Dear Mr. President:
Watching you meet with the first responders and victims in Las Vegas this week was heartwarming.
While meeting with these people it was clear that your genuine side collided with your heart. The result was you being humble — this is when you’re at your best.
But then there are the other times, like tonight, when your rich side collides with your ego, and you become totally disconnected from reality. The result is you sending out the sort of tweet that makes me bow my head.
You tweeted: “Nobody could have done what I’ve done for
#PuertoRico with so little appreciation. So much work!”
Mr. President, with all due respect, why do you have to make the situation in Puerto Rico all about you?
There are 3 million people on the island of Puerto Rico, and despite how much you boast about how great things are going, the vast majority of people have no electric. Many remain without clean drinking water. People are without shelter. The place is in complete shambles, and the mood is dire.
DML readers who have relatives in PR tell me that many people on the island are sliding into deep depression. Hope is being lost.
You cannot be blamed for two hurricanes, and I am certain you’ve got all hands on deck, but putting out tweets touting about how much “you’ve” done for PR and complaining about not getting the sort of praise your ego yearns is beneath the office you hold.
With all due respect, Sir, sometimes less is more.
