Hurricane season has been incredibly rough for Puerto Rico this year.
First, the island bore the brunt of Hurricane Irma. But the worst was Hurricane Maria, which knocked out electricity across the island.
The disaster in Puerto Rico is horrible for the people. In fact, it’s so bad officials there have described conditions as “apocalyptic,” according to CNN.
With the situation so dire, former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton decided to politicize it. What did she do?
Clinton fired off the following tweet to President Donald Trump:
President Trump, Sec. Mattis, and DOD should send the Navy, including the USNS Comfort, to Puerto Rico now. These are American citizens. https://t.co/J2FVg4II0n

Benghazi survivor and former Army Ranger Kris Paronto saw Clinton’s tweet, and he fired back on her asking to “send help.”
Wish u had that sense of urgency while u were watching the ISR feed during our 5th firefight in B-ghazi ?or did u not consider us Americans? https://t.co/Fb0BlftP1J
