Remember what we said yesterday about Trump winning the optics game against Obama (and Hillary)? Well, today, he’s continuing to pull ahead, with a little help from former Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu. A Democrat.
Mary Landrieu: 'I want to thank Mr. Trump for coming to LA…I hope Sec Clinton will make her way down. I hope Pres Obama will make a visit.'

More Mary Landrieu: "I hope Secretary Clinton will make her way down. I hope President Obama will make a visit." https://t.co/kQokklbbm5

Now, some people are pointing out that Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards requested that Obama wait an additional 10 to 14 days before visiting flood-ravaged Baton Rouge:

@ByronYork Governor asked them not to come. Stop the Stupid BS of not reporting all the facts. Its so disgusting. Be a Journalist.

But come on. Does anyone out there actually believe that Edwards’ line was anything other than a lame excuse for Obama’s warped priorities? The president hasn’t even been able to muster so much as a statement regarding the disaster in Louisiana. And Hillary’s been too busy deflecting and tweeting about the Olympics and lying about Colin Powell to make a move for Louisiana.
@prettylady325 Oh and Landrieu is a Dem. She's putting the people of LA first instead of politics.

Now would be a good time for Obama and Hillary to do the same.
