Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 16, 2017

President Donald Trump's approval rating for handling the federal government's response to recent hurricanes has dropped 20 points in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, according to a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS. In mid-September, 64% of Americans said they approved of Trump's handling of the US hurricane response. That finding followed his administration's handling of hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which hit the US mainland in late-August and September. Now, as many Puerto Ricans remain without access to clean water or electricity nearly a month after Maria hit, just 44% say they approve.

The decline also includes a steep drop in his approval rating on handling hurricanes among non-whites, from 52% in September to 25% now. Among Hispanics, approval for Trump's handling of hurricane response has dropped from 49% in September to 22% now.

Too bad the hurricane wasn't named Mary rather than Maria.

Ya know, a good, all-American name like Ivanks.

The Dotard and his acolytes don't care. They are busy blaming those job-sealing, brown-skinned speakers of the language of the hired help, who cannot do their own hurricane recovery. Unlike folks in Texas and Florida, these Puwerrto Reekans are asking for help...

What? JeffJ swore FEMA had everything under control! He read it on their website.

And Sniper said all those lazy PRs had to do was walk to the beach to get everything they needed....
