While Obama continued whacking golf balls at Martha’s Vineyard and Hillary was MIA tending to perhaps an aching hip, Trump meanwhile was on his way to Louisiana with an 18-wheeler full of supplies. While the liberal media along with the mayor tried to downplay his visit, Trump’s service to the locals brought hope and tears to the eyes of those present.
From BizPac Review:
When Donald Trump announced his impending trip to flood-ravaged Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards seemed more than a little cynical, saying through a spokesman, “We welcome him to LA but not for a photo-op. Instead we hope he’ll consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of the storm.”
So was the media. A Friday morning LA Times headline read, “Donald Trump’s challenge in touring Louisiana flooding: Showing concern, not opportunism.”
And when Air Trump did land in Baton Rouge, beating both his Democratic opponent and the sitting President, who seemed much more interested in avoiding water traps on the golf course than showing concern for fellow citizens whose lives are literally UNDER WATER, liberal journalists downplayed his visit, including a ‘story’ entitled, “Watch Donald Trump Spend Exactly 49 Seconds ‘Helping Out’ Louisiana Flood Victims.”
Except Trump didn’t just show up for a “photo-op,” or to spend a few seconds “helping out.” Instead, the man actually brought an 18-wheeler transfer truck full of supplies to help people in need, right where they are.
This is the type of leader who America needs. One that gives a crap for the people that he leads. Classy move! Hillary and Obama, not so much.
