Lin-Manuel Miranda says Trump is 'going straight to hell' for Puerto R…


Celebrities were appalled to see President Donald Trump tweeting an attack on Carmen Yulín Cruz, the Mayor of San Juan, as Puerto Rico is still recovering from the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria — none more so than Lin-Manuel Miranda.

“You’re going straight to hell, @realDonaldTrump. No long lines for you. Someone will say, ‘Right this way, sir.’ They’ll clear a path,” the Hamilton creator, whose family is from Vega Alta, Puerto Rico, wrote in a series of tweets on Saturday. “[Cruz] has been working 24/7. You have been GOLFING. You’re going straight to hell. Fastest golf cart you ever took. Did you tweet this one from the first hole, 18th hole, or the club? Anyway, it’s a lie. You’re a congenital liar.”

During a news conference on Friday, Cruz begged Trump “to take charge and save lives.”

“This is what we got last night,” she said, “four pallets of water, three pallets of meals, and 12 pallets of infant food — which I gave them to the people of Comerio, where people are drinking off a creek. So, I am done being polite. I am done being politically correct. I am mad as hell.” Addressing Trump specifically, Cruz added, “We are dying, and you are killing us with the inefficiency and the bureaucracy.”

Trump then lashed out at Cruz on Saturday morning by claiming she has “poor leadership ability” and how the people of Puerto Rico “want everything to be done for them when it should be a community effort.” The president tweeted, “10,000 Federal workers now on Island doing a fantastic job. The military and first responders, despite no electric, roads, phones etc., have done an amazing job. Puerto Rico was totally destroyed.”
