White House Meeting:
Staffer: Mr. President, Puerto Rico’s in trouble. We should do something. Wave the Jones Act so we can move in supplies.
President: How will it make me look?
Staffer: We waved the Jones Act a few weeks back for the other hurricanes.
President: Puerto Rico is in debt and you are telling me to look soft for lazy people. Leave.
[President golfs and blames the shipping industry for him not waiving the Jones Act over the next several days. Praises himself repeatedly. Meanwhile, Mayor, wading through water, criticizes him for being an ass.]
Interview a few weeks later:
President: See, it’s the lazy mayor’s fault. She wants to yell at me instead of helping people.
Cable Media: Look at the mayor squabble with the President. What’s her problem?
