Here’s your Friday reminder that President Trump doesn’t have the character required to be anywhere near the White House.
Watch President Trump say Puerto Rico in an affected Spanish accent three times in a row, as pointed out by MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin in a clip he compiled from CBS footage:

If Obama had visited the South and repeatedly used a fake Southern accent, Republicans would have lost their minds, and that doesn’t even come close to the degree of racism that Trump displayed with his performance.
The same president who slow-walked aid told people that it might be too expensive to rebuild, and criticized the island for wrecking his budget used a fake accent to mock the people of Puerto Rico.
This is not normal, and the American people should reject Trump’s behavior at every opportunity.
