Chuck U. Schumer is relitigating Hurricane Maria, trying to blame that on Trump.

Can't attack him on the economy so why not blame him for something he has no impact on.



Who is to blame?

But to brag about it is beyond the pale. :twisted:

Trump is just defending himself. It's idiotic to blame Puerto Rico's problems on the federal government. The electrical grid was the responsibility of the electric company. Their infrastructure was crap because of literally DECADES of crappy management and no small measure of graft. When FEMA trucks arrived at mountain villages with water and food the local mayors demanded to distribute it themselves (in other words, skim some for the black market and distribute the rest to supporters).

When Florida got slammed the electrical company had HUNDREDS of crews of power technicians and trucks from the Northeast of the country PAID to sit and wait for the storm in parking lots throught the state.

One few days ago Trump was bragging that only 75 died in Puerto Rico. Is that defending? :roll:

It's not the job of the President to prevent trees from falling on people or not having enough of their Lasix or insulin.

Stupid argument.

Yes, nobody wants to be Ray Nagin Part Deux. He is the poster boy for incompetent Mayordom.

FEMA maps are accurate. They are accurate within feet of latitude an longitude because we are talking about measuring elevation which can be accomplished in seconds with astonishing accuracy. There are stupid people everywhere but New Orleans had more than its fair share. If you are in an evacuation zone, get your stuff and get out. Even if you don't flood you may well be stuck in 90 heat and 100% humidity without power for weeks. Park your car on high ground and not under a giant tree. It's not rocket science.


Not only is New Orleans in a flood zone, major portions of it are below sea level.
They would flood on a calm sunny day were it not for dikes, levees and pumps.
Toss in a major storm, with high winds, surges and waves 20 ft and higher, that take out the electricity powering those pumps, and of course you are going to be fucked.
