Senator Chris Murphy Rips Trump: He’s Attacking Democrats While People Are Dying




Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) ripped President Trump’s Sunday morning tweet “attacking Democrats” while Tropical Storm Harvey was unleashing catastrophic flooding in Texas.

“My god. At this exact moment people are dying in the worst natural disaster of his Presidency & instead of leading he’s attacking Democrats,” Murphy tweeted.

Murphy’s remarks came in response to Trump’s tweet which appears to take a shot at Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri, who’s up for a third Senate term in 2018.

The president, who did issue several tweets providing updates on Harvey, also received harsh criticisms for tweeting attacks on NAFTA, Mexico and plugging Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke’s book.


The death toll from the storm has risen to five as of Sunday evening.
