San Juan Mayor Hits Back At Trump With T-Shirt

Mediaite reports:

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico that President Donald Trump has been beefing with decided to make a statement against the administration by wearing a t-shirt that read “NASTY” across the front — a way of re-appropriating the insult Trump used against her.

During a Spanish speaking interview with Univision, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz made a clear statement to the president with her self-owning shirt. This wasn’t the first time Cruz made a statement via clothing, as she also wore a “HELP US, WE ARE DYING” t-shirt last week as a way of pointing out the graveness of the island’s situation.

Trump fans are screaming on Twitter, as you might expect. That many of them have “deplorable” in their user name only makes this more hilarious.

  • Bad Tom

    I’ll take a Nasty Strong Woman over a Deplorable Gun Humper any fucking day of the week!

    • edrex

      and nasty strong women are typically more interesting, intelligent and thoughtful, unlike gun humpers.

      • Bj Lincoln

        We are. Thank you.

      • DonnaLee

        We don’t need big guns to show who is better.

    • GanymedeRenard

      Amen, brother.

  • bkmn

    Good for her. Shove it right back in his face – that is the only thing a bully can understand.

    As for those twitter users – note that if their handle has a bunch of numbers after the letters of their name they are likely a bot, either Russian or paid for by Mercer or someone else.

    • Nowhereman

      Interesting. I’ve heard that in Europe they are trying to educate their people on what to look for and how to spot Russian interference. Not much chance of that being done here I’ll bet. That would be a good project for the DNC to do.

    We should learn to punch first.

    • safari

      (At least that’s how I feel at the moment.)

  • Ken M

    FINALLY TIME FOR TRUMP”S SPEECH

    • safari

      Look at all the warm friendships. Have a good day.

      • Ken M

        ugh…lol

  • Ken M

    if you care…lol

  • another_steve

    Lol. Now the sexual predator’s going to wage tweet war against a Puerto Rican woman.

    Way to win the Hispanic vote – the fastest growing demographic in the United States – Republican Party!

    • bambinoitaliano

      But ..but ….Tillerson call him a fucking moron! So much outrage so little time to tweet. Boo hoo!!!

      • another_steve

        His little fingers will soon be busy tweeting.

        Little fingers, little penis.

        • Todd20036

          Not always true, I can assure you

          • another_steve

            Well you would know, wouldn’t you.

            After all, you’ve seen every penis east of the Mississippi.

          • Todd20036

            Moi?

          • another_steve

            Yes, you. I know your type. In my younger days, I partied with your type.

            Today, with a Medicare card in my wallet and a decent federal pension, I’ve sort of schlubed-out.

          • Todd20036

            LOL. Dude, I turn 50 this April.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            You go, gurl!

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Nor is the converse always true, either.

        • Cattleya1

          Little fingers, little penis, little brain.

        • Rolf

          And little brain.

    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      Hispanics are also the fastest growing repressed vote

    • Phillip in L.A.

      This is one battle he should know he can’t win, but given his . . . difficulties . . . well, probably not

      • another_steve

        The name of his game seems to be “hold onto the base.” “The base,” meaning his deplorables. They’ll love his going after this “dark-skinned woman from some dark-skinned place far far away.”

        The support of that 32-36 percent or whatever of Americans is what’s keeping the Republican Party from abandoning him.

        To hell with what the rest of the country thinks of him.

  • Gendarme

    Love love love it. Viva Puerto Rico!

  • Rex

    Ya know, I like her.

  • easygoingmister

    I want one! Not black though. Maybe a dark admiral blue with white letters.

      Okaaaay, this song was posted farther up the page by bambinoitaliano. Did Tipper Gore take control and delete it?

      This was the song that sent Tipper Gore over the edge

      • bambinoitaliano

        I deleted it after seeing Picky Pecker already posted 🙂

      • Phillip in L.A.

        I also posted it a-way up there. One can never have enough Nasty Girls around.

        • William

          I worried that the explicit version of the song had been removed because of the line “seven inches or more”.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Not in my version (I have the 12″-45), from “New Black Funk” series (Belgium)

    • Phillip in L.A.

      There are never enough Nasty Girls around, when one needs one! (See my post wa-a-a-a-a-a-y upthread; I think mine has better sound-quality, plus, some lyrics!)

  • PickyPecker
    • another_steve

      Girl could have been President today.

      My heart hurts. 🙁

    • Nowhereman

      That’s a keeper. Back in my day it was “Well-behaved women seldom make history.” It’s making a comeback apparently. You can get t-shirts on Amazon.

  • Butch

    Trump’s not used to them Uppity Women mouthing off at him. I thoroughly approve.

  • Rex

    Who said “when I get attacked, I attack back”? I believe he was recently referred to as a f***ing moron.

    • Todd20036

      I doubt he does much fucking these days.

  • Sam_Handwich
    • PickyPecker

      Has to pack for his Friday Firing party.

    • bzrd

      interesting

    • another_steve

      Not difficult to imagine that he too is on the chopping block. The Sexual Predator-in-Chief has had a terrible week or so.

      Somebody has to pay the price.

    • bambinoitaliano

      I want to know what Kelly call him behind the scene. Fucking Dotard?

    • Smokey

      Now we know why tRump was rage-tweeting on his way to Vegas; no one to restrain or distract him.

  • FAEN

    Good for her-Cheeto is, as his Sec of State put it, a “moron.”

    • shellback

      Not to mince words, but I’ve heard it was “Fucking Moron.”

      • another_steve

        Didn’t one of MSNBC’s journalists say in a tweet that that’s what he’s purported to have said?

        I think Joe posted her tweet in a thread earlier today.

      • FAEN

        I stand corrected 😊

  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • MikeBx2

    I am loving the mayor of San Juan.

  • Halou

    I was just about to say that the ‘hashtag deplorables’ would go off the rails.

  • William

    Did Samantha Bee send that?

  • JAKvirginia

    My tee says “TASTY”. But, yeah, “NASTY” could work, too.

    Anyhow, good on her.

    Muchas gracias por poner el video, Jose.Mi.Dios. He estado buscandolo.

  • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

    “Trump fans are screaming on Twitter, as you might expect. That many of them have “deplorable” in their user name only makes this more hilarious.”

    And what do they say when that is pointed out to them?

    • Rambie

      What you’d expect, “I know you are, but what am I?”

    • Steverino

      Right-wingers are accustomed to “controlling the narrative” and they are very good at it, even wresting a narrative away and appropriating it as their own, such as calling real news “fake news.”

      The mayor of San Juan is driving them nuts because this is one of the rare times one of the good people is controlling the narrative, and it is a narrative of truth and defiance. She clearly has the moral high ground here.

      • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

        Yes, I’ve been listening to Michelangelo Signorile’s radio show today and some outraged conservative called in to tell Mike he needed to “watch his mouth” and not disrespect the president. When Mike pointed out the disrespect directed at President Obama, the guy hung up.

        • billbear1961

          Not to mention the relentless lack of respect Trump shows to everyone who disagrees with him about ANYTHING, the SLANDER he is frequently guilty of that no one demands he APOLOGIZE for, that he has NEVER apologized for!!

          He’ll GET respect when he SHOWS it to OTHERS, God damn the evil, hateful, ugly, country-destroying BASTARD!!

      • Daveed_WOW

        Remember it’s the Left that first used the expression Fake News. The left is also the first group to use the term Politically Correct as a sort of consciousness-raising and self-policing. The left also started the word Triggered as a gesture of sensitivity on disturbing issues. Notice how the Right took all of them away. Thanks, media.

        Lately, they’ve been using the word Racist to describe anyone who is against racism. The Right is WEIRD.

        • Steverino

          You are exactly right on all points.

        • The_Wretched

          Screw up the meaning of words and it gets hard to communicate certain ideas. The US christians have been at it for a while. Sometimes you need a xtain to English dictionary.

            “War is Peace.
            Freedom is slavery.

            if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.”

            George Orwell kind of nailed it 70 years ago.

        • ColdCountry

          That racist thing really IS weird.

          • Daveed_WOW

            One day my Evil Stepmother said “can’t we just put an end to racism once and for all”. I was delighted to hear this until I realized that the Evil Hillbilly Charlene meant she wanted people to stop calling her a racist. I told her that if she wants to stop “racism” she should stop…er…acting like a racist. We no longer speak.

        I wonder if there’s any extra Puerto Rican pool boys that now want to move to the states? Asking for a friend.

        • netxtown

          thank you for looking out for me…..:)

        • Ben in Oakland

          Somehow, I think that friend’s name is Jerry.

          I’m telling you that for a friend.

    • Nowhereman

      I don’t think that he realized who she was until they shook hands and she told him that it wasn’t about politics, it was about saving lives. He jumped back and did his thankyouthankyouall spiel and ran away from her. He is not used to strong smart women who will not back down. I can hardly wait to see what happens if he goes after Rachel Maddow or Joy Reid.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        I really want a Sassy Donald Trump of that moment with Mayor Cruz.

      • Bj Lincoln

        Drumpf is afraid of strong women. That is why he tries to make one of us run away or admit we are used POS’s by grabbing our pussies or trying to kiss us on the lips right off the bat. If we run, we are the chickenshit. If we stay, it’s OK to treat me like crap. His odd behavior with Merkel was because he wanted her to appear confused. A confused woman should not be a leader.
        I bet his mother was a bitch

        • ETownCanuck

          I’d almost guarantee that she was.

    • JT

      … and you’re constipated as usual.

  • bambinoitaliano
  • barrixines

    I find Mayor Cruz very compelling to watch. There is not a false note when she speaks. Not for one second do her eyes not match her words.

    • Phillip in L.A.

      👍 😎 🦄 💋 🌈

    • Nowhereman

      You can see her pause to get it right, too, unlike Donnie 2 Scoops who just can’t help himself once he gets he gets his rally hat on. I do think that we will be seeing more of her. I’d like to see her as Governor. She is a wonderful leader and advocate for Puerto Rico.

  • William

    After Trump is dragged away in leg irons, would Mayor Cruz like a job in Washington?

    • GanymedeRenard

      Unfortunately, she’s too brown. /S

      ______

      Needless to say, both she and PR’s governor are white (the latter being of Catalan descend, incidentally.) Only difference is, she speaks ‘Messican’ as opposed to ‘Murkin’. This might be mindblowing for the usual racist idiots, I know.

    I wish some of the “politicians” here on the BIg Island would show at least a smidgen of the outrage that the mayor shows.

    • billbear1961

      They’re always so goddamned AFRAID to show fully justified anger at the right’s OUTRAGES!!

  • colo303

    Too bad there isn’t a great translation for Nasty in Spanish.

    • jimbo65

      Closest would be cochino. Which means pig. And that well describes 45.

      • Paul

        But that is not what she wants to convey. She is not
        the pig but a “NASTY” woman a la Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren

        • TuuxKabin

          And a lot of women friends of ours.

      • Phillip in L.A.

        ¿Sí, pero qué de un adjetivo? Cochino es un nombre.

    • GanymedeRenard

      ‘Asqueroso’, ‘grosero’, ‘desagradable’, depending on the context. 🙂

      • barrixines

        I think desagradable is a close fit in this circumstance. The only role Trump can conceive for women is to agradar.

        • GanymedeRenard

          And be objects of ‘pussy-grabbar’… LOL (sorry for my silly phonetic attempt to make rhyme two different languages’s vocabulary.) XD

          • TuuxKabin

            Made me laugh!

        • Phillip in L.A.

          Agree, although from her pov I might choose “grosero”–referring back to him!

          Also, sucio, repugnante, repulsivo, horrible, antipático, malo, obsceno, molesto, y feo, depending on context.

    • Phillip in L.A.

      There is–it just depends on context!

  • jimbo65

    Luv her!

  • Johnny Wyeknot

    This is fundraiser material and I’m in!

  • Nowhereman

    They should have presented Trump a shirt that says “Pendejo” and told him it means “Big shot hero” in Spanish.

    • katkelly57

      And on the back, “Come merida”…and tell him it means, “I like to eat bigly”.

      • Gianni

        i believe you were trying for: “Como mierda.”

        • katkelly57

          Como mierda is…like shit.

          • Gianni

            I was thinking of Trump wearing such a shirt meaning “I eat shit.”

  • Dunkerblinker

    Love her!! But, I see that shirt and wanna call her Ms Jackson…

  • Bluto

    Hey deplorables, “Fuck your feelings!” Remember that?

    Nevertheless, she persisted.
