OK, she was criticized first after complaining about the administration saying that (after two weeks with 90% loss of power, water and gas) PR was a "good news story." Everyone said that the hurricane destroyed the infrastructure (roads and communication) necessary to get supplies to those who needed it or even find out who needed it.

She was criticized because she said that people were dying. That might have been an exaggeration, but it was a result of frustration because she was concerned. But, exaggeration and pettiness are both standard operating procedure for this administration.

What's certainly petty is for the prez to talk about someone's petting so. He has bigger fish to fry, and a kind of important job. Rather than complaining about the mayor of a city on an island that is 100 miles by 35 miles, he could get us out of these wars. However, it is a nice distraction.

I just love how during the campaign he said that he only he knew the solutions, and that everyone was incompetent. That included the generals. Now, he says they're failures because they haven't come up with a plan for Afghanistan.

Jokes?

I thought the message on the T-shirt was a petty way to make a statement in the middle of something unrelated and more important.

The message was the name Trump called her because of her criticisms. He wasn't there, and he called her a "bad leader." He said that the people of PR needed to do more to "help themselves." He also told them that they'd messed up the US budget.

There are still places in PR that have not received aid: Day 19. So, she can be as petty as she wants, imo. She is an American, after all.

It's still ironic to criticize her for pettiness given that it's the leader of the free world doing it. I.e., who's being "small." He's the pettiest politician I can recall. Shucks, it was apparent during the campaign. Remember "little Marco" and his comments about Fiorina's "face," oh, and how he liked "people who didn't get captured" when referring to McCain.

Anyway, when people (specifically males) give names to women who are trying to achieve, those women often end up owning them. If you see a woman sporting a tee shirt with "I'm a mean, evil, bitch," it's because some man called her one. And, almost always, some men will complain. It's the same with almost all epithets that are appropriated by the people they're thrown at.

Okay, I have family from there, so I am not neutral.

But I think Trump is on target, though he stepped on some toes.

This is the Rum Soaked Fist. If you needed a swallow of rum, would you want it from Cuba, Barbados or Puerto Rico?

If you wanted a cigar, would you like Dominican, Cuban, or Puerto Rican?

It is time Puerto Rican men stood on their own three legs.

Um, you're not talking about the hurricane. Your family didn't help with the recovery? That is what Trump was talking about. If you're saying that Puerto Rican men are lazy, I'm not sure how that relates to rum or cigars. PR is just a tax haven tourist trap for US interests.

Something important like the death toll of Puerto Rico being at 45 while 45 tweets and plays golf? The fact that 89% of the island is without power?
