Trump never met Miles Taylor, of course. Or maybe he met him once when he was delivering coffee. Or maybe he doesn’t exist. He’s an actor hired by the Fake News Media!
Regardless, Taylor has been tearing Trump a variety of new assholes — of all shapes and sizes — over the past few days, in the process spilling Trump’s grisly id out onto the abattoir floor for all to see.
Today he joined host Hallie Jackson on MSNBC for a little look behind the offal-festooned curtain:
HALLIE JACKSON: “I’m wondering, what is the most, in the conversations you were involved in, disturbing idea or thought or discussion that you heard from President Trump that is resonating and sitting with you still today?”
TAYLOR: “We could probably go on for days about that, although I’m going to tell you one thing that just popped into my head, Hallie. There was a time when of course we were spending a lot of our days down in Puerto Rico after the hurricanes wreaked devastation down there, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and other places. There was a trip that we made down there in August of 2018, and I remember before we went, the president said something, and your viewers are going to be somewhat familiar with this. The president has talked before about wanting to purchase Greenland, but one time before we went down he told us, not only did he want to purchase Greenland, he actually said he wanted to see if we could sell Puerto Rico — could we swap Puerto Rico for Greenland, because in his words Puerto Rico was dirty and the people were poor. These are Americans, Hallie. We don’t talk about our fellow Americans that way. And the fact that the president of the United States wanted to take a U.S. territory of Americans and swap it for a foreign country is beyond galling. This was a real thing. This is the president, this is the man who sits behind the Resolute desk, and these are the thoughts he has when Americans are in danger and recovering.”
JACKSON: “You don’t think it was a joke? You didn’t take it that way?”
TAYLOR: “I did not take it as a joke, and on multiple occasions the president expressed interest in buying Greenland. And I’ll go even further about Puerto Rico, the president expressed deep animus toward the Puerto Rican people behind the scenes. These are people who were recovering from the worst disaster of their lifetimes. He is their president, he should be standing by them, not trying to sell them off to a foreign country.”
The shocking part of this to me is that it’s not shocking. Trump clearly doesn’t care about Puerto Ricans and never has — even after someone told him, most likely for the first time, that they were American citizens.
Of course, this is very on-brand for Trump, and his most ardent fans will probably love it. Displaced Puerto Ricans voting in Florida? Not so much.
On November 3, maybe each of us should send Donald Trump a roll of paper toweling so he can sop up his briny tears.
It’s the least we can do for a guy who’s about to be unemployed … in Greenland.
