Trump-Pence Head To Flood Devastated Baton Rouge – Meanwhile Obama Golfs, Hillary Sleeps…

The ‘America-First’ Compassion Ticket Heads To Louisiana

trump pence chopper 2Campaigning in North Carolina today, candidate Donald Trump began his campaign remarks by speaking about the horrific devastation in Louisiana:

[…] We are one nation. When one state hurts, we all hurt – and we must all work together to lift each other up. Working, building, restoring together.

Our prayers are with the families who have lost loved ones, and we send them our deepest condolences. 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.

Candidate Trump’s comments followed a campaign announcement that Donald Trump and Governor Mike Pence will travel to Baton Rouge Louisiana tomorrow morning to see first-hand the worst national disaster since Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

The latest stats show 30,000 people were rescued from the floods; 40,000 people have lost their homes; and 13 people were killed by the flood waters.

(Via Fox News) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence will visit flood-damaged areas of Baton Rouge, La. Friday.

Record flooding across Louisiana has killed at least 13 people. Over 85,000 people have registered for federal disaster assistance, more than 30,000 have been rescued, and an estimated 40,000 homes have been damaged.

Trump addressed the flooding at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday night, calling Louisiana “a state that is very, very special to me.”

“Though words cannot express the sadness one feels at times like this,” Trump said, “I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them, and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours.”  (read more)

Meanwhile President Obama is continuing his golf vacation, and Secretary Hillary Clinton has taken the rest of the week off.

      Bad word choice IMO, she should have written ‘takes’, ‘serves’ or ‘performs’ the role of President… Trump is not playing a game, he is in this for everyone, he is the President.
      JMHO FWIW

      • Agreed. And what’s this “brilliant maneuver” crapola? Trump’s been helping those in need for over 20 years. Trump should hire Sundance for writing. Kelly should stay away from KEYBOARDS, she’s not a good writer. IMO.

          Exactly right! The use of “plays” and “brilliant maneuver” really put me off, too! Sounds more like a media critic than a new team leader.

          I haven’t liked her from the get-go. But now he’s stuck with her because she is the first woman at the top of a republican campaign which she so proudly spouted at Hannity. I hope he’ll be able to replace her with someone who has better writing skills…just leave her there but let somebody else do the writing. I sure hope they read here. You commenters at CTH are more savvy than most.

      The third video in that “lifezette” piece has brought tears to my eyes! Hearing the people that were gathered say such things as “We KNEW you’d be here, Mr Trump” and “we lost everything but we knew you’d come”.

      Blessings to Franklin Graham and Samaritans Purse!!
      Never get press (perhaps don’t want it) but they are everywhere there is a need….always.

          “Humility” is the key in his (their) life. Just as The Lord wants it to be.

          What a stark contrast—there is Rev Graham (and others cut from the same cloth doing God’s work) and there’s the “media”. In my mind….good vs evil!!

    Clinton phone call criticizes Trump as distraction.

    Trump is there showing support as a volunteer leader as Baton Rogue calls for need of 40,000 volunteers. The people are grateful and Trump is humble enough to care to be there for them.

      This is a bit from the wash times piece—>

      […] but he did let state and local officials know that he’s watching to make sure they don’t engage in racial discrimination.

      In a 16-page guidance issued Tuesday, the Obama administration, led by the Justice Department, warned Louisiana recipients of federal disaster assistance against engaging in “unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin (including limited English proficiency).”

    • Always poking a stick in someone eye like a playground bully. I feel sorry for him that he is that petty. People come together in an emergency no matter what color, sorry for his race politics.

    “Meanwhile President Obama is continuing his golf vacation, and Secretary Hillary Clinton has taken the rest of the week off.” Well, to quote Hillery, “What difference at this point, does it make?”

      “What difference at this point, does it make?” Hope she is thinking that line in terms campaigning because she knows she has just 2 chances for wining = slim and none. So why even put forth the effort to get out in front of the people. Just kick back with the martinis
