Donald Trump's been receiving a lot of criticism for his initial lack of a response to victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
And then when he did finally address the disaster in Puerto Rico, he joked that the territory was costing the U.S. a lot of money and throwing its budget out of whack.
In fact, he thought that the appropriate response when he finally did get around to talking about Puerto Rico, was to bash the mayor of San Juan and start putting blame on Democrats. You know, while people were without food, water, and electricity.
Turns out that his eventual visit to Puerto Rico went over just about as well as his tweets did. The President was photographed shooting paper towels into the crowd like they were basketballs.
He didn't just throw amenities at Puerto Rican citizens, however. He did check out some of the damage first hand.
But people seemed fixated on his paper towel jump shot.

There were some pretty iconic photos taken.
But some weren't all that impressed with Trump's response to Puerto Rico. Even if he did throw supplies into a crowd of people.
