Donald Trump is not even trying to hide his contempt of brown people.

Only three weeks after Puerto Rico, a US territory whose residents are American citizens, was hit by the strongest hurricane in their history, Trump is already telling them they need to figure it out themselves.

In a series of unhinged tweets this morning, Trump unleashed on Puerto Rico, even quoting a hard right “journalist” from Sinclair Broadcasting.

This is a very different tone from what he took on Texas and Florida. He made it a point to tell Texas, that “we will be with you every single day after” in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. You’ll recall that Texas is a state that Trump carried in the election, which in his mind makes them worth saving.

If you think Trump isn’t purposefully ignoring Puerto Rico and its residents, take a look at this breakdown from the great Keith Olbermann.
