Stephen Colbert calls Trump out for ‘Trumpsplaining’ hurricane relief to Puerto Rico

President Trump visited Puerto Rico this week to show face nearly two weeks after Hurricane Maria devastated the island and left it without power.

On Tuesday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert mocked Trump simply by showing videos of the president’s visit, including one in which Trump said Puerto Rico left his budget “out of whack.”

“The budget is out of whack?” Colbert asked. “That’s like a fireman rescuing you from a burning building and then saying, ‘You do understand what our water bill is going to be now, right? Do you have any idea how many sexy calendars we’re going to have to sell just to pay for this?'”

In another moment, Trump told a couple who lost their house to “have a good time.”

“You’re in a disaster site, you’re not working the floor at your casino! ‘You guys having fun here? Listen, I’m gonna comp you half a gallon of drinking water. Enjoy your hurricane, everybody, don’t forget to tip your FEMA worker!’”
