Oscar-Winning Actress Asks Hillary Clinton to Send Military Planes to Puerto Rico. Just One Problem...
Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette is also deeply involved in political activism.
She was a staunch Hillary Clinton supporter in 2016 and has remained vocally and politically engaged in the first few months of the Trump administration. Puerto Rico is in a state of humanitarian disaster after being hammered by multiple hurricanes. In the wake of the horrific disaster, the U.S. government is sending troops, equipment, and supplies to the island.
Arquette decided to lean into the fray, tweeting a photo of an Air Force C5 Galaxy transport plane and asking if they can be deployed to Puerto Rico.
She tweeted the request at Hillary Clinton:

Unfortunately, because of the results of the 2016 election, and according to a document known as 'The Constitution,' Clinton is not the commander in chief and therefore has no power to send such a plane. However, President Trump can and has been mobilizing the U.S. military to assist the hurricane-ravaged island.
Here are some images of some of the planes Arquette wanted sent to help, actually helping, via Twitchy:

This should make Arquette very happy.
