Here's a Video of Trump Chucking Paper Towels at Suffering Hurricane Victims

Today President Trump finally visited Puerto Rico two weeks after Hurricane Maria hit the island. After first saying that Maria wasn't "a real catastrophe like Katrina" during the visit, the president went to a church to meet with victims of the storm, passing out canned food and chucking rolls of paper towels to random people in the crowd, like T-shirts at a baseball game.

The US territory has been reeling since the Category 5 storm struck the island, but it's doubtful those paper towels will do much to serve the 95 percent of the island's population still without power and 55 percent without clean water.
