FEMA backs up POTUS on petulant San Juan mayor, and she’s even worse than Trump described

Fellow mayors have said Cruz has not been attending meetings with federal agencies, to include FEMA and the head of the agency has more or less confirmed as much.

FEMA Administrator Brock Long appeared on CNN Saturday to say  the mayor has not been been working with federal officials responding to the crisis as sufficiently as she could be.

In effect, she is opting not to be part of the “unified command effort.”

“The problem that we have with the mayor unfortunately is that unity of command is ultimately what’s needed to be successful in this response,” Long said.
