As if a lackluster response to the plight of thousands of victims of epic flooding in Louisiana wasn’t bad enough, Hillary Clinton is now reportedly looking to capitalize on their misery in a fundraising email.
According to a social media user, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook sent an email Friday drawing on the epic flooding in Baton Rouge that has already claimed the lives of 13 people to ask for donations.
Donations for Hillary, not the flood victims!
“I just got off the phone with Governor John Bel Edwards of Louisiana,” Mook said in the email displayed. “The flooding there is more extensive than anyone expected — more than 40,000 homes have been damaged and more than 100,000 people have been affected.
“My heart breaks for Louisiana, and right now, the relief effort can’t afford any distractions,” he appealed. “The very best way this team can help is to make sure Louisianans have the resources they need.”
Mook proceeds to ask for a $10 donation — for his boss, according to the report.
“Hillary needs you now more than ever — chip in $10 and be one of the more than 2 million grassroots donors standing with her,” he asked supporters.
The email has not been independently verified by BPR, but reaction to the claim was brutal… here’s a small sampling of responses from Twitter:
