Donald Trump cared enough to visit the flood victims of Louisiana while President Obama played golf on Martha’s Vineyard and Hillary rested. Even the liberal press knows how bad this looked for Obama and Hillary.
Matt Lauer of the Today Show even asked Democrat operative James Carville about it.
Matt Lauer Worries Trump Looks ‘More Presidential’ Than Obama or Hillary
Talking to longtime Democratic strategist and Clinton operative James Carville on Monday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer fretted that Donald Trump visiting the flood zone in Louisiana could give him an edge in the presidential race: “He goes down there, looks at the damage first hand, talks to people, before President Obama. It wasn’t until after his visit that Hillary Clinton picked up the phone, called the governor there. Did he appear more presidential in the wake of that tragedy than Hillary Clinton?”
Carville tried to excuse the absence of the Democratic leaders: “I think the timeline is, is that she and the Governor spoke. The Governor has said that he would prefer that people come later because they have – particularly the President comes.”

The fact is, Trump did look more presidential than Obama or Hillary.
