    Help me out here. All the power lines are on the ground. So how do they get the electric power from a ship anywhere? Oh they can tie up and start pumping electrical power. But other than electrocuting people and animals what would be the goal? I admit dead people don’t need food or water. Is that your plan?

    There's been numerous news reports of people going down to PR to view the disaster.
    They all give the recovery a zero whereas the orange anus gives himself a10.

    I guess he thinks electrical lines, transformers and substations can be airlifted into place.
