President Trump has been under fire for the federal government’s rickety response to hurricane devastation in Puerto Rico, but no one can criticize him when it comes to the big stuff.
And by big stuff, we mean golf trophies.
The commander in chief, who spent the aftermath of the hurricane feuding with pro athletes and waxing nostalgic for the days of helmet-to-helmet hits, finally gave ravaged Puerto Ricans the care they deserved when he dedicated the massive gold President’s Cup trophy to them.
“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 part of our great nation,” he declared, presidentially remembering Puerto Rico’s national status mid-sentence.
Now compare Trump’s generosity with that of his predecessor, Barack Obama, who was president for 8 full years and did not dedicate a single golf trophy to hurricane victims in any state or US territory. That alone could have been Trump’s impetus for seeking office.
Trump’s trophy dedication capped an impressive week for Puerto Rico, during which over half of Americans learned it was part of the United States. It also received valuable information that its capital city has a nasty mayor, and that it’s an island surrounded by big water.
And now it gets a golf trophy. Basically, it’s all coming together! Can electricity and clean water be far off?
