The Difference Between Obama’s And Trump’s Response To The Hurricane Says It All

As Texas struggles to regain its footing after being decimated by Hurricane Harvey, both Trump and former President Barack Obama took to Twitter to address a weary nation in need of a unifying voice.

Obama responded to the tragedy by recognizing those who have helped each other, and went a step further in posting his own call to action, imploring other Americans to pitch in and do their part in the recovery effort by linking to the American Red Cross.

Trump, however, used the opportunity to display his leadership abilities by first promoting a book by the controversial and divisive Sheriff David Clark.

He then used his platform to rile up fear for “the worst storm/hurricane [people] have ever seen.”

Then, in a stunning display of tone-deaf self-adulation, he proceeded to tweet about his “historic” Electoral College victory.

And finally, he took a jab at Mexico and Canada, threatening yet again to build a wall on the Mexican border and terminate NAFTA. It should be noted, too, that many Mexicans, who make up a considerable portion of the Texas population, have been uprooted and are dealing with the devastating consequences of the hurricane.

While our insecure President has made it abundantly clear that his top priority is himself and his vile agenda, America can look to the compassionate words of Barack Obama to restore at least a fleeting sense of dignity to a nation on its knees.
