Trump Calls His Puerto Rico Response An Unsung Success: As Hurricane Florence bears down on the Carolinas, President Trump is describing his administration’s response to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico as “an incredible unsung success,” despite the fact that the death toll has jumped from 64 to 2,975 and the area is still struggling to fully restore its electricity.
A Trump spokesperson said people who criticize the Administration’s response to Hurricane Maria should remember that the President personally visited the area after the storm and threw paper towels into the crowd - which we all know can make a world of difference to struggling Hurricane victims.
And of course those critics never bother to mention those towels were a very high-end paper towel - rated “bigly absorbent.” I mean, there’s no telling what the death toll could have risen to had our quick-thinking President not tossed those towels out into the crowd. And who can forget that President Trump even offered to meet with the “President of Puerto Rico,” but sadly, the Puerto Rican president apparently wasn’t available at that time.
The point is that anyone who questions the President’s ability to handle storms - should just take another look at the expert manner in which he and Michael Cohen handled the Stormy Daniels situation. Why the President and his attorney apparently worked tirelessly to prevent that potentially terrible situation from escalating. And to think that there are those cynics out there who claim that about the only way Puerto Rico can be considered would be if you happen to be a hurricane - sad!
