As a result of his tweeting and the NFL issue - many have taken that since he spends a few minutes of his day doing so, that he's ignoring Puerto Rico and their needs after a devastating storm.

Puerto Rico's Governor Dismantles Media Attacks on Trump's Response to Hurricanes Irma and Maria

It was clear this weekend that the talking points had gone out to the media: President Trump's response to both Hurricane Irma earlier this month and Hurricane Maria last week was as disastrous as Bush's response to Hurricane Katrina.

All of these media figures became woke on the topic in just the last 24 hours.

(tons of of retarded twitter crap at site...)

But is it true?

The pushback against the media narrative has come from a surprising source: Puerto Rica Governor Ricardo Rosselló, who served as a Hillary Clinton delegate to the 2008 Democratic National Convention and as an Obama delegate in 2012.

In an interview with PBS Newshour this evening, Rosselló thanked the Trump administration for their prompt response:

JOHN YANG: Governor, are you getting all the aid you need or getting it fast enough from the states?

GOV. RICARDO ROSSELLO: First of all, we are very grateful for the administration. They have responded quickly.

The president has been very attentive to the situation, personally calling me several times. FEMA and the FEMA director have been here in Puerto Rico twice. As a matter of fact, they were here with us today, making sure that all the resources in FEMA were working in conjunction with the central government.

We have been working together. We have been getting results. The magnitude of this catastrophe is enormous. This is going to take a lot of help, a lot of collaboration. So, my call is to congressmen and congresswomen to take action quickly and conclusively with an aid package for Puerto Rico.

We are in the midst of potentially having a humanitarian crisis here in Puerto Rico which would translate to a humanitarian crisis in the United States. So, I call upon Congress to take action immediately. You know, Puerto Ricans are proud U.S. citizens.

It must hurt REALLY bad to be a Dumbo-crat :laugh:. All their accusations are being laughed at lately. I've waited since the 80s to see this.

You don't bite the hand that feeds you.Nor do you need to lie for nothing more than some partisan faux outrage.

Are you implying that he's lying?

Why is it so hard to believe that while he tweeted a bunch - he still paid full attention and did what was necessary to help PR?

It's just another reason to toss blame in his direction, while the facts speak otherwise.

So he's getting fed. Right.

Like you're being fed humble pie over your claims PR is somehow being neglected?
