Twitter erupted into mockery after Donald Trump threw paper towels into the crowd of hurricane victims in Puerto Rico on Tuesday, “you get a paper towel, you get a paper towel.” His Puerto Rico visit was a political disaster.
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz blasted his actions as “abominable.” She said, “This terrible and abominable view of him throwing paper towels and throwing provisions at people, it does not embody the spirit of the American nation.” “That is not the land of the free and the home of the brave, that beacon of democracy that people have learned to look up to across the world,” Cruz added.
Well, Twitter both ripped and mocked Trump:
Republicans: Kneeling for the National Anthem is offensive.
