The Diva has been observing emergency management matters for almost 40 years, but does not recall a time when so many ad hominem attacks on the part of the high level political officials involved in a disaster were noted publicly. See this article:
Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Brock Long on Sunday said San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz’s remarks critical of the U.S. relief effort on Puerto Rico are just “political noise.”
“We filtered out the mayor a long time ago. We don’t have time for the political noise,” Long said on ABC News’ “This Week.” “The bottom line is, we are making progress every day in conjunction with the governor.”
Cruz on Tuesday said President Donald Trump’s remarks on a visit to the island were “insulting.”
“He really has a communication issue,” she said. “You know he’s sort of like the miscommunicator-in-chief, really.”
She thinks it is unlikely that that the name calling by public officials will facilitate the monumental problems with response and in recovery in Puerto Rico. Be sure to see the readers’ comments.
