Well, it’s probably safe to say that FEMA Administrator and creepy guy who works at the front desk of the tire shop down the street, Brock Long, wishes he would have chosen his words more carefully this morning while attempting to defend the administration’s slow response to the unfolding humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico.

Needless to say, some folks were quick to point out that there are other historical events that might have a legitimate claim to the top spot on the “logistically challenging” list.

Then again, Trump is apparently an admirer of the Nazi cause, so I suppose the first one is illegitimate (the Nazis “had a permit”) and knowing the President’s penchant for conspiracy theories, it’s conceivable that this administration believes the second one didn’t actually happen.
So you know, cut Brock some slack.
