Is it war yet? "Little Rocket Man" seems to think so, and Trump's repeated poking the panda is inching us ever closer to nuclear war. Of course, Trump is at war with everyone now, so why be surprised? He's a psychopath, remember. And never forget. He may the the first president to wage war in 150 characters or less, without lifting anything other than his text finger.

He's certainly mastered the class war, with his latest rants against the NFL of all things. And he'd rather take a beating than utter the words "Puerto Rico."

Now there's a problem a president should handle. Not flapping his jaws about flag protests, but doing something to mediate the horrific suffering of those hurricane Maria victims in our US territory. But, alas, so many of them aren't white. ... what's a Nazi sympathizer supposed to do? Rant against football players, it seems. Ms. Huckabee-Sanders had to defend her boss' callous attitude to the White House press corps today:

"Sanders also called the Trump administration's response to the storm 'unprecedented,' even as it has been far less public than the responses to Irma and Harvey. Maria has left much of Puerto Rico -- a territory of 3.4 million U.S. citizens -- without power and with limited access to food and water.

"'We've done unprecedented movement in terms of federal funding to provide for the people of Puerto Rico and others that have been impacted [by] these storms, we'll continue to do so,' Sanders said, noting that FEMA Administrator and Brock Long and Homeland Security Adviser Tom Bossert had traveled to the island to assess the damage and the response efforts.

"She also pushed back against the idea that Trump is sending a message by tweeting attacks against NFL players for kneeling during the national anthem and not tweeting about Puerto Rico or the U.S. Virgin Islands, which also took a big hit. 'He's not emphasizing sports. You're missing the entire purpose of the message,' Sanders said.

"Trump, however, has been noticeably less engaged with Maria's devastation.

"After hurricanes Harvey and Irma ripped through Texas and Florida, Trump told several advisers he was very pleased with the administration's handling of the storms, and senior administration officials were buoyed by the idea that the response caused his poll numbers to climb.

"But Trump has not seemed as focused on Maria, administration officials say, though they note he has called governor, Ricardo Rossello, to ask about the damage.

"'We know that there are capabilities in the surrounding areas, helicopters, planes and so forth. And our petition is for us to be able to use them and be flexible in using them with making sure that resources arrive to those areas of that are more vulnerable in Puerto Rico,' Rossello told POLITICO on Sunday night.

"But criticism against Trump has mounted from other corners. And reports that a White House disaster aid request might not reach Congress until October further fanned the flames.

"'Hey @realDonaldTrump you can't wait that long,' wrote Lin-Manuel Miranda, the 'Hamilton' playwright of Puerto Rican descent, on Twitter. 'There will be a lot of American deaths on your watch if you wait that long.'

"Just spoke w/ fmr Gov @luisfortuno51: 'PR on brink of humanitarian disaster.' USVI too. DC must put aside controversies, prioritize rescue,' former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney tweeted.
