[WATCH] 12 years after Katrina, Louisiana gov’s stunning comments on Trump’s response to Harvey

President Donald Trump and the First Lady are in Texas today to survey the damage done by Hurricane Harvey — and for some bizarre reason, the media seems more fixated on Melania’s shoes than anything else.

Perhaps that’s because there isn’t anything legitimate to criticize Trump over in this case, as even Democrat politicians are praising his response.

According to Breitbart:

On CNN’s “New Day,” Gov. John Bel Edwards (D-LA) said President Donald Trump and the federal government response to the impact of Hurricane Harvey on his state has been “excellent.”

Edwards said, “Well, first of all, let me tell you the federal government has been excellent. The president has called twice. He signed the declaration we requested within a few hours of our making the request on Sunday evening. Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Duke has been wonderful and FEMA administrator Brock has been great as well.”

He added,”What we need right now is really mother nature to cooperate more than anything else. We believe we’re positioned well. We’ve been staging assets and personnel. We’ve got 700 national guardsmen for example that are working. We’ve got high water vehicles, boats, aircraft staged where we need them. We just need for this storm system to move on through so that question starts to dry out.”

Watch below:

Certainly not the response they were expecting, don’t you think?
