Favreau replied harshly, The Hill said, reminding the former reality TV game show host that no one can watch any kind of news without electricity, which 95 percent of the island is still lacking. He also called the president a f*cking dolt.
They're not watching the news because they no longer have televisions, power, or homes, you fucking dolt. https://t.co/ZXKnjGamme
