Amid major controversy over how he has been handling the devastation in Puerto Rico, President Trump did something cringeworthy today. While talking about serious subjects — “our hearts remain heavy and sad for the victims of the horrible mass murder in Las Vegas,” and “we are also praying for the people of Puerto Rico”– he played around with an accent. He tried to say Puerto Rico in a faux Hispanic accent.
He’s been doing an acceptable job of being a comforter-in-chief lately. Why make it worse by trying to be funny? Even Melania looked concerned by her husband’s antics.
