    Very typical for the Trump administration, hiring wholly unqualified people to do really important jobs. Puerto Rico would be Trump's Katrina if they weren't brown people living in an American territory. Sad.

    Compare that to Chef Jose Andres who served over 3 million meals.

    Wut!?:confused: Five canceled government contracts, company of one, not named Jesus.* Even a blind man can see THAT many red flags.:rolleyes:

    *Everyone knows when you need to feed a large number of people, hire a guy named Jesus. There's a cook in my neighborhood named Jesus who makes 5000 tacos a day, damn good tacos too.

    Wait...they awarded a $156 million contract to a single person "company" to provide 30 million meals to a disaster zone? Someone thought this was a good plan?

    Bu the better question is...has there been any backlash, or is this chick just getting away with it?

    This is the first I have heard of it. Trump slams the media, calls them fake news, but if anything they have his back on this one. Not a peep on my news channels.

    This “company” has been getting contracts to supply all kinds of things for the government for years now. It’s like some kind of money laundering scheme you’d hear about involving the CIA. This is really bizarre. This one is low hanging fruit for the OP’s daily anti-Trump thread, but this has been going on since Obama was president.

    Ha just noticed a certain someone got suspended. What did he do?

    Y'all know that government contract joke, right? I bet there's a lot of kickbacks happening here.:mad:

    It has nothing to do with Trump. Many local, state and federal government contracts give preference to Minority and Woman-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBE). I'm sure this is how she got awarded the contract.

    Typically, if you do business through FBO and screw up enough, you get blacklisted. I wonder what's going on.

    It’s not Trump’s fault, but he could fix it. He won’t, because he’s a racist moron who probably forgot he’s the president of PR and has reverted to calling them a **** hole country.

    Plausible conclusion, but do you have any evidence whatsoever that leads you to it?
