We have not forgotten what you did to Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
As Hurricane Florence heads toward the U.S. mainland and evacuation orders are being issued by states on its path, the Orange Occupant of the White House decided to pretend to be presidential and exhibit concern for those folks being affected by tweeting:
My people just informed me that this is one of the worst storms to hit the East Coast in many years. Also, looking like a direct hit on North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. Please be prepared, be careful and be SAFE!

Pushback across the twittersphere was immediate—and is ongoing.
Just a quick sample:
YOUR people?!!! Man, what a disgrace you are to humanity. They aren’t yours. Aretha didn’t work for you. And nearly 3000 Americans died in Puerto Rico. https://t.co/TNxYNVY11j

You sure are making a lot of tweets about this. I don’t remember you tweeting this much when Puerto Rico was about to get slammed.

Bob Ney: Maxine Waters and I dealt extensively with FEMA. There are holes in the system, but they can’t be fixed without more money.
Rick: Will Trump travel to NC and tell residents they’re blowing his budget, like he did with Puerto Rico?@bobney @talkmedianews
