Pitbull Flew Cancer Patients Out of Puerto Rico on His Private Plane

If you’ve seen the news, you’ve probably heard that Puerto Rico was almost entirely destroyed by Hurricane Maria. There’s basically no power, water, food or fuel, meaning 3.4 million of our fellow American citizens are slowly dying while our President is talking about the Commonwealth’s debt to Wall Street as if that’s the most pressing issue. When asked about this humanitarian crisis on American soil, President Trump said, “This is an island sitting in the middle of an ocean. And it’s a big ocean; it’s a very big ocean. And we’re doing a really good job.” Yeah, we’re all going to die because Hillary Clinton couldn’t make people like her more than this idiot.

At least someone is doing something for Puerto Rico, though. As Trump has refused to suspend the Jones Act that disallows foreign ships from transporting relief to Puerto Rico from American ports, rapper Pitbull has lent his private jet to the relief effort, to be used to bring cancer patients to the United States so they can continue to receive chemotherapy.

If you have a private jet and the means to help millions of your fellow citizens in one of the greatest humanitarian crises to take place in our country since the Great Depression, then you have an obligation to help. Donald Trump has a private plane, and it has a gilded interior. Is he sending it to Puerto Rico? No, he’s tweeting about… let me just look at Twitter… oh, the fucking NFL players kneeling during the national anthem. For days now.

Pitbull said “Thank God we’re blessed to help. Just doing my part,” according to the New York Daily News.

It’s nice that someone is doing something to help. Pitbull, who’s real name is Armando Christian Pérez, has also helped build a charter school in Miami. Issues with charter schools aside, he’s donating his time and money to help people in need. I may not be a huge fan of his music (he’s apparently the ninth-worst rapper of all time), but the guy’s heart is in the right place.

Let’s see what President Trump has to say.

Well, at least he said something. God, he reads like that kid everyone groaned at when the teacher called on them in second grade. Well, I’m sure he’s giving this his full attention and… he’s back to talking about the NFL, isn’t he?
