‘The View’ Hosts Expected Puerto Rico’s Governor to Bash Trump on Hurricane Response — Then He Drops…

Donald Trump may be The View hosts’ favorite topic of discussion, but they are as far from approving of his politics as any man can be. On Monday, Trump received harsh criticism about not responding accordingly to the Puerto Rico disasters in Hurricane Maria’s aftermath.

What stroke as shocking to the liberal hosts was the fact Trump tweeted about the occurrence, but didn’t bother visiting the area to inspect.

However, on Monday, it was officially confirmed Trump was planning a trip to Puerto Rico first chance he got, without causing further trouble for relief teams on site.

Of course, Joy Behar hissed Trump could have “flown over” to the country, but clearly forgot to say what happened with former President George W. Bush when he flew over Hurricane Katrina.

The View hosts spoke briefly with Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló after debating Trump’s plans for the region.

Sara Haines: Governor, this is Sara. We saw a clip of President Trump saying the White House is doing a “great job.” How do you think they’re doing in terms of response, and do you think it’s enough?

Governor Rosselló: Well, certainly here’s the two components we need to consider. Number one, the president has been in contact with me almost on a daily basis. He is aware of the devastation. I thank him for issuing emergency declarations, issuing disaster declarations verbally as the storm was hitting Puerto Rico. He has also given instructions to FEMA and other federal agencies to help Puerto Rico. That effort is ongoing, and it’s very good. It’s very effective.

Rosselló analyzed the after-effects of Hurricane Maria in depth and spoke of all relief teams on site that effortlessly helped in the past few weeks. He also mentioned the relief help he got from Capitol Hill:

There are some logistical threats that we’re facing. A lot of people in Puerto Rico that used to truck gas or food from one place to the other have not reported. The logistical transportation of the help that’s arriving to Puerto Rico is kind of becoming a bottle neck.

What we need are some human resources, which we requested, and FEMA has established the Corps of Engineers and Special Forces from the D.o.D. that are going to be coming to Puerto Rico so they can help in transportation, medical safety. They can help with fuel lines. They can help with a whole host of things. I know it’s a challenging situation.

Let me put this in this context. It’s the most devastating event in Puerto Rico. Two Category 4 or 5 hurricanes passing in the span of two weeks. The U.S. Citizens that live in Puerto Rico — the proud U.S. Citizens that live in Puerto Rico want to work, want to deal with the emergency.

We also are looking forward to special aid package from Congress. I call upon Congress to act quickly. A lot of messages of solidarity by congressmen and women. I’ve spoken to them. Our ask [sic] is to treat Puerto Rico equally. Attend to the devastation. If we do that we can avoid a humanitarian crisis in the United States and put Puerto Rico back on the path to recovery and in the long run build it stronger than ever.

Anything else you need to ask, liberals?

    This was removed from rulebook for 2017: The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.

    1- 212-450-2000 NFL to protest taking a knee to flag and anthem. Call Buffalo Bills 1-716-648-1800 to protest McCoy acting like he was peeing during the anthem and 1-201-935-8111 for NY Giants for his dog-like peeing to make a political point. Call 1-508-543-8200 for Patriots, Vikings 1-952-828-6500, Lions 1-313-262-2003, Dallas 1-972-556-9900, Falcons 1-770-965-3115, Steelers 1-412-432-7800, Texans 1-832-667-2002 , Browns 1-440-261-5772, Panthers 1-74-358-7000, Steelers 1-412-432-4800, Rams 1-818-338-0011, Saints1-504-733-0255 , Cardinals 1-314-345-9600, Jets 1-973-549-4800, Ravens 1-410-701-4000, Chiefs 1-816-920-9300, Bills 1-877-228-4257, Dolphins 1-305-943-8000, Bengals 1-413-621-3550, Buccaneers 1-800-795-2827, Colts 1-800-805-2658, Titans 1-615-565-4000, Greenbay 1-920-569-7871, Raiders 1-510-864-5000, Jaguars 1-904-633-6000. These are slack actions against our country and finger to our military and veterans Who do you think supports you and is your market anyway? Certainly, not liberals. STAND with America, our military and veterans, our flag, our President, our values – at attention, hand over heart, and hat off. Take a Knee in prayer Call and thank those who showed respect. We will respect teams who stand, put hand over heart and remove helmets. Please share. 30 million and growing, we stand with our President!

    Soooo….they use an article about the devastation Puerto Rico is experiencing then put a petition to fire NFL players who Protest the Nation Anthem. Seriously…morons.

    I’m sorry taking a knee is not devastating – it’s freedom of speech. Period. Every American – black white yellow or brown are given these rights at birth. Let us use them as we choose to see fit and get the fuck over it. That in the end is why it’s called “freedom” now just give us EQUALITY and we should all be good. POTUS is the one who has an issue with everything that is different than him. Stop being blinded by the twitter headlines. This is getting ridiculous, embarrassing as a nation and quite disgusting.

    Take CARE of PUERTO RICO – THIS IS NOT DEVASTATING!!! PUERTO RICO and all it’s inhabitants are in DEVASTATING CONDITIONS!!

    DO WHATS RIGHT or GTFOH
