Roseanne Got 20x More Coverage Than Bombshell Report On Hurricane Deaths
1 June 2018
On Tuesday, Harvard researchers published a study estimating that approximately 5,000 deaths can be linked to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. The same day, ABC canceled Roseanne Barr’s eponymous show Roseanne after Barr sent a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, an adviser to former President Barack Obama.

And we still have NOT restored full power to PR. Don’t believe the hype of AEE. I’ve been counting up since just before 100 days.

Trump is still trying to figure out that PR is America.
He has said he wants to privatise it, and rename it Puerto Trump.
He can’t have Puerto Rico!
Very probably, Trump won’t have his ‘Puerto Trump’.
However, there are dangerous privatisations at the moment in Puerto Rico:
Oh, yes! I’m well aware of what is going on. Unfortunately, Puerto Rico has a long history of governmental corruption.
