He didn’t “snap” at the reporter. He stopped him, corrected him and set the record straight. There is a major difference.
Our Governor is badass, didn’t even give him the opportunity to divide the room
Did the little slugs of the MSM ask Democrats these questions during Katrina???
Governor of Louisiana during KATRINA, DEMOCRAT Governor Kathleen Blanco
“On August 27, 2005, Governor Blanco, speaking about Hurricane Katrina, told the media in Jefferson Parish, “I believe we are prepared. That’s the one thing that I’ve always been able to brag about.” Later that day, she issued a request for federal assistance and USD $9 million in aid.”……
Mayor of New Orleans during KATRINA, DEMOCRAT Mayor Ray Nagin
“Mayor Nagin advised New Orleanians to keep a close eye on the storm and prepare for evacuation. He then made several public statements encouraging people to leave and advising that if they did not evacuate, “We will take care of you”. By 10 a.m. Saturday, In accordance with the regional evacuation plan, New Orleans, along with the surrounding areas of Jefferson and St. Charles parishes, were given formal voluntary evacuation orders around 50 hours from landfall. Nagin had, however, ignored federal and state offers of help and a recommendation to evacuate the city.”
Nagin’s most newsworthy comments – where he explained why he didn’t use hundreds of city school buses to evacuate his city’s flood victims – went almost unnoticed. Turns out, Nagin turned his nose up at the yellow buses, demanding more comfortable Greyhound coaches instead. “I need 500 buses, man,” he told WWL. “One of the briefings we had they were talking about getting, you know, public school bus drivers to come down here and bus people out of here.”
“I’m like – you’ve got to be kidding me. This is a natural disaster. Get every doggone Greyhound bus line in the country and get their asses moving to New Orleans.”
While Nagin was waiting for his Greyhound fleet, Katrina’s floodwaters swamped his school buses, rendering them unusable.”
In a speech on Martin Luther King Jr. Day in 2006, Nagin, who is black, said: “It’s time for us to rebuild … a chocolate New Orleans,” adding that “This city will be a majority African-American city. It’s the way God wants it to be.”
In 2014, Nagin was convicted on twenty of twenty-one charges of wire fraud, bribery, and money laundering related to bribes from city contractors before and after Hurricane Katrina and was sentenced to ten years in federal prison.
