Determined to not let a crisis go to waste, Democrats are trying to take advantage of the devastation brought upon Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria to recreate the political fallout from Hurricane Katrina that hurt former President George W. Bush.
As egregious as that effort it, it pales in comparison to the efforts by the left-wing site Raw Story to characterize President Donald Trump’s response to the attack.
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz did her part to further the Katrina narrative, saying that people are dying and the Trump administration’s relief effort is “killing us with the inefficiency.”
Never mind that Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló was highly complimentary of the effort by President Trump.
“The president and the administration, every time we’ve asked them to execute, they have executed quickly,” Rosselló said Friday in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.
Taking her rhetoric to another level, Cruz said they were being treated as “animals.”
“The world will see how we are treated — not as second-class citizens, but as animals that can be disposed of,” she said, according to Mashable.
Trump took to Twitter to blast Mayor Cruz, suggesting she “has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”
A claim that takes on added credence considering Democrats tolerate ZERO dissent from the prescribed narrative.
As Trump is wont to do, he didn’t stop there, going on to critique the mayor’s leadership ability.
“Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help,” the president tweeted, before adding that federal workers are “doing a fantastic job.”
A “fantastic job” hindered by the reality, as Trump noted, that Puerto Rico “was totally destroyed.”
Of course, calling a spade a spade didn’t play so well with a media set on destroying this president.
Taking “unhinged” to new levels, Raw Story, looking to drive racial discord, accused Trump of calling the San Juan mayor “nasty” and labeling Puerto Rican workers as lazy.
“Trump attacks ‘nasty’ San Juan mayor and accuses Puerto Rico workers of being lazy in vicious tweet frenzy,” their scandalous headline reads.
The president was up to the task, though, responding in yet another tweet on how the media, notably CNN and NBC, are out to use the disaster to “get Trump.”
