Unlike President Barack Hussein Obama, who continues to vacation in Martha’s Vineyard as if nothing was happening, GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump cares.
He cares about the tens of thousands of Louisiana residents who have had their homes snatched away from them because of some of the worst floods to have hit that area since those spawned by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
He cares so much, in fact, that he and his running mate, Mike Pence, intended to visit Baton Rouge on Friday to tour the area and speak with affected families, according to Fox News.
Trump also mentioned the victims during a Thursday evening rally in Charlotte, North Carolina.
“Though words cannot express the sadness one feels at times like this, I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours,” he said.
Whereas Obama has said nothing, though he sang an entirely different tune during his first run for the presidency, when he slammed then-President George W. Bush for not caring enough about Katrina victims.

“We can talk about levees that couldn’t hold, a FEMA that seemed not just incompetent but paralyzed and powerless, about a president who only saw the people from the window of an airplane instead of down here on the ground,” he said at the time, according to the Washington Examiner.
Never mind the fact that this very same man refuses to do even that, lest his vacation be interrupted. What a disgrace — one whom even some in the liberal media have begun seeing for his true colors.
“The president’s vacation is scheduled to wrap up on Sunday,” wrote the liberal editorial board at The (Baton Rouge) Advocate. “But he should pack his bags now, and pay a call on communities who need to know that in a national catastrophe, they are not alone. The president’s presence is already late to this crisis, but it’s better later than never.”
Will he listen, though? Of course not. Thus it rests on true leaders like Donald J. Trump to do his job for him ascontinues golfing in Martha’s Vineyard.
Just like it always has.
