After this morning’s Presidential press conference with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Donald Trump went outdoors to address the hurricane victims waiting outside to hear from the ostensible leader of this nation – and for the second time in an hour, made it immediately about himself.

That’s right. President Trump thanked a crowd of hurricane victims for “turning out” and congratulated them on the size of the crowd that showed up to see the leader of the United States.
In remarks devoid of anything substantial beyond his usual hyperbole and wild promises that the recovery would be so tremendous things would be better than they were before, the President made sure to remark on how big a crowd was there for him at a firehouse during a hurricane, eternally focused on himself rather than the people he’s supposed to represent.
