Since President Trump deprived the Enslaved Press of the opportunity to complain about his handling of Hurricane Harvey, they had to come up with an alternative narrative.
All the pieces they’d already started writing with headlines like, “Seven Mistakes President Trump Made in his First National Crisis.” Or “Trump has his first big test: Here’s why he failed.” They had to delete all those and start over again with something else to gripe about.
And they found it:
Sure, President Trump was on top of things from the start. And he traveled to Texas promptly. But he didn’t show enough empathy.
You see, President Obama went to tour the damage from Super Storm Sandy and he hugged someone!
But President Trump didn’t do that!
Therefore, his trip to Texas was a failure because he didn’t show empathy.
Give me a break.
