Jennifer Rubin: Trump 'Killed' the Puerto Rico Hurricane Victims -- 'Twice'

September 15th, 2018 4:52 PM

Jennifer Rubin wasn't satisfied with accusing President Trump of having "killed" the Puerto Rico hurricane victims. Nope, Trump killed them "twice," according to The Washington Post columnist that the paper still describes as writing "from a center-right perspective."

Today on Joy Reid's MSNBC show, AM Joy, commenting on President Trump's disputing of the Puerto Rico death toll, "center-right" Rubin said: "Donald Trump has killed those people twice. Once through neglect in oversight, and secondly, disgracing [sic] that they died at all."

For good measure, Rubin analogized Trump's position to Holocaust denial:

"And that's what death denial, that's what Holocaust denial, that's what all these denial syndromes are all about, is killing the person twice." 



This kind of irresponsible, unhinged accusation against President Trump is what passes for sage commentary on the MSNBC air and in the pages of The Washington Post.
