How quickly these Trump-haters forget about the last time a major hurricane hit Louisiana and former President Obama refused to stop playing golf to visit the victims.
Here’s an excerpt from the Advocate, a Louisiana paper on Barack Obama’s disappearing act following the Louisiana floods:
Our Views: Vacation or not, a hurting Louisiana needs you now, President Obama
Sometimes, presidential visits can get in the way of emergency response, doing more harm than good. But we don’t see that as a factor now that flood waters are subsiding, even if at an agonizing pace. It’s past time for the president to pay a personal visit, showing his solidarity with suffering Americans.
And if the president can interrupt his vacation for a swanky fundraiser for fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton, as he did on Monday, then surely he can make time to show up for a catastrophe that’s displaced thousands.

But after his second visit to the flood ravaged Texas, President Trump’s critics just can’t find it in their hate-filled little hearts to give him the credit he deserves for being present and laser focused on helping the flood victims recover.
Meanwhile, MSNBC reporter Garrett Haake took a beating on Twitter today after he dared to report about the compassionate side of President Trump, who the public never sees. In his tweet, Garrett Haake remarked on pictures of President Trump that show a side of him that Haake compared to a “Grandpa, who public never sees.”
These pictures of @realDonaldTrump with children at a Houston shelter are fascinating. This is Trump the Grandpa, who public never sees.

It wasn’t long before members of his own team turned on him. Some of them even called for him to be fired. Haake had to know that whenever a reporter dares to say something positive about our President, they will pay a heavy price with either their peers and/or their readers.
Here are some of the vile responses Haake got in response to his tweet:
Of course, you can’t be a real leftist unless you find a way to compare President Donald Trump to Hitler:
You know who *else* was great with grand-kids? pic.twitter.com/zA2VC0Cw2x

To which we responded:
When you only have 201 followers, but suddenly become popular with leftists for posting pictures of Hitler. ????

Who exactly, do these leftists think are telling or “forcing” Donald Trump to “act” a certain way?
So predictable. He's being forced to act human, and the media eats it up. SAD!

Sorry to be cynical but this is Trump doing what he *had* to do bc the joke of his first visit. Trump is doing what he's being told to do.

Haake responded to his critics, by trying to explain why he dared to compliment our President :
Literally everything any president does in any disaster area is a photo op. I was only noting how different this one was vs. daily Trump.

God forbid the media “normalize” President Trump”. If we didn’t know better, we’d almost believe there was a serious effort to de-normalize President Trump by the Left.
Puh-please. Stop this normalizing.

This follower is convinced, President trump and the thousands of people who showed up to see him are only people who are part of his base. Maybe they haven’t seen the results of the election, but Houston voters went for Hillary over President Trump. Sorry [email protected], but those are likely Hillary voters who are happy to see a president who cares enough about them to make 2 trips to Texas since the floods turned their lives upside down.
The only people he fools with this photo op are his base. The rest of us know he's doesn't like people or children.

Ani Sangye’s response was classic liberal, “Trump would sexually assault those girls when they grow up.” She must’ve been living in another country when Bill Clinton was impeached for lying to a grand jury about having sex in the Oval Office with a 19-yr old intern:
Trump would sexually assault those girls when they grow up.

LOL! And then there’s the leftist who threatens to “unfollow” anyone who doesn’t tow the liberal line:
Unfollowing you for the stupidity of this retweet. There's no evidence he was a good father or husband AND he's ONLY there for rescue PR
— LarsManwaring (Man·er·ing) (@LManwaring) September 2, 2017
What kind of attack on someone with whom a liberal disagrees, would be complete without mentioning FOX News? Ouch!
It appears that through it all, Haake maintained a good sense of humor, as he ended his commentary with this tweet:
This tweet has elicited responses comparing Trump to Hitler, Stalin and Satan, and several calling for me to be fired. Thanks everyone.
