President Trump has worked tirelessly to help those affected by the devastation in Puerto Rico. All the while, the mainstream liberal media is taking another disturbing angle to this story.
Mika Brzezinski from CNN started pushing the narrative that what we see in Puerto Rico is equivalent to what they alleged happened during Hurricane Katrina under former President Bush, according to the Daily Wire. Now, almost all liberal publications are running wild with this narrative. This should not come as a surprise, as the Left was running out of things of which to accuse the president.
The media is conveniently ignoring obvious truths just for the sake of coming up with a story. It is despicable in every way, shape, and form namely because they are using the horror that these people are going through to paint the president poorly.
Instead of thanking President Trump for opening up all opportunities for helping the people of Puerto Rico, they are condemning him. Their mentality can be summed up in the hashtag of Brzezinski’s tweet, “#hesnotfit.”
After news of Hurricane Maria broke, the president set up tons of first responders, food, and water for the people in Puerto Rico. He has been on-task and communicating with everyone involved, including the governor of Puerto Rico who had nothing but good things to say about the president.
According to Town Hall, the governor, Ricardo Rossello said, “I have to say that the administration has responded to our petitions. FEMA, Brock Long, has been on the phone virtually all the time with me, checking out how things are going,”
He went on to explain that all of the groups, including FEMA, are working together to get everything back to where it should be. They have managed to bring phone lines back up in some areas, grocery stores are reopening, and things are, generally speaking, looking better.
While back here on the mainland, outlets like CNN are saying things such as, “Trump’s Katrina? No, it’s much worse.” It is surprising that they truly believe they can make statements like these which are so far from the truth The liberal media seems to think that the president is simply refusing to act.
All the while, the evidence of his accomplishments in ravaged Puerto Rico is right in front of their face. He is being praised by people who are actually in Puerto Rico, while the liberals are going back to their comfy homes after they get done bashing Trump.
Left-leaning politicians in Puerto Rico are using the hurricane relief crisis as a political tool to bash President Trump. Should opportunistic politicians who use a crisis to further their agendas be impeached?
There is a tinge of hypocrisy here, to say the least. President Trump has fought back against these statements. In a tweet, he said, “Fake News CNN and NBC are going out of their way to disparage our great First Responders as a way to “get Trump.” Not fair to FR or effort!”
Before the mainstream media outlets bash Trump, the responders, and the people who are suffering in Puerto Rico, it might be wise for them to consider what they are doing for the people there who are going through this tragedy as we speak.
