Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)
Today the God-King attacked San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz and the media for daring to criticize the response to Hurricane Maria in a tweet-storm that was laced with racism. FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver says the God-King just can’t accept criticism from women or people of color (Yulín Cruz is both) and resents that the media refuse to parrot his “everything’s going fine” attitude. Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued new flood warnings for much of the island. Will the God-King ever get around to asking Congress for emergency funding for Puerto Rico?
