Speaking on ‘America Now’ Tuesday night, host Buck Sexton slammed the mainstream media for desperately trying to spin Puerto Rico’s hurricane response into Donald Trump’s Katrina; struggling to create a false narrative they can use as a political weapon against the President.
“There you have the President of the United States who is in Puerto Rico, visiting the island, the US-territory full of US citizens, and I just think that we should all remember how hard they were trying to push the narrative that Trump didn’t care about this, wasn’t doing anything,” said Buck.
“You had FEMA there, you had thousands of federal government officials there, you had a response team in place as quickly as possible,” he added. “FEMA operation centers doing everything they can. It’s a disaster area, it’s a natural disaster, it’s obviously going to be tough.”
“They were trying to make this into Trump’s Katrina and I don’t think that they’re going to be able to. The two biggest areas of criticism against Bush […] was the Iraq War and right behind that was the Bush administration’s response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans,” Sexton said.
“Remember what a potent narrative that was against Bush, and [the media] would really like to replay that whole approach with the Trump administration. They should be reporting on what’s happening, not trying to create a narrative based on what they’re hoping to use for their own purposes,” he added.
