The petulant mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, has proven to be an embarrassment, a left-wing political hack capitalizing on the misery of others to milk her 15 minutes of fame.
…and while island residents struggle to find a bottle of water, the woman has no problem cranking out custom made T-shirts.
Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz appeared on the Spanish-language network Univision in a black T-shirt with the word “NASTY” emblazoned across the front in big white letters.

After Cruz took to the airwaves last week wearing a T-shirt that read, “Help Us We Are Dying” to criticize the Trump administration’s relief efforts, Trump let loose a barrage of tweets accusing her of “poor leadership” and suggested “Democrats” told her to “be nasty to Trump.”
Ironically, when Geraldo Rivera interviewed Cruz this week, he called BS on claims of people dying.
“I’ve been traveling around, I don’t see people dying,” Rivera informed the mayor.
Even more ironic, Cruz’s “nasty” display comes AFTER she met with President Donald Trump during his visit to the devastated island, when she told him relief efforts were “not about politics.”
But it was indeed ALL about politics.
Cruz appeared on MSNBC earlier wearing a jacket covering the T-shirt, only to take it off when she was before an Hispanic audience.
…it seems the mayor also received some coaching about not appearing so happy on TV amid claims of such calamity.
And while the mainstream media may allow her to pull off shameful political stunts with little note, social media is a different ball of wax.
The Washington Free Beacon’s David Rutz was quick to mock Cruz’s claim that it’s not about politics with a tongue-in-cheek remark:

And T. Becket Adams, a commentary writer for the Washington Examiner, took it further to ask how in the hell is Cruz getting these shirts?
Trump called her “nasty” about four days ago. She already has a custom shirt ready to go? Who’s making and delivering these and how?
