Geraldo Rivera calls BS on San Juan mayor’s false Trump blame: ‘I’m here. Who is dying?’

You called down the thunder. Well, now you’ve got it!

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, may have bitten off more than she can chew in politicizing the Trump administration’s relief efforts following Hurricane Maria now that Geraldo Rivera is on the case.

When not busy cranking out nifty custom T-shirts and hats by candlelight, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz has made a name for herself complaining about the people who have come to her island to help with recovery efforts.

And while Cruz has been throwing President Donald Trump under the bus at every opportunity, other mayors are confused about her reasoning.

Rivera too saw things differently.

“On the ground I see the suffering-but feel deeply that attacking @realDonaldTrump for the ravages of nature &neglect is politicizing tragedy,” he tweeted.

The Fox News correspondent-at-large did find a “bankrupt criminally incompetent” culprit closer to home:

Rivera caught up with Mayor Cruz, sans her custom-made T-shirt, and said she was “being partisan in her sharp unfair attacks,” although he did not agree with President Trump’s most recent assessment of her criticism.

“I’ve been traveling around, I don’t see people dying,” Rivera informed the mayor.

As for the president’s assessment, he pushed back hard early Sunday while detailing some of the progress being made in Puerto Rico:

In light of all the animosity between Trump and the mayor, “Geraldo the Peacemaker” offered to “help broker peace” between the two parties in a tweet.

“We are all on the same team to help get storm-stricken PR on its feet,” he added in the post.
