The media covering for Obama while he VACATIONS on Martha’s Vineyard only a decade after they excoriated Bush for his slow response to reach “the ground” with the victims of Hurricane Katrina is unconscionable…
On August 12, 2016, prolonged rainfall in southern Louisiana resulted in catastrophic flooding that submerged thousands of houses and businesses. Louisiana’s governor, John Bel Edwards, called the disaster a “historic, unprecedented flooding event” and declared a state of emergency. Many rivers and waterways, particularly the Amite and Comite rivers, reached record levels and rainfall exceeded 20 inches (510 mm) in multiple parishes.
Because of the large number of homeowners without flood insurance that were affected, the federal government is helping with the response through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The flood has been called the worst US natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
On day 2 of the LA disaster, Obama sent this tweet out to his followers:
— President Obama (@POTUS) August 14, 2015
“We can talk about a President who only saw the people from a window of an airplane, as opposed to down here on the ground”
Who can forget the spokesperson for Black American youth, big mouth racist rapper, Kanye West’s comments about George W. Bush? So far, he hasn’t commented on Obama’s absence following the historic flooding in LA:
Watch Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson tell press Obama hasn’t visited Louisiana flood victims yet because, “he has a busy schedule”! Seriously?

Meanwhile, Obama kicked off his annual vacation to the Massachusetts island last week by playing his 300th round of golf as president. As Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering noted, former President George W. Bush played 24 rounds of golf over his two terms, while former President Woodrow Wilson played a record 1,200 rounds during his presidency.
Obama has faced criticism in the past over the timing of his golf outings.
On Thursday, Louisiana newspaper The Advocate called for Obama to cut his vacation short as widespread flooding has killed thirteen people and displaced tens of thousands more in what the Red Cross has called the worst natural disaster since Hurricane Sandy in 2012. –Breitbart
