From the August 23 edition of Fox News' The Five:
JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): Let me just talk about some facts for a second here. One, the president had talked about going [to Louisiana] much earlier and was asked not to go by Governor John Bel Edwards. Why? Because you don't want all the attention to the president in the midst of a crisis and that totally makes sense. The second thing to say is $120 million in aid has been approved for Louisiana in the last two weeks. So this idea that, oh jee, nothing, the federal government is not doing -- no, no help. Wait a second. That's not true.
What happened with President Bush and Katrina 11 years ago, was the left -- this is what Greg was saying -- attacked him and they thought, oh. But, you know what, there was real failure by FEMA during that time. And I think people will acknowledge that. So that's not the point.
DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): Well the other thing is, we didn't cover this story about the floods until it became political either.
PERINO: And we should have done more.
