Last week, the mainstream media thought they would try to get away with misrepresenting Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards’ words regarding Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s visit to the flood-ravaged state.

Before Trump’s visit, the governor expressed concern about the nominee’s visit and hoped that it didn’t turn into a photo op. a statement released by his office said, “We welcome him to Louisiana, but not for a photo-op. Instead we hope he’ll consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of the storm.”

The media heard something along the lines of, “We don’t want Trump to visit.”

In an interview on CNN, Edwards clarified his remarks and even had the guts to call out the media for mischaracterizing what he said.

“I didn’t dismiss his trip as a photo-op. Before he came down, I said we welcome him here, we want him to be helpful. And we hope that it doesn’t turn into a mere photo-op,” Edwards said.

Edwards said Trump’s visit to the state turned out to be a positive thing for Louisiana because it “helped to shine a spotlight on Louisiana and on the dire situation that we have here, that it was helpful.”
