VIDEO: Louisiana Governor Claims Trump Did THIS To His State
Since the figureheads of the left have gotten some bad press for completely neglecting the Louisiana flood victims they have decided to try to fix their public image, not by actually going down and offering their support as Donald Trump did, but rather by setting their lap dog, mainstream media, out to twist words and Slander the Republican presidential nominee.
In order to try to even the playing field the left has been trying to slant the words of Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards in order to make it seem like Trump is just as bad as they are and he is not wanted in Louisiana.
Before Trump made his way to Louisiana Gov. Edwards' office released a statement saying, "We welcome him to Louisiana, but not for a photo-op. Instead we hope he’ll consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of the storm."
He indicated that he did not want Trump to come down for a publicity stunt instead he wanted to see Trump make real efforts to help the thousands of flood victims, which Trump full heartedly did.
Mainstream media saw this as an opportunity to misconstrue Gov. Edwards' words and play it off as if he had said something with the same effect as "Trump is not welcome in Louisiana."
Fortunately Edwards was given a chance to clear up any confusion there may have been about his statement in an interview with CNN.
"I didn’t dismiss his trip as a photo-op. Before he came down, I said we welcome him here, we want him to be helpful. And we hope that it doesn’t turn into a mere photo-op," responded Edwards.
Edwards went on to say that Trump's visit to Louisiana was beneficial for the state as it "helped to shine a spotlight on Louisiana and on the dire situation that we have here, that it was helpful."
Edwards also mentioned how much he appreciated the phone call that he had with Trump's running mate Mike Pence, and that from the call he felt that Pence was sincere and genuine, which is much more than anyone can say about the leftist media attack hound desperately trying to stir up more chaos in the wake of disaster.
What is truly ironic about the entire situation is that the people who say they care the most about these flood victims, many of whom are black, have been called out for doing absolutely nothing to help the people most in need.
Furthermore these same people, the Black Lives Matter organization, did eventually turn up in Louisiana but not offer any aid. Instead they came and made a big public fuss, a sort of photo-op if you will, and tried to protest the ones actually doing good and trying to assist the flood victims in any way possible, the police.
Now many black Louisiana residents have declared that they do not want to see the BLM around Louisiana and that they are no longer welcome in Baton Rouge.
The left can try to spin stories and lie to the public as mush as they want but that doesn't change the facts. The facts are that while Obama is off hitting golf balls in Martha's Vineyard and the BLM are protesting and fighting the police, slowing down their aid efforts. Trump and the police are the ones on the ground trying to make a difference for these Louisiana residents who have lost everything.
