Trump Dedicated A Golf Trophy To Hurricane Victims. Neat.

Puerto Rico just suffered massive destruction as a result of hurricane Maria, and is in desperate need of aid. A little while ago, Trump wondered why the foreign country-- oh wait I'm sorry, I meant the U.S. territory full of naturalized U.S. citizens-- needed "everything to be done for them" by the federal government. You know, like how Texas and Florida got no help from the feds (hint: they did).

Anyways, that's the bad news. The good news is Trump dedicated a golf trophy to the hurricane victims. Neat! It's gold and shiny and it was won in the illustrious Presidents Cup golf tournament. For my fellow non-wealthy people: golf (pronounced gee-ooulf) is a physical activity that rich people ritualistically take part in. The object of the game is to hit a tiny ball with a big metal club, and hope that ball falls down into a hole, because the ball is bad and deserves bad things to happen to it.

It's a nice gesture of President Trump to offer this trophy to hurricane victims (no, the victims will NOT get to keep the trophy, don't be stupid), especially when coupled with his statement that regarding the hurricane stuff, "we have it under really great control, Puerto Rico." I mean, sure there are lots of residents who say they haven't gotten any aid, and there are tons of shipping containers full of supplies sitting in San Juan that can't be distributed due to a lack of vehicles and fuel, but hey! At least they get a trophy! And trophies are for winners!
