For the second time in one day, President Donald Trump has stuck his foot in his mouth. Guess it's good he has two feet.
The first time, he referred to the Las Vegas shooting as "a miracle."
This time, he sat across the table from Puerto Rican leaders — who've spent weeks begging him for help — and told them that the U.S. has spent way too much on Puerto Rico and that they should be proud of their low death toll, which is minimal compared to the "real catastrophe" that was Katrina.
It was right before his flight to Puerto Rico on the morning of Tuesday, October 3 that Donald Trump referred to the Las Vegas shooting as "a miracle."

First, he joked about what this disaster in Puerto Rico is costing.
