Meanwhile In Puerto Rico

 White House lets Jones Act waiver expire for Puerto Rico  
The White House has let a 10-day shipping waiver expire for Puerto Rico, meaning foreign ships can no longer bring aid to the hurricane-ravaged island from U.S. ports.
A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security confirmed on Monday that the Jones Act waiver, which expired on Sunday, will not be extended.

Trump Continues To Intimidate Rex Tillerson
President Trump in a new interview offered to compare IQ tests with Rex Tillerson after reports that the secretary of State had called him a "moron."

Subject: Trump vs. Tillerson

Hi Lisa,

Donald Trump has his knickers in a twist over Rex Tillerson’s calling him a “fcking moron.”  But I think Tillerson actually paid Trump a great compliment and Trump just doesn’t realize it.

Recall that a “moron” has an IQ between 51 and 70.  The IQ of an “imbecile” runs between 26 and 50.  An “idiot’s” IQ is 25 or below.  The intensifier “fcking” suggests an IQ that’s relatively low within its range.

Also recall that IQ is defined as Mental Age / Chronological Age X 100.  Thus, a 12-year-old with a Mental Age of 12 has a 100 IQ.

Donald Trump’s Chronological Age is 71 years.  But his Mental Age is clearly no higher than 11 years.  That gives him an IQ of (11 / 71 X 100) = 15.5.  He is solidly within the “idiot” range.

For Trump to qualify as a “fcking moron,” he would have to have a Mental Age of at least 37 years.  But Trump has not shown himself to be that mature since he was, well, probably 37.  Maybe it’s no accident that the Founders set 35 as the minimum age to be president.

So Tillerson, while he was maybe trying to be complimentary, was wrong.  Donald Trump is not a “fcking moron”; he is a “fcking idiot.”

Of course, there is always the Dunning-Krueger effect, where the subject is too stupid to understand how stupid he is.  That could apply to anyone with an IQ below 70.  It definitely applies to Trump and many of his supporters.

So let’s all hang in there.  With only 3 years and 3 months to go, we will get through this.  Unless we don’t.


Thanks for writing, Rick. 

Trump's grasp of spatial awareness is so impressive. "This is an island, surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water.” 

Only 3 years and 3 months? Just shoot me after I have a cup of covfefe.

Republican Shenanigans

Melania Trump has accused her husband’s first wife, Ivana Trump, of “attention-seeking and self-serving noise” after the first Mrs Trump joked that she was first lady.
On a tour to promote her new book, Raising Trump, about raising Donald Trump’s three eldest children, Ivana said she still spoke to her ex-husband about once every 14 days on a “direct number to the White House”.
She told ABC News she was reluctant to call the president too often “because Melania is there, and I don’t want to cause any kind of jealousy

Ivana Trump says Donald would not be the person he is without her and that she raised Ivanka, Don Jr, and Eric.

Monday Night Football Ratings Are Up
...Not only have fans not stopped going to games, but they're watching on TV more than they did last year. Despite Trump's claim that TV ratings are down, the overall figures for the past two weeks say the opposite. Week 3 ratings were up 3% across all games from 2016, including a spike of 63% in the rating for Monday Night Football, the league announced last week. Overall, viewership for Monday Night Football is averaging 11.9 million through the first four weeks, a 5% increase from last year.

My Weather Update:
The province that I live in, Guanacaste, is still under a red alert. We are being told to stock up on water, batteries and food as increased rain will begin on Friday and last through the weekend. 😬 The road still needs repair but at least it is navigable. Tomorrow morning I will go on a supply run.

Donald Trump's week:
- Challenged his Secretary of State to an IQ test
- Blew his VP's walkout stunt by bragging about it
- Misspelled "little"
- Got called a demented toddler by a Senator from his own party
- Tweeted "we have just begun" and then deleted it
- It's only Tuesday.

An NFL spokesman said Tuesday that owners will have a chance to review the current policy, which encourages players to stand for the anthem but doesn't make it mandatory.
