Last week, Barack Hussein Obama disrespected the people of Louisiana when he refused to cut short his multi-million dollar vacation to Martha’s Vineyard to be with them after the flood that left 13 dead and thousands homeless in their state.
On Tuesday, Obama finally visited the ravaged city of Baton Rouge, but many felt his three hour visit was too little, too late.
According to Western Journalism, Obama begrudgingly spent a brief three hours touring a small portion of the damage before he rushed back to Washington D.C. Donald Trump, who rushed to Louisiana last Friday immediately after the flood, slammed Obama’s visit for being far “too late.”
“Tuesday’s too late,” said Trump, who also donated an 18-wheeler full of supplies to the state. “Hop into the plane and go down and go to Louisiana and see what’s going on, because it’s a mess.”
Trump continued to criticize Trump on Twitter.
President Obama should have gone to Louisiana days ago, instead of golfing. Too little, too late!

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest got defensive when he was asked on Monday whether Obama was shamed into visiting Louisiana by Trump.
“Of course not,” he responded. “The president has been focused on the response and not, frankly, as concerned with the optics, as all of you appear to be.”
