Trump For Leaving Puerto Rico Ahead Of Schedule: ‘Premature Evacuation’

Donald Trump’s trip to hurricane-devastated Puerto Rico was a disaster. To recap, before leaving to visit the U.S. territory, he hurled another insult at the island’s residents. Then, once he got to Puerto Rico, the former reality show star blamed the hurricane victims for the budget being “out of whack.”

While handing out supplies, he said, “Flashlights? You don’t need ‘em anymore. “You don’t need ‘em.” The island is almost entirely without power, though. While still at the church where he was gifting the poor with supplies, he started throwing rolls of paper towels at the hurricane victims, as if he was a game show host.

Then he left an hour ahead of schedule.

Journalist Christina Wilkie tweeted:

After a disastrous trip, the Internet took notice of Trump’s quick departure.

Well, there you have it. Our low-stamina, tone-deaf, 71-year-old alleged president got the hell out of Puerto Rico as fast as he could. Presidenting is hard. Who knew?
