President Donald Trump reported being “bored” and watching TV all weekend. I hope he was enjoying himself because people in Mississippi were losing their homes, and 20 people lost their lives.
The Mississippi Governor, Phil Bryant, sent a letter to Trump begging him to send the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
“I’m asking President Trump to cut through the red tape and get people on the damned ground here.”
Hey, Trump! Do you not realize that this is part of your job? Approximately 50 tornadoes hit Georgia and Mississippi between Thursday and Saturday. Thousands of homes were destroyed.

Donald Trump did offer his condolences, and he said they were sending federal aid.
As NBC News reported:
“Desperate officials pleaded with President Donald Trump to send federal assistance Monday after at least 20 people were killed by storms and tornadoes that caused devastation authorities likened to the impact of a nuclear blast.”
Get your shit together, Trump. You need to get off your ass, and help people. You don’t get to just sit in the White House and watch your soaps. It’s getting to be tornado season soon. These things happen.
A couple of days after these storms hit, President Trump approved Georgia’s request for FEMA aid. Georgia Governor Nathan Deal thanked Trump for this aid. He blamed the presidential transition for the delay. They are also sending disaster aid to Mississippi.
