On this Friday morning Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his running mate Mike Pence landed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, going there to meet victims of the flooding that has killed 13 and forced 30,000 Louisianans to leave their homes.
“I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them, and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours,” Trump said at a rally in Charlotte, North Carolina on Thursday.
On the other hand, President Obama has given no indication that he is going interrupt his luxurious two week vacation in Martha’s Vineyard to even visit with or address the problems of the flood victims in Louisiana. Instead, our POS president played yet another round of golf on Thursday with television star Larry David and Bain Capital co-managing partner Jonathan Lavine. The Obama expensive family vacation is scheduled to continue until Sunday.
This after he slammed George W. Bush for his “flyover” New Orleans, Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina damaged that city, and thousands of people were devastated and died (Can you say “hypocrite?”).
And the other candidate for the Democrats, presidential nominee Hillary “Rotten” Clinton plans on “resting from the campaign trail” and will also not be visiting Louisiana over the weekend or anytime soon. She is feeling “under the weather” and currently has no campaign events scheduled until Sunday, when she plans on raising money for her failing campaign by holding a money maker in Provincetown, Massachusetts with her fellow illuminati pal, Cher. So many stories are speculating on what could be ailing Clinton, that a doctor stated she has Parkinson Disease, nerve maladies, and other illnesses and needs extensive rest. She is not fit to be the next president. On Thursday, Hillary “Rotten” Clinton tweeted:
“Closely monitoring the flooding in Louisiana & Mississippi. The RedCross is helping displaced families in need: http://rdcrss.org/2aYiT5W
WTF? Am I missing something here? Did she just refer the suffering people of Louisiana to the Red Cross? When Trump is there with his soon-to-be Vice President, addressing the people directly, taking precious time out of his own campaign? Hillary, where are your priorities?
On Wednesday the Baton Rouge Advocate pressured our current president to “take a break from his vacation and visit Louisiana,” to which he refused. The paper stated:
“The optics of Obama golfing while Louisiana residents languished in flood waters was striking. It evoked the precedent of the passive federal response to the state’s agony in 2005 (during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina), a chapter of history no one should ever repeat,” the paper said, adding:
Now that the flood waters that have ravaged Louisiana are receding, it’s time for President Barack Obama to visit the most anguished state in the union right now; he should have already been there.
Last week, as torrential rains brought death, destruction and misery to Louisiana President Obama continued his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard, a playground for the posh and well-connected, and his younger daughter Sasha worked in a posh job, serving tables at one of Martha’s Vineyard eateries and his daughter Malia partied her ass off, smoking pot in a photo op at one point like her famous father.
Back to the flooding and devastation in Louisiana: We have ‘played this song in Louisiana before,’ people, and we don’t deserve a replay of it. In 2005, a vacationing President George Bush made a fly-over the state and became a permanent symbol of official government neglect of the victims of Hurricane Katrina. President Obama famously campaigned on this very issue, calling it an “aloofness” by President Bush and he lied, promising that he would be a more responsible and compassionate president.
The mainstream media, who were so critical of President George W. Bush’s handling of the Katrina flooding of New Orleans in 2005, has shown no such criticism of President Obama’s “aloofness” and approach to this year’s Louisiana flooding.
I wonder what the crooked and biased media will say about Trump and Pence’s visit this morning to the victims of the Louisiana flooding, because it was definitely not a “photo-op” as their Democratic governor stated. This visit showed the true and compassionate character of our future president and vice-president.
