PR Mayor Demands More Help, Yet Somehow Gets Custom T-Shirts for Interviews?

Okay, I cannot be the only person wondering how the heck San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz claims they aren’t getting enough help (food, water, electric restoration, etc) yet she somehow has the funds and means to get custom made t-shirts for her interviews to bash Trump?

I realize that Puerto Rico is recovering from two massive hurricane and the damage is extensive. The United States did not delay in getting them relief supplies, and even waived the Jones Act in order to help even more.

Yet Mayor Cruz can only seem to find time to bash President Trump and do interviews while wearing t-shirts with special slogans on them. Hmmm…. Anyone else see the irony in this?

She even says that Trump’s visit to the U.S. territory was insulting? No. Insulting would have been if he did not make an appearance and did not do what he could to ensure they were getting help.

Had he not shown, she would have been crying about that too.

Fox News reports:

Cruz told Ramos she wore the shirt because “it was one of the expressions that the president used to describe me. I was a ‘nasty mayor,’” People reported.

She said, “When it bothers somebody that you’re asking for drinking water, medicine for the sick and food for the hungry, that person has much deeper problems than what we can discuss in an interview.”

The mayor added, “What really is nasty is showing your back to the Puerto Rican people.”

Cruz criticized the Trump administration’s hurricane response to the island. Last Friday, the mayor appeared on television in a black shirt with white letters that read, “HELP US, WE ARE DYING.” Cruz argued that federal aid had been slow to reach Puerto Rico following Maria, which knocked out power to the entire island.

In her interview with CNN she wore a shirt that said, “HELP US WE ARE DYING.”

How does someone “dying” get a custom t-shirt so quickly?

Trump added Cruz was “very complimentary only a few days ago,” but “has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.”

Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity that Cruz was “very nice at the beginning but she went a little bit on the nasty side and I said I guess she’s running for office, and it turns out I’m right.”
