Why is there no Puerto Rico thread

You have a humanitarian crisis of historic proportions in your own country and we get a "meh, they have debt with wall street" from the president with 5 days delay and minimal media coverage, FEMA doesn't get command to act and there's a general level of indifference in the air. What is this shit even.

I honestly don't think that Trump even knew that Puerto Rico was an American territory, whose people are American citizens, until maybe 24-36 hours ago. The guy is an idiot.

EDIT: Oh, and, the media is in it for viewers/clicks. The spat with the NFL is more popular because it ties into people's political outrage on both sides, and thus drives up ratings.

Probably true. The dotard still being in office as president seriously makes me question the sanity of the American people.

Ahem, because a load of football players knelt during the national anthem. Clearly the more important news here.

I heard they were BWK (black while kneeling), what an outrage.

History will not look back on this with kindly eyes...

Also: they're poor and brown... not exactly the demographic Trump and Republicans are used to helping.

But but... they gave us Ricky Martin and half of West Side Story.

I'm sure Trump doesn't know anything about either of those.

And Puerto Ricans speak Spanish....just like Mexicans and you know what the WLB thinks of them!

Turns out there might be another reason.

You know how the WLB hates bad memories.
