Now some teams are hitting back where it hurts: his wallet. Pro sports teams from the NBA, MLB, and NHL have stopped staying at Trump-owned hotels.

Guys, there are really SO MANY AMENDMENTS, how can just one man keep track of all of them?Image: AP/REX/ShutterstockAt this point, nine months into the Donald Trump presidency, we shouldn't really be surprised by anything that happens. And, yet, stories like Trump being completely unaware of the 25th Amendment still manage to instill us with shock and awe. This latest revelation about Donald Trump comes from Gabriel Sherman's latest dispatch for Vanity Fair in which it sounds like every

On Sunday morning the Commander/Tweeter/Golfer-In-Chief fired off several tweets about North Korea's Kim Jong-un — who he now apparently only refers to as "Rocket Man" or "Little Rocket Man" now — and casually called three former presidents failures like it was NBD. *nervous laughter* SEE ALSO: 10 reality shows Donald Trump

It is difficult to fathom just how irresponsible and entirely beside the point Puerto Rico's debt is when it comes to its current situation.

Everything he says is terrible, including Sunday morning's tweet about political "ingrates" in Puerto Rico. In the wake of Hurricane Maria, San Juan's mayor, Carmen Yulín Cruz, has been explicit about the horrific conditions of the people in Puerto Rico, and transparent about the lack of support the island has been receiving from Donald Trump. She hasn't attacked Trump outright, but she's
