A Presidential comparison

Lyndon Johnson went to a flood ravaged area immediately after a major hurricane hit. He met with the victims in a pitch dark unlighted room where all were huddled. Taking a flashlight he illuminated his face and told them "My name is Lyndon Baines Johnson and I am the President of the United States. We will bring the full force of the national government to aid you", which he did.

Donald Trump paraded and preened in Puerto Rico long after a hurricane hit. He met with Puerto Ricans in the Calvary Chapel with full TV and Press coverage. He told the crowd that Puerto Rico had thrown his budget out of whack, that their catastrophe was NOTHING like Katrina and then proceeded to throw 3 point shots with paper towels to the crowd.
