Boot on Trump Touting Puerto Rico Success: ‘How out of Touch Is Pres. Trump? Far More So than Pres. Bush’
BOOT: "He was seen as being out of touch, because 1,800 people died in hurricane Katrina. Well, nearly 3,000 people died in hurricane Maria and president Trump, even today, is still saying that it was a heck of a job. He’s still saying it was an incredible unsung success story. So how out of touch is president Trump? Far more so than President Bush. And a lot of the factors that Rick raised having to do with local response and various difficulties, all of that was true during hurricane Katrina. But ultimately at at the end of the day, people said, you’ve got to hold the president accountable. And in this present case, sure, there were difficulties. Nobody’s saying it was all FEMA’s fault or all trump’s fault. But you have to hold them accountable for this massive failure to respond to the suffering of our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico."
