President Trump was correct: Emergency supplies in Puerto Rico went unused

After Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, progressives and the media blamed President Trump for the lack of relief supplies.

When President Trump called out Puerto Rico’s ‘incompetent or corrupt’ politicians, the media lost their minds. He claimed Puerto Rico had mismanaged disaster aid funds. No one in the media dared travel to Puerto Rico to do an investigation. Such brave fire fighters…

President Trump was correct. A headline yesterday from USA Today: “Warehouse of emergency supplies went unused in Puerto Rico after Maria. Now 2 officials are fired.”

The USA Today story goes on to describe how three officials have been fired as a result of their incompetence. Read the whole story here.

More proof that you can NEVER trust our media and their #fakenews.

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.

Mets pitcher, a "Texan Republican," links hurricanes to US pulling out of Paris Climate Accord

noah snydergaard

Private Mets’ Delta jet (l) that pitcher Syndergaard (r) flies each season

I wonder how much carbon emissions this pitcher and his team emit while flying via their private Delta jet each season to play baseball? Hypocrite.
From Fox News: New York Mets star pitcher Noah Syndergaard tossed a curveball to Twitter fans late Monday, suggesting the number of deadly hurricanes that have ravaged the United States in recent weeks is “karma” for the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord.
Syndergaard, 25, a starting pitcher for the Mets who has been on the disabled list since May, linked the spate of recent hurricanes – Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria – to President Trump’s June pullout from the Paris deal. On Saturday, a European Union official said the U.S. may be open to reviewing the terms of the accord, but National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster quickly shot down the “false report.”
“U.S. pulls out of Paris Climate Accord. Then hit by 4 hurricanes in 6 weeks. Global Warming Karma?” Syndergaard wrote, adding the hashtags: “I’m a Texan Republican” and “wake up.”
Syndergaard, nicknamed ‘Thor’ for his likeness to the fictional character due to flowing, blonde locks and a chiseled frame, tweeted later: “…..and I know Karma.”
To that post, he added the hashtag “take the MRI.” That tweet was an apparent dig at himself for refusing an MRI before he was scheduled to pitch on May 1. Syndergaard ended up injuring himself during the game, after which he was placed on the disabled list. He has yet to pitch in another major league game this season.
Social media users quickly responded to the pitcher’s climate change claim.
“Stick to baseball because weather obviously isn’t your strong point,” Rdsknsfan3 wrote.
“You just lost a lifetime Mets fan. Stick to pitching, if you can stay healthy for even one freaking season. Stupidity Karma?” MaximilianoNJ wrote.
Added LHVPundit: “Stick to what you know (baseball) and leave the science to scientists. Mets fans don’t care about where you stand on political issues.
