Homeland security adviser pushes upbeat PR campaign for Puerto Rico

They're more concerned with optics and PR, than doing the hard work at hand.

Bossert, back from a trip to Puerto Rico earlier in the week, says it's "still an urgent situation," but that the administration has "a strong ground game in place on the island with military leadership":

"I hope to turn the corner on our public communications ... I recommend that [this weekend] we use the general theme of supporting the governor and standing with the people of Puerto Rico to get them food, water, shelter and emergency medical care."

"Monday and Tuesday we can pivot hopefully to a theme of stabilizing as we address temporary housing and sustaining the flow of commodities and basic government services, including temporary power. After that we focus on restoration of basic services throughout next week and next weekend."

"Then we start a theme of recovery planning for the bright future that lies ahead for Puerto Rico. Planned hits, tweets, tv bookings and other work will limit the need for reactionary efforts."

"The storm caused these problems, not our response to it. We have pushed about as much stuff and people through a tiny hole in as short a timeframe as possible."

3. WTF is he talking about..."themes"?

That how crisis management teams work to put out fires and stop the bleeding so they can buff up a client's tarnished reputation. Sorry, no matter how much lipstick these flacks are slopping on Tump, it doesn't change the fact that he's a bumbling, incompetent liar.
