Critics have pointed out how President Obama chose to remain on the golf course and not being with the grieving families in Louisiana during last week's devastating floods. As for Gov. John Bel Edwards, he's apparently not thrilled with GOP nominee Donald Trump for being there.Trump and his vice presidential running mate Mike Pence are currently touring the destruction the flood left in Louisiana, passing out supplies and meeting with the affected families. Yet, before his arrival, Edwards was not impressed, seeing it as nothing more than a photo op for the presidential candidate.
Trump surrogate and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani had something to say about Edwards' chilly reception for the Republican ticket, reminding him that during the September 11 attacks, he welcomed all leaders to the Empire State, regardless of their politics. Trump, the mayor argued, has acted more presidential than the president himself.

As for Hillary Clinton, she opted to give the governor a phone call instead of a visit.
