Memo to.... UGH.

OK. Under the terms of The New Normal, here’s how shit is supposed to go down. Donald Trump visited Puerto Rico hurricane victims yesterday, and said a lot of clueless, insensitive shit like “Have a good time” and the like. So what I’m supposed to do is collect three of the quotes and post them here and insult the shitty president doing a shitty job at being a human and make jokes at his expense.

But I’m not in the mood for the new normal, because that motherfucker chucked rolls of paper towels at hurricane victims.

I am a hardcore cynic, but I’m not a hardened cynic. And when I saw the footage of Trump throwing rolls of paper towels to the assembled crowd of Puerto Ricans, I was physically repulsed.

I mean, intellectually, it’s problematic on all kinds of levels. Why were these people at this event? Were they there because they wanted to be, or because locals feared the results of a bad crowd? I mean, all week we’ve been hearing about how everyone on the island has to stand in line for hours and hours for ice, rationed food, fuel, etc. So either they were doing OK and there as props in which case the paper towels were unneccessary, or they were in need and the paper towels were less than useless.

but just the obscene spectacle of it. The condescension. The idea that nobody stopped it from happening, putting the lie to the CNN headline “Trump focuses on optics in Puerto Rico visit.” I mean, above and beyond the idea that Trump focuses on anything.

So fuck this guy and fuck all the cult members still supporting him. They’re all culpable. And we’ve got to take their power away at every opportunity.
