2016 Election, Elections, Hillary Clinton

Hillary’s lame excuse for not visiting Louisiana


Hillary-Clinton4LaughRepublican presidential nominee Donald Trump visited flood-ravaged Louisiana on Friday. After much criticism, the White House finally announced that Barack Obama will visit the Pelican State on Tuesday. However, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton still refuses to make the trip south — and her excuse is laughable (bolding mine):

This month’s floods in Louisiana are a crisis that demand a national response. More than 30,000 people have been rescued by the Coast Guard, National Guard, and other emergency responders. Thousands of people have lost everything. At least 13 lost their lives. We must make sure that all resources are brought to bear in responding to the crisis and helping communities rebuild.

That is why I have called on supporters of this campaign to give what they can to the Red Cross at rdcrss.org/2aYiT5W, to bring much-needed aid and supplies to the more than 100,000 people affected by the floods. We also need to make sure that this crisis is not compounded by another, by ensuring mosquito abatement is happening hand-in-hand with flood response, to reduce the risk of mosquitoes that could carry the Zika virus from gaining a foothold in Louisiana.

The best way to help Louisianans affected by these terrible floods is to make sure they have the resources they need today. I am committed to visiting communities affected by these floods, at a time when the presence of a political campaign will not disrupt the response, to discuss how we can and will rebuild together.

In times of crisis, Americans have always come together to lift each other up, support each other, and rebuild stronger and better than before. That is what we must do now in Louisiana, and I am committed to standing with Louisianans every step of the way.

In other words, Clinton doesn’t want to visit because she thinks she’ll be too much of a distraction to the relief effort. And we thought Obama was a narcissist.

    Did you ever hear such garbage, The other day she flew 20 miles in a jet. Jet lag would have been a good excuse. EVIL EVIL EVIL.

      JET LAG lol, gotta love it.

  • yellowjacket2

    The only surprise here is that she didn’t tell everyone to send their donations to the Clinton Foundation. In the immortal words of the slickmister, as he wipes a tear away; I feel your pain.

  • Clete Tacker

    It didn’t involve or affect her personally and there was no financial gain for her, did anyone expect her to care. VOTE AGAINST SHILLARY IN NOVEMBER.

    • georgewrentmore

      SHE DIDN’T GO……..FEELS THAT SHE’S AHEAD IN THE POLLS……..watch her get dumped

    • islanddean

      No financial gain yet Clete. She’s waiting until they start talking about rebuilding so she can be at the forefront collecting donations for the clington confoundation.

    Shameless, pitiful, callous response only Killery could give.


    I’m definitely not a Hillary supporter but I will have to concede to her campaign’s excuse in this case ! Those unfortunate people don’t need any more outside distractions slowing their recovery efforts !

  • georgewrentmore

    I really think she eats her own bullshit

  • Janis Tobin

    Hillary can’t connect these dots and by the way, where is the money and support from the Clinton Foundation????

  • Loretta

    Better than her visiting why doesn’t she donate some money from the Clintin Foundation. there surly is need in Louisanna.

  • cajungirl_br

    I think she was afraid she might be asked to donate from CGI. The charity money could certainly rebuild the damage. Just so you Louisianans know( lawd knows you’ve been busy) she’s been out here in California hobnobbing with the stars.
