The president is known for his lackluster performances on Twitter, and that’s exactly what they are. Trump knows he has to act a certain way to keep his racist middle-American base happy and content in their poor white skin.
Trump often tweets about natural disasters like he’s looking for a pat on the back for a job well done, but his messages often fall short of uniting a nation for a cause. Like the one trump tweeted today about the current tropical storm taking place in the gulf of Mexico.
Trump just retweeted this, adding no comments on the storm or the people in its path:
As hazardous conditions arrive along the Gulf Coast today with #Barry, get information on local weather and impacts from @NWSNewOrleans @NWSLakeCharles @NWSMobile @NWSJacksonMS pic.twitter.com/XRl4EiBHoN

People were immediately upset that the president had nothing to say about the possibly fatal storm brewing over our southern states. We saved the best reactions for you below:
