Survival Journalism

Op-Ed

In an interview with CBS News last Sunday, FEMA deputy federal coordinating officer Justo "Tito" Hernandez deflected questions about wasted water bottles for Puerto Ricans in need after Hurricane Maria last year.

Tito's response is much like Trump officials who would rather focus on positives rather than the problem. Watch him during this interview where he refers to their efforts on the island as historic, the kind of bluster that everyone expects from Trump himself.

Buy this satirical shirt on Amazon!!!

In the end, he only refers to a question he didn't answer as one that he already answered. When pushed, he only provides a vague response.

Maybe the worst thing about this is the fact that he himself is a Puerto Rican and therefore a complete backstabber to his own people. Comes to show just how far Trump's gangsters will go to not be held accountable.
