    Right? Trump makes shit up and then demands that everyone believes him. Everything is a conspiracy against him too.

    He thinks this won't hurt him, because somehow, ridiculously, people living in Puerto Rico don't get to vote for their own president. What the fuck? A country that goes around the world demanding others have democracy, doesn't even have democracy.

    That's not a new virus and you're already chronically inflicted.

    Much like his initially calling the Fort Hood shooting 'a case of workplace violence' and the Benghzi terrorist attack a 'protest over a video', many people don't remember that Obama called 9/11/01 A COMMUTER / TRANSPORTATION MISHAP INVOLVING US AIRLINES....

    The population of Puerto rico before Maria was about 3.5 million.
    The natural mortality rate before Maria was about 8.7/1000.
    How many people does that mean died of natural causes in the six months since Maria? (Which is the number from the 'survey'.)
    DO THE FUCKING MATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Interesting example

    WWII is a good comparison. After the war, much of the infrastructure, medical support, food and water were devastated. Many people died after combat had ended as a result of the war

    They are still victims

    Of course the survey takes into account the expected mortality rate.
    The 3000 is the number of deaths ABOVE that rate

    From what I've read they have no idea how many died and are just averaging a figure.

    Its certainly not accurate.

    Trump misrepresenting the study, creating conspiracy theories about the study and politicizing it are despicable.

    In other words, instead of making a list of all the people who died related to the hurricane, they just threw a bunch of numbers together, adding and subtracted based on their biased theories and came out with a number.

    Shit smells and that report is a real stinker!
