President Donald Trump, on a conference call Wednesday with state and federal leaders as Texas prepares for another harrowing hurricane season, thanked the Coast Guard for helping save thousands during Hurricane Harvey last year.
But later in the call, Trump made a claim that took many state leaders and first responders by surprise.
“They saved 16,000 people, many of them in Texas, for whatever reason that is,” Trump said. “People went out in their boats to watch the hurricane. That didn’t work out too well.”
Yeah, no. I work at a Texas TV station and we were covering that live. I was watching live feeds every morning of people in their boats either trying to stay alive, or rescuing others. Nobody was on boats watching the hurricane.
I can’t beleive this feckless moron is our President.
