Granted, it’s been a few years, so if anyone needs a reminder how a real president responds to natural disasters, such as hurricanes, please refer to the photo that accompanies this article.
You will find President Barack Obama famously helping in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. He’s standing with the governor of the affected state (and of the opposing political party, no less!), working seriously to meet the needs of those who live where the storm hit.
Both practically and emotionally, he helped victims–and the nation as a whole–heal and feel better.
Then, there’s this other guy.
This is the guy whose entire response to one storm involved how to get three-point shots out of roll after roll of paper towels.
So, with the monster known as Hurricane Dorian now threatening Florida and the rest of the Southeastern US coast, is Donald Trump closeted away in the Oval Office with advisers?
Is he in wall-to-wall meetings with FEMA and state leaders?
Okay, you can stop laughing now. But no. He’s been keeping up with his golf game. But, nothing to worry about, he’s got this disaster thing, too.
“We got updates while I was there,” Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) said of hanging around with Trump at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland. “Got updates, I know he played golf yesterday and got updates while he was going golf.”
Floridians and Americans, you can rest easy, right? Right???
