Trump Used Louisiana As A Photo-Op


Recommended Posts

Don't pretend your candidate would do anything less.

Face it trump probably genuinely cares when people are hurting. Clinton clearly doesn't care and doesn't even try to hide it.

I will say this again, Louisiana is a natural disaster humans couldn't have prevented, Trump shows up to bring citizens together, the others didn't waste their time. Now what about Orlando shooting spree? Man made chaos and the other side shows up to galvanize the separation.

 

 

Milwaukee, Hillary goes to New York and talks to officials there about what to do in Wisconsin. Or was it to figure out where the next riots take place looking spontaneous to what ever Trump says or police do serving citizens. Conductors of organized denial leading orchestrated chaos to happen upon verbal statements from the opposing party.

 

A little top down/bottom up societal squeeze play taking place, Hummmmmm?

 

Oh, I bet if Jindal was still governor Obama and Hillary would have been standing in the rain wading in ankle deep water or standing on a roof top for a photo op.

Trump unloading toys for 49 seconds. It's painfully obvious that he hates pretending to care about people.

If any candidate really cared they would be there without the press, or at the central command center without the press and their own security, for the safety of everyone working together regardless career social justifications.

 

Louisiana is about genetic continuation, not society's leaderships salvation.

Trump just posed for a picture or two then left. He should be ashamed.

So should you. you are doing the same thing he did at a separate level of staging societal evolution. You are working the so called bottom up from as your candidate works from the top down..

 

Now top down is physically inside out and bottom up is outside in psychology each position is using a radial perception of the whole moment.. What we have here is spherical results of circle logic working linear perceptions literally, figuratively, and relative to each others divided perception of a space time continuum life had to come from anywhere but here now.

Fore! Obama hits it out of bounds in Louisiana flood response

obama_geek_golf.jpg

The Great Flood of 2016 has devastated 40,000 homes across the state of Louisiana. Sadly, 13 people have lost their lives in this historic storm, which produced up to 31 inches of rainfall in some areas over the course of four days. This is more rainfall than the City of Los Angeles experiences in four years. It was a storm that was so intense that it only happens once every one thousand years.

Emergency officials claim that the Great Flood of 2016 is the worst natural disaster in this country since Hurricane Sandy in 2012. After that storm, President Obama famously met with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to show support for the region.

This time it is a much different scenario. Despite the magnitude of the disaster, President Obama has not visited the region. In fact, he has not even stopped his vacation at Martha’s Vineyard or playing golf. The images of our golf obsessed president enjoying his favorite pastime while his fellow citizens are in such pain is quite troubling to say the least.

Over the course of almost two terms, Obama has played more than 300 rounds of golf. This compares to President George W. Bush who played only two dozen rounds of golf during his two terms in office. In 2005, Bush was roundly criticized for his tardy response to the disastrous Hurricane Katrina. No one can forget the images of Bush looking out of the window of Air Force One at the devastation below. However, at least he flew over the region and eventually visited the area multiple times before the end of his presidency. In contrast, Obama has not even ended his expensive vacation and his golfing with Hollywood stars.

The media crucified Bush for his delayed response in 2005, but are giving Obama a pass this year. Even Democrat Governor of Louisiana John Bel Edwards had to cover for Obama maintaining in an interview on MSNBC that he did not want a presidential visit at this time. He claimed it would divert resources that were needed for the recovery. However, back in 2005, during an even worse disaster, no one came to Bush’s defense. He was pilloried mercilessly for not immediately visiting the New Orleans area.

An Obama visit would have been helpful because it would have highlighted the needs of the region. This area has suffered a tremendous blow considering that so many of the victims did not have flood insurance as their houses had never flooded before. Unlike so many of the victims of Hurricane Katrina, the victims of this disaster live in areas that are above sea level and are not considered flood zones.

 

At least Donald Trump and Mike Pence visited Louisiana, showing leadership and concern and giving the thousands of victims some much-needed attention. Even with the incredible magnitude of the disaster the national media has moved on from the Louisiana flood and the story is not generating headlines any longer. With Trump and his running mate in the state, it guarantees that the plight of the many victims of this horrible natural disaster will receive more media coverage.

Trump’s visit will also spur more donations to the agencies that are providing vital resources to the many thousands of victims who need help. By expressing his sympathy and personal concern, he is also giving a boost to people who have lost everything and are in tremendous pain. He is also acting presidential, a trait that has been in short supply for the past eight years.

 

While Trump was on the ground in Louisiana, Hillary Clinton was literally phoning it in, calling the Governor and tweeting a link for donations. She will visit the state next week, as will President Obama, finally. Clearly, Trump shamed both of them into scheduling a trip to Louisiana. It is quite sad that Obama’s first reaction was not to personally visit the region and see the damage in person, but to continue his golfing vacation.

The victims of this horrific storm deserved the full attention of their president, instead they received visits from his underlings and saw images of Barack Obama riding around in a golf cart while their homes were literally under water. This whole episode has brought back painful memories of Obama’s pitifully slow response to the BP oil spill disaster in 2010.

 

how many times and ways are you going to regurgitate this bullshit?

 

President Barack Obama has come under fire for declining to cut his summer vacation short to travel to flood-ravaged Louisiana, but the state’s governor said a presidential visit at this time would only cause more headaches for officials.

“It is a major ordeal, they free up the interstate for him,” Gov. John Bel Edwards (D) told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow on Thursday. “We have to take hundreds of local first responders, police officers, sheriffs, deputies and state troopers to provide security for that type of visit.”

“I would just as soon have those people engaged in the response rather than trying to secure the president,” Bel Edwards continued. “So I’d ask him to wait, if he would, another couple weeks.”

Trump kicked Obama and Hillary's ass, showing up with a semi full of food and water. Now Obama has had to announce he's going down Tuesday.

The Governor has admitted he was wrong and it was good that Trump came down.

Former Senator Landrieu has thanked Trump for going.

 

Obama sent a memo telling Louisiana not to discriminate.

Drumpf is a cretin that exists beneath human empathy. He's incapable of feeling ashamed, as he doesn't know what it means.

 

And his minions like Golfboy are also shameless trying to insinuate that Obama should be in Louisiana before the governor is ready for him.

And that the governor personally requested Obama to wait for a more prudent time, rather than disrupt rescue and repair efforts. Goofy isn't even almost intellectually capable of comprehending this. He's just a knee-jerk right winger.

Golfboy is a shameless, desperate shill for the Republicans and now for the orange baboon.

When Trump, his large entourage, and Secret Service Protection went to Louisiana to film Trump handing out small boxes of toys he "donated" for a total of 49 seconds before he quit the task. TOYS. The man not only has no idea what people need in a natural disaster, he has no advisor close that can tell him, and he obviously doesn't want to know. What will the people flooded out of homes and businesses do with a tiny box of toys!! Rather than give a Million to the Red Cross that would actually help, Trump instead made it all about him.

Just like he always does.

 

And Trump's colon thinks that's " acting presidential."

Lmao

Liberals can't deal with the fact that Trump actually went to Louisiana and embarrassed Obama and Clinton into going.

Trump was thanked by the governor, lt. governor and ex-senator Landreau for coming and bringing exposing the problems there nationally.

 

Oh, and he donated $100,000 of his own money.

 

Will Obama or Hillary do ANY of that?

Oh look, ES is ridiculing someone giving to flood victims.

 

Ridicule is a lie-brals way of saying, "I got nothing."

 

So tell me, ES, is the Clinton Foundation going to send help to LA, or will the money disappear like it did with the Hatians?

Donald Trumps $100,000 donation to Louisiana flood victims went to a local anti-gay hate group

 

http://www.dailynewsbin.com/news/donald-trumps-donation-to-louisiana-flood-victims-actually-went-to-an-anti-gay-hate-group/25798/

 

 

Trumps six figure donation actually went to a group called the Greenwell Springs Baptist Church, which is a local front for interim pastor Tony Perkins, the head of the Family Research Council a notorious anti LGBT entity disguised as a family values group and now disguised as a church. Perkins lost his home in the flood, a story which garnered significant headlines for its irony after so many anti-gay pastors had previously claimed that Hurricane Katrina had hit Louisiana as part of Gods wrath against gay people.
