Many, concerned they would get “pennies on the dollar” for ruined possessions, were grateful for the assistance of local churches and the “Cajun Navy” – a volunteer flotilla force of locals with boats who saved thousands of people during the disaster.
But residents were less than impressed with U.S. President Barack Obama and his would-be successor, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
One local told Breitbart News that Mrs. Clinton may have a “personnel issue” which kept her away from the state after the disaster. Instead, she chose to fly to California to schmooze with liberal, Hollywood donors and celebrities.
Her failure to attend the flooded areas was underscored by a visit from Republican candidate Donald Trump, who not only brought attention to the area, but also donated $100,000 to the relief efforts.
