Twitter Rips Trump for Saying Reporters Would Only Join Storm Rescue Missions for Stories

There’s quite a few online commentators who are not impressed after President Trump took a political shot in the middle of his tour through Houston after Hurricane Harvey.

As Trump greeted storm victims and first responders earlier today, he also met with the Coast Guard and congratulated them on a job well done. Before commending the military officials, however, Trump offered comments about media people who would almost never head towards a natural disaster unless there was a “really good story” up for grabs.

The Twitterverse took notice of those remarks, and some people thought they really put a damper on Trump’s day of consoling the people of Texas. Plenty of people are criticizing Trump for making things political while ignoring all the journalists who actively involved themselves with rescue efforts and live coverage from disaster areas.
