This week’s “Alternative Facts” evaluated press coverage of the Trump administration’s disaster relief efforts in Puerto Rico, amidst allegations that the federal government’s response to the crisis has been lethargic.

The show also discussed a wave of pre-game protests by NFL players, which have commanded intense press attention.


Criticism of the administration’s efforts in Puerto Rico appeared this week after former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton pilloried the administration on Twitter.

Brian Fallon, Clinton’s former press secretary, characterized Trump’s posture toward Puerto Rico as “racist neglect.”

Alternative Facts then discussed anti-racism protests in the NFL, which have elicited a hostile reaction from fans. The Daily Caller reported Friday that the League’s net favorability dropped to 17 percent in the aftermath of the protests according to the Morning Consult. The favorability figure is the lowest the League has registered since Morning Consult began tracking.
