The self serving, lying, despicable politicians in Puerto Rico spent weeks bashing Trump while hiding aid from their citizens
They should all go to prison quickly for this unforgivable crime against citizens who desperately needed help

Puerto Rico mob finds unused disaster supplies
Politicians in Puerto Rico spent weeks bashing President Trump while hiding aid from their citizens.
An angry crowd in earthquake-rattled Puerto Rico stormed a warehouse Saturday after learning that it contained a stash of emergency supplies that had been sitting untouched since Hurricane Maria slammed the island in 2017.
Word of the squandered supplies spread online Saturday after blogger Lorenzo Delgado posted a video on Facebook of locals breaking into the warehouse, which is shown to be holding cases of bottled water and other emergency supplies.
Locals are seen hauling cases out of the warehouse, and in one image distributing the supplies to a throng of people outside.
This is outrageous, Ponce Mayor Maria Melendez told reporters. Everyone knows what us mayors went through after Hurricane Maria and to try and get help to our cities and how weve worked these weeks to provide basic supplies to people affected by earthquakes.
Those involved owe us an explanation, she said.
The discovery prompted Gov. Wanda Vazquez to fire the islands director of emergency management, Carlos Acevedo, and to order a full investigation into the matter.
There are thousands of people who have made sacrifices to help those in the south, and it is unforgivable that resources were kept in the warehouse, Vazquez said, noting that the supplies had been in the warehouse since Maria.
The governor has asked the Puerto Rican senate to install Jose Reyes, head of the islands national guard, as the new commissioner of emergency management. Secretary of State Elmer Roman told Univision news Saturday that there may also be other warehouses on the island with unused stores of supplies.
He said officials hoped to wrap up the initial probe within 48 hours.
Reaction on twitter
I’ll be totally shocked if someone tells me that Puerto Rican politics is dominated by ‘Rats.
Then they go to Davos and the UN and are treated like heroes and human rights champions. It's sickening.
I, for one, am sick and tired of so much evidence against democrats and liberals and no handcuffs yet.
Ahhh Shaddahp and have some mafungo.
I wouldn’t want to electrocute you...............
Everything FREE in Amerika!................
Hillary was probably involved.
You dont want to piss off Puerto Ricans.
Yeah, those pointy shoes can really hurt....................
Nothing is changed unless they voters vote these politicians out and replace them with conservatives. There isn’t much chance of that.
Those people are a lost cause......................
Reports are over a dozen warehouses.
I think they were slowly handing it to favored mayors or political groups....as ‘gifts’.
Years ago (1980s), I worked with a PR guy in the Air Force. He would spend hours describing the corruption and political intrigue of PR. Virtually everyone...didn’t matter what level you were looking at...was into some form of corruption. They hired sons and daughters of the influential folks...to junior positions in the government, and ended up with managers without any real ethics or knowledge.
The elected pols are blaming the unelected bureaucrats, and fired them............See how that works?...................
I would bet it’s double that or more...................
