As Texas reels from a historically destructive hurricane, Americans from all parts of the political spectrum are coming together to help the victims and begin the long process of rebuilding. President Trump has offered precious little leadership during this trying time, preferring instead to send out his trademark inane tweets.
Today, as Texas sifts through the wreckage of Hurricane Harvey, Trump’s team sent out an email asking for campaign donations. Rather than directing his base to donate to relief efforts, he’s instead begging them to prop up his 2020 reelection efforts.

The email is insensitive and demonstrates how little Trump really cares about the people of Texas. The tacky insults and the parting shot at “Hollywood and the media” are classic lowbrow Trump tactics. He’s a crude man who never should have set foot inside the Oval Office.
