Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló official resident remains under siege as hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered this week outside the La Fortaleza that serves as the governor’s official residence.

Puerto Ricans are calling for Rosselló’s resignation after leaked online chats show him insulting women, political opponents and mocking victims of Hurricane Maria, one of the most devastating natural disasters to hit the island territory.

Amid the outcry, the media-friendly governor has avoided public appearances since July 11, making only four brief appearances, breaking from his usual three or four lengthy press conferences in addition to multiple media appearances.

President Trump called out Puerto Rico as a cesspool of corruption a while back and the MSM went crazy calling Trump a racist. It’s like Trump has a crystal ball or something.
