Whoever is responsible for the Mayor of San Juan’s T-shirt collection, we’d like to take this time to thank you.
Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz , not one to mince her terms or protest T-shirts, was wearing a black T-shirt emblazoned with the words “NASTY” on it to a Univision interview Wednesday morning. Yulin Cruz’s T-shirt appears to have been in response to Trump’s tweets about her on Saturday, as well as his spectacularly tone deaf visit to the island yesterday.
Here’s what Yulin Cruzhad to say of his time there 😛 TAGEND
“When someone is annoyed by someone claiming absence of clean drinking water, deficiency of medicine for the sick, and absence of meat for the hungry, such person or persons has difficulties too harsh to be explained in an interview. What is actually nasty is that anyone would become their back on the Puerto Rican people, ” Yulin Cruz told Univision.

From his golf club on Saturday, Trump tweeted: “The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few weeks ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.
He subsequently added: “Such poor leadership ability by the Mayor of San Juan, and others in Puerto Rico, which they can not get their workers to help. They want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.”

After presenting up in Puerto Rico yesterday to pitch paper towels at desperate people and humiliate everyone watching, the President then hopped back in his air conditioned airliner to Nevada to do whatever the inferno he did there.
Over the weekend, Yulin Cruz was spotted wearing a similarly designed T-shirt reading “We are dying.”
The death toll in Puerto Rico is 34, though it is expected to rise far higher.

The #Deplorable Twitter community that they are consistent with Trump, already reeling from the NFL complains, shamed the mayor for not wearing more appropriate T-shirts on television — not the president, for you are familiar with, failing the Puerto Rican people.
