In an interview on CNN, Long suggested that Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of Puerto Rico’s capital city, has failed to connect with FEMA command center set up on the island to help with the relief 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 told CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield.“What we need is for the mayor, the good mayor, to make her way to the joint field office and get plugged into what’s going on and be successful,” he continued, adding that, “I think that’s the bottom line on that tweet.”
She says she doesn't have aid and supplies when there are pallet loads behind her.
Yes, it's hard to believe that Puerto Rico is having a hard time with distribution. They have no diesel and the roads are unpassable in many areas.
60% of gas stations are open for business. If gas stations have gas, the port authority certainly does and a good portion of the primary roads are open.
Did you US not have access to some helicopters to help?
Do you know how many helicopters it would take to distribute bottled water to all of Puerto Rico daily?
How about distributing water to some of the island? Like the areas with high population density that had none?
You mean the big cities where nobody is showing up to work?
Awesome--again with the sly implication that they're lazy. Did the people in Houston show up to work when the city was completely flooded? Lazy Americans.
guarantee you that local power employees, local truck drivers, etc. showed up when they could
And how do you know that the Puerto Rican drivers aren't doing the same? Have you seen the devastation there? How do you know who could and couldn't show up?
Like I said, if you can print Novelty T-shirts and reactivate Cell phone Towers, with 60% of gas stations open for business, chances are Truck Drivers can get to work. Like most enterprises, I suspect the vast majority of Port Truckers live close to their jobs.
Seriously--I can screen print a T-shift in my house. Do you think that takes a lot of work?
Puerto Rico, our own little Venezuela! How cute, it's kicking!
You can do your normal character assassination but it doesn't hide the fact that Trump is totally incompetent and doesn't even care to try anymore.
This deserves it's own thread.
No matter what happens, if Puerto Rico remains affiliated with the USA, it must pay income tax going forward, because this relief and reconstruction is very expensive and the ""Commonwealth" is bankrupt.
Is that the law? I thought "laws matter" as you said earlier.
Joey is a known troll And DNC shill, why do you even engage posting responses with him?

DNC shills are funny sometimes.
