Trump’s old tweet criticizing Obama for campaigning after a hurricane comes back to haunt him

There’s always a tweet.
“Yesterday Obama campaigned with JayZ & Springsteen while Hurricane Sandy victims across NY & NJ are still decimated by Sandy. Wrong!” the now-president wrote in November 2012.

During the rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, the president offered his “thoughts and prayers” to those affected by Hurricane Michael and added that he would travel to the areas affected “very shortly,” according to the Associated Press.
On Wednesday, as the hurricane made landfall near Mexico Beach, Fla., Trump said he “cannot disappoint” the people attending his Pennsylvania rally.
Trump’s inability to follow his own advice about not campaigning during the aftermath of a hurricane was pointed out by people online.
Almost 6 years ago, Trump blasted Obama for campaigning during Hurricane Sandy cleanup. Look at him now up in Erie while a category 3 hurricane hits Florida. https://t.co/h0pv8KRpvd

– Held a fundraiser
– Held a campaign rally
– interviewed with Salena Zito
– interviewed with Fox News' Shannon Bream
– Had a 47 minute chit chat with Fox & Friends https://t.co/bmNuccrmgH
