Trump Just Set The Record For The Most Despicable Thing Ever Witnessed In American Politics

Just when you think things can’t get any worse, Trump manages to find a new rock to slither under to disgrace himself and his administration.

San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz made a direct call to Trump on Friday, tearfully begging for help from him and the rest of the world.

Cruz, the mayor of Puerto Rico’s capital city, spoke on Friday afternoon at the Roberto Clemente Coliseum warning that if relief efforts aren’t quickly stepped up “what we we are going to see is something close to a genocide.”

“We are dying here,” Cruz tearfully spoke at the press conference, adding: “I cannot fathom the thought that the greatest nation in the world cannot figure out the logistics for a small island of 100 miles by 35 miles. So, mayday we are in trouble.”

Appealing directly to Trump, she continued:

I am asking the president of the United States to make sure somebody is in charge that is up to the task of saving lives. They were up the task in Africa when Ebola came over. They were up to the task in Haiti [after the earthquake of 2010]….

I will do what I never thought I was going to do: I am begging. I am begging anyone that can hear us to save us from dying. If anybody out there is listening to us, we are dying. And you are killing us with the inefficiency and bureaucracy….

So I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell because my people’s lives are at stake. And we are but one nation. We may be small, but we are huge in dignity and zealous for life.

So I’m asking members of the press to send a mayday call all over the world. We are dying here. And if we don’t stop and if we don’t get the food and the water into people’s hands, what we we are going to see is something close to a genocide.

True to form, Trump lashed out at Cruz – attacking her leadership during a multi-part Saturday morning Twitter-Tantrum.

“The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump,” Trump began.

Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, who are not able to get their workers to help. They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort. 10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job. The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an amazing job. Puerto Rico was totally destroyed.

And this comes in the wake of earlier remarks by Trump regarding Puerto Rico’s economy and questions regarding who is going to ultimately pay for the relief efforts:

On Friday, Trump tweeted: “The fact is that Puerto Rico has been destroyed by two hurricanes. Big decisions will have to be made as to the cost of its rebuilding!”

Of course, true to form, Trump has also taken to blaming the media for the abhorrent situation in Puerto Rico, tweeting Saturday morning that: “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!”
