As anger swells over the federal government's failed disaster relief for Puerto Rico, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to cast President Donald Trump as the hero who brought a happily-ever-after ending to the island that was devastated by Hurricane Maria.
Trump, "has your back" is "the real story some in the media refuse to tell," Sanders tweeted Saturday morning.
"I hear the best way to help starving and dying people hit by a
hurricane is to trash talk them and then go golfing," Anne tweeted in response.
The internet had different opinions about the "real story" in Puerto Rico.
"The real story is that people are needlessly dying due to the extremely slow response of the current administration to the crisis," Sheila Kremer fact-checked.
Here are some of the other responses to Sarah Huckabee Sanders trying to re-write the narrative of Puerto Rico:
