Puerto Rico Still Suffering From Lack Of Clean Drinking Water

While our headline might not make sense to you, it makes plenty sense to desperate Puerto Ricans like 39-year-old Juan Carlos Oquendo who spoke to CNN about how’s he’s been living since Hurricane Maria:

The water that Mr. Oquendo is referring to was gathered from a potentially contaminated water well. Clean water isn’t exactly in abundance since Maria tore through the beloved island.

According to the EPA:

So, no, it is not “fake news” when Puerto Ricans say they are “dying” and in need serious aid. Sh!t ain’t sweet regardless what Donald tries to tell you about the “great job” that’s he’s doing to help.

By the way, three years later, Flint, Michigan still doesn’t have clean water either. See a trend?
