As the mainstream media goons continue to look for racist narrative to pin on President Donald Trump for the disaster in Puerto Rico, it appears it missed a story.

On Wednesday, as the president was headed to the Indianapolis International Airport to fly back to Washington D.C., an officer who was escorting him crashed his motorcycle on I-70, according to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department who expressed gratitude on social media.

The officer, Robert Turner, suffered a broken ankle, a possible concussion and cuts and bruises. he was taken to the hospital as the president’s motorcade continued on its journey.

But that was not the end of it for President Trump.

The president would not allow his flight to take off until he spoke to Chief Bryan Roach and the injured officer.

“#BREAKING: Thank you to @POTUS for delaying wheels up to speak with injured Officer Turner. #ThankYou,” it wrote on Twitter.

“On behalf of the IMPD, we would like to take an opportunity to thank President Donald J. Trump for his thoughtful act in delaying his departure in Air Force One until he was assured that the officer injured in the motorcade accident was ok,” it wrote on Facebook.

“Calls were made by his staff to Chief Bryan Roach checking on Cycle Officer Turner. President Trump even took the time to speak with Officer Turner after the accident, to check on him. Thank you for your compassion, concern, and leadership Mr. President!”
