Get Your Priorities Straight, Dipstick!
IST Factoid: Puerto Rico is a US territory….ergo its residents are US CITIZENS!
The factoid was inserted because there seem to be many that did not know….
Nearly half of all Americans aren’t aware that Puerto Ricans are citizens, according to a new Morning Consult poll.
While 54 percent of Americans know that Puerto Ricans are citizens, 47 percent do not know that, according to the poll, which was first reported by The New York Times. Among Americans with a bachelor’s degree, 72 percent are aware of citizenship for people on the island.
The poll found a connection between knowledge of Puerto Ricans’ citizenship and a willingness to send emergency aid.
According to the report, 8 in 10 Americans who know Puerto Ricans are citizens support sending aid, while among those who do not know, 4 in 10 support sending aid.
It has been a week since Hurricane Maria roared ashore in Puerto Rico and demolished the island in all ways….infrastructure too the biggest hit….60% of the island has NO potable water….there is only spotty electric power and food is running ever so short.
The Island is a wreck and instead to making sure that the country stays laser focused on Puerto Rico Trump spend his Twitter time trying to ramp up some new form of division among us Americans.
After starting the shit storm about the taking of a knee he did finally Tweet about Puerto Rico……
Here are the tweets, in case you missed them:
“Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble…It’s old electrical grid, which was in terrible shape, was devastated. Much of the Island was destroyed, with billions of dollars…owed to Wall Street and the banks which, sadly, must be dealt with. Food, water and medical are top priorities – and doing well. #FEMA”
Really? All the compassion, empathy and concern for the people of Puerto Rico is just heart tugging….(complete sarcasm)……
I even saw a Tweet from a yahoo supporter of Trump addressed to some news anchor…..
“Trump is the president of the US….not Puerto Rico…..Move on”
The stupidity of these people is just amazing…..
Trump needs to MAN up and do more for Puerto Rico……why is the hospital ship. Comfort, NOT in Puerto Rico? (word is leaking out the Comfort will be heading to Puerto Rice. Why did it take so long?)
We have the perfect model for handling this disaster…..The 1948 Berlin Airlift….refresh your memory…..
There should be planes landing at regular intervals and it should have begun mere days after Maria pushed through.
The president keeps Tweeting out that people think the US is doing a good job…..does not look like it….but please give me the names of those deluded individuals.
So far talk is cheap…..but talk does not feed, quench or shelter the Americans on the island of Puerto Rico.
