OPINION: Unfair Trump Criticism Is a Bad Look for Journalists
By Anneke E. Green, Real Clear Politics
John Murray spray-painted the words “Bet they blame Trump” across his boarded-up hair salon in Rockport, Texas, after Hurricane Harvey tore the town apart. He told an AP reporter accompanying President Trump on a visit to the area last week that every time he turns on the television he hears people complaining about the president. "He could go for a walk and they'd find something to complain about," Murray said.
The administration’s handling of Harvey objectively seems to be going well so far. Supplies were positioned for distribution ahead of the storm. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has publically praised the Federal Emergency Management Agency as well as the White House, saying the state was “getting absolutely everything we need.” Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said he had nothing to ask of Trump after meeting with him during a presidential visit to Harvey-affected areas Saturday.
