What's next? "Irma la douce?"

Lack of empathy isn’t a crime
But we think that Trump warrants a rhyme
With the shear nonchalance
Of his Harvey response:
Quote the president, “Have a good time”

The Savant knows that supporters will say that Trump was only trying to bring a mood of optimism to those in Texas recovering from Harvey's devastation but as usual his choice of words conveys a certain insensitivity to the suffering of others that is characteristic of Trump's self-aggrandizing demeanor.

Lucky for him, but not many others, that he will be getting another opportunity this week to demonstrate some honest human emotion.
