President Trump is infamous by now for his complete lack of a filter and his inability to say the right thing in the right setting — especially in times of trauma and stress.

He continued his streak of saying enormously inappropriate things as part of his insincere efforts to connect with the victims of natural disasters this morning when he told a Hurricane Florence survivor to “have a good time” as they drove away.

“I think he just said have a good time!” said one of the assembled reporters in stunned disbelief.

Have a good time?

These poor people are not off to a golf course to enjoy themselves, as Trump clearly wishes he was. They are fleeing a major environmental catastrophe that has killed dozens of people and has caused “nightmare” destruction in North Carolina.

They are not off to a “good time.”

Of course, this isn’t the first time Trump has used this phrase while meeting with hurricane victims. Last year, Trump infamously told survivors of Hurricane Harvey to “have a good time” while visiting them at a storm shelter and used a visit to Hurricane Maria survivors as a photo-op in which he literally threw emergency supplies at the assembled victims, as if they were contestants on a game show and not people in desperate need of assistance and protection from the wrath of nature.

The president’s perpetual inability to do or say the right thing when meeting people who have endured hardship — something he’s never had to do — is a disgrace to his office and yet another sign that he is fundamentally ill-equipped to lead this nation and to be a source of hope and resilience for the American people.
