Former Obama Speechwriter Bashes Trump Over PR Tweet: ‘You F*cking Dolt’

President Donald Trump is doing everything he should be when it comes to Puerto Rico. He wasted no time in getting hurricane relief supplies to the island and even waived the Jones Act to assist in quicker deliveries.

Unfortunately, there is so much damage that it is hard for the boats to dock, and also hard to start rebuilding. That doesn’t stop the Democrats from throwing shade at Trump and making it seem like he isn’t doing anything at all.

Jon Favreau, a former speechwriter for President Barack Obama, fired back on Saturday at President Trump’s tweet telling Puerto Rico residents not to believe the so-called “fake news” media, calling the president a “f—ing dolt.”

His exact tweet read, “They’re not watching the news because they no longer have televisions, power, or homes, you f—— dolt.”

For those of you who do not know what the word “dolt” means, it is a word to describe a stupid person. While Trump may not have the smooth talking abilities that Obama did, he is definitely not stupid.

Trump never said  not to believe what they see on television. He said for them to not believe the fake news, which they are being told by their mayor.

Who’s the real dolt here, Jon?

In a series of tweets spanning Saturday, Trump defended his administration’s response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico and accused the media of downplaying – and even undermining – first responders’ relief efforts on the island.

Trump came under scrutiny this week over his administration’s relief efforts in Puerto Rico. The administration ramped up its efforts on Thursday, more than a week after Hurricane Maria struck the island.

Trump is to go to Puerto Rico himself on Tuesday.
