Chelsea Clinton was trolled with hilarious tweets on Twitter over the weekend after she lamented over a statement that President Donald Trump made on Saturday while touring areas of Texas and Louisiana ravaged by Hurricane Harvey.
What Trump said
While at a storm relief center in Houston, Trump spoke of the “wonderful” relief efforts, which have seen Americans from all colors and backgrounds come together to help each other out.
Trump said: “Really, I think people appreciate what’s been done. It’s been very efficient, it’s been very well…we’re very happy with the way everything’s been going. A lot of love.”
“As tough as this was, it’s been a wonderful thing. I think even for the country to watch and even for the world to watch. It’s been beautiful,” he added.
Apparently, praising the relief effort and its togetherness isn’t the best thing to do — at least according to Clinton.
“People lost their lives, loved ones, homes, beloved pets. Many thousands of people face uncertain futures. Our President on #Harvey,” she wrote on Twitter Saturday, linking to a video of Trump’s comments.
Many found Clinton’s sentiment to be out of line. Trump was neither insensitive nor lacking empathy in the comments that Clinton linked to, he was merely praising the relief efforts.
Indeed, Trump’s visit to the storm-damaged areas Saturday was a much better visit than the one he made last Tuesday, which he was criticized over for allegedly lacking empathy. Needless to say, social media users trolled Clinton hard:
