“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” ― Charles Dickens
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. — Galatians 6:9
Where is Obama?
While Obama plays his umpteenth round of golf, the nation suffers, especially the State of Louisiana where flooding has caused 13 deaths, wrecked 40,000 homes, and affected more than 100,000 residents. These survivors are now homeless. Louisiana felt the horrible flooding was being totally ignored by the rest of the nation, and they were right.
Aid workers were there helping, and a word from the President would have helped too.
The leader of the free world didn’t care. Golfing in Martha’s Vineyard was more important to him than helping the people in Louisiana.
Despite mounting pressure, the White House said Obama was unlikely to break from a New England vacation to survey the damage in Louisiana. In an editorial published Wednesday, The Advocate newspaper in Baton Rouge called on Obama to visit “the most anguished state in the union.”
Where is Hillary?
Hillary Clinton didn’t care, she is too busy taking days off to rest and nap. She’s probably thinking, “At this point, what difference does it make?”
Clinton called Gov. John Bel Edwards to discuss the relief effort, and posted on Facebook that her “heart breaks for Louisiana.” Really Hillary? You have over $100 million and you couldn’t be bothered to send some funds or go to help the people of Louisiana? She said that visiting the state amid the damage and ongoing relief effort would be a “distraction.” Yes, a distraction from her rest time.
Where is Donald Trump?
He and Mike Pence were there in Louisiana. They met with Franklin Graham of Samaritan’s Purse and talked to the people who need help.
Behind the scenes, Trump met with several families and told them to stay strong, that they would rebuild. But what none of them even knew was that Trump had sent an 18-wheeler loaded with supplies to the devastated area, and it was being unloaded without anyone knowing about it until CNN found out and reported it … but just once.
You can see in the video below that Mr. Trump had sent supplies which were desperately needed.
It’s not the money folks, because Obama and the Clintons both have enough money that they could have done the exact same thing and sent an 18 wheeler full of supplies. But they didn’t even think about it. As president of this country, wouldn’t you think Obama should have gone immediately to Louisiana? As candidate for President, wouldn’t you think Hillary would have shown up?
Had Obama or Hillary sent supplies for the people, the photo-op would be spectacular, but not with Trump. Everything he did was done silently.
As for me and mine, this is the kind of man I want in our White House as President of the United States.
