Kirstie Alley Blasts Barack Obama for continued playing golf than dealing with Louisiana Floods … There is a reason why they calling him the Golfer in Chief.
Former Cheers actress Kirstie Alley blasted Barack Obama for his carefree attitude of playing golf on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods that resulted in 13 deaths and many more still missing. Alley took to Twitter to remind voters how Mr. Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina. It shameful, simply shameful that a president would be more consumed with his golf game than actually caring about the lives of American citizens. But of course that was difference for the MSM, Democrats and Obama because it was a Republican president. Just curious, where is “Black Lives Matter” as well? I guess we really know what matters with these folks after all.
Barack Obama’s decision to carry on with his holiday on Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods has come under fire from Kirstie Alley.
The actress best known for her appearance in the popular TV comedy Cheers has used Twitter to remind voters how Mr Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina.
She ridiculed Mr Obama for playing golf while swathes of Louisiana were underwater, adding that she thought George Bush waited too long to visit New Orleans following Katrina.
Of course I would rather play golf than go to Louisiana
Mr Obama has said he will visit Louisiana within the next few days. Mr Trump and Mike Pence, his running mate, visited Louisiana last week and were photographed helping deliver aid packages.
Obama will get to Louisiana in his own sweet time after he has played 10 rounds of golf while on vacation and his 300th round of his presidency. So glad this president has a sense of priorities. Golf more important than the little people. The man simply does not care. We have seen what his real priorities are.
Donald Trump Heads to Louisiana Tomorrow While Barack Obama Golfs & Vacations and Hillary Clinton Rests
HOW SICK IS THIS THAT WE HAVE A TRAGEDY LIKE THE FLOODS IN LOUISIANA AND OBAMA GOLFS ON VACATION AS AMERICANS SUFFER …
Louisiana is suffering through the worst disaster since Hurricane Sandy as more than 20,000 people were displaced in the flooding, 13 people have died and many more are missing. Don’t worry, President Barack Obama does not seem to be phased by the terrible news as he is on his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard yucking it up with lifestyles of the rich and famous.
However, Fox News is reporting that Vice Presidential candidate Governor Mike Pence will be traveling with Donald Trump to Baton Rouge.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence will visit flood-damaged areas of Baton Rouge, La. Friday.
Record flooding across Louisiana has killed at least 13 people. Over 85,000 people have registered for federal disaster assistance, more than 30,000 have been rescued, and an estimated 40,000 homes have been damaged.
Trump addressed the flooding at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday night, calling Louisiana “a state that is very, very special to me.”
“Though words cannot express the sadness one feels at times like this,” Trump said, “I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them, and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours.”
However, a spokesman for Louisiana’s governor said his office had not been contacted by the Trump campaign.
Richard Carbo, spokesman for Gov. John Bel Edwards, told the Associated Press Trump was welcome to Louisiana, “but not for a photo-op.” Instead, Carbo proposed Trump “consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of this storm.”
What a double standard we are witness too from the liberal MSM. Remember when the media ripped George W. Bush during Hurricane Katrina and they completely ignore the fact that Barack Obama has all but ignored the Louisiana flooding as he golf and refuses to cut his vacation short.
President George W. Bush was torn to shreds in 2005 by mainstream media commentators for his initial response to Hurricane Katrina – yet President Obama’s detached response to the recent Louisiana floods has been met with resounding silence from those same outlets.
“George Bush doesn’t care about black people” was the shocking charge by singer Kanye West about President Bush’s response to Katrina. West’s was a particularly blunt assessment, but echoed a growing narrative pushed by mainstream media outlets that Bush’s response was out of touch, inept and most of all, he didn’t care about people on the ground.
Much of the media coverage at the time not only criticized Bush for the difficulties the federal government faced in responding to the disaster, but also lambasted him for taking too long to return from vacation and to visit the site on the ground.
When he did return early from vacation, just two days after the disaster hit, he faced further criticism for flying over New Orleans on his way back to Washington D.C. before flying out to visit the victims of the tragedy.
WEST VIRGINIA FLOODS CLAIM MORE LIVES …
The death toll had been at 23, until three more bodies were found in West Virginia’s devastating flood, bring the death toll to 26 as many more people are still missing as well. According to Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office, the 3 deaths were reported overnight in Elkview. Sadly, the death count is expected to climb as the historic floods have destroyed hundreds of homes, washed out roads and knocked out power to tens of thousands of people. Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin declared states of emergency in 44 counties Thursday night and he activated 200 National Guard members to assist in eight counties and has authorization to activate as many as 300 more, if needed.
Search continues for missing people after West Virginia flooding.
Three more bodies were found in West Virginia’s devastating flood, bringing the death toll from the natural disaster to 26 as authorities are still searching for missing people.
As the death count climbs , high waters and torrential downpours also destroyed more than 100 homes, washed out countless roads and knocked out power for tens and thousands of people.
Authorities said Saturday that people are still unaccounted for in the county hardest-hit by the floods, Greenbrier, the home of the famous golf course of the same name.

SAY A PRAYER FOR THOSE IN THE DALLAS, TEXAS AREA THAT WERE HIT WITH DEADLY TORNADOES LAST NIGHT …
Last night, tornadoes swept through the Dallas area leaving substantial damage and at least eleven people dead either from the storm or related traffic accidents. The National Weather Service in Fort Worth said several tornadoes touched down in the Dallas area, although the full extent of damage would not be known until daylight Sunday.
The storm blew the roofs off homes and left vehicles mangled or turned upside down, churches damaged, power lines down, natural gas lines burst, trees toppled and debris strewn across neighborhoods. The damage stretched over about a 40-mile-long area from 20 miles south of Dallas to northeast of the city.
Joe Harn, police spokesman for Garland, about 20 miles northeast of Dallas, said five people were killed in vehicle accidents during the massive storm, but it’s unclear if all five were in the same vehicle or how they died.
Tornado in Sunnyvale, Garland, and Rowlett, Texas
Severe storms and tornadoes tore through north Texas, killing at least 11 people in the latest incident of deadly weather in the nation.
The storms hit Dallas suburbs Saturday evening, with Garland suffering the most casualties, authorities said.
Lt. Pedro Barineau with the Garland Police Department confirmed Sunday morning that eight people died in the storm that ripped through Garland.
Barineau said 15 people were hurt and 600 structures were damaged.
Three additional deaths were reported in Collin County, said Lt. Chris Havey, a spokesman for the sheriff’s office. Havey said officials don’t expect the death toll to rise, but they are sifting through debris and making sure no victims were overlooked.
In some neighborhoods in Garland, the storms ripped facades off houses, leaving gaping holes. Cars that had been in driveways ended up inside homes after the tornado barreled through, witnesses said.
Officials said earlier that five of the deaths were related to vehicles hit by a tornado in southeast Garland.
Garland resident Pat McMillian said the tornado left neighborhoods in darkness.
At least 11 people were killed in the Dallas area Saturday night when 11 tornadoes swept North Texas, officials said.
The storm tossed cars off freeways and destroyed at least one apartment building, a recreation vehicle park and several homes across the suburbs northeast of the city, according to officials with the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department and the Garland Police Department. About 50,000 people were without power, officials said.
“There’s been quite an impact in damage and potentially injuries and death,” said Rich Thompson, lead forecaster with the National Weather Service’s storm prediction center in Norman, Okla.
In Rowlett, which borders Garland, at least three houses had collapsed, and the people who lived in them had not been found, said Detective Cruz Hernandez of the Rowlett Police Department.
Detective Hernandez said that the damage in Rowlett was extensive and that the police were seeking to rescue anyone trapped in their homes, although the effort was being hampered by continuing bad weather.
“We can’t get a good sense of it because it’s dark and it’s starting to rain right now,” he said.
On Sunday, Brian Funderburk, the city manager of Rowlett, said 23 people were injured when the city was directly hit by a large tornado. The city enacted a 24-hour curfew in areas affected by the storm to keep roads clear for residents and emergency operations.
At Least 7 Poeple Killed, Many Injured & Others Missing As Deadly Tornadoes Ravage the South Last Night (VIDEO)
SAY A PRAYER FOR THOSE AFFECTED BY THE KILLER TORNADO JUST DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS …
At least 7 were killed yesterday as deadly tornadoes ravaged the South from Mississippi to Arkansas to Tennessee. The severe weather caused tornadoes across the South, 12 alone were witnessed in Mississippi alone. According to reports, 24 tornadoes touched down across 6 states. As reported by ABC News, it will be a difficult Christmas for many families in the south after deadly storms and tornadoes devastated the region, especially in Holly Springs, Mississippi, where a 7 year old boy was killed. The devastation is beyond words.
The mayor of Nashville, TN had asked businesses to let employees go hoe early to avoid the bad weather. When the tornado sirens went off late last night in Music City, thankfully it was mostly deserted. However, some were forced to take cover at the last minute as the severe weather came through. The winds and rain was incredibly severe and those not directly affected by the damage left in the wake of the tornadoes themselves, others lost power, including yours truly.
Tornado caught on tape as it hits highway lined with cars
Officials in tornado-ravaged areas were searching for missing people Thursday after a spring-like storm system swept across the southeast, killing at least seven people — including a 7-year-old boy.
The storms — which the National Weather Service called a “particularly dangerous situation” for an area that spanned eastern Arkansas, northwest Mississippi, northeast Louisiana and western Tennessee — destroyed homes and caused power outages on Wednesday.
It was the first such warning anywhere in the country in a year and a half.
The youngest victim of the severe weather was a 7-year-old in Holly Springs, Mississippi, who was killed in a van on Highway 7 as storms swept through the town, according to Marshall County Coroner James Anderson. Tree limbs and debris covered the highway Thursday, and emergency crews worked to restore downed power lines.
Three people were killed and two others were missing in Benton County, Mississippi, county coroner Shane Ward said late Wednesday. The dead were two men and one woman, all approximately in their 60s. Crews were going house-to-house Thursday to make sure all residents were accounted for.
The other victims were in Tennessee and Arkansas. A man and a woman were killed in Perry County, Tennessee, but no details were made public about their deaths. In Atkins, Arkansas, 18-year-old Michael Remus was killed when a tree crashed into the bedroom she was sharing with her 18-month-old sister. The toddler was taken to a hospital after being safely pulled out of the home by rescuers.
Authorities say teams of searchers are looking for three people still missing in Mississippi after Wednesday’s tornadoes.
Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said Thursday a 35-person team was out looking for the two unaccounted people in Benton County, where he said at least two people died in the storms.
Flynn said another team was searching for the missing person in Tippah County, just southeast of Benton.
