Everyone in America knows that the lady hosts at The View are not big fans of President Trump.
On their show Monday evening, the women on The View decided to sped most of their air time criticizing the way President Trump responded to the damages and destruction created by Hurricane Maria.
They were particularly upset with the fact he had tweeted about the mess in Puerto Rico but had not taken time to visit them himself.
I guess they bit their tongues a bit too fast, because during their show news broke out that the President had just made an announcement. He told the nation that as soon as his presence would not create a hindrance to the local relief efforts in Puerto Rico, he will be heading down there to be with the people.
Joy Bear had to put her two-sense in, and mentioned to the crowd that Trump could have at least “flown over” to Puerto Rico.
She must have not been paying much attention to the news about the public relations disaster that dogged President George W. Bush when he decided to fly over Katrina.
These cold-blooded women on ‘The View’ just can’t get enough…

The View on Tuesday spoke via remote with Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló — after the ladies showed a video clip of President Trump bragging about how great the response has been so far:
Sara Haines: Governor, this is Sara. We saw a clip of President Trump saying the White House is doing a “great job.” How do you think they’re doing in terms of response, and do you think it’s enough?
Governor Rosselló: Well, certainly here’s the two components we need to consider. Number one, the president has been in contact with me almost on a daily basis. He is aware of the devastation. I thank him for issuing emergency declarations, issuing disaster declarations verbally as the storm was hitting Puerto Rico. He has also given instructions to FEMA and other federal agencies to help Puerto Rico. That effort is ongoing, and it’s very good. It’s very effective.
Rosselló continued to explain the ongoing problems that Puerto Rico is facing — mainly the manpower and ability to get relief from the Capitol into the outlying areas:
There are some logistical threats that we’re facing. A lot of people in Puerto Rico that used to truck gas or food from one place to the other have not reported. The logistical transportation of the help that’s arriving to Puerto Rico is kind of becoming a bottle neck.
What we need are some human resources, which we requested, and FEMA has established the Corps of Engineers and Special Forces from the D.o.D. that are going to be coming to Puerto Rico so they can help in transportation, medical safety. They can help with fuel lines. They can help with a whole host of things. I know it’s a challenging situation.
Let me put this in this context. It’s the most devastating event in Puerto Rico. Two Category 4 or 5 hurricanes passing in the span of two weeks. The U.S. Citizens that live in Puerto Rico — the proud U.S. Citizens that live in Puerto Rico want to work, want to deal with the emergency.
We also are looking forward to special aid package from Congress. I call upon Congress to act quickly. A lot of messages of solidarity by congressmen and women. I’ve spoken to them. Our ask [sic] is to treat Puerto Rico equally. Attend to the devastation. If we do that we can avoid a humanitarian crisis in the United States and put Puerto Rico back on the path to recovery and in the long run build it stronger than ever.
That settles that.
