For a man who sold his campaign to working-class voters, Donald Trump doesn't seem to have much experience with physical labor.
In a super awkward photo op during his second visit to Texas in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Trump attempted to show he's not afraid to put some sweat into the relief effort.
Think about this. He's never loaded anything into a pickup. Do you still think he identifies with the American working class?— JP Gilmore (@realjpgil) September 3, 2017
If you listen to the video closely, you can hear Trump tell the driver of the truck working to transport relief supplies to "Have a good time."
And did you hear him tell the driver of the truck "Have a good time!"?— liz (@Liz_zie7) September 3, 2017
Yep. They're having the time of their lives Don. You are just the f-ing cherry on the top! 😒— EU Queen (@VeeCee30) September 3, 2017
'Have a good time.' Did he think he was loading their truck for a tailgate party?— Joisey Joh (@JoiseyJoh) September 3, 2017
Having a good time isn't what usually comes to mind when people think of hurricane relief efforts.
Saw small kids shoveling muck out of their homes!He says"Good exercise!" While halfass loading boxes that would likely blow out in a mile!— Wayne (@grumpyoldman418) September 3, 2017
And then smiles directly into the camera. Pure photo op. If the cameras weren't there he wouldn't have lifted a finger.— Na3than (@ICanBeWrong) September 3, 2017
