Clinton pressed Trump to deploy hospital ship Comfort to Puerto Rico. Now its preparing to go.

Trump is an idiot and luckily we had Hilary Clinton out there to tell trump that we need to send a hospital ship to Puerto Rico., Trump is a stupid person and was too busy with his NFL tweets to care about Puerto Rico https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/checkpoint/wp/2017/09/26/clinton-pressured-trump-to-deploy-hospital-ship-comfort-to-puerto-rico-now-its-on-the-way/?tid=pm_world_pop&utm_term=.8aa97d45e30d

As the devastation from Hurricane Maria became more apparent Sunday, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton implored President Trump and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to help the people of Puerto Rico. Send the Navy, she tweeted, especially the hospital ship USNS Comfort.

Two days later, Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Brock Long announced that the Navy will soon do exactly that. The decision, disclosed in front of the White House on Tuesday afternoon, was later confirmed by the Navy. It comes after days of critics saying that the U.S. government isn’t doing enough to support hurricane relief in Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory of nearly 3.5 million people that faces months without electricity and a long rebuilding process.

Navy Cmdr. Mike Kafka, a service spokesman, said that the ship will leave within the next four days, and it will take up to five additional days to reach Puerto Rico. He called the move a “prudent decision in light of current conditions on ground.”

1. Clinton pressed Trump to deploy hospital ship Comfort to Puerto Rico. Now it's on the way.

Without Hillary Clinton, this ship would not be sent to Puerto Rico. Trump is far too stupid to do this without help

Maybe she learned something after her total and terminal failure.

Do I believe this story is true, hell no. Trumps military brass had already assessed this move and were already preparing the ship for departure.

This is just more 'fake news'. It is propaganda. Clinton didn't do shit.

FEMA and the Army Corps of Engineers have been in Puerto Rico since last weekend getting power restored to the ports and airports so that ships like this could safely come to shore.

I just went looking for an old cartoon online - I have it in my computer but I don't post pics of anything from here, so I'll have to describe it since I'm not spending any more time looking for it.

The twin towers - one labeled "Social", the other "Security". Bush flying a toyish looking little plane labeled "Bush Budget". The caption read "Now there's one terrible pilot!"

Good for a chuckle...

51. Sick Puerto Ricans suffer as naval hospital ship sits mostly emptynobody knows how to get to it

Trump's incompetence is killing US citizens https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/10/17/1707549/-Sick-Puerto-Ricans-suffer-as-naval-hospital-ship-sits-mostly-empty-nobody-knows-how-to-get-to-it

This is just sad reporting from CNN:

Sammy Rolon is living in a makeshift clinic set up at a school. He has cerebral palsy and epilepsy and is bedridden. He's waiting for surgery that was scheduled before Hurricane Maria smashed into Puerto Rico. Now, he can't even get the oxygen he needs.

There is help available for the 18-year-old -- right offshore. A floating state-of-the-art hospital, the USNS Comfort, could provide critical care, his doctor says.

But nobody knows how to get him there. And Sammy is not alone.
The US Comfort hospital ship was deployed much later than it should have been but even though it's been in Puerto Rico about two weeks now, it's only at 13 percent capacity (33 of 250 beds being used).

Unfortunately, that's just the tip of the iceberg for the challenges facing the U.S. territory. The AP reports that people are bathing in contaminated water and some are even drinking from contaminated streams.

With hundreds of thousands of people still without running water, and 20 of the island’s 51 sewage treatment plants out of service, there are growing concerns about contamination and disease.

“People in the U.S. can’t comprehend the scale and scope of what’s needed,” said Drew Koslow, an ecologist with the nonprofit Ridge to Reefs who recently spent a week in Puerto Rico working with a portable water purification system.
Meanwhile, thousands of Puerto Ricans are fleeing the island without plans to return.
