Who’s nasty? San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz is, and me too!
A day after President Donald Trump visited Puerto Rico, Yulín Cruz wore a t-shirt that bore the term “Nasty,” which is the word that Trump called her a few days ago. In an interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos for “Al Punto,” the mayor discussed her words that prompted Trump to lose it on Twitter, which is common for the president, but I digress.
The Mayor of San Juan, who was very complimentary only a few days ago, has now been told by the Democrats that you must be nasty to Trump.

The tweet above was just one of many.
“Number one, what I said to the president is that this is about saving lives, this is not about politics,” Yulín Cruz told Ramos. “There are people who do everything for a calculative political motive. My only motive is a human motive. We’re talking about life or death,” she added.

Ramos asked Yulín Cruz about her shirt to which she responded by saying: “One of the expressions that the president used to describe me… I was a ‘nasty mayor.’ When it bothers somebody that you’re asking for drinking water, medicine for the sick and food for the hungry, that person has much deeper problems than what we can discuss in an interview.”
Needless to say, people on Twitter were in full support of Cruz and were glad she didn’t allow Trump to intimidate her.
She is right on point with what she is saying and she is not mincing any words. Not backing down from being abused.

The term “nasty” is something Trump likes to say, especially when dealing with women in power. He did so infamously during the presidential campaign when talking about Hillary Clinton.
Yulín Cruz goes on to say that Trump’s visit to Puerto Rico was a disgrace, did you see the video of him throwing the paper towels into a crowd of people as if it were a game?
“There was no exchange with anybody, with none of the mayors,” Yulín Cruz told MSNBC. “And in fact, this terrible, abominable view of him throwing paper towels and throwing provisions at people, it’s really — it does not embody the spirit of the American nation.”
Like you, I support the mayor and continuous effort to help the people of Puerto Rico, which is why you’re thinking, where can I get that shirt?
Well, as we said, this term is nothing new and the shirts have been on the market ever since he called Clinton that, so there’s a slew of options on where to get a “Nasty” shirt.
Most of them do say “Nasty Woman.”
