President Trump has gone on endlessly about what a fantastic job he has been doing in Puerto Rico in response to the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria despite the fact that 85% of the island still remains without electricity as of today.
While the president thinks the response he’s leading is great, the people on the receiving end of the “fantastic” job that FEMA is doing may have a slightly different opinion. Check out, for instance, the emergency rations that FEMA is handing out as shown in this tweet:
These are the White House approved "meals" FEMA reportedly is handing out in Puerto Rico…Vienna sausages, a Nutrigrain bar & f'n Skittles. pic.twitter.com/fyViKthg7W

The nutritionists at FEMA may have calculated that this is a balanced diet, and no one wants to look a gift horse in the mouth, but Skittles? Sorry, but it’s no substitute for clean water and fresh food.
