Three Months After Hurricane Maria, 45 Percent Of Puerto Rico Is STILL Without Power

no title

Are you listening, Donald Trump??

As the calendar readies for its turn to 2018 and we all collectively try to wipe away the truly shitty year that 2017 has been on SO many levels, you're well within your right to let off some steam (safely!) tonight and enjoy a celebration with friends, family, and loved ones.

But please, all of you — and especially our ridiculous Commander in Chief — need not forget about Puerto Rico, where people (American citizens!!!) are still suffering horribly from the after-effects of Hurricane Maria.

It's been three full months since the hurricane made landfall on the American island, and now, officials are saying 45 percent of the nearly 1.5 million customers there STILL don't have any power.

How is that possible in this day and age, and in THIS country???

A woman named Susan Tierney, an expert on this type of thing who testified before a U.S. Senate committee on restoration efforts in Puerto Rico recently, put it best in a new Associated Press report out today (below):

Puerto Rico Evacuees Being Forced To Abandon Their Pets!

Filed under: Legal MattersPuppyDogViral: AnimalsViral: News

The people evacuating Puerto Rico don't have enough to worry about without being forced to choose between leaving and keeping their dogs??

According to a new report in The Daily Beast, most airlines leaving San Juan are enforcing a federal ban on pets larger than 20 lbs.

Sylvie Bedrosian, president of Pet Friendly Puerto Rico, estimates at least 2,000 families had to leave their animals behind thanks to the embargo.

The limit is due to the government taking control of the cargo holds of planes going to and from the island in order to deliver more badly needed supplies. But Bedrosian points out that's only on the way TO Puerto Rico, not on the way back:

Donald Trump Threatens To Cut Hurricane Relief In Puerto Rico — Celebs & More Are FUMING On Twitter!

no title

Donald Trump clearly has no soul.

On Thursday morning, POTUS tweeted (gasp!) that Puerto Rico itself is to blame for its current post-hurricane crisis, while suggesting that he "cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

Keep in mind, more than 80% of the island still doesn't have electricity and many don't have cell service or access to clean water. Hurricane Maria hit just three weeks ago.

Trump word-vomited on Twitter:

Twitter Is Raging At Donald Trump Over His Pronunciation Of Puerto Rico!

This POTUS is such a puta. (#PutaPOTUS)

Twitter is on fire right now after what Donald Trump has done to Puerto Rico. And by that we mean what he's done to "Puerto Rico." The words themselves.

What's the problem?

Well, it may not sound awful to say Trump used an especially pronounced Spanish accent to say the name — until you actually hear what we're talking about:

Lin-Manuel Miranda Teams Up With Camila Cabello, Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, & MORE For New Song Benefiting Puerto Rico Relief — LISTEN!

So gorgeous.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is leading the pack of superstars providing aid to the devastated Puerto Rico with a new song, Almost Like Praying!

Related: San Juan Mayor Slams 'Miscommunicator-In-Chief' Donald Trump

Marc Anthony, Ruben Blades, Camila Cabello , Pedro Capo, Dessa, Gloria Estefan , Fat Joe, Luis Fonsi, Juan Luis Guerra, Alex Lacamoire, John Leguizamo , Jennifer Lopez , Rita Moreno, Ednita Nazario, Joell Ortiz, Anthony Ramos, Gina Rodriguez , Gilberto Santa Rosa, PJ Sin Suela, Tommy Torres, and Ana Villafañe also join in on the single to benefit Hurricane Maria relief efforts.

All proceeds from the song will go specifically toward the Hispanic Federation's Hurricane Relief Fund. How wonderful these powerful performers have joined forces — especially since our President's idea of helping is throwing paper towels.

Listen (above)! And SOUND OFF with your thoughts in the comments (below)!

P.S. If you listen closely, you'll notice the lyrics are a rhyming arrangement of all 78 municipalities of Puerto Rico. So touching!

Donald Trump Tells Those Suffering In Puerto Rico: 'I Hate To Tell You, But You've Thrown Our Budget A Little Out Of Whack'

Donald Trump

Another WTF speech from Donald Trump.

POTUS and Melania Trump arrived in Puerto Rico on Tuesday to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Maria — and instead of offering his support, Trump gave himself an A+ for the response to the natural disaster while telling local leaders they have "thrown our budget a little out of whack."

He also went on to tout the 16-person death toll as low compared to the "real catastrophe" of Hurricane Katrina.

We feel ill.
