The Democratic mayor of Portland, Oregon said on Sunday that it’s President Trump who is responsible for turning his city into a fiery, lawless, hotspot of death and suffering. He believes Portland has deteriorated because Donald Trump became a white supremacist around 2015 after Democrats specifically asked him not to.
Speaking at a news conference, Mayor Ted Wheeler asked, “If Trump’s America is so great, how is it that I’m in charge of a major American city? It’s getting to the point where you can’t even safely wear a man bun in Portland. They catch on fire easily.”
“This President kept calling me all weekend asking for permission to send in federal troops. Each time I screamed into the phone, ‘call me when you’re willing to help!’ and I eventually threw my phone into the river. Now he owes me an iPhone X.”
Wheeler also made the point that it’s unlikely a man named “Ted” would make for a weak leader.
Update: Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf became irritated with the mayor’s remarks and tweeted, “My last name is really Anderson. If Wheeler doesn’t wise-up soon, he’ll learn why they call me Wolf.”
