According to Bill Feig, photojournalist for The Advocate, President Barack Obama has just landed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to survey the damage from the historic flooding that occurred there last week.
Over the past several days, Obama has received a lot of flak for not cutting his vacation short to visit the mass devastation where up to 10,000 homes have been severely damaged or destroyed and thousands of people are still without power. Critics have noted how much he personally lambasted President George W. Bush for not immediately cutting his vacation short and touring New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005.
Upon Obama's arrival in Louisiana, Donald Trump tweeted, "President Obama should have gone to Louisiana days ago, instead of golfing. Too little, too late!"
Trump himself visited the flood-damaged areas last week. Hillary Clinton criticized his visit as a "distraction," but news footage showed an enthusiastic and appreciative crowd as Trump arrived, helped unload supplies, and met with teary-eyed flood victims.
