As Hurricane Florence is about to blast the Carolinas with possible catastrophic consequences, President Donald Trump has tweeted that Democrats have made up the fact that nearly 3,000 people died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico just to make him look bad.
That was followed by this tweet:
Even Republicans lambasted Trump for his self-serving remarks, that for those of us in the path of Hurricane Florence are not exactly comforting. This tweet from Florida Gov. Rick Scott:
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) told reporters that she believes the figure of nearly 3,000 is sound.
“What kind of mind twists that statistic into, ‘Oh, fake news is trying to hurt my image’?” she said. “How can you be so self-centered and try to distort the truth so much? It’s mind-boggling.”
Then, there is the message sent to Trump today by my wife, Jackie:
"NOW that is the dumbest response I have EVER seen! You really do think you are on everyone's mind in any situation? Get a F'n life! Most people I know would not be that concerned about you. They have more important people in their lives like their children, husbands or wives, sisters, brothers, etc! Get over yourself. We have!"
