Lin Manuel Miranda and Marc Anthony Attack Trump on Puerto Rico Without Facts
Hamilton, An American Musical creator Lin-Manuel Miranda and singer Marc Anthony are attacking President Donald Trump over a perceived lack of aid heading to Puerto Rico. Unfortunately for them, their attack is not based on reality.
WIBC host Tony Katz points out that the Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló, has been appreciative of how quickly the Administration has responded. However, getting help to the nation is not easy; a flooded, island nation with no power and limited communications.
Cheap shots from Miranda and Anthony help no one. And, in a play on Miranda's own words, he threw away his shot. Yes, the government is providing aid. And, yes, it will take the citizens of the US to do even more. And they should.
