As Puerto Ricans continued to suffer from the devastating impact of Hurricane Maria, Donald Trump took to Twitter over the weekend to air his grievances, including insulting the Mayor of San Juan, calling the Puerto Rican people lazy, and, of course, railing against "fake news."
On Saturday, frustrated with the negative coverage of his disaster relief response, Trump urged Puerto Ricans "not to believe the #FakeNews!"
This tweet was too much for Kim Kardashian-West, who fired back at the President:

There were the haters, of course...

Ellen DeGeneres tweeted out support for the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz, after Trump sent a series of tweets attacking her:
For her part, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz had this to say to the President:
“We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy. This is what we got last night: four pallets of water, three pallets of meals and 12 pallets of infant food — which I gave them to the people of Comerio, where people are drinking off a creek. So I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell.”
