I would just like to write here in plain English, as someone who has spent a lot of time in Puerto Rico surfing and enjoying the culture, and the safety of it being part of America, that Trump's statement today is over the top even for him. The roughly three in ten citizens of this country who support him are white supremacist pond-scum who we will soon see whether they have the ability to survive what might be the most important mid term ever, lets see how they react if the whole thing goes Blue and it becomes the early end of White.

Death tolls have always been like this. Some actress drives into the back of a semi and every one in the country now has a device that hangs down and protects that. A bunch of five and six year olds get murdered by a guy in Connecticut and we can’t get any kind of legislation at all.
