Tone Deaf, Paper Towel President

Trump's tone deaf, narcissistic responses to deadly events -- 9/11 attacks, hurricanes -- tell us who and what he is.

"I actually think it was one of the best jobs that's ever been done." That's President Trump on his administration's hurricane response in Puerto Rico, calling it an "incredible unsung success."

This, just after we learned nearly 3000 people died in Puerto Rico as a result of the hurricane a year ago, (not a mere 64 as the government initially claimed) as Trump pats himself on the back for his photo op tossing desperate victims rolls of paper towels to clean up and rebuild after the devastation of Hurricane Maria, one of the deadliest U.S. natural disasters in a century.

This, as the nation braces itself for the massive Hurricane Florence to make landfall, and now wondering if Trump will let the victims down as he let down Puerto Rico, and just what his definition of "incredible unsung success" is to him and the sycophants surrounding him.

This, on the day we mourn and remember 3000 Americans who were killed on 9/11 seventeen years ago in the worst terrorist attack in our nation's history.

This from the narcissist who, on that very day, bragged to the media that since the Twin Towers fell, HIS building downtown was now the tallest building in lower Manhattan.

The tone deaf incompetent in the White House appears to be what the nation needs to brace itself against, seemingly on a daily basis.
