Uhhhh. ... Yep. So why are you making a big deal?

Perhaps I triggered you?


Just thought it was an odd comment.
I suppose if 'Hitler' doesn't work, it makes sense to move on to 'antichrist'


Perhaps ... Or perhaps you just don't comprehend irony.

Chill.

I guess maybe he was pissed with all the titty bars and tattoos from the aid given out?


Don't forget the Play-Doh ....

Be honest, nobody gave a second thought about Louisiana until Trump got on the scene. The fact that we are talking about this on ATS right now should be an indication.


Yes, that is my point. We are not talking about LA and what they are going through. We are talking about Trump.

Same thing would happen if/when Obama/Hillary show up.

It's not about LA...it's about the politician.




I get what your saying but at the same time people need to know their leaders care. By the same logic news crews shouldn't go there and just send money. Volunteers should stay away because it costs to travel there.

People need to see and feel strength in a time of weakness. Those in power, for whatever reason, project that.


People don't care if their leaders give a #. They care about their house being underwater and how they are going to work.

This political nonsense is just another expense they have are burdened to pay for. It's bull#.


I saw hundreds of people who seemed to care and heard many comments about how much they cared.


Hundreds? Well, that doesn't mean much when there are just a few more people than that whom are affected.

Trump DONATED 70,000 LBS of supplies to flood victims; MSM silent.


Perfect photo OP! Here's the video. He made sure to spend 49 seconds roughly pretending to roll up his sleeves and unload a truck for the cameras. (I mean, you didn't really believe Donald Trump was unloading a truck for real did you?) The whole thing is staged and staged horribly. Obviously none of you are in logistics. They couldn't find a dock door to back this thing into? Nobody in their right mind unloads a trailer from the ground like this.

video here

Strangely this appears to be toys? Not that toys aren't great. Kids lost toys and receiving toys I'm sure will bring a smile to their faces. It's just curious. Not to nitpick but since the Tweet includes "70,000 lbs" as though that's supposed to be impressive:

I'm actually in the industry. The 70,000 lbs is the weight of a the truck and trailer + supplies. The actual weight of the load would likely be oh... I dunno depending on the weight of the truck and trailer, 42,000 lbs or so. A full load of prime rib (the most expensive stuff we generally transport) runs about $250,000. This is probably worth 1/10th of that per lb.

Worth every penny in publicity.

OK, so not all people. Gotcha.
I guess we don't know how many actually care.

Of course that's what it is. To pretend otherwise is delusional.

If Obama or Hillary went there, it would be for publicity purposes.

Why we think it's different for Trump is beyond me.

No, it doesn't.



Under U.S. Code, the president does have the statutory authority to keep anyone out of the country, for any reason he thinks best. Per 8 USC §1182

“Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”


That is not in violation of the constitution.

And your emotional handwringing doesn't change that.

Some of us still believe that people do good deeds. I would hate to think otherwise honestly.

It's rare to see a politician really get in there and do something. The only one I can think of off the top of my hand is Corey Booker (I'm in NJ) and in many many situations I've seen on local news, he was out there in the snow, in the rain and winds, out in the streets leading by example and actually putting in work.

Corey Booker imo would have been an excellent candidate for President.

Good deeds do not need the attention of the camera lens. If you are looking for good deeds, I'd bet you should look at those that did not show up with a media crew.

I'm not so cynical that I don't believe that people do good things without ulterior motives (most people do them for all the right reasons in fact) but I'm not so oblivious that I don't know a stunt when I see one and this is clearly a stunt.

What do you call it when he strolls up, pretends to help unload the truck so that pictures can be taken and then walks back to his plane and flies away?

Notice that all the links people are posting prominently feature photos of him pretending to help unload the truck for a few seconds? That ain't no accident my friend.

Trump helped. Nothing is gained by promoting not helping to our politicians.

Is it pandering for votes? So what? It was still a net gain for all involved. Can we focus on the things that actually hurt people? There's a lot of them, Trump certainly isn't lacking for such.

This just isn't one of them. Personally I'd love it if politicians went all over the nation helping people to build up support rather than finding what mud they can sling at their opponents wouldn't you?

I say we need to encourage this on all sides.

Can you imagine if politicians competed to see who could help the most people, # ya! Now that's the kind of pandering for votes I want to see.

That's the dead give away on how well Trump's effort for Louisiana has gone down with the people there and across the country.

One truck is a publicity stunt- pure and simple.

Let's see what Trump Pense does to make a real difference ... Which would be supporting the massive Federal expenditures that will make a difference in the real long term.

I'm willing to wait.

Let's step back in time...

web.archive.org...://www.hillaryclinton.com/files/audio/HRCscinv.mp3

It was ok back then to rip the GOP candidate due to his response to Katrina, now it's ok to pull a 180 and rip on the current GOP candidate for actually showing up?

Bizarro world...


 


it's a wayback link that give's me fits.... I think you can see the address if you quote my post... rassin frassin


 


Found a transcript of the radio ad for those who couldn't listen..


www.gwu.edu...

(Male )Announcer: Hillary Clinton has spent her life standing up for people others don’t see.

Clinton: Too many Americans today feel as though they are invisible... If you are a child in a crumbling school along the Corridor of Shame, you ARE invisible to this president.

Announcer: Thirty-five years as a tireless advocate for children and families…

Clinton: If you’re a mother without health care, a father without a job, a family that can’t get by on the minimum wage... you’re invisible as well.

Announcer: Time and again, Hillary Clinton has stood up to President Bush…stood up for us.

Clinton: And if you’re stuck on a rooftop or stranded in the Superdome during a hurricane you’re invisible to this president even when you’re on CNN. [applause]

Well, you are not invisible to me, and you should never be invisible to the president of the United States.

Announcer: Hillary Clinton. If you’re ready for change. She’s ready to lead. Paid for by Hillary Clinton for President.

Clinton: I’m Hillary Clinton and I approve this message.
