The three and a half million American citizens who live in Puerto Rico -- don't know if you knew that, but turns out that yes! -- are without electricity; many are also without water, homes and hospitals. Hurricane Maria's devastation of the island is, in the words of the locals, "apocalyptic." As of last night, four days after Maria struck, "a handful" of the American territory's municipalities had made contact with San Juan, the capital. But never fear! According to Huffington Post reporter Jennifer Bendery, who spoke with senior aides on Capitol Hill, Congress is ready to get the ball rolling on sending aid to Puerto Rico once the Trump administration asks them to, in what they expect will be just one to three weeks.


Donald Trump, who is, against all reason and common decency, the president of America, has tweeted about the mean black men who hate America 17 times since Saturday night. (Foosball is THE DEVIL!) He has tweeted about Puerto Rico twice, five and six days ago.

We will indeed be there to help. In October maybe.

Hillary Clinton, Shadow President, pulled out her own Twitter last night, but instead of using it to tell American companies which employees they should fire (the black ones, obvs), she used it to remind President Propecia's Side Effects Include Mood Swings Mental Fog Anxiety Erectile Dysfunction And Funky Spunk (Just Saying) that he has rather a lot of assets -- no, not his billions of dollars that may or may not exist, the US NAVY -- should he care to deploy them.

The Department of Defense has sent six Navy helicopters and three Marine Osprey planes capable of search and rescue and damage assessments. The Coast Guard, National Guard, and FEMA are also on the scene. And yet, apparently, there is even more aid needed! Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello

did not criticize President Donald Trump personally and praised promises of help the president made before the hurricane, as well as the response of the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Still, the island awaits a federal disaster declaration for 24 out of its 78 municipalities.

Good luck, Governor. The president seems a bit distracted right now.

Cripes the News has been awful lately! And so Yr Editrix suggested we find some good, positive news. Especially after we pitched writing a Wonket about this Mother Jones story on how global warming may be killing the whales, even though Donald Trump knows their prince. (Reply: "Nope. FOR SURE NOT THAT.") And so, as a reminder that a gooder world is possible and apropos of nothing at all that definitely didn't set your Editrix off on Twitter, where she has been stewing and bitching most shrillfully about the 2016 election and the 2020 election and any terrible similarities thereof and thereupon and therefore and thereto, we present a collection of videos of Elizabeth Warren yelling at big banks and calling for them to be broken up and their criminal operators to go to jail. Puppies and kittens will only get you so far, after all.
