What I find disgusting is that during this tragedy with so many good humanitarian stories taking place, that Democrats and the mainstream media choose to attempt to divide our country through trashing President Trump and Melania. It started with Melania's shoes as she left the White House to travel to Texas. People were dying in the flood zone and the press is busy attacking her for her footwear. She wasn't walking around in high heel shoes when she arrived in Houston she was wearing tennis shoes but regardless, it was ridiculous to receive the coverage it did. On the day the New York Times covered it, it was the most clicked on article on their website. No wonder their readers overwhelmingly vote Democrat. I wish they cared more about the articles on our economy.
Now they're attacking Trump for not showing the level of empathy that they deemed appropriate. There were still major evacuations underway so his trip was about meeting with the emergency response teams and reassuring them they'd have the necessary resources from the Federal Government to do what they needed to do during the flooding and down the road as they rebuild.
I've been through a terrible tornado and I made it through Hurricane Hugo. My concern was finding food and water and getting our electricity back; a hug from the President wouldn't have been any help to me. President Obama hugged Governor Christie for a nice photo-op but it certainly didn't help relief efforts for the citizens of New Jersey because it ended up being a fiasco.
Trump went in as the Chief Executive Officer and prioritized their needs. He and Melania are back in Houston today to talk to the victims who are now safely in shelters to show their support. This way they won't have interfered with the recovery efforts. But this isn't good enough. Now I'm hearing the mainstream media say he's only doing this because they forced him to. Think about this. Why in the world would they say this? Why do they find it so necessary to divide our country at a time where people are coming together regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.? If you look up the definition for "Treason" it includes harming one's country and/or attempting to overthrow the government. Are Democrats reaching this point?
It amazes me in times like these how all the junk we get caught up in like gender and race issues, that everyone throws all of that aside and becomes one. I saw white men in ball caps (what some liberals call rednecks), pulling an African American family out of the water. They ended up holding hands and hugging each other. I saw an African American man on a jet ski, taking an older woman out of her flooded house and she was holding on to him as they sped off. Race was thrown out the window while everyone worked together to help each other.
If you really think about it, the fact that we do talk about issues like Micro Aggression and Safe Spaces, goes to show how blessed we are to live in the U.S. While most countries in the world are dealing with issues like food, housing, and access to clean water, we have young adults protesting and rioting because of perceived unfairness in our society. Most of these young people have a place to stay and certainly plenty of food and water. It's time to count our blessings that our issues are so minor compared to the rest of the world.
