And he donated Play-Doh… maybe

Donald Trump may be seen as a smart man by some, but he’s been doing things that make him seem not-so-smart. During this heated race to the presidential office between the conservative Trump and more liberal Hillary Clinton, Trump felt that there would be no better way than to look like he’s helping others than to head on down to the flood-ravaged areas of Louisiana. Why? For a quick photo opportunity and a few handshakes despite the governor of Louisiana, John Bel Edwards, begging him not to turn his trip into a publicity stunt. Bel asked that instead Trump should donate a sizable sum of money to flood relief efforts through a trusted organization. Trump really didn’t listen to any of that.

Trump is being ridiculed in the press most recently for seeming like a fraud during his Louisiana trip, and giving his cash to a church run by a man who runs an anti-gay organization. So what’s fact and what’s fiction in this Trump Flood Relief debacle? Let’s clear it up right now.
