During Catastrophic Flooding, Press Poses Trump Hurricane 'Test'
By Howard Kurtz, FOX NEWS
What will it take for Donald Trump to pass “the test”?
With the president and first lady arriving in Texas today, will the journalists who questioned whether Trump could handle Hurricane Harvey at least give him credit for showing compassion?
He is, at the very least, avoiding the symbolic mistake of George W. Bush in flying over New Orleans after Katrina. (Bush later admitted this was a “huge mistake” that made him look “detached and uncaring.”)
While Harvey’s catastrophic flooding is overwhelming authorities in Houston, Trump hasn’t made any significant missteps so far. He held video conferences with senior officials from Camp David--with the White House sending out pictures to create an image of control.
