Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump fired off another series of tweets defending his action in Puerto Rico following the massive devastation of Hurricane Maria, but one tweet in particular caught people’s attention for its completely implausible premise.
Many on Twitter—including Kim Kardashian herself—were quick to point out the flawed logic in the president’s tweet. Though he remains steadfast in his disapproval of the mainstream media in every form, from print to television to internet, that bickering is likely going unnoticed by Puerto Ricans, most of whom have been without clean water and electricity for a week, let alone access to TV broadcasts and Twitter.
They don’t have power to watch the news!!! Please stop tweeting & golfing while people are dying! Please step up & help! https://t.co/AP8PnapWaO— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) September 30, 2017
They're not watching the news because they no longer have televisions, power, or homes, you fucking dolt. https://t.co/ZXKnjGamme— Jon Favreau (@jonfavs) September 30, 2017
The afternoon thread included a shout-out to his own administration for its efforts on the island and the president’s plan to visit Puerto Rico early next week. It notably came after a rough morning of opposition from such high-profile voices as Hamilton creator (and New Yorker of Puerto Rican heritage) Lin-Manuel Miranda, who suggested Trump “is going straight to hell,” after a tweetstorm in which he publicly criticized the mayor of San Juan, calling her “nasty” and saying she showed “poor leadership ability.”
One has to wonder when the president will learn about the Streisand Effect.
