All eyes were on NFL sidelines that Sunday, a couple of days after President Donald Trump strongly criticized players who have been protesting during the anthem, and said team owner’s should “fire the sons of bitches.” Many players and coaches from across the league — and some team owners, too — came together during pregame ceremonies, locking arms or putting their hands on each other’s shoulders.

Hurricane Maria tore through the American territory of Puerto Rico. The island’s power was knocked out. Hospitals and dialysis centers were shut. Entire towns were stranded by mudslides. Water ran dry. President Trump ranked federal recovery efforts as “10 out of 10,” and blamed Puerto Ricans for the lack of aid. As of now, it’s been over 3 months since the storm devastated the island, and half the land is still without electricity, over 1 million people are still living in the dark, hundreds are bunkered down in shelters, and the health infrastructure remains crippled.

Of the 340 days President Trump has been in office, he has visited one of his company’s properties approximately one out of every three days he has been in office. Last count: 111 days he has done so. Because Trump did not divest from his businesses when he took office, he personally profits from these trips. He famously said he wouldn’t have time to golf because he’d be too busy running the country. And in his book, “Think Like a Billionaire,” he wrote: “Don’t take vacations. What’s the point? If you’re not enjoying your work, you’re in the wrong job.” Artist Jonathan Horowitz produced this hellish presidential portrait.
