Hillary Wished Zika On Trump For Visiting Louisiana

Donald Trump and Mike Pence visited flood-ravaged Louisiana on Friday, and got the requisite photo-op. Cynicism aside, I actually think Trump and Pence care about the situation in a much more human way than Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

On Monday, the Clinton campaign issued a statement–the highest form of compassion from Herself–about the flooding.

First, it literally took four days for the Clinton organization to draft and release something to the public. That in itself is shameful considering that it only took six hours for the State Department to react to Benghazi with a “it must be a Youtube video” cover story.

Second, Clinton’s statement (did she even read it?) focused on Zika versus the personal loss of the homeless and destitute.

We also need to make sure that this crisis is not compounded by another, by ensuring mosquito abatement is happening hand-in-hand with flood response, to reduce the riska [sic] of mosquitoes that could carry the Zika virus from gaining a foothold in Louisiana.

Apparently, it’s-a riska that Trump-a had-a to-a take when he visited personally. In a 242-word statement, 44 words were devoted to Zika (18 percent). And a whole paragraph devoted to “why I can’t come personally, but suffer without me.”

Zika takes about 21 days to show up, so I assume that Hillary will visit after that. If Trump is Zika-free, she’ll go. How compassionate of her.
