The headline TRUMP IN TEXAS: “WHAT A CROWD, WHAT A TURNOUT” gave the Trump haters all they needed to begin the mass hysteria.
1. They slammed him for treating a disaster like a campaign rally.
2. They slammed him for wearing a white USA cap, which they called a campaign hat.
3. They slammed him for what they call environmental damage caused by Air Force One going to Texas.
4. They slammed the First Lady for wearing high heels.
The left is having a collective nervous breakdown for which there is no cure. Sad!
President Donald Trump, addressing a crowd of people who had gathered outside a firehouse where he met with local officials in Corpus Christi, Texas, remarked on the size of the crowd as if he were at a rally.
“Thank you everybody,” Trump said as he waived. He told people the response to Harvey’s flooding “is going well.”
Looking over the gathering, he remarked: “What a crowd, what a turnout,” according to video of the remarks.
The crowd could be heard cheering in the video. But CNN reported not everyone was supportive of the president. The network said a sign held read “You pardoned Joe, what about Jose?” in reference to Trump pardon of former Maricopa (Ariz.) County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
In the meeting with local and state officials earlier, Trump said Harvey’s destruction and flooding was a disaster “of epic proportions.”
“This was of epic proportions. No one has ever seen anything like this,” the president said as he received a briefing on rescue efforts.
Trump also said his administration wants to handle the recovery “better than ever before.”
“We want to be looked at in five years, in 10 years from now as this is the way to do it,” Trump said speaking to reporters. Addressing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, Trump said this is not the time to say congratulations.
“We won’t say congratulations. We don’t wanna do that,” the president said, “we’ll congratulate each other when it’s all finished.”
Trump departed Corpus Christi on Tuesday afternoon and was headed to Austin, Texas, CNN reported.
