This is a new low, as Donald Trump threw rolls of paper towels at desperate citizens of hurricane ravaged Puerto Rico. We’ve got the video of him acting like he was shooting hoops with the much-needed supplies.
Just when we thought Donald Trump, 71, couldn’t be any more of an embarrassment, he proved that there’s still so much insensitive and crass behavior in him that he has yet to unleash. While visiting Puerto Rico on Oct. 3 after the U.S. territory was ravaged by Hurricane Maria nearly two weeks ago, he made a stop at a small supply depot where he made a total ass of himself. As he stood in front of a table covered with much-needed goods including batteries, cans of tuna and other supplies, he started lobbing rolls of paper towels into the crowd. Many of the victims of this catastrophe have no electricity, no running water and are in desperate need of supplies and here’s our president, throwing paper towels to desperate people as if he was using a t-shirt gun to lob souvenirs into the crowd at a sports game! One Twitter user even said it looked like he was shooting hoops at a Dave & Busters!
“A lot of love in this room,” he said while he was tossing out the towels as if he was doing the suffering victims the world’s biggest favor and he was being worshipped in return. Who does this?! Can you picture any other president — Republican or Democrat — who would throw desperately needed supplies to natural disaster victims as if it was some type of fun game? See pics of Trump, here.
This wasn’t the only completely appalling thing Trump did while in Puerto Rico. He compared their death count to that of Hurricane Katrina like it was a contest! “Every death is a horror, but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina, and you look at the tremendous — hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people that died, and you look at what happened here, with really a storm that was just totally overpowering, nobody’s ever seen anything like this. What is your death count as of this moment? 17? 16 people certified, 16 people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people and all of our people working together. Sixteen versus literally thousands of people. You can be very proud.” WHAT?!? They can be PROUD that more people didn’t die? Who talks like that?
Here’s the video of Trump hurling paper towel rolls into the crowd, and needless to say, many Americans are horrified at such a gross and undignified act and took to Twitter to call him out.

I've seen a lot of idiocy from Trump but for some reason the paper towel video really got under my skin.
God help us.
