Louisiana is suffering through one of the worst natural disasters ever, with 13 dead and 40,000 homes destroyed. But Obama was on vacation, golfing with Larry David, among others, so he couldn’t be bothered with the suffering people of Louisiana. Meanwhile, Donald Trump and Mike Pence went to the flood ravaged state, acting very Presidential while they helped flood victims. Trump not only donated an 18 wheeler filled with food and supplies, he and Pence helped unload the truck, making sure the people received what they needed most. The people of Louisiana were VERY appreciative.
So what was President Obama’s response to the devastation in Louisiana? He sent the victims a 16 page lecture on how they should behave during this calamity while he continued to play golf on Martha’s Vineyard. From the Federalist papers,
The Washington Times reported that the Obama Department of Justice sent a 16-page guidance to Louisiana residents on Tuesday who are receiving federal disaster assistance, warning them not to engage in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).”
The memo states that the guidance’s frameworks “highlight the importance of complying with nondiscrimination requirements of civil rights statutes, addressing the needs of the whole community, and ensuring equal opportunity to access recovery efforts.”
Seriously? This is the President’s response to these suffering people? A lecture? Disgusting.
Over the course of the last week people in Louisiana have begged the President to come to Louisiana and see the devastation first hand. The President was able to take a break from his vacation to go to a very expensive fundraiser for Hillary but he couldn’t take a few hours to visit those suffering in Louisiana. Obama couldn’t have made it more clear how little he cares for the people in the flooded area.
The people of Louisiana are glad the President has finally decided to visit the state now that his vacation is over. Better late than never?
