he claims that it would be very "unfair" to the thousands of people who want to see him.
Yeah. That's what's most important. What does it say about his supporters that Trump doesn't think they'd understand him cancelling a political rally because of a national disaster? What does it say about the man himself? How would they feel if it were them struggling through a crisis while the president went on about his business?
BULLSHIT!! He is doing a large donor FUNDRAISER while there!!!!

at least one reported death. It's down to a cat 3 -115 mph still going strong in Albany, Georgia.
But hey, we shouldn't be petty by criticizing a president who cares more about one of his weekly political rallies than people dying and suffering in a national disaster. His precious wittle ego is the most important thing.
How many died from gunshots in Chicago today?

It's not about the 'FOLKS'. There is a FUNDRAISER before or after the rally!!

Summarizing many people's perceptions of Bush's performance after Katrina, entertainer Kanye West said, "George Bush doesn't care about black people," who were disproportionately the victims of the hurricane. Bush later called this "one of the most disgusting moments of my presidency." Bush added: "He called me a racist. ... I resent it. It's not true."

The thing about Bush was that he was on vacation during Katrina. That's a pretty bad excuse. But, in this case, Trump is well aware of what's happening. He's just made a conscious choice to ignore it. So...will we soon have Kanye West saying Trump doesn't care about black people?

Agreed. If this petty shit is the best they can come up with then they're in trouble.
You petty stupid people
His FUNDRAISER for a REP GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE IN TROUBLE I'm sure has no bearing at all on him getting to PA while a hurricane rages in his 'other' state...

Fox News Host Headlines Fundraiser for 'Tapped Out' Wagner

The campaign of Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner is hosting a fundraiser headlined by a Fox News host just days after he warned that he's "tapped out" and that establishment Republicans are working against him.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The campaign of Republican gubernatorial candidate Scott Wagner is hosting a fundraiser headlined by Fox News host Jeanine Pirro just days after he warned that he's "tapped out" and that establishment Republicans are working against him.

Wednesday's fundraiser in York overlapped with President Donald Trump's visit to Erie, which Wagner was scheduled to join.

Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf's campaign has outspent Wagner's and reported a huge campaign cash advantage over Wagner, five- to-one, as of Sept. 17. Wagner said in a fundraising email over the weekend that he's tapped out after spending more than $10 million of his own money on the race and accused a "small number of establishment Republicans" of working against him behind the scenes to undermine his campaign.

His campaign isn't saying which Republicans he's referring to.

his staff is either incompetent or they are trying hard not to say anything that spoils his plans. One of them says it's a cat 4 , which is correct, the next says it's going to be a cat 2. They're all discussing it like they're planning a picnic. There's no urgency being portrayed here. No sense that people are about to likely die. UGGGGhhh. When will this nightmare end? Trump is sitting there like a petulant little bored child.
