MSNBC hosts on Friday jumped at the chance to bash former President George W. Bush over his handling of Hurricane Katrina on the 10th anniversary of the storm that ravaged the gulf coast. On NewsNation, host Tamron Hall proclaimed: “Many have said, including writer Douglas Brinkley and others, that this was the stain on his presidency that he could never recover from.”
Hall’s declaration came minutes before President Bush delivered a speech at a rebuilt New Orleans school. MSNBC contributor Trymaine Lee agreed: “Oh, that's right. When you think about the optics of those days 10 years ago when this city was on its knees...and you have this picture of President Bush flying over [in Air Force One], for many people it spoke to the distance between the people and government.”
