Sen. Marco Rubio took exception to a Miami Herald article with a sexy headline that implied Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda said he was doing more to help Puerto Rico than the federal government.
“As much as anyone else, I have called out the shortcomings in the initial response to #HurricaneMaria in #PuertoRico,” Rubio wrote on Twitter. “But to say entertainers doing more for #PuertoRico than military @fema & local responders is inaccurate & unfair.”
He was referring to this Herald story, whose headline originally read: Lin-Manuel Miranda says he is doing more for Puerto Rico than the government.
But as Miranda points out the story does not hold up that headline, and he pushed back at Rubio.
The headline has been changed. It now reads: Lin-Manuel Miranda hopes new Puerto Rico song will inspire a stronger federal response
