Ten days after a stationary weather system resulted in flash flooding in Louisiana, Hillary Clinton finally came up with a response.
She issued a statement calling upon her supporters “to give what they can to the Red Cross to bring much-needed aid and supplies to the more than 100,000 people affected by the floods.”
She wants her supporters to give — really? What’s wrong with her?
Mic political correspondent Emily Cahn reported:

In the interim, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his running mate, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, drove to the affected are with an 18-wheeler full of much need supplies and before they left, dropped off a check for $100,000.
During that same period, President Obama was busy vacationing in Martha’s Vineyard and Clinton was out begging for campaign money.
All of this earned Trump praise from quarters one wouldn’t expect it — from two Democratic politicians: Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards and former Sen. Mary Landrieu.
Comments to Clinton’s statement were not kind. In fact, some were even brutal.

And then there was the issue of typographical errors.

Clinton would have been better off had she just not said anything at all.
