You have to love this! A Florida man greeted President Trump today with a question that the president told him to ask the press: “Where was Obama on the last hurricane?” Then he answered his own question: “Obama Was Playing Golf During The Last Hurricane”
Remember that? Obama didn’t want to interrupt his vacation to travel to see hurricane survivors…Not one peep from Michelle either. What a difference a presidency makes!
FLASHBACK TO MARTHA’S VINEYARD:
Where was President Obama when the most serious natural disaster happened during his 8 years in office? He was golfing on Martha’s Vineyard, and refused to leave his golfing vacation to assess the situation.
President Obama is stirring resentment over his refusal to interrupt his Martha’s Vineyard vacation to survey the Louisiana flood — the worst U.S. natural disaster since 2012 — while drawing comparisons to President George W. Bush’s hotly criticized response to Hurricane Katrina in the same state.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson defended Mr. Obama at a press conference Thursday, insisting that the president is “closely monitoring” the situation but that he will not cut short his two-week breather in the tony Massachusetts resort.
“The president can’t be everywhere,” Mr. Johnson told reporters in Denham Springs, Louisiana.
Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, backed him up, saying at the press conference that he is “not complaining in any way about our federal partnership.”
Even so, Mr. Obama’s lack of urgency is drawing unflattering parallels to the federal response in 2005, when Mr. Bush was branded as uncaring and even racist for not touching down during a flyover two days after Hurricane Katrina. – Washington Times
