What Do People in Puerto Rico Need More: Thoughts and Prayers or Electricity?

Donald Trump was heckled by an audience member who accused him of not caring about the hurricane which has ravaged Puerto Rico.

The US president dedicated a golf trophy to the hurricane victims of Puerto Rico, Texas and Florida at the Presidents Cup golf tournament in New Jersey.

While presenting the trophy to the US captain, Steve Stricker, he said: “Puerto Rico and the people of Florida who have really suffered over this last short period of time with the hurricanes, I want to just remember them.”

He continued: “And we’re going to dedicate this trophy to all of those people that went through so much that we love, a part of our great state, really a part of our great nation.”

But the latter part of his speech was interrupted by an angry onlooker who audibly shouted out: “You don’t give a s*** about Puerto Rico!”


Donald Trump spent the weekend pretty much shitting on Puerto Rico. For the last two weeks, Puerto Rico has been without power and supplies following the damage of Hurricane Maria and they have sought the aid of the United States to help them through this hardship. Trump has interpreted their need for help as ‘weakness’.

How dare this country, that is a US territory, ask the US for help when they are basically stranded on an island without any way of climbing their way out of turmoil on their own. Donald Trump has said that Texas and Florida are doing fine and Puerto Rico is struggling because their country has terrible infrastructure and hasn’t paid their financial debts so it’s their fault for being hit by a natural disaster and they should figure it out on their own.

So now there’s nothing that we can do except keep them in our thoughts and prayers. I mean, what more can we do? Politicians have made it very clear that there’s no way that they can even get to Puerto Rico. Even though Health Secretary, Tom Price, had to resign because he was abusing private jets. There are politicians in DC that hop in a private jet in their driveway and land the jet in their backyard to take the trash out but nope, no way to get to the Caribbean.

But again, they have all of our thoughts and prayers so like, fuck electricity and food and all of that nonsense. Puerto Rico doesn’t need resources or power, they have people on Twitter and Facebook thinking about them and praying and stuff. They’re good.

Yup, problem solved. Onto the next problem. Thoughts and prayers > electricity.
