DOING OBAMA’S JOB: Trump To Visit Louisiana Food Victims On Friday (Video)

While President Obama is enjoying another family vacation at Martha’s Vineyard playing golf, Donald Trump and Mike Pence are in Baton Rouge, Louisiana meeting victims of the flooding that has killed 13 and forced 30,000 Louisianans to leave their homes. 

Hillary Clinton is ‘closely monitoring’ the situation while continuing her campaign trail bashing Trump.

Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway on Friday called the visit of the Republican nominee and running mate Gov. Mike Pence “presidential” and “a decidedly nonpolitical event, no press allowed, going to help people on the ground who are in need.”

According to The American Mirror , a rally previously scheduled in Dimondale, Michigan was moved from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm in an apparent attempt to accommodate the change.

“I would like to take a moment to talk about the heart break and devastation in Louisiana, a state that is very, very special to me. We are one nation. When one state hurts, we all hurt. And we must all work together to lift each other up,” Trump told Charlotte, North Carolina rally attendees today, the Washington Examiner reports.

“Though words cannot express the sadness one feels at times like, this I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours.”

In contrast, President Obama has ignored calls to end his island vacation early to visit the victims.

Louisiana’s The Advocate opined:

But a disaster this big begs for the personal presence of the president at ground zero. In coming here, the president can decisively demonstrate that Louisiana’s recovery is a priority for his administration – and the United States of America.

The president’s vacation is scheduled to wrap up on Sunday. But he should pack his bags now, and pay a call on communities who need to know that in a national catastrophe, they are not alone.

The president’s presence is already late to this crisis, but it’s better later than never.

CBS reporter Mark Knoller notes Obama isn’t giving into calls to go to Louisiana:

Nevermind he’s played 9 rounds of golf already:
