Most Americans have come to realize that Donald Trump is completely delusional. He seems to fabricate a reality in order to ignore all the horrible things he’s doing to America. However, his most recent claims might just be his worst yet.
Democratic Senator Bernie Sanders came forth on Wednesday to rip into President Trump for boasting about his administration’s efforts in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria, which resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people on the island.
“Trump tweeted this morning he did a ‘great job’ handling the hurricane crisis in Puerto Rico,” Sanders wrote. “Meanwhile, new estimates put the Hurricane Maria death toll at nearly 3,000. What a disgrace.”
Sanders also posted a video that had shown the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, as well as numerous interviews from Trump and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who has been a vocal critic of the administration’s disaster response.
The president on Tuesday and Wednesday praised the work of his administration handling hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico this past year as he sought to reassure the public that the federal government that they were prepared for Hurricane Florence as it heads toward the Carolinas.

“We got A Pluses for our recent hurricane work in Texas and Florida (and did an unappreciated great job in Puerto Rico, even though an inaccessible island with very poor electricity and a totally incompetent Mayor of San Juan). We are ready for the big one that is coming!”
The president faced scrutiny from both Democrats and Puerto Rican officials on Tuesday after he claimed that his administration did its “best job” in responding to the island last year.
“I think that Puerto Rico was an incredible, unsung success,” Trump explained.

Trump lives in a fantasy world where he’s omnipotent and infallible. He needs meds badly…

Trump lives in la, la land and does't grasp reality or he is a totally corrupt individual.

I can’t stand him. I can’t understand how people support him, taking children from their parents, several hundreds are still homeless.
