It never ceases to amaze me how willing Democrat officials are to expose their own incompetence just to take a jab at President Trump.
San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz is one such Democrat official.
Hurricane Maria hit her city, and Mayor Cruz seems caught completely unaware of the fact that she’s the one who is supposed to be running San Juan.
She stood before a sea of supplies and whined about the fact that those supplies aren’t getting trucked out to the people.
”Oh, if only San Juan had someone in charge of the city who could get things going!!! What? I’m the mayor? Huh. Who knew?!”
Democrats demand people vote for them.
But when they get elected, they seem caught by surprise when citizens expect them to actually do something.
And what’s the point of being a mayor if you aren’t going to lift a finger to help the citizens of your city at a time like this?
Instead, Mayor Cruz seems to think her job is to appear live on cable news shows to complain about government inefficiency as is she isn’t in charge of the local government.
When an unspeakable natural disaster like Hurricane Maria hits, it should be all hands on deck – including the wringing hands of the Mayor of San Juan.
Sure, complaining about the so-called incompetence of the federal government when clearly her local government isn’t doing anything may play well on MSNBC.
But most thinking people are going to wonder why the hell she’s spending all her time giving Trump-bashing interviews instead of rolling up her sleeves and getting to work.
President Trump is right. Mayor Cruz is not showing leadership in the least.
Her focus isn’t on the suffering of her citizens and the solutions to the problems they’re facing. Instead her focus is on advancing the media narrative that President Trump dropped the ball in Puerto Rico.
So concerned is she for the people of San Juan, she is spending all her time bashing Trump in front of eager news cameras.
Now, I realize that Democrats use people as pawns in their political games.
But now is not the time to exploit the suffering of those in San Juan or Puerto Rico at large.
Now is the time to get the hell away from the cameras and get to work.
The Democrats’ opportunistic showboating and anti-Trump vitriol is bad enough on a normal day.
But to do it in the midst of a natural disaster is unbelievably shitty.
Mayor Cruz has her priorities. And helping the city of San Juan clearly isn’t one of them.
Instead, she’s spending her time helping the news media advance the fiction that the Trump Administration doesn’t care about Puerto Rico.
And the irony of course is that in so doing, Mayor Cruz is actually exposing just how little she cares.
