President Barack Obama finally left his extended golfing vacation to visit the flood victims in Louisiana.
Many days have passed since the most serious flooding problems happened, and arriving on the scene immediately would have seemed Presidential (just like Donald Trump did). But Obama wanted to wait to get more rounds of golf in before a photo-op… two weeks later.
Then, Obama announced: “This isn’t a photo-op issue”:

Twitter immediately responding, noting that Obama is ONLY there to take photos and respond to the photos of Trump helping in the relief efforts:
Great News! Standby. Pres Obama is about to tell us all about the Louisiana flood that we’ve been watching for 2 weeks & he saw just today.

Obama is preaching to America like we haven’t already been doing our part to help the people of Louisiana. You’re a week late.

Obama in Louisiana just now “This is not a photo op issue” Maybe it wasn’t 12 days ago but he was too busy partying & golfing
