“You’re out there having fun swimming, and he’s making deals on a golf course.”
Former “The Daily Show” correspondent Jordan Klepper, who now hosts his own show, “The Opposition With Jordan Klepper,” took to the streets of San Juan, Puerto Rico to figure out why President Donald Trump gave hurricane recovery efforts on the island a perfect “10 out of 10” rating.
Klepper, like Stephen Colbert before him, plays a satirical right-wing version of himself on the show. For those not certain whether or not he’s completely in character, look no further than his interview with San Juan mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz. Klepper condescendingly tells Cruz it’s tough to get supplies there because “you can’t drive a truck” to Puerto Rico. “I don’t know if you realize that,” says Klepper. Cruz sarcastically replies, “That’s right, ’cause we are an island surrounded by water,” adding, “We didn’t know that until this happened.” Laughter ensues. Klepper replies, “Well, that’s what I’m saying. It’s difficult.”
It’s all pretty funny if you can stop being sad for Puerto Rico or mad at the administration long enough to see the irony. The live studio audience laughter helps, too.
Later in the episode, Klepper sits down with the President of The Hispanic Federation, José Calderón.

The two talked about the state of Puerto Rico and what people can do to help survivors of Hurricane Maria, including donating and calling their members of Congress to make sure they don’t forget about the island.
