  1. These days, if you are in the storm of a hurricane, be it real or mediatic, and if you are a Liberal, especially a never trumper, you get honorary degrees, get listed in Time as an influential person, or get invited to be a parade marshal. Yet, the hurricane debris is still smearing the mayor’s capital city. The federal assistance we got in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria was more than acceptable and beyond parallel. Kudos for every federal worker who deployed to the island to help, and shame on the central government that was not responsive to secure electrical power linemen from the Mainland, awarded a nefarious no-bid $300 MILLION contract to Whitefish, and that is currently claiming we are “ready” for the 2018 hurricane season when 25,000 people are still without power since hurricane Irma (August 2017) and can’t keep the house in order. The mayor of San Juan is not exception. She’s placing herself on the media’s eye to run for governor in 2020. Ask the photographers who are in her payroll that shadow her everywhere she goes.
