Full-blown TDS: Gov. Cuomo to sue President Trump over hurricane response in Puerto Rico

Hey New Yorkers: This is your tax dollars at work.

Maybe the good mayor should be asking the Puerto Rican bureaucrats what’s up with the report from the New York Times about the containers of hurricane donations found rotting in a Puerto Rico parking lot?

From NY Post: Gov. Cuomo vowed Sunday to sue President Trump over the federal response to hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico — accusing the president of violating the Constitution by abandoning residents of the American commonwealth.

Just days after vowing not to seek the White House in 2020, Cuomo repeatedly bashed Trump, portraying him as a racist bully during a speech at a predominantly Hispanic church in The Bronx.

Cuomo invoked both Trump’s proposed border wall with Mexico and his defense of white nationalists who staged a deadly rally last year in Charlottesville, Va. “Somebody has to stand up to this president. He is a bully,” Cuomo said.

“You know how they handle a bully in The Bronx? He puts a finger your chest, you put one right back.”

Cuomo also said Trump “never tried” to help Puerto Rican victims of last year’s Hurricane Maria, which struck the island on Sept. 20, saying, “They got a different level of care than Texas and Florida and other states.”

We’re going to hold ‘King’ Trump to the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution said equal protection under the law. Puerto Rico did not receive equal protection under the law,” Cuomo said.

“We are going to sue President Trump. We are going to show this bully president that the law is the law.”

Cuomo, who got a standing ovation from the 300-plus congregants at the Heavenly Vision Christian Center, did not provide details of his planned legal action, or take questions afterward.

Trump last week lauded his administration’s handling of Hurricane Maria, a day after Gov. Ricardo “Ricky” Rossello Nevares raised the official storm-related death toll from 64 to 2,975.

“I think we did a fantastic job in Puerto Rico,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday. “We’re still helping Puerto Rico.”

Cuomo — currently seeking a third term in office — was joined at Sunday’s appearance by officials including New York Secretary of State Rosanna Rosado, Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and US Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-Washington Heights).

During his only debate with Sept. 13 Democratic primary challenger and former “Sex and the City” star Cynthia Nixon, Cuomo last week promised to serve a full four years in office if re-elected.

“The only caveat is if God strikes me dead,” he said Wednesday.

Cuomo is such a charlatan, he is really Hurricane Cuomo, doing exactly that, full of wind and leaving shit behind as he “passes through”, just because Puerto Ricans live in New York don’t need him to vomit his rage against the President, leave the Puerto Ricans in PUERTO RICO continue to fight it out themselves, the Puerto Rican New Yorkers families are born in New York, they have helped their families that want to stay there, most of those that came will return once normalcy returns to the island, the lay back place they so much love, future better than… Read more »

This is just grandstanding.
On what standing would Cuomo sue the President?

Just more Cuomo-style blathering and bloviating to get the minority votes. I’m absolutely certain that President Trump is terrified.😬😂

Didn’t some of the political scammers in Puerto Rico get brought up on charges a few months ago? And how in the world did the death toll go from less than 100 to almost 3,000? There’s something rotten in Puerto Rico!

“…..equal protection under the law.”
“…..the law is the law.”

Unless you’re a liberal.

The irony is that building the Wall, that Cuomo is raging against, is the most pro-environmental thing a US President could do. That the Global Warming Carbon Tax zombies, environmentalists, ecologists, conservationists, wildlife & open space enthusiasts and pretend environmental Democrats, are against the Wall, are for George Soros open borders, and the addition of tens of millions of invaders, exposes them as ignorant, disingenuous frauds. According to wildlife biology, environmental, ecology & global warming aka “Climate Science” books, human population growth is the #1 factor for environmental degradation, increased pollution, loss of open spaces/wildlife habitat which means wildlife decline,… Read more »

Have you noticed that in every photo of this spawn of Mafiosa Mario that he is wearing an expression that makes him look like he just escaped from a mental hospital and the men in white coats are coming for him?

I hope God takes Cuomo up on his offer: I don’t know much about this Governor, other than the fact that he is a thug with a loud mouth.

I never thought I’d say it: The lesbian Cynthia Nixon actually MIGHT—I say “might”—do a better job. At least she would carry herself with more dignity than this self-disgraced excommunicated Catholic with all his virtue-signalling.

Cuomo should just shut up. There’s is enough evidence and military records to prove more than enough aid was sent there way ahead of the storm. We have it on video of the lying mayor standing in front of the aid while lying about it. There were rave reviews from several residents saying aid was sent.
Cuomo is an idiot and just confirmed it one more time.
