Democrats like to pretend they’re with the party of compassion.
Their leader—Obama—can’t even interrupt his golfing vacation at Martha’s Vineyard to visit a devastated Louisiana. Trump had no problem changing his plans to help others.
The Political Insider reports a story that the scales of courtesy and kindness to a source the Democrats would rather not see—Donald Trump—and away from the one the left loves to elevate, President Barack Obama.
Here’s an excerpt from the story: “In a little-publicized act of kindness, it has been reported that Donald Trump gave financial support to Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the soldier held in a Mexican jail for 214 days.”
This is the same Marine seemingly forgotten by Obama. Even Congress in a September hearing pointed to Obama’s failure to help out Tahmooressi, concluding he did not put forth the full force of the White House in pressuring Mexico’s government to release Tahmooressi.
The Marine was ultimately let go in November, after a Mexican judge granted the release out of humanitarian reasons. But Obama?
Greta Van Susteren, of former-Fox News fame, detailed the story to her audience, starting with this point: “[Obama] wouldn’t even pick up the phone to help.”
A humble Trump said he was happy to help – but Van Susteren made it clear: Obama really dropped the ball.
“In all seriousness,” she said, “Donald did help out Sgt. Tahmooressi. He sent him some money to help him jump start his life. Sgt. Tahmooressi rotted in a Mexican prison for 214 days. President Obama wouldn’t even pick up the phone.”
