In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Democrats and their many media allies successfully created an unfair narrative which blamed George W. Bush for acting too slowly.
When it became clear this week that President Trump planned to act quickly in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, they tried to make that the new narrative.
Katy Tur of MSNBC was quick to break the new talking points. Scott Whitlock of News Busters reported:
No Shame: MSNBC Whines That Trump Is Going to Texas Too Quickly
Proving they are the opposition party, journalists completely switched complaints when it comes to the subject of Republican presidents and Hurricanes. While reporters spun George W. Bush as callously staying away from Hurricane Katrina, MSNBC’s Katy Turn on Monday whined about Hurricane Harvey: “[Donald Trump is] going to Texas tomorrow and there’s real concern that his going there is going to have to divert, at least a little bit, some resources away from the rescue effort and toward him.”
Talking to ex-Congressman Tom Davis, she chided, “The President is going to Corpus Christi and he will be diverting at the very least some resources away from them. There’s an ongoing search and rescue effort underway in Houston and the other areas that have been devastated so far by these floods that could only intensify and get worse by tomorrow. Do you think it’s the right thing to go?”
Here’s the video:
On CBS News, Bernie Sanders was pressed repeatedly to say Trump was going to Texas too soon. Jack Heretik reported at the Washington Free Beacon:
CBS Hosts Push Sanders to Say Trump Is Visiting Texas ‘Too Soon’
The hosts of “CBS This Morning” on Tuesday pushed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) to criticize President Donald Trump’s visit to Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, a critique Sanders was reluctant to make.
Gayle King was the first to ask Sanders if it was a good idea for Trump to visit. Sanders said “I don’t know” as he fumbled over his words.
“Well, there’s one school of thought—they’re still in the middle of it,” King interjected…
“Is it too soon for a presidential visit?” co-host Maurice DuBois again asked.
If you watch the video below, you can see even Sanders was uncomfortable with this line of questioning:
These were not isolated incidents. David Rutz, also of the Free Beacon, created this compilation which includes other examples:
The liberal media is playing a political game with this tragedy and they’re doing their best to make sure Trump can’t win no matter what he does. It is further proof that they have learned nothing since the election.
