  • Colbert fact-checks Trump's 'sickening' Hurricane Maria comments

"If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list", said Trump, attempting to dismiss the long-term effects of the disaster, where the island was without electricity and water for months, as the administration struggled to restore power.

"I hate talking about politics and all that, but I think this is more than politics".

Cora, who is Puerto Rican, called the comments "disrespectful". That is only an estimate, however, since they did not study how each individual died, although they hope to conduct that study in the future.

"Hey, man, thank you for helping us". "He's an illegitimate president handling this situation in this way". He's the president of the United States.

"Only Donald Trump could see the tragedy in Puerto Rico and conclude that he is the victim".

Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC, who talks to Trump often, said, "I don't think it's bad to say we could have done better in Puerto Rico".

Stewart was being interviewed Wednesday about Trump's earlier statements that his administration's handling of the hurricane that hit the US territory was "an incredible, unsung success" and "one of the best jobs that's ever been done". "It wasn't because this president doesn't care about Puerto Rico".

Cora told reporters he respects Trump, but noted that he doesn't "agree with a lot of stuff he says about us". Carlson shot back that he views "humiliation porn, that's why I watch you on CNN", then laughed, loudly.

"That's comparing him to Hitler, someone who gasses his own people that starve their people, the orders for thousands of their own people to die", Huntsman responses. The upshot was the president claimed the numbers were concocted merely to make him look bad.

The report said numerous deaths occurred weeks later because of devastating damage to the Caribbean island's electrical grid that curbed treatment for those with life-threatening injuries or medical conditions.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney representing Stormy Daniels in her lawsuits against Trump and his former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, appeared on Carlson's Fox News show Thursday night, and before he even said a word, the chyron on the screen described Avenatti as a "creepy porn lawyer".

"At the time that this was happening, he was more concerned with National Football League athletes protesting and kneeling then he was concerned about what's going on in the United States", she continued.

It wasn't as simple for Republicans, who did all sorts of familiar dances - ones they've been doing since the presidential election - when responding to questions in the hallways of the Capitol.
