In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, there have been plenty of fingers pointed at the current president of the United States for simply not doing enough or reacting in the best way. Of course, this has naturally caused an uproar with President Trump’s supporters who have decided to ‘clap back’ with…well, lies.
Essentially, a twitter account known as ‘@TrumpResponders’ has resurfaced from February 2017 in response to Trump criticism in regards to Hurricane Harvey. @TrumpResponders claims that former first lady Michelle Obama did not care about the victims of Hurricane Katrina and went shopping immediately after disaster struck.
Unfortunately for @TrumpResponders, most people saw through their shallow attempt to get attention off of Trump and onto the Obama family (who weren’t even in the White House at the time of Hurricane Katrina). Not only was Barrack Obama not president, therefore, Michelle Obama was not the First Lady of the United States but also the picture they claim to be of Michelle Obama is actually of Condoleeza Rice.
There’s a lot to unpack here, but it all leads to the answer of ‘blatant racism.’ Because one, not all Black women look alike and two, shaming the only Black family to have ever lived in the White House to get heat off of the new white president is transparent at best.
