Lin-Manuel Miranda Shreds Trump For Criticizing San Juan Mayor: ‘You Have Been GOLFING’

This morning, President Donald Trump got his weekend started by grabbing his phone and shooting off a series of tweets slamming San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz for her criticism of the federal government’s response to Hurricane Maria. Trump reacted to Cruz’s pleas for help by trashing her leadership and stating the storm victims want “everything to be done for them.”

Miranda, who is of Puerto Rican descent, shot off a series of tweets this morning in which he absolutely assailed the president, highlighting that Trump was lobbing his bombs at Cruz and Puerto Rico from the comfort of his golf club.

He then ended his tweetstorm by asking people to donate to the Hispanic Federation:
