In an 11-hour period beginning at 7:19 a.m. and ending at 6:46 p.m. Saturday, the President of the United States ripped off 18 — yes, 18! — tweets dealing with the dire situation in Puerto Rico following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria.
None of them were good.. it has created a monster of a problem for the President..
In the aftermath of a storm that ground Puerto Rico to a halt and turned off power for just about 100% of the people, the leader of the free world decided to blame Puerto Rico..
He attacked San Juan’s Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz..
“They want everything to be done for them” he Tweeted at one point..
Then he slammed news organizations for being critical of him not responding to the crisis in Puerto Rico..
The entire fight became the focal point of the cold opening of last night’s SNL ..
The season premiere of Saturday Night Live was hosted by Ryan Gosling with Jay-Z as the musical guest.
(by the way.. SNL is stale stale stale stale… stale)
18 tweets in 11 hours..
It has not even been one full year yet since the election.. only 9 months of the presidency.. And the year’s tension is at the highest level yet. Football is not a diversion but just another reason to get angry..
Storms? Weather? All political.
This is where we are now..
THIS IS THE TWEETED VERSION OF THE PRESIDENCY.
