    Ponce, Puerto Rico (CNN)Puerto Rico Gov. Wanda Vázquez Garced fired the island's emergency manager, hours after a warehouse filled with supplies was discovered.

    The emergency aid is believed to be from when Hurricane Maria hit the island two years ago, the governor said.

    Carlos Acevedo, director of Puerto Rico's Office of Emergency Management, was dismissed Saturday. The governor appointed Maj. Gen. José J. Reyes, the adjutant general of the Puerto Rico National Guard, to replace him.

    Earlier on Saturday, numerous pallets of water and other boxes with emergency supplies were found at a warehouse in the earthquake ravaged city of Ponce.

    ================================================================

    They lied and lied and lied. For them to claim that only this Emergency Director knew is pathetic. This warehouse is state of the art and located on the same campus as a government office.

    Word finally leaked out and it took the citizens who raided the facility last week to expose the corruption.

    Apparently, ORANGE MAN WAS NOT BAD.

    It is quite clear that Puerto Rico used a tragedy to push a political agenda abandoning their people for partisan gain.

    A means to an ends.

    I dont fell sorry for the people of Puerto Rico at all. They will still vote for the same type of people that would do this to them. They deserve the government they elected.

    This is exactly why Trump says the news is fake and the media are the enemy of the people. This right here is a prime example.

    Seems Trump is right even when he "has no evidence"...

    Remember they smeared him to hell and back and tried to make the word corrupt "racist".

    Democrats are so used to being wrong that they don't even care anymore. The media will never bring up their smear attacks on Trump for calling these people out. I believe this was the instance where we were all told he was throwing paper towels at people from a helicopter. That's one of the dumbest things I've heard.

    Who is this "they"? Why is the aid being given by the US government without them knowing where it ends up?

    It actually reminds everybody from the GOP party, corrupting the government of Ukraine.

    It "ended up" in the hands of the Local Puerto Rican government. We knew exactly where it went. Did you want more mouths to feed/house on the ground to distribute it too? That would be called stupid.

    ROFL! The Ukraine was the Democratic Party's piggy bank. You are 180 degrees off. I bet you voted for Hillary Clinton too.

    And this surprises anyone? The islands and everyone else to our south are all corrupt scumbags for the most part. Entire countries are controlled by drug dealers for fracks sake.

    Hiding their tail because if you admit Latin Americans or Islanders are corrupt, you’re just a filthy racist :)

    Meanwhile our political Left blamed everything on Trump even though thinking people KNEW that the corrupt government officials were squirreling things away. Isn't it weird how very often it finally turns out that rather than it having really been Orange Man Bad it actually was a bunch of leftists . . . gone . . . bad?

    Our corrupt political class cannot admit that Trump was right - about anything.

    Raise your hand if you would hide hurricane relief from hurricane victims so you could try to hurt orange man politically...

    Don't expect any outrage from Democrats here. Most would surely do the same in the in their shoes.
    The real question is... What action would a Democrat not justify to hurt trump politically?

    It went to the PR government to give to the citizens. That's why Trump said they were lying when they tried to say we didn't help. Come on dude.

    You can tell how disingenuous neo-communist are by imagining what they would say if Republicans did something like this. Be MSM news 24/7. They would try to impeach trump for it.

    If you listen to neo-communist and take them seriously, you are the one who will look stupid.

    Last time I checked it was the Trump, the main GOP dude who was corrupting Ukraine.
