David Axelrod seems concerned that the US isn’t doing enough for Puerto Rico; notice he makes a passive aggressive dig at President Trump.
Why isn't this huge and growing humanitarian crisis in Puerto Rico commanding more attention and action? Too busy on anthems and epithets.

Of course we’re pretty sure David didn’t understand he was setting up the media for the ultimate embarrassment.
Okay, I get that the Trump-NFL fight gets tons of coverage, but why Puerto Rico is not THE massive focus of the media now is beyond me.

We get it. He was trying to shame Trump for making comments about the NFL, but all he really did was remind us that the media is once again obsessed with Trump and ignoring other stories.
Sorta like they did during the primary and election of 2o16.
And we know how that worked out for them.
Puerto Rico didn't even make the front page of The NY Times. Astonishing lack of compassion for our citizens.

Obama's "My Brother's Keeper" & Hillary's Clinton Foundation have enough COH to buy that island twice. I'm SURE they've got this. …Right?

Now now, this was about Trump not doing enough to fix Puerto Rico. We’re positive David didn’t mean to remind us that Obama and Hillary’s foundations aren’t exactly jumping over themselves to help.
Maybe you should ask someone at CNN?

Sorry, they were too busy being outraged over the idea of Tim Tebow kneeling to pray. Oh wait, that was a different protest, our bad.
Human tragedies don't play well in Jeff Zucker's business plan of heroes/villains in constant conflict (i.e. Reality TV puerile drama).

Oh, and just FYI David:
Senior Hill aide says WH expected to send disaster aid request to Congress in 1st/2nd week of Oct for Puerto Rico. That gets ball rolling.

Sounds like the president is already working on it.
