San Juan Mayor Sports ‘Help Us We Are Dying’ T-Shirt for Anti-Trump CNN Interview

Democrats have homed in on hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico as this week’s front lines in their endless war on President Donald Trump.

The U.S. territory was busted back to the Stone Age by Hurricane Maria and Democrat surrogates in the media have already expressed that they want to turn it into “Trump’s Katrina” in their relentless quest to damage a new president who has yet to be in office one year.

The newest anti-Trump figure that has emerged is San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz who during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, wore a black t-shirt with the words “HELP US WE ARE DYING” emblazoned across the front.

It is unknown where she got the shirt but considering the Democrats’ dirty games it seems to have the fingerprints of their operatives all over it, that is if she didn’t get it from CNN itself.

One would think that a woman who is busy trying to save lives and respond to a natural disaster would have more important things to do than to spend time making an anti-Trump political statement in a shirt that is all but certain to become a hit with the so-called resistance and will feed weeks of propaganda against the president.

It’s another great and emotional slogan that just by sheer coincidence happened to be rolled out during her appearance with the ridiculously anti-Trump cable network and brings to mind another incendiary mantra of three years ago “HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT” that cemented the lie of Michael ‘Gentle Giant’ Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.  That was also a situation that the Democrats exploited for political gain although it never quite materialized at the polls and they were wiped out in the 2014 midterms.

Via The Hill “San Juan mayor wears ‘help us, we are dying’ shirt for TV interview”:

Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, wore a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “help us, we are dying” during an appearance on CNN on Friday night.

Photos posted to Twitter show Cruz speaking with CNN’s Anderson Cooper while wearing the shirt.

Cruz has been critical of President Trump and his administration’s response to the crisis in Puerto Rico, which was devastated by Hurricane Maria last week.

Earlier Friday, she blasted acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke for calling the government’s response to the crisis a “good news story.”

“Maybe from where she’s standing, it’s a good news story,” Cruz said. “When you’re drinking from a creek, it’s not a good news story. When you don’t have food for a baby, it’s not a good news story.”

“Damnit, this is not a good news story,” she continued. “This is a people-are-dying story.”

Duke later clarified her comments, telling reporters Friday that “it’s nice to see the communities together trying to recover and support each other.”

Cruz also held an emotional press conference Friday ripping the Trump administration’s efforts to assist the island.

“I will do what I never thought I was going to do. I am begging, begging anyone who 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,” she said.

Granted that things do suck in Puerto Rico but it’s bullshit to blame the Trump administration for not responding similarly as when Hurricane Irma targeted Florida earlier this month and was able to place assets into place for a rapid response.

The biggest of many differences – ROADS!

The last time that I looked, Puerto Rico was an island. There is also an antiquated power grid that wasn’t properly maintained, poor infrastructure and slums as well as an astronomical poverty rate that made it particularly susceptible to being destroyed by a monster storm.

And it is an island that has a history of its politicians feathering their own nests while neglecting citizens – to the point of having to declare bankruptcy – who deserved better than they received.  You can probably count San Juan’s leftist mayor among those charlatans now that she is sporting t-shirts with opposition messages on them and cozying up with CNN’s whores.

Yet once again, according to the media, It’s ALL Trump’s fault.

Democrats are drooling over the boost that thousands of resentful Puerto Rican refugees will give them if they flee to Florida as is expected and Mayor Cruz – despite her concern for her people – is allowing herself to be used as a pawn in this most cynical of games whether or not she is a willful participant.

Trump clearly sees what is going on and has launched a Twitter volley that will immediately be seized on by a well-oiled outrage machine that is already in overdrive after his comments on last week’s NFL protests provided a window of opportunity to sow divisiveness to delegitimize his election.

Cue the condemnation and the scalping party is being led by Pocahontas who has been uncharacteristically quiet as of late:

Warren’s war cry will be followed by the rest of her party, late-night talk show hosts who get their material from Democrat politicians, Hollywood celebs, Never Trump Republicans and most of all, the media.

Roger Goodell can now exhale.
