Love him or hate him, at least Trump is not one of those crybabies who smiles ever-so-sweetly to your face before sniping from the shadows.
The left-leaning mayor of San Juan has been quite happy to inject her hyper-partisan politics into an already tense situation in Puerto Rico.
Somehow, in the midst of the tragedy, she was able to find the time to get screen printed hats and T-shirts made for her TV appearances.
Standing in front of row upon row of supplies that had been delivered to Puerto Rico, she wore an S.O.S. hat and a ‘help us we’re dying’ shirt.
Here is what she said when Geraldo Rivera challenged her on the ‘dying’ claim:
The mayor claimed, “There are people at all municipalities literally starving, dehydrating. We have had our hospital try to go back to speed but then the electricity goes off and we have to do all the bacteria testing, which takes three to four days.”
Rivera said, “But are people dying? I’ve been traveling around, I don’t see people dying. I spoke to the doctors, they say they saw 53 patients and they had a person who was septic, but nobody dying.”
Cruz responded, “Dying is a continuum. If you don’t get fed for seven, eight days and you’re a child, you are dying. If you have 11 people like we took out of a nursing home, severely dehydrated, you are dying.”
The Fox News reporter followed up after the video interview, stating, “More houses destroyed, not people killed–the Mayor’s wrong about that.” —DailyCaller
The mayor made an appearance on the View, and was even the vehicle of SNL’s latest anti-Trump hit piece.
So, what happened when Trump came to the Island?
He praised the governor, who he ‘didn’t know’ previously, and who is from a different party.
How did he praise him? By saying he ‘didn’t play politics’.
And who was sitting right there, two seats to his left when he said that? You guessed it.
Mayor Cruz. But THIS time she was not wearing a screen shirt.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa’s A Patriotic Badass.
