Hillary Clinton’s reaction to Louisiana floods vs. Katrina

Where is Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton as residents in flood-ravaged Baton Rouge and surrounding areas continue to suffer through the loss of their homes and loved ones?  Following the worst natural disaster to hit Louisiana since Hurricane Katrina, Clinton shrugged off the misery with a note on her website urging supporters to "give what they can."

Clinton also wrote that she is committed to visiting affected communities when her presence will not disrupt relief efforts. 

Funny how her opponent, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, managed to make his way to the flood zone with minimal disruption.  Trump also donated $100,000 in supplies with little fanfare from the media.

As for Clinton?  The non-alternative, corrupt media complex doesn't care that its chosen candidate is a no-show and a cheapskate.  Has Hillary pledged to match Trump's $100,000?  Nope.

Thirteen dead and 100,000 damaged homes is just like Benghazi for Hillary.  What difference does it make?  She knows there's no big payoff visiting suffering, grieving families on the gulf coast.  With a far-left Democrat president in the White House controlling the media, she can phone it in.  Clinton has cable pundits, network news, NeverTrumpers, newspaper CEOs all running interference for her, so why risk getting bit by mosquitoes and contracting the Zika virus down in Louisiana (a possibility she actually warns readers about in her online statement)?

Hillary's token nod to the flood victims in August 2016 is a disgrace compared to her actions and remarks days and weeks following the Katrina disaster in August 2005.

On September 7, 2005, a week after Katrina wreaked havoc in New Orleans and towns along the gulf coast states, Senator Clinton introduced b.1622 to establish a congressional commission to examine the government's response to the devastation caused by Katrina.

On September 22, 2005, Clinton, along with Senator Barack Obama and a panel of black radical activists, politicians, and Marxist-inspired academics, participated in a Congressional Black Caucus town hall titled "Eradicating Poverty."  One by one, the participants blasted the Bush administration's slow response to Katrina.

At the 48:20 minute in this C-SPAN video, Senator Clinton begins her remarks.  Some highlights include Clinton admonishing us that the nation's "strength does not come from turning our backs on what has been happening."

Katrina, she says, has helped us to laser-focus on "vestiges of a system that has kept people down for a hundred years or more."  She fails to mention that it is her political party and its progressive policies that are responsible for the plight of minorities in the inner cities for the last 100 years.

Katrina, she says, "embarrassed us in front of the entire world ... that we didn't do the kind of job that people expect America to do to take care of Americans first[.]"

When it comes to Hillary Clinton, the bottom line for the Louisiana flood victims is, if there’s nothing in it for her, don’t expect her to give a damn.
