Rep Power: 14 Burls is on a distinguished road
A New High In Low

Here we have the latest Drumph Tweets:

3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000...
.....This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!


Really Donnie Boy, three thousand people died as a result of your incompetence and self absorption.
And this is what you have to say?
Its not all about you, Donnie.
It's not all about you.

Death tolls always rise as a result of a disaster, not necessarily during. Disease and injuries claim lives days to weeks after. He just loves to lie.

Many studies addressed a real concern that the Puerto Rican government lacked the competence to do an accurate death count, but much of the media hype around the results was clearly motivated by the attempt to damage the Trump administration.

The Washington Post noted just some of the studies as of June 2018 (original links):

The New York Times calculated 1,052 deaths through October.
The Center for Investigative Reporting calculated 985 through October.
University of Puerto Rico-Mayagüez professors calculated 822, with a 95 percent confidence range that the total was somewhere between 605 and 1,039.
Pennsylvania State University professors calculated excess deaths of about 500 in September, or a total of 1,085 if the same pattern held in October. That estimate was based on six weeks of mortality records.
A Latino USA analysis, using updated data from Puerto Rico’s Department of Health, calculated 1,194 excess deaths in September and October.
The Post noted that the new estimates hovered around the 1,000 mark.

Then, in June, a Harvard study published in the New England Journal of Medicine estimated the number of deaths from Hurricane Maria at 4,645 instead of the official figure of 64. The researchers had conducted a survey and extrapolated the results — an extremely sloppy methodology.
So... he's still kinda lying...

Trump, that number is probably more right than you like, and yes you failed on delivering aide. Here is where you can find a timeline: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/...-maria/541956/

But none of the sources, who are all over the map in their fatality rates, are?

In other words, the numbers were "massaged" a wee bit. Statistical models, indeed!

CBS? had a story with video yesterday showing an P.R. tarmac with about a million bottles of water STILL sitting since last fall. Undrinkable now.
Maybe spread the blame around.

Trump should have flown there and personally handed out the bottles.
