The idea that the huge death toll on Puerto Rico is "really no one's fault" rather than an urgent question for Congress to investigate through oversight is the perfect encapsulation of @SpeakerRyan utter abandonment of oversight role & any effort to hold Trump accountable https://t.co/AyndrkWuxi

Of course the Zombie-Eyed Granny Starver don’t care — he’s out the door already — but let’s keep reminding those “low info voters” that EVERY SINGLE REPUBLICAN would just as soon see them dead, as long as it didn’t interfere with the GOP crime spree going so well right now…
It would be interesting if there were, say, a Select Committee that gathered evidence to evaluate the thesis that 3,000 dead is "just what happened" https://t.co/pBPGtQsVfS

Lindsey Graham would like to know where those Puerto Rico death toll numbers are coming from like he can’t read a newspaper.

Spoke to more than a dozen House Rs here at the Capitol. Very few had any criticism of the president's handling of the coming storm or his tweets on P.R. Most offered hearty praise. A revealing snapshot of the GOP.
