'Incredibly Distasteful': 'Outnumbered' on Trump Casting Doubt on Hurricane Maria Death Toll

President Donald Trump left joined by FEMA Administrator Brock Long second from left and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen center speaks during a briefing on Hurricane Florence in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington Tuesday

Puerto Rico's governor last month raised Maria's official death toll from 64 to 2,975 after an independent study found that the number of people who succumbed in the sweltering aftermath had been severely undercounted. He went down there, he did what he did. Everybody's panicking. It's not easy.

FEMA administrator Brock Long said Wednesday on MSNBC that "indirect deaths" are often more numerous than deaths caused immediately by a natural disaster. We do feel that they helped us.

"Although you don't believe it... nearly a million boxes of water that were never delivered to the villages", posted Abdiel Santana, a photographer working for a Puerto Rican state police agency who took the pictures. She added: "Damn it: this is NOT about politics this was always about SAVING LIVES". He said it was "about human beings".

Apart from snailfish, they also found various freaky creatures in the environment such as long-legged isopods or Munnopsids . The creatures can swim backwards and upside down, have long legs like a spider, and paddles to help them swim.

Trump's jarring comments, coming as the East Coast braced for a massive storm, offered fresh evidence of his resistance to criticism and his insistence on viewing large and small events through the prism of his own success or failure. It's because better information has been gathered than was available in the chaotic days after Hurricane Maria hit - and, sadly, because more people died as a result of the devastating damage to the island's infrastructure. He then started asking the questions, specifically, "Why don't you call Donald Trump the 'creepy porn president, ' he's the one that had sex with a 4-month-old son at home with my client without a condom". "We are confident that the number - 2,975 - is the most accurate and unbiased estimate of excess mortality to date". Not only because it seemed indifferent to Puerto Rican suffering, but also because it is demonstrably false. The study was based on a statistical model that subtracted the number of people who, in theory, should have died over the same time period as Hurricane Maria from the number of people who actually died during that time.

"We're not where we were. But we will be there, and it's just a matter of time", Cora said. "But you know it's a little bit kind of like frustrating that the topic keeps coming and coming and coming". And I respect him. "If you are a United States citizen, you should be disgusted by this".

Hostin blamed the Jones Act, saying it allowed the USA government to "pillage and rape" the island since its inception in 1920, before asking why Trump didn't have an equal reaction to Maria as President Obama did to Haiti, which isn't even a US territory.
