@#1

You seem to be quite willing to apply your opinions to those who you do not even know.

Have you talked with a professional about that?

:)

@#5 ... Democrats literally withheld supplies to make Trump look bad ...

My first question, does the Democratic Party have that level of reach into Puerto Rico?

Here you go ... you think shes a Republican .... idiots

"The situation is dire," Glorimar Andjar Matos, secretary of Puerto Rico's families department, told the Post. "Given Puerto Rico's unfair treatment in federal programs, we are pushing to receive and utilize the funds as soon as possible."

The delay comes after Republican lawmakers and the Trump administration worked to block any new emergency funding for Puerto Rico. Trump reportedly told officials earlier this year that he "doesn't want another single dollar" going to Puerto Rico despite the growing hunger crisis on the island.

Imagine having the unmitigated gall to claim its a "dire situation" while you know you are stashing goods in warehouses across PR ....

Then the uneducated DRLeftist claiming she isn't a democrat leaning socialist ...

Oh come on, you sun-baked lizard.

Corrupt Democrats have been exposed as frauds and manufacturers of fake news, now criminally withholding vital relief supplies just so they can cry "Orange Man bad".

You're pathetic, ex-stripper.

Not that I'm a fan of the the Dems or the DNC, but I fail to see how this is connected to them or excuses Trump's disdain and incompetence.

When you make a wild charge like that you should have the decency to back it up with some sort of documentation or not post it at all.

So wait, you and your party want to be able to make any claims you want and even call them facts without any evidence like you do all the time, but you want other people to act right. One could do a search for just one week on this site's comments and show a large number of claims made about Trump that have no evidence or backing. How did this country go so wrong?

Umm... that didn't prove your point. That literally proved the opposite.

Want to try another lie?

I'm not sure who needs to hear this (but I have a hunch).
THE GOVERNOR OF PUERTO RICO IS NOT A DEMOCRAT.

She is part of the NPP; which is actually the CONSERVATIVE Party in Puerto Rico. The more liberal party is the PDP and the most liberal is the PRIP.

There were a couple dozen protesters according to the article...

That's not much to see.

Where does that most conservative party map to in our (US) spectrum?

That is not exactly correct, the New Progressive Party has both Democrat and Republican members in it but most members identify as Democrats. Gov. Vasquez caucused with the Democrats until just after she was sworn in as Governor when the PR Supreme court ruled that Pedro Pierluisi was sworn in on unconstitutional grounds and after becoming Governor stated that she was now going to caucus with the Republicans so that she could "better work with President Trump on issues relating to the island."

The latest protests were estimated at close to 1,000 people in front of the Governor's mansion.

#19

The parties are best categorized by where they stand on statehood/independence, the NPP favors Statehood, the PDP is stuck between the territorial model and independence and the PRIP wants full independence.
