10 Biting Twitter Responses to Trump's Obscene Boast About the Size of His Hurricane Relief Event
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.
Addressing a crowd of supporters in the city of Corpus Christi, Trump marveled at the number of people who showed up to greet him during his visit.
“What a crowd!” Trump said. “What a turnout!”
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.
