San Juan mayor lets slip SHOCK admission on live TV

Carmen Yulin Cruz’s 15 minutes of fame is not ending well, it seems.

The San Juan mayor swiftly became a bit of a progressive hero yesterday, thanks to her passionate rant against the Puerto Rico relief efforts that gave the MSM its sought-after opportunity to Katrina-ize the tragedy following Hurricane Maria.

However, despite giving the media its “George Bush does not care for black people” moment, Mayor Cruz is finding that her story is making her stay in the spotlight an uncomfortable one.

Witness, as an example, the following exchange with ABC News Clintonista…err, journalist George Stephanopoulos, who asked her if she has met with the FEMA joint office.

The mayor is forced to admit, after a stream of excuses, that she did not meet with FEMA personally. Only people in her administration had done so.

As the Daily Wire asks, “So, ‘people from [her] administration’ have been to the federal field office, but she hasn’t? Wasn’t she, uh, elected by the people of San Juan to do just that?! Isn’t she, as mayor, in charge?!”

This admission only compounds Mayor Cruz’s increasing credibility problem.

Per the Washington Examiner:

The mayor of a Puerto Rican city that sits next to San Juan praised the administration’s help Saturday night, and chided the “politics” of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz, who has been criticizing President Trump.

In an interview with Secrets, Guaynabo Mayor Angel Perez Otero said that in several meetings with FEMA and U.S. military officials about the recovery effort, Yulin Cruz has been absent. “I’ve seen other mayors participating. She’s not,” said Perez Otero.

The Guaynabo mayor adds:

Perez Otero said that he has been in constant contact with military, FEMA and White House officials and has been promised that “they won’t leave until Puerto Rico is good.” He added that a top Trump aide quoted the president saying that the aid so far “is not enough. There is going to be more.”

That’s a very different story than the one given by the San Juan mayor. But as we reported today on the interesting custom T-shirt she was wearing on camera for CNN (funny how T-shirt printing companies on the island seem to have been spared power outages or flooding), Cruz is very interested in pushing her own narrative.
