2017: Dem senator on break from corruption trial calls Trump’s leadership ‘shameful’

**Written by Doug Powers

Accusing somebody else of shaming their office in the middle of your own corruption and bribery trial takes some Godzilla-sized chutzpah, but Sen. Menendez is up to the challenge:

Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., told President Trump to “grow up” after the president accused the mayor of San Juan, Carmen Yulin Cruz, of demonstrating poor leadership as the island works to recover from Hurricane Maria.

“Mr. President, I just saw this in PR. Attacking Mayor @CarmenYulinCruz isn’t doing a damn thing to clean it up & begin recovery. Grow up!” Menendez tweeted Saturday, along with an aerial photo of structures destroyed by Hurricane Maria.


Pres.Trump is so unfamiliar w/ what real leadership looks like, that when San Juan Mayor @CarmenYulinCruz shows it, he attacks her. Shameful https://t.co/0ZwYnA6jwR

Hey, what politician wouldn’t want a character voucher from a congressman who’s been hit by the feds with multiple charges of fraud and bribery?
