Trump Announces Puerto Rico Is On Its Own, And His Least Favorite Mayor Responds

Thursday morning, Donald Trump dropped another bombshell on the already-devastated island of Puerto Rico: He’s done helping.

In a series of tweets, Trump quoted right-wing broadcaster Sharyl Attkisson, who he loves because she too claims she was hacked by Obama:

I mean, not to be too nitpicky about this or anything, but wasn’t Trump, um… A little late getting there in the first place? Didn’t we just hear about FEMA not even bringing food and water to completely accessible areas of the island? It’s not like the Trump administration did a whole lot for tiny Puerto Rico. After he told them they should be thankful that so few people died, the death toll doubled. FEMA actually began removing bad news about how things were going in Puerto Rico from their website.

The Mayor of San Juan, the now-famous Carmen Yulín Cruz, shot back once again at the president of both White America and puertorriqueño America:

Mayor Cruz hits the nail on the head. Donald Trump isn’t ignorant of the plight of those still without power or drinking water on the storm-torn island. It’s just that he doesn’t care.
