Shadow president Hillary Clinton kicked off her response to the crisis in Puerto Rico Sept. 24 with an “If I were president…” tweet:

That tweet has racked up more than 300,000 likes since, and it has resonated deeply, having given The Resistance a taste of what things would be like were President Clinton running the show. Suddenly, every anti-Trumper on social media was asking, “Why hasn’t Trump sent the USNS Comfort yet?” “When is Trump going to send it?”

Suddenly, those who’d never heard of the Comfort (that is, everybody) were wondering why it hadn’t been readied and dispatched to arrive at port the moment the hurricane passed over.

Calm down, everyone … the hospital ship arrived in Puerto Rico Tuesday, brining with it hospital beds and operating rooms.

Good news, right? Now San Juan’s mayor can take off her “HELP US, WE ARE DYING” shirt and change into something else. Or not.

ABC News’ Jon Karl made note that the ship arrived two weeks after the hurricane struck the island.

What a wonderful time to be alive.
