Let’s just agree that last year’s presidential candidates are handling this Puerto Rico crisis pretty differently.
Here’s what (2016 loser) Hillary Clinton just tweeted in support of capital city San Juan’s mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz, who has said she’s received very little federal aid since Hurricane Maria devastated the region:
Don’t let anyone make you feel alone. We are with you and Puerto Rico. https://t.co/CxI1eRXJ8L

And then there is the big victor’s latest, which is also talking about Cruz:
Results of recovery efforts will speak much louder than complaints by San Juan Mayor. Doing everything we can to help great people of PR!

No one alert Lin-Manuel Miranda to that one, for the sake of the “Hamilton” guy’s health.
Cruz has blasted the Trump administration response to the unfolding crisis on the island in the wake of Hurricane Maria and pleading for help.”This is a ‘people are dying’ story. This is a ‘life or death’ story,” she told CNN. “Help us, we are dying,”
In a separate press conference, she accused the federal government of “killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy.”
“This is what we got last night: four pallets of water, three pallets of meals and 12 pallets of infant food — which I gave them to the people of Comerio, where people are drinking off a creek,” Cruz continued. “So I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell.”
