The narcissistic President of the United States doesn’t get the headlines from ‘real news outlets’, and it gnaws at his insides.
Texas comes before Trump no matter what is going on but, you can be sure he is far from the heart, and spirit of Texans in distress.
He probably doesn’t understand people helping people regardless of whether or not their backgrounds appeal to the Trump palette.
Trump is a passing headline; Texas is not. Texans do not have the heart to look in to backgrounds during this crisis. What they do know is, ‘we are people, and we will help other people in a crisis.’
Trump’s arrival in Texas was another one of Trump’s cancerous ‘hey look at how many people turned out to see me!’ campaign stops. It was a congratulatory stop as he did tell the Texas governor that they could congratulate each other in the near future.
It was all about how well Trump would be handling the Texas crisis. ‘Better than any other similar crisis has ever been handled in U.S. history.’ This would be epic.
He did lead a pep rally attesting to the strength of Texans.
He wore a “USA” hat that is for sale on the Trump web site. As far as the President was concerned, Texas was a photo-op for him, and his wife. While we’re at it, why not a little business with pleasure?
Texans are people, and at times like this, still need a ‘presidential President’ surpassing a pep rally.
Did the President reassure the nation of anything? Did the President show any empathy? Did he get wet? Did he meet with any evacuees? Did he show up at any shelters? What about Police Officer, Sgt. Steven Perez who insisted on getting to work to help those in need but, drowned en route? Nothing from this fake President.
Nothing, until it’s too late, and the educated Trump tries to read from a teleprompter.
What the heck was he doing there except to admire the ‘big’ crowd showing up to see him, and looking for some admiration without doing anything for anybody in Texas.
Again, he was not Presidential but, what else is new? If nothing else, Donald Trump was in the way. Get the hell out of Texas!
Trump plans to return to Texas, and will appear to be Presidential because someone like John Kelly will inform him of his miscues.
You’ll still see the same, ‘I don’t really care because I honestly do not know how to care. ‘ The President acting like a ‘fake President for ‘real’ News which will find the President, a day late, and too many dollars short.
There is no lawless sheriff checking identification. Only people rescuing their neighbors.
Just like the first, and subsequent responders, I don’t care if you’re Black, White, Asian, Latino, Jewish, Christian, Buddhist or anything else because nobody’s asking questions. They’re just doing what good people do for others in this kind of situation. This is what explains American Community to people like the President.
The President has no idea how to identify with an empathetic community. It is hard to understand but, narcissism is an illness. This is the illness that seems to plague the President.
The responsible real public press is doing their very best at keeping us up to date with the moment to moment coverage of the ‘real news.’
On to Missouri, the President made another campaign stop with Texas as just a memory, Trump made no mention of Texas continuing in a suffering mode. Not an ounce of empathy for these people because it just isn’t there.
Hurricane Harvey was downgraded to a tropical storm moving off land but, trailed right back to land mass over Texas, and Louisiana dropping more rain.
We must let these people know that we care. This whole country is concerned for those enduring through this event, and so very sorry for their losses.
This is even harder to write as I continue watching the live video unveiled on TV as the crisis is far from over.
Trump continues to treat this crisis as if it was merely a reality tv show ‘series’ no different from the one he used to host.
I’ve done my very small part to the best of my ability with a contribution to the American Red Cross.
Another read on Harvey.
