President Donald Trump visited Texas on Tuesday to survey the damage done to the state by Hurricane Harvey — and he once again couldn’t resist the urge to boast about the large crowd he managed to draw during a public appearance to talk about the event.

Trump, who is notoriously obsessed about drawing large crowds, was quickly hammered on the internet for treating a hurricane relief effort like yet another one of his campaign rallies.
