LOU DOBBS (HOST): I'm going to name names. Rick Scott, running for senate in Florida and Ron DeSantis, running for the governorship of Florida both instantly took the side against the man who is pushing their candidacies without any reason, without any skeptical judgment, without any analysis without knowledge of the facts, and sided with those who wanted to go with the highest number, irrespective of whether they were based in reality or fact or anything close to reason. They were not.

They were extrapolations of the wildest form by two universities. I am sad to say, Harvard University and its public policy school, and George Washington University and the Milken Institute. It's a disgrace what they did. They should be ashamed of themselves and they should be apologizing to the American public and the people of Puerto Rico who have had to go through this now again, the number of deaths without again, evidence, without death certificates, without burials, without any factual basis for an analysis of what is Puerto Rico's, one of its greatest tragedies in its history.
