Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriquez and a poorly named Marc Anthony

As the unprecedented fallout from hurricanes Irma and Maria continues to reveal itself in Puerto Rico, Jennifer Lopez has promised that help is on the way.

Appearing at a Sunday press conference with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the singer and actress announced that she is donating $1 million to the ravaged U.S. territory.

"Alex Rodriguez and I, who are both New Yorkers, are using all our resources and relationships in entertainment, sports and business to garner support for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean," Lopez said.

Rodriguez, who is dating Lopez, lived in the Dominican Republic growing up and Lopez's family hails from Puerto Rico.

Lopez is also working closely with ex-husband Marc Anthony, whose roots also go back to Puerto Rico, to mobilize aid to both Mexico and the Caribbean.

But Marc Anthony also said something else, giving us a hint at why he is Jenny from the Block's ex-husband. And also why Marc Anthony is nothing like the Consul of the Roman Republic Mark Anthony who made a most eloquent speech in Shakespeare's play "Julius Ceasar."

Fox News reports that:

Marc Anthony has some scathing words for Donald Trump, pleading with the president to forget about football and focus instead on hurricane-hammered Puerto Rico.

Anthony tweeted on Monday night: "Mr. President shut the f--- up about NFL. Do something about our people in need in #PuertoRico. We are American Citizens too."

I don't care if you voted for Hillary and went door to door trying get your neighbors to also vote for her. If you are trying to get help for storm ravaged Puerto Rico, the absolute dumbest thing you can now do is to curse out the man who controls FEMA, the U.S. military's equipment and rescue missions, the Federal mortgage insurance agencies and the broadcast licences of every major television and radio station in America at a time when Puerto Rico needs media ability to help facilitate news of voluntary donations efforts to aid Puerto Rico. And before the hurricane hit Puertor Rico, it also had a financial debt crisis. According to Wikipedia, Puerto Rico has over $70 billion in outstanding debt and a pension debt crisis of $50 billion dollars "after decades of mismanagement." I believe the President has great power concerning government agency loans and has the ability to sign or veto bills passed in Congress that could aid Puerto Rico with all their problems.

I don't recall Sylvester Turner, the Democrat Mayor of Houston, cursing or vehemently criticizing President Trump for his efforts in helping the citizens of Houston after Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and that city. That is because Mayor Turner did not curse the President and rather met with him in order to find ways to help his city recover. But  Marc Anthony has won a number of American Music Awards, Billboard Latin Music Awards, Grammy Awards and Latin Grammy Awards. At this point, I'm sure that Marc Anthony thinks that those are bigger achievements than getting elected and running a major American city government. And besides, Mayor Turner never dated Jenny from the Block, you see.

So who has better judgement, Grammy winner Marc Anthony or Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez? That was a rhetorical question.
