In the wake of yet another devastating hurricane, the people of Puerto Rico are in dire need of help.
The federal government has been quick to send aid, via FEMA and other sources, including U.S. Marines. But that hasn’t stopped hack politicians to use the crisis as an excuse to bash the President.
But it seems like this one democrat is completely off her meds, because while she’s been complaining, she’s been ignoring her own responsibilities.
From Daily Wire:
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, a Democrat, went on a tirade on Saturday, accusing President Trump of allowing Puerto Ricans to die because he just doesn’t care.
But now it turns out Cruz is not in the loop and hasn’t even bothered to participate in meetings with officials from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) or other federal agencies…
Cruz got in an extended argument with Trump on Saturday when she held a press conference — ironically in front of pallets containing massive supplies sent since the hurricane struck — saying the president has “abandoned” Puerto Rico. Trump fired back with several posts on Twitter that the federal government is going all out in its attempts to help the U.S. territory.
It also seems like she had time to print up t-shirts and go on TV interviews. But time to actually work with the federal government? None.
From Allen B. West:
The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, is all the rage in political circles because of her driving criticism of President Donald Trump, and does she ever play up to the billing, appearing on CNN with a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “help us, we are dying.”
…all the while, CNN host Anderson Cooper tries to act natural.

Seems pretty fishy to me. This mayor has time to go on TV and attack the President, but not enough time to actually work with the officials down there helping.
Since the hurricane hit Puerto Rico, there has been word of aid coming from the United States. FEMA and other U.S. agencies are on the ground providing help in any way they can. Numerous reports from Puerto Rican officials attest to this—even of Trumps ongoing involvement.

For democrats to lie about the help they are getting, just to bash the President, is pathetic. It shows they are putting politics ahead of the well-being of their own people.
But that’s nothing new for democrats.
