Dem Rep Soto: Hurricane Maria ‘Has Already Become a Katrina’

Screenshot
On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Beat,” Representative Darren Soto (D-FL) stated that the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico “has already become a Katrina.” Soto said, “Well, this has already become a Katrina. We have American citizens, who pledge allegiance to our flag, serve in the military, pay taxes, and they don’t know when the power’s going to get back on. They don’t know whether they’re going to get water, whether they’re going to get food. And so, we need Trump administration to get up and act.” He added that his Katrina statement meant “That it’s an act of negligence, that they completely underestimated the scale of this, and are only now starting to react, after we stood on our desks for days screaming about the lives in jeopardy.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

April Ryan: Al Gore Was ‘Like Chicken Little’ and The Sky ‘Is Falling Now’

Screenshot
During the online “Overtime” segment of Friday’s edition of HBO’s “Real Time,” American Urban Radio Networks White House Correspondent and Washington Bureau Chief and CNN Political Analyst April Ryan stated former Vice President Al Gore was like Chicken Little on climate change, and right now, the sky is falling. Ryan said, “Katrina happened to low-income black people in the 9th Ward. You’re seeing what’s happening in the Virgin Islands. You’re seeing what’s happening in Puerto Rico. People who live on the water — people who are in these communities tend to be those — the least of these. So, I mean, people don’t — and I hate to say this, but this is the way society is, they don’t listen to us. It took a former vice president to stand up and speak. … [H]e was like Chicken Little, ‘The sky is falling. The sky is falling.’ It is falling now.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett

Chuck Schumer: During Our Negotiations Trump Said ‘OK, We Won’t Do the Wall’


This week on the “Pod Save America” podcast, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) detailed the debt ceiling and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy negotiations he had with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and President Donald Trump earlier in the month. Schumer said, “On DREAMers, he said, you know, that he understood that they didn’t come in through any fault of their own, that they’re good Americans, good kids. And then he said he wants the wall in return. And we said ‘No. No wall, Mr. President.’ And he tried that for about 15 minutes, but he’s not going to push me around verbally or any other way.” He added, “And he finally said, “OK, we won’t do the wall. We’ll do some other kind of border security.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
