When Hurricane Katrina struck in 2006, the media attacked George Bush for his reaction to the flooding as if he had caused them. That was despite the fact that was clear that the delay and confusion in the rescue of victims was caused by the incompetence of Democrat mayor of New Orleans (but of course, the media will NEVER blame a liberal).
Now we have flooding again, this time in Louisiana, with over 40,000 homes damaged and more tens of thousands who had to evacuate. At least thirteen are dead.
Despite that, there is no mention by the corrupt media about the reaction of Obama: nothing/ Imagine the stories by the corrupt media if George Bush were now president and he was vacationing at Martha’s Vineyard and playing golf.
Yet Obama is vacationing on what will be a nineteen day vacation, and, in between golf rounds, he is releasing 15 terrorists from Gitmo who will most certainly join their fellow terrorists to kill Americans. As we reported earlier today, one former Gitmo detainee who returned to Al-Qaeda promised such attacks.
And while Milwaukee burns, Obama does nothing to try to heal the racial divisions, and specifically to tell the young black rioters to stop the rioting. So who is going to do anything? Hillary Clinton hasn’t said a thing about the flooding, aside from a generic Tweet one of her interns posted.
And to that, Donald Trump is coming to the rescue.
Donald Trump announced Thursday that he and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence will be touring flood-ravaged Louisiana on Friday.
ABC News Politics reported that the Republican presidential nominee and his running mate will concentrate on the state’s hardest-hit area of Baton Rouge.
Trump commented on the Louisiana flood Thursday night at the opening of a campaign event in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“We are one nation. When one state hurts, we all hurt — and we must all work together to lift each other up. Working, building, restoring together,” he said, according to The Hill.
CNN contributor and Trump supporter Kayleigh McEnany tweeted:
TRUMP: “Our campaign is about representing the great majority of Americans… who turn on the TV & don’t hear anyone speaking for them.”

Conservative author and syndicated columnist Ben Shapiro, who is no fan of the Republican presidential nominee, had to nonetheless hand it to Trump.
Yet another smart thing. https://t.co/HKjp0tSKwm
