President Trump, Puerto Rico, Donald Trump discussed on Mark Levin
Impact on the east coast. We're going to get you another live update from the ground from one of our affiliates WBZ t in Charlotte. They're going to talk with us coming up in about twenty five minutes. We'll have them there. What we're seeing? Now is unfortunately, five confirmed casualties deaths as foreign keeps battering the Carolinas to those people were a mother in an infant shower when a tree fell through their house killing them, so sad to see this. But also so encouraging to see how many Americans are joining together, including the Cajun army who are out there helping save people's lives as we're seeing the same type of flooding that we saw with hurricane Harvey down in Houston last year. A lot of people are coming together in these communities and people were coming in from other states to help people in these communities and get them out of these areas where they need so much help. Now, I say all that to also deal with the reality of what's going on politically today as storms hitting Democrats decided at the leader Nancy Pelosi onstage to blame Donald Trump for post. Hurricane Maria suicides in Puerto Rico. Democratic Representative from New York directly blame Donald Trump for what she said was a spike in suicides across Puerto Rico after. They're terrible response from this administration. Of all the press conferences that Sheila jackson-lee and other Democrats could have had today. They could add a press conference telling people what they need to do and how they could make things better and everything else. I mean, they they could have done that. They could have actually done that. They didn't. They could've given out numbers of places where people send money and get involved in support with operations of feed those that may be you know, got away from the house. They didn't do that. Instead. They decided to have a press conference to start the narrative that anything bad that happens because of hurricane Florence is actually the fault of Donald Trump. And the away to you start. That narrative is a start saying that people died in Puerto Rico because of Donald Trump and the double down on that on the day when this hurricane sitting the already get that in people's minds. So when they do see something bad happens, then immediately, they will say well now, we know who to blame. It's Donald Trump. Here's part of what they said this press conference today this press conference happened today. We know now that this conditions resulted in the almost three thousand loss of our fellow citizens. Whether it was from dialysis machines a medical care not functioning a loss of air conditioning in extreme heat or this site rate spiking due to despair, these death toll can be attributed to Maria and the administration's response today. Sadly, we are watching. Another enormous. Hurricane lands on American soil. And so the fact that we have been affirmed, and reaffirmed that three thousand plus. Died and as I've seen congressman Velazquez cry because people in Puerto Rico or committing suicide. Then I think what we're here today is to give solutions to play for the money and to demand that the administration stand up to its responsibilities. Realizing that the greatest job if they have been the American people are in war. The American people are in disaster. Administration needs to do its job. I mean, it's incredible. That on this Friday when these storms hitting the two narratives that are being pushed today instead of helping the people in the pathway. The storm is one we're going to go after cavenaugh by saying happened in highschool even though apparently the FBI is not interested in Feinstein's cavenaugh letter. The FBI will not be investigating Senator Dianne Feinstein's last second attempt to smear supreme court nominee Brett cabin. Are. We found that out this afternoon. But don't worry push that narrative, and the other is well just know that if anything bad happens with hurricane forums. It's really Donald Trump's fault. Because it's his fault that people died in Puerto Rico, not local elected officials, not handing out the water. The federal government sent down. They're not the clear what we found out was corruption in the federal government down there with even how they were paying and high jacking the rates up and getting kickbacks on those who were supposed to restore power. How much of the goods and services in the money that we sent down there disappeared. Where's the New York Times doing an article on that? They won't do it. Because it doesn't hurt. Donald trump. I want to get to your phone calls one eight hundred or I should say one eight seven seven. Three eight one thirty eight eleven one eight seven seven three eight one thirty eight eleven and see what you think about all of this. Let me go first. To marry Mary you are from Puerto Rico. You hear them try to push this narrative today that these people that commit suicide. It's really Trump's fault. It's the administration's fault year from Puerto Rico, give me your reaction. I I don't even know where to start to be honest with you. Let me start from the beginning. I I was a democrat up until recently I voted for Hillary. Unfortunately, I have a democrat my life. And this situation has really opened my eyes. My family Puerto Rico. My friend works for the power light was sent there to help. Restore electricity photo Rico has. Opening my eyes to what happened in Puerto Rico where my psalm as from what I can tell you is a local government instead of restoring electricity. I in the hospital clinics. They didn't they actually decided to restore hospital to restore electricity and markets and shopping mall because for them. It was better for Puerto Ricans to go spend whatever money they had by clone instead of saving their lives in the hospital, which is the main hospital maybe that hospital didn't have electricity until like maybe seven days later, while the shopping mall, the main shopping mall in some hot 'electricity three days later. So you tell me what does Trump has to do with that? Nothing. Well, and we also found out about kickbacks that were coming back to local officials when they were working to help businesses. Get in business to take advantage of people's desperation because their basic services were deliberately not being turned back on life was not getting back to normal because when you you have to spend more money, right when you are desperate for basic necessities. Well, you know, I know that there were a politics being held at the at the port ship that were standing at the poor waiting to deliver on mayor and the governor of Puerto Rico. You didn't do anything about it? They were just listening excuses other roles where undrivable or Roach twenty possible. But you know, what she is the governor Puerto Rico? More than anybody else. Mayor knows Puerto Rico more than anybody else. And to be honest with you, Trump Trump actually now that I remember Trump went to Puerto Rico when he had the press conference. Remember that he was sitting next to the mayor. I forgot he can't remember some of the local elected officials refused to sit and work with Trump. Well, I remember seeing a conference where the mayor set President Trump in Puerto Rico, Trump back them how many so far he said sixteen they may you said sixteen I'm Ben Trump's a really sixteen. Wow. That's impressive. Not impressive. Because you know, he was happy to seventeen or sixteen people die, but impressive. Just such a major storm had only cost sixteen death this bay or a photo Rigo said to him sixteen I understand that it was too. So I understand it was too. So maybe speak about the total death. You know, what you three thousand people either as the mayor of the governor's full because I know that Trump the possible we all saw I mean, really? A simple question. So we are that stupid. The we don't know that we didn't watch the news. We watched in you. I watch the news. This is why voting for them any. I I I don't even know how to express my feelings. How I am. I am founded I I can't believe that I've been all my life. Lied about this how liars if they are. It's incredible. I don't know what else. Please help me out here. Well, let me say this. I'm glad that you figured it out. And I mean that sincerely because you got to see it first hand and people are not writing these articles about the corruption which Mary is is a big part of the problem. And again, this is why today you have Democrats holding a press conference on the day that this hurricane foreign sitting saying that Donald Trump is responsible for suicides in Puerto Rico. So that that will be the story that will be in people's heads. So if anything bad happens with the storm, they can immediately blame it on. Donald trump. Lisa. You are on the marklevinshow. Ben Ferguson, filling in tonight, highly go ahead. Hi, how are you doing? Well. Thank you, sir. For taking my call. Great to talk to you. Give me your take on this. I take on this is I'm first of all like to say that. Embarrassed by Bill from Pennsylvania because I'm from Pennsylvania. I'm originally a New Yorker as you here, but I've been living here for twenty years. I just hear somebody comes from this this state with such eight inch was mind blowing. I really think that people need to put the blame where it lies and they're accusing Trump of being political. What about the mayor and the governor still wouldn't make a deal with their talk are on strike in order to move to get it to the people that wasn't political. It's certainly watch. What about FEMA coming out and saying that mayo and did not attend team meetings because they had no intention of delivering that stuff to the people how they were making it. So let it go. But where's that story in the media? You never hear it. Also, I remember a radio station where on a government official call the non from Puerto Rico. Tell the truth. That they would move to stuff to get it to the people then they have the nerve to blame this president. It's unbelievable. And I'm disgusted by. It is. Get all of that water. That is sitting down there on that tarmac waiting and the elected officials didn't hand it out, and they still want to blame Donald Trump for that. Donald Trump's job is to get you the resources the local elected officials job to hand out those resources in the most appropriate manner, and they just let the water sit there and rot. That's right now, what about that that made the nasty shock. No that one that was in the middle of all of the people. She was claiming that people are suffering dire dying. She had time to make a custom T shirt blaming Donald Trump. What about her pictures that came out of her hanging out with scoots here rash? That's no coincidence. Right. That I think what set up. I think that good that they set up their own people of Puerto Rico suffer with that storm. So that they can blame the president for it. I think it was a political setup. I think it was a hit job. Well, they certainly wanted to make sure that the president suffered with the bad news. We appreciate the phone. Call one eight seven seven three eight one thirty eight eleven we'll have more on this news of the Democrats again now claiming in a press conference today that Donald Trump's responsible for all suicides in Puerto Rico because of the storm that's his fault. Then Ferguson filling in for the great one. We'll be right back. Mark levin. Folks today, I'm here to talk about congress. No, not about the upcoming elections. Those are very important.
