(If she just didn't want chlorine in her coffee water, that's one thing. But to rant at you as if you'd suggested she scoop it out of the toilet bowl is another.)
Let's just say we could tell by her reservation that she has some either mental health or substance abuse issues. Or both, maybe.

Now Trump is saying that "we" can't aid Puerto Rico "forever". Has he made similar threats to Texas and Florida? And again it's "we" helping "them". Does he still not get that Puerto Rican's are American citizens?

We can't help PR "forever" (translation: >3 weeks), but we can't possibly pull out of Iraq after what, 15 years?
