Trump Calls Photo Op `Calm Before The Storm'

Melania Trump stood behind her husband today as he delivered remarks at an event honoring Hispanic Heritage Month. Friday, Oct. 6, the Cheeto-in-Chief was hosting a salutation at the White House for Hispanic Heritage Month.

Yeah. definitely made it worse.

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, has been making headlines for her criticism of President Donald Trump's response to Hurricane Maria.

Sarah, why did the president tweet this morning that he'd like to see the Senate Intelligence Committee investigate news outlets - In, I guess, this quest to go after fake news, does he value the First Amendment as much he values the Second Amendment? And during an appearance on MSNBC's AM Joy this morning, Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY) slammed the president for apparently trying to get a few laughs while Puerto Rico is struggling.

President Trump met with his senior military staff and said they would discuss IS, Iran, and North Korea over dinner then he called a group photo with his staff and their spouses, "the calm before the storm" without an explanation. That's going to have to be - you know, you can say goodbye to that. "We are not going to bail out those bondholders". Trump's budget director, Mick Mulvaney, said Wednesday morning - as Puerto Rico's bond prices sunk to a record low - not to take Trump literally.

When asked again what he meant, Trump said only: "You'll find out".

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. Its general-obligation bonds due in 2035, one of the most actively traded securities, changed hands for about 38 cents on the dollar, roughly where the price closed on Wednesday.

"The president's remarks do, however, strengthen Puerto Rico's hand in negotiations with creditors", the adviser said.
