Since Donald Trump made personal attacks against Morning Joe cohosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski back in June, tensions between the three have been high. So, after Trump's response (or lack thereof) to Puerto Rico's escalating humanitarian crisis after Hurricane Maria, Brzezinksi couldn't hold her tongue. She compared Trump's inaction and verbal criticisms of Puerto Rico to his response to Charlottesville, when he blamed both sides instead of denouncing Neo-Nazis right off the bat.
Brzezinksi joins a slew of other public figures who have called out Trump on his response to the relief effort, including George Takei, who was "disgusted," and Lin-Manuel Miranda, who told Trump he's "going straight to hell" after his Twitter criticism of San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz's "poor leadership."
Are u accusing FEMA, Navy & Army to be racists? All other PR officials including gov who state that their getting everything they need?— Toni (@CarpeDiemToni) September 30, 2017
Please, when throwing racism is all you have Mika! Get out of your fancy tower.— GiGiPollard (@gi_pollard) September 30, 2017
She won't, but it wouldn't be inappropriate for the Mayor of San Juan to spit in his face on Tuesday when he gets there. I do hope he gets the reception he deserves after what he has done this morning. Unforgivable.— Matthew Greene (@Matt_Greene723) September 30, 2017
Trump needs no help from anyone to be embarrassed. He is a walking talking embarrassment to all rational Americans.— Andrew Pants (@MrAndrewPants) September 30, 2017
Now we wait and see if President Trump cares more about the millions of lives at stake, or if he continues to simply attack anybody who criticizes him.
