Ooo, burnt!

CNN anchor Christi Paul asked retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, who was in charge of the U.S. hurricane relief efforts after Katrina, to react to the crazy tweets by Trump.

He was... restrained.

After talking about all that the citizens of Puerto Rico were doing to recover, to help themselves, Lt. Gen. Russel Honore said the best thing that could be done to spur recovery is to "give everybody a tank of gas to get the trucks moving, stores opened, streets clean. Until that happens, we're at a standstill. That would be my recommendation."

"What is your reaction to the president's tweets this morning?"

"I have no reaction," he said tersely. "The mayor is living on a cot. I hope the president has a good day at golf."
