‘Shameful behavior’: Internet crushes Trump for nursing petty grudges while Hurricane Harvey slams Texas
President Donald Trump on Friday sent out tweets attacking both the news media and a Republican senator — but nothing aimed at helping people on Gulf Coast prepare for Hurricane Harvey, which meteorologists warn could be a very dangerous storm for the region.
Many Twitter users were quick to note that Trump had plenty of time to spend tweeting out attacks on his enemies while at the same time completely ignoring the potentially catastrophic natural disaster barreling toward Texas and other southern states.
Check out the top responses below.
#Harvey is about to waltz across Texas, with loss of life & incredible damage & this "president" is obsessed with grudges. Shameful behavior

Trump can't post about the hurricane. He's been too busy posting against GOP senators.

Right now, there are probably members of Trump's Inner Circle meeting to figure out ways to make money off of Hurricane Harvey.

Glad to see Fox News put a small box with the hurricane progress in the corner. Now we know Trump will be monitoring the storms progress.
