‘Tell the truth, media!’ San Juan mayor feuding with Trump is under fire for gushing over convicted terrorist killer

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, who has been busy criticizing President Donald Trump, had nothing but love for a terrorist who she said was “fighting the fight.”

In a video released in January, Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz praised former President Obama’s decision to commute the sentence of FALN terrorist leader Oscar Lopez Rivera.

“Hello, San Juan. Freedom for Oscar Lopez Rivera.. soon he will be with us. We have to thank every Puerto Rican man and woman, who for a long time, many of us didn’t know Oscar Lopez Rivera. He was fighting the fight,” Yulin Cruz said, according to a translation from the Daily Caller.

“We’re going to give you more details when we welcome this great Puerto Rican patriot in a cause that unites us and to know that, in spite of our differences, we can do big things in this country,” she added.

She said that a “great celebration is going to be the streets” and she asked citizens to come to the celebration and “celebrate what our hearts scream for.”

“Thanks President Obama,” she said. “Long live Oscar Lopez Rivera.”

But who didn’t live long were four people who died in a bombing at at Fraunces Tavern in New York City in 1975 perpetrated by his group.

Another bombing on New Year’s Eve 1982 injured three New York City police officers.

The FALN was responsible for more than 100 bombings throughout the 1970s and 1980s.

On Friday, Yulin Cruz attacked President Trump’s response to the crisis in Puerto Rico after the island was hit by two hurricanes.

The president fired back, and the media was quick to paint the war of words as President Trump attacking the people of Puerto Rico.

Yulin Cruz was roasted on social media.
