Trump Flies Into Louisiana To Help Flood Victims By Passing Out...

 Boxes of Play-Doh

Yeah. He did that. And hey! he wasn't exploiting a tragedy to make himself look presidential, cuz everyone knows that when a tragedy like a flood hits, what the victims need is:


Thanks Donnie for your sincere concern.


Trump Disobeys Louisiana Governor to Bravely Deliver Play-Doh to Flood Victims (VIDEO)Nathan Wellman | August 19, 2016 Facebook Twitter Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump defied the wishes of Louisiana Governor Edwards today to briefly participate in unloading Play-Doh off of a supply truck while being surrounded by media.

Governor Edwards, currently responding to some of the worst floods in his state since Hurricane Katrina, had previously said of Trump in a statement that “We welcome him to Louisiana but not for a photo-op. Instead we hope he’ll consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of the storm.” 

Trump went to Louisiana anyway, having previously criticized President Obama for “working on his golf game” while Louisiana citizens suffered. Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway insisted that the visit was not a photo op, praising Trump for acting “presidential” and describing his stay there as “a decidedly nonpolitical event, no press allowed, going to help people on the ground who are in need.” 

Trump toured some of the damage during his visit, and briefly assisted in unloading a truck while surrounded by cameras, passing twelve boxes of Play-Doh to vice presidential candidate Mike Pence before leaving for the nearest reporter.

 “It’s a great place, I’ve had a great history with Louisiana,” Trump said. “They need a lot of help. What happened here is incredible, nobody understands how bad it is. It’s really incredible, I’m just here to help. Thank you.” 

On Friday morning, freshly-minted Donald Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told ABC News that Trump and running mate Mike Pence would be traveling to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to “help people on the ground” in a “decidedly nonpolitical event” with “no press allowed.”

As it turns out, though, there actually were members of the press allowed, and the candidate did use the occasion to attack his political opponent, and there were opportunities for photographs, but true to his word, Trump did “help out.” Pool cameras trailed Trump for his entire visit, and over the course of those several hours, Trump “helped out” by unloading a truckload of toys for 49 seconds, these 49 seconds: After that, it was into the fire house, out the back door, and back to the Trump plane.

Thanks Donnie. And thanks for your humanitarian Play-Doh!

Perhaps he kept a container of Play-Doh to plug up the gaping hole in his presidential campaign. It seems like all his supporters are leaking out.

Anyone paying attention knows this was indeed a photo-op and that Trump is phoney.

As well he is full of the brown stuff up his eyeball.

He's there isn't he? That's more than you can say about those other 2 idiots, Obama and Hittlery

And he did it for all of 49 seconds. Rachel played the entire clip of him 'helping'. The rest of the time he was holding up search and rescue and recovery work. The Gov. and FEMA both asked the politicians to stay out until next week. Seems Drumpf would rather get his yuge ugly mug in front of a camera than allow the rescuers to do their work like Hillary and the President have done.

You had my hopes up there. Think what a relief it would be to the world if he really did pass out.

Ah, well. I'm sure it was the greatest Play-Doh ever, a yuuuuge amount of it. Perhaps Play-Doh will become iconically associated with Trump, like "Green Eggs and Ham" with Ted Cruz or the dog on the car roof with Mitt Romney.

This is a perfect example of why The Trumpster has such a loyal following. Some wingnut found this "poll" on the intertubz and believed it.

Fact Checker:

This was an amusing parody of a PPP polls memo, especially so because I saw it tweeted by Trumpistas who believed every word:

fake FL poll
No, it’s not real.

This is why Trump became the GOP's nominee -- the base of the GOP is gullible and more than willing to believe any trash they find on the internet as true.

"And he did it for all of 49 seconds."

That's what his wife said.
