Seth Meyers takes a closer look at the aftermath of President Trump’s disastrous response to the humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico, and a simmering feud with his secretary of state,Rex Tillerson.
If you were put off by the sight of Trump flinging paper towels into a group of hurricane survivors, be thankful cooler heads intervened before Trump could lob the first canned chicken at the throng of victims. Trump considers his visit to Puerto Rico to be a precedent-setting success.“It’s the first time a sitting president has done something like this,” Trump bragged.We don’t expect Trump to know the actions of previous presidents, but Trump ‘did something like this’ in Florida, fairly recently!
Trump sets precedents every day. He may be the first sitting resident whose cabinet officials formed a suicide pact. I believe that one of those cabinet members deserves some form of recognition.When Rex Tillerson drawled that Donald Trump “a f*cking moron” it placed Tillerson in the same truthiness league as the lad who pointed out the strutting Emperor’s nudity; when toadying townsfolk had lined up daily to applaud his taste in haberdashery.
