Houston rapper Lil’ Flip defends Trump’s visit and has a message for president’s critics

Houston rapper Lil’ Flip said it’s “good” that President Trump visited the flood-ravaged Houston area.

…and he had a message for those quick to criticism Trump.

“I feel like it’s the president’s duty to get out there with the people on the front lines sometimes to see what’s going on,” said Wesley Eric Weston, Jr, who goes by the stage name Lil’ Flip.

“At least he came, he didn’t just sit in his White House and not come,” he added.

Weston said that Trump was in a “damned if you do, damned if you don’t situation.”

“A lot of times I feel that people sit back and they criticize on what you do,” he said. “But those same people, did those same people catch flights to Houston? Did those same people go out there and make great speeches?”

“At the end of the day, you can’t never please everybody,” the rapper continued. “My take on that, hey… if you go pointing the finger at somebody, then you should be out there.”

As for attacking Trump for his efforts, Lil’ Flip said: “He without sin cast the first stone.”
